Hello, out there. Upcoming books include Louisiana Breakdown, a novella out this spring from Golden Gryphon, and A Handbook of American Prayer will be out in November from 4Walls8Windows. A collection of Short Fiction, Trujillo, due out from PS publishing in early '04. I'm working on a novel called A Startled Outcry and finishing a three linked novella sort of novel, as yet untitled, set in Honduras on the Mosquito Coast...I've been doing some work down there with paralyzed divers, getting wheelchairs sent down and etc. It's an astonishing area and I expect I'll be writing stories setdown there for quite a while.

Hi,
Jason, I'm just not sure when Schaefer's coming out with the Colt. I know there's a pub date, but.....I'll wait til I see it.

Greg, the stories in TRUJILLO will be:

An orginal novella entitled Trujillo.
Jailwise which will be on ScfFI
Senor Volto which will also be on SciFI
The Park Sweeper
Only Partly Here
The Same old Story (Polyphony 2)
The Drive in Puerto Rico...
The Taborin Scale (A griaule story also original to the collection)
there will be two more stories and we haven't selected them yet.


A Handbook of American Prayer will be a three novella thing, with the title story and Crocodile Rock and Eternity and Afterward.

Hi, Lucius. I finished Vanentine 6 months or so ago and really enjoyed it. It's good to see your output picking up in the not to distant future. I've missed your literary voice. Question for you. When I saw you at the World Con in 1995, Mark Ziesing was talking about publishing A Handbook of American Prayer under his imprint. Is this the same book?

Hi, Scott...and thanks.
I wrote a long story called A Handbook of American Prayer that Mark was going to print. Unfortunately my computer ate it and data retrieval then couldn't save it. This is a new story with the same basic underlying idea...probably better than the original. Not as long, for sure. Smarter writer, too...at least I'm pretty sure I'm smarter.

Hello Mr. Shepard,

Is your upcoming novella AZTECHS from Subterranean the same as the one that appeared on scifi.com? Great cover on the book edition!

Also, do you plan on collecting some of your earlier stories (such as "Skull City" or "Voyage South Through Thousand Willows") some day (if a publisher was interested)?

Thanks!

Hi, Andrew,,,,

Yeah, it's the same novella. Aztechs.

As to a clean-up collection, yeah, I suppose I'll do one eventually. Actually there's been some talk, but I'm not real interested in doing such a collection right now. Maybe a couple years down the line.

Thanks for the Trujillo list, Lucius, and nice job on "Only Partly Here" (just read it in March Asimov's).

One more question about your upcoming publications, if you don't mind. You had mentioned in an interview a couple years back a three novella collection titled The Iron Shore--was that the working title for your Honduras project?

Lucius Shepard
Posted on Thursday, February 06, 2003 - 06:58 pm:   

Hi, Gregg...

Glad you liked the 9/11 story.

The Iron Shore was to be the lead novella in the 4Walls8WIndows collection. It is a Honduran story. But it started getting too long and I set it aside. I still intend to do the story; but I need to let it sit for a while so I can come at it fresh. I don't want it to be a novel, which is what it was threatening to be. Now I think I see a way to keep it under 40,000 words.

Dear Mr. Shepard,

Do you think you can arrange to have more of your stuff come out between February and August? With the season over, there's not much to do, you know?

Hey, if you're a smarter writer now, are you still a Miami fan? Switched your allegiance to any other Big East Powerhouses yet?

Hi Bored in Oregon,

As to arranging my publishing schedule to fill in the baseball season, I'll have to see what I can do.

I assume that your allusion to my longstanding devotion to the Hurricanes is somehow cynical, taking into account the Great Tostitos Robbery. We are not amused. :-) As you surely must know, the remainder of the Big East is unto Miami as an infestation of fleas upon the flank of a mighty stag.

You know....

Posted on Thursday, February 06, 2003 - 09:28 pm:   

My dear, confused Mr. Shepard,

While you may not be amused, I must take you to task on a point of grammar. "We" is the plural pronoun and surely no sentence concerning devotion to the Hurricanes would require use of the plural.

And, while I have no doubt that the flank of the mighty stag that is Miami may itch from time to time, the rest of the Big East draws near it no to infest, but to kick.

To show the humility, even in the face of powerhouseness, the rest of the Big East is possessed of, I have arranged to have a case of Salsa delivered to your residence at first light.

I remain,

very truly yours and very bored in Oregon.

p.s. Jason -- hey, pick of a spot, man, you know what I'm sayin'?

