Forthcoming in March: “Fable of the Swan”

I am not yet in a position to restart Hitherby or decide if it should be restarted.


I wanted to let you know that my next novel, “Fable of the Swan,” the first piece of the Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine transmedia project, should be ready for electronic release soon—roughly a week.

After that I’ll be picking up some scattered strands of my life, possibly including Hitherby.

“Fable of the Swan” has thematic connections to Fable of the Lamb, so you may want to reread that. Actually you may want to reread that anyway; it’s one of my favorite Hitherbies, although it’s full of spoilers if you haven’t read the rest. ^_^

  1. This is pretty much it!

    It is a novel. It is the first piece of a world-building project that will include some RPG stuff, additional books, and an artbook at probable minimum. If you like my writing, or if you like things that are good, you will probably want to read it. If you can’t read eBooks, you will probably have to wait and suffer for an unknown while between 3 months and 12 years before a print form becomes available. ^_^ If you like to read promotional material and previews before buying a book, I’m sure I’ll be posting a bunch of stuff on my google plus once it’s out and trying to get book reviewers to notice its existence. But I can’t even hardly get book reviewers to notice Nobilis, and that’s a popular and award-winning RPG. ^_^

    It is a Surrealist YA fantasy with a 13-16-year-old female protagonist (It spans 3 years, though it’s mostly set in the last one) set mostly in the Horizon neighborhood of Town. She and her friends discover that you can take out someone’s “key”—their heart, soul, and name—and use their flesh in magic. There’s also a magical park, Death’s sister, giants or at least their descendants, steampunk and mad science, a fox-eared boy, a book of might-have-beens, a Russian, a magic stone, and a handful of people who don’t have actual eyes but only windows onto the night.
