Ghost Boy, Volume 2 has just been released by Airship 27!

Featuring the creative talents of Terry Alexander, J.Walt Layne, Erik Franklin, interior artist Gary Kato, cover artist Zachary Brunner, and yours truly!

This is the project that I was INVITED to participate in by Captain Ron Fortier and Loyal Airman Rob Davis. It was a pleasure to work with them, and I have already been invited back to contribute future Ghost Boy adventures!

For those who came in late concerning the character, here's a brief recap from the press release concerning the book...

It is the mid-60s and the U.S. is in thick of the Cold War with the Soviet Union and Red China. The country’s greatest asset is Ghost Boy, a young genius with amazing supernatural powers, and his eight foot tall steel and chrome robot, Pops. Ripped from the pages of Jigsaw Comics, Ghost Boy returns in this collection of four brand new adventures.

In a couple of weeks, I will be doing a BACK STORY post with the background details concerning my tale, "The Sound of Obedience".

The book is already available in print from Amazon, and the Kindle edition is coming soon!

Chapter 18 of ALPHA, BOOK 2: WAYWARD SON is now in the hands of my friendly neighborhood beta/proofreader for review. Barring anything unseen, I am working on Chapter 19 right now, which should conclude the novel.
Please remember that the overall manuscript will still have to be reviewed in its entirety to make sure it flows like a seamless whole before submitting it to the publisher, so we're still looking at a 2016 release date on the book.

Airship 27 is still foreseeing an October release on LEGENDS OF NEW PULP FICTION: THE TOMMY HANCOCK BENEFIT ANTHOLOGY.
63 writers and 30 artists have joined their creative talents to help an ailing friend and his family pay his medical expenses and other bills.

Each tale will have 1 illustration accompanying it, and the latest word is that the last of the art is all that's left on the production end of things.
More details soon.

Meanwhile, I better get back to writing.
See you around the Internet!