Hi again, Bored...

doubtless your nom du cyberspace relates in some way to a fascination on your part with the lower depths--dare I say, the pits--of the Big East. As to the prospect of ass-kickings from that quarter, Yes, I must confess that all Miami trembles in anticipation of a humiliation so long delayed. I can only guess the focus of your sporting affection, but I would imagine you follow a team who had some mild success in the Falafil Hut Cabbage Bowl versus a powerhouse from the MAC. Big doin's, huh? Perhaps one day you can look forward to playing in a bowl named for a brand of soup versus the third place ACC team. I'll just hope for you, shall I?

Appreciate the salsa. You might want keep some. I hear it goes good with crow...

Lucius

Posted on Friday, February 07, 2003 - 04:07 pm:   

Well, Mr. Shepard, I hear crow tastes just like spotted owl, so I never touch the stuff myself.

As it happens, the team which has won my eternal fealty actually played in a bowl named for a trait many Miami fans lack, though not you of course. When my team was confronted with a pack of grain-fed mouth-breathers decorated with "OSU" they came away victorious.

But let's call it a triumph of superior officiating and agree to disagree.

Maybe we should talk about something else since I fear that football scholars such as ourselves may be the minority at a discussion board devoted to literature, don't you think?
Have you been writing any poetry lately?

I think it's politic of you to abandon the fray football wise. Since you mention OSU, I imagine we're talking about Pitt-Oregon State. Wasn't that The-Network-Doesn't-Have-A-Game-The- Thursday-Before-New-Years-So-Let's-Put- Them-In-That-Slot-Bowl?

Yes, I am writing poetry. A long science fantasy narrative [poem currently in at about 40 pages, and some shorter stuff, and then some poems for the short novel A HANDBOOK OF AMERICAN PRAYER. They're actually prayers disguised as poems.

Speaking of "The Golden," Lucius, in the back of the red-plastic limited of "The Last Time," there is mention of follow-up work in the same vein and/or featuring the same characters (something along those lines). Is such a thing still a possibility?

BTW, I'm very happy that you are back to publishing new works frequently. I missed your writing a lot during your "quiet period."

Lucius,

Just got my copies of Louisiana Breakdown and Aztechs from Amazon, so apparently there are still some floating around out there. I'm stoked! Great cover on Aztechs, btw.

I have to say that your "collaboration" with JK Potter works well; the illustrations really complement your stories, esp. the ones in Jaguar Hunter. I am curious: how did your partnership come about? Was it set up, or were you friends beforehand?

Peter,

the late Jim Turner, the editor at Arkham House, assigned JK to The Jaguar Hunter, and we started talking on the phone and got to be friends. He's going to be doing the cover for my short story collection coming next year. JK's a real original, let me tell ya. I got stories...but I'm sworn never to reveal them.

Hope you enjoy the books.

Michael, the prayers in HANDBOOK are poems. Here's one written for a small business.

Prayer for Lyle Gallant's All-State Insurance

Silver tubes and plastic wires for our final bedsides.
The technology of comfort guaranteed.
Premiums dwindle to a platiunum trickle in our veins.
God's specter rises in the needles and the drips,
and the perfect nurse with plum-tipped tits
and a smile like Satan's high school hooker
comes to bless us with her medicine lips.
Give us these splendid isolations,
these painless promises and miracle cures.
Grant us dreams of TV Movie-Of-The-Week endings.
Deliver us the kiss-shaped candy of the afterlife.
Insure that the musical limits of our financial independence
will never be exceeded by the threnody of pain.

Amid the secrets of contracts,
in the efficacy of his full term life
and the glorious oxymoron of death benefits,
we see Lyle, pushing sixty, a castaway Viking
with eyes the color of glaciers at twilight,
marooned upon a hot oceanless beach.
What does he know when he stands
in his little cube of boxed-in coldness
with the immense red hands of his company above?
What does he think when we walk past?
Pray for the sentience of his hopes,
the sanctity of his non-exemption clauses,
the lustrous complicities of his neigbborhood policies.

In the orange and gold evening
of our winter in the desert,
a long tongue of silence flicks out
to touch the roof of Lyle Gallant's All-State,
and the peaceful treaties he has made
with death, with accident, with disaster,
their letters come alive like liquid snakes,
arrange themselves in cabalistic orchestrations
that speak the names of the Great Beneficiaries.
In the midst of this chaos of delirious spell,
Lyle strides between his office and Scotty's Cavern,
making his ordinary way, his supple mental rounds,
prowling the difficult moral peninsula that lies
along West Eldorado Street, out to the state road,
contriving a demarcation, a strip of thorny principle
separating the actuarial from the infinite,
while a wind troubles the brim of his hat
beneath which breeds a Swedenborgian magic,
some rickety law of devils and divinity
that requires only faith and business to sustain it,
and the sun opens, round and coral red
like a lizard's mouth, head lifted on the horizon,
trying to drink the air.

