Many of you have noticed that I’ve been missing from Twitter and the Forum and other social media for the last two weeks. Part of the reason for that was the Great Strep Throat Invasion of 2016, which laid waste on the denizens here at Casa Keene.
But then, after we beat back the Strep Throat hordes, I remained off social media because I found that I was actually getting some work done for a change. I suspect that very soon, my pre-readers will urge me to get back on social media simply because I keep sending them new things to pre-read. (In the last week alone, they’ve gotten the manuscript for a book called UNSAFE SPACES and a short story — set in the world of THE LOST LEVEL — called “The Chinese Beetle”).
So, yes. I suppose I’ll be back among you soon. But not this week. I’m on a roll and I’m not dead yet.
Filming of THE NAUGHTY LIST (the movie based on my short story “The Siqqusim Who Stole Christmas”) has officially wrapped. Director Paul Campion reports that the film is now in post-production. We can’t wait for you to see it.
Some Kickstarter rewards (signed books, etc.) will begin shipping before the end of the month.
THE COMPLEX drops this month in paperback and eBook. Advance reviewers seem to love it. You might dig it, as well. I can confidently say it is the bleakest, most nihilistic thing I have ever written. Here’s the cover (this is a mock-up and yes, I know there is a typo or two on it).
Okay. Back to work. As will be evident when you listen to this week’s podcast, I still haven’t completely beaten this horrid virus, but as I said above, there is work to be done and I’m not dead yet.
