Hi everyone! My apologies for being absent the last month and a half or so, but I was finishing my new book. It's now at a new publisher. All of my books in the past have been published by Adventures Unlimited Press, but this new one will be put out by Adam Parfrey's Feral House, which is located in Port Townsend, Washington. Adam tells me that it will be pre-released in ca. February of 2009, and actual release will be ca. April 2009.
The subject? Well, I'll let the title speak for itself: The Philosophers' Stone: The American "Gold," The Soviet "Mercury," and the Nazi "Serum": The Alchemical Wedding of Ancient and Modern Physics. We don't yet know its projected retail price, but I imagine it will fall in the same range as my other books. And yes, I'm already working on my next book... Subject? Well, that's still confidential!
Some of you have emailed me privately about Mr. Hoagland's recent announcements that he, Mike Bara, and I will be collaborating on a sequel to his Dark Mission. This is true. Over the course of the past few months we've been emailing back and forth and exchanging ideas on what we're going to do. So I guess I'm working on two books.
Also, I'd like to thank the many people who so generously made donations in the past two months....this is greatly appreciated and I cannot thank all of you enough. Many people have the erroneous idea that because someone is published they are - if not wealthy, at least - well off. This isn't true. I've reached the stage where I'm writing and researching almost fulltime, but the books are not yet quite sustaining me, so your donations were (and are) so greatly appreciated!
Finally, a word of apologies for being so absent on my articles and posts as I was finishing the book. I hope to return to more regular posting in a few days. Thank you all again for your interest and support.
Keep that dial right here....