Hi Lucius,

I really liked “The Same Old Story” from Polyphony 2. Perfect example of what Jeff Ford was saying about you on his board, putting the political into the story without sacrificing the story or making it didactic. And the story...lush and claustrophobic. I felt as trapped as Pete as I saw the end coming. Great job.

Hi Lucius,

I've been a fan of yours for several years now and, if you don't mind, I’d like to ask you a couple of questions regarding your new and soon to be released books...

Right. You didn’t say “no”, so I’ll just jump right in…

1. "Floater": According to the most recent Nick Gevers interview... this is "a stark yet opulent existential thriller about the operations of voodoo practitioners in New York City". Well, that sounds f*cking cool to me. I'm looking forward to reading this... but can you tell me... Do you expect this book to be released in North America? I'll admit I'm something of a L.S. collector,,, but the postage alone on something weighing 25 lbs must be a fortune (just kidding - I realize that's the price!).

2. Will the "Handbook of American Prayer", due this year from 4W8W, include "Eternity and Afterwards"? I've heard you mention that you intended this book to be a 3 novella deal, but the interview seems to indicate otherwise,,, " ‘Handbook’ is no longer a collection. The title story grew too long and so John Oakes, after a discussion back and forth, decided to publish it on its own."

3. I just saw a cover scan of the HB "Col. Rutherford's Colt" (another outstanding Potter cover BTW - like a Grateful Dead nightmare). Is this book actually for sale? I've had this on order for,,, well,,, a long time now. The Sub. Press site still says "Pre-Orders Only”. Wuz up?

4. Does “Sports and Music” (which Amazon currently lists as "available" - yippee), include any more musician profiles similar to the one of Miles Davis that you recently posted on this board? What makes up the content of “Sports and Music”?

So, now that I've been a pest, I'd just like to say, I really love your writing! I’m always searching for mags that contain your stories and I try to stay up-to-date on your new books.

All the best,
Rich

Rich:

1) PS ships to North America as well; the price for the hardcover FLOATER is, I think, $45. Some online dealers might have it for a few dollars' discount.

3) Despite that Amazon.com says "shipping in 3-5 weeks, I believe that SubPress has not actually released it yet.

Posted on Monday, June 30, 2003 - 08:22 am:   

Hey, Rich...

Floater has no US publisher to date. I'm not sure it will have one -- I haven't submitted it as yet, and it's a weird length piece, 45000 words, so I don't know how marketable it is.

All I know of COL. Rutherford is that I'm supposed to be receiving the signature pages soon.

Sports and Music is just a little chapbook I did that contains two stories, Sports In America, which appeared in Playboy, and A Little Night Music.

The piece on Miles will be appearing in The Nation very soon.

A HANDBOOK OF AMERICAN PRAYER has turned into a full-fledged novel and will be delayed until January. It will not contain any other work.

One of the stories intended for the novella collection will be in my short story collection TRUJILLO, due next year from PS. Eternity and Afterward will likely be held back to add to an American sale and be out in 2005.

Thanks for the interest, man...

Dear Lucius,

I just read all four installments of "Jailwise." It was really twisty and dark and cool. Really fucking cool. Lots of little side pipes and crennellations (sp?) Still thinking about it three days after finishing part four. Did you crib from any specific mythologies, or did it bubble up?

Hey, Mikey...

"Really fucking cool" are words that warm this writer's heart.

As mentioned on another thread, the research I did for this one did not involve books, but rather a misspent youth, so I guess you could say it just bubbled up.

In any case, thanks for the kind words. I'm pleased you liked it.

I thought you might get a kick out of this.

A friend of mine went to DragonCon last weekend (he was speaking on a panel about web comics). I sent him with a list of books to pick up for me. He found two: Jaguar Hunter and a book by Clark Ashton Smith. The guy selling the books commented that my friend was the first person to buy something at the Con that showed good taste.

I'm not sure if it was Smith, you, or both that signify good taste, but I'm guessing it was both.

Thanks, Robert. Yeah, I never been to DragonCon, but have heard stories. An acquaintance of mine, a fantasy writer, ambled in one afternoon and was shortly thereafter approached by a dominatrix in full gear who offered a whipping, which he declined, whereupon she accused him of being bring, whereupon he opined that it was people who were obsessed with their own sexuality who were truly boring. Sounds like he held his own with the dominatrix, but then slunk away from the con, shamed by being a writer. It sounds like a freaking zoo. An illiterate freaking zoo.

Thanks Lucius. I did some more checking around, and realised that I'd also overlooked "A Walk in the Garden". By my estimation, that's over a quarter million words of new stories. Are you taking something ::

Poverty's a great motivator, Jonathan. :-)

BTW, Louisiana Beakdown is technically also short fiction, clocking in at 38000.

Liar's House is, should you need to know, 17,500.

Is this the most prolific year of your career? I should add, as much as I love "R&R" and some of the other work that came out in the mid to late 80s, I don't think I've ever seen you writing better, or at as consistently high a level. It's pretty damn impressive. I also meant to ask, are there any plans for an official website (I thought I saw a mention over at TTA a while back)?

Hi Lucius,

I try to keep track, too. I can manage to track down most of what Jonathan has mentioned but...
"The Sentence," is from the third Polyphony, I believe, and not yet out to the general public (Reviewers get an early view. He got "Floater" early, too). Where did "The Park Sweeper," appear? I can't track it down. And if I can tie into another thread, where can I find a copy of "suppressed" story Chango?

If you follow this link (http://members.iinet.net.au/~jstrahan/2003_09_01_archive.html#106307101995937426), I've got all of the sources etc listed.

BillC,

I have no idea even where Chango was published and it was written pre-computer. So I can't point you in any direction. The Sentence will be in Polyphony 3. The Park Sweeper is in the next issue of the Third ALternative, It's a shortish novella.

I know "Chango" was in the June 1989 issue of David Memmott's Ice River. How you'd go about getting that is anyone's guess.

Posted on Monday, September 08, 2003 - 09:59 pm:   

Jonathan, Thanks for the kind words. I have no idea if this year is the most prolific or not. I've been working hard for the past several years . For instance I'm about to hand in about 130000 more words in three stories. I know I'm enjoying writing more than ever, and I think I'm doing some of it better than I've done before. I'd like to slow down a little, but right now I'm just in a zone, kinda. I'm also going to be doing a series of collaborative stories, and I'm also writing some stories under a pen name. So you can basically add another 50000 words.

Lucius, Jonathan,

Thanks for the responses. Apologies for not getting back as fast as you guys do. How do you, Lucius, maintain the prodigious word output and you, Jonathan, keep up the webpage (wow!), while adding so many timely posts on the bb? I pop in and brouse but seldom have time to comment and almost never time to stick around for replies.

Anyway, "Chango" is the one non-current story that I haven't found and read. I run a search on ABE periodically but it doesn't show up. I'm hoping that it might be in that "clean up" collection, whenever/if ever, it arrives.

Regardless, I look forward to the new stuff as it comes.

Cheers!

Thank you for your answer on the pen name.

As for snaging a copy of "Chango" from Ice River here are some details. Ice River Number 4 is vol. 3 no. 1. Your local library can request a photocopy via Interlibrary Loan. That issue of Ice River is owned by the University of Oregon, the University of California at Berkeley, University of Wisconsin at Madison and SUNY at Buffalo.

Ask a librarian.

Fantastic Metropolis has just put up my best of the year list--and, unsurprisingly, Lucius Shepard's body of work published in 2003 is in my top slot. I don't think you'll get much disagreement from most people. I think it was stunning quality meshed with stunning quantity. Thanks for making 2003 such an enjoyable reading experience for me.

Hi, Jonathan....

The book ended up almost 300, 000 words. TRUJILLO alone is 55,000. That was a big enough book, everyone decided. As for the other story, I'm incorporating it into the big dragon thing I'm doing.

As for Ariel, I wanted to keep this collection all fantasy/ Yeah, I got enough for another collection. Especially with the stories I'll finish in the first half of this year. Nick G and I talked about doing another one. We'll see.

Hi Lucius,

I bugged you about six months ago about an epic poem you were working on titled 'Conduct'. You mentioned it in an Infinity Plus interview and it just kind of stuck in my head as something I'd like to read. Just wanted to say thanks again. I went through a tough time health wise and your work was a real comfort.

Many Thanks,

Do you plan to publish 'Conduct'? That would be terrific.

Just as an aside, I collect books only if I plan to reread them and am something of a Shepard completist. Therefore, I purchased a Lillabulero pamphlet [Winter, 1968] a couple of years ago expecting your early poem. Imagine my surprise!

Does the dissolution of SCI-FICTION going to have much impact on how much short fiction you write per year, seeming as though it was the highest paying market by a fair margin, and you are a full time writer, will it be as economically feasible to write as much short fiction as you used to.

Hi Lucius - I just finished your story "Jailwise" and enjoyed it quite a bit. It looks like you left plenty of room for a sequel too. Looking over some of the comments on this discussion page I see that you wrote something on my man Miles Davis which I will have to track down. I'm a collector of J.K. Potter stuff too, but have never been able to get to know him, as I would like to. I think we would click on a lot of levels. I got some original drawings of his from a guy who had Bud White's stash, and it was interesting to see what he was like when he was not doing photo art. I hope to start doing some photo manipulation myself soon. My own art now is drawings and paintings. Interesting that you picked up on Max Ernst. I've always loved his "Europe After the Rain" and collage pieces. He's an inspiration. Do you do any of this kind of creating yourself, in addition to writing ?
