I have just received the proofs of my new novella Dr. Black and the Guerrillia.

It is going to be a limited edition and, I imagine, a very beautiful book – put out, in English, by a Slovenian publisher.

This book has now been printed, though I still have not seen the finished product. Still, two books on the same day is not bad.

I will post further details in the nearish future.

Details will be forthcoming Forrest. But it is "Guerrillia". In this novella we see Dr. Black moving through the South American country of San Corrados.

I just received a copy of this book. It is really very nice! It is on a beautiful Italian paper, with the text printed in brown and illustrations by John Connell done in black. It is also handstitched and hardcover, with the cover embossed (is that the right word?) with a small drawing. The jacket is in a pastel lime green. The edition is 300. 83pages plus an end page with an illustration.

A note: For people in the UK and Europe shipping is typically less than for the US (usually about 5 Euros second class mail).

I should mention that the review, by George Sotirhos is actually from Universal Pathways, a Greek SF magazine, that also puts out an English edition.

A random extract of Dr. Black and the Guerrillia:

Black was instructed in ritual, underwent initiations; a long exposure beneath a roaring waterfall; ceremonial wrestling; and viewing of the sacred musical instruments: a horn made from the arm bone of some ancient enemy, shrill and mournful of tone, the kespix, the bull-roarer which breathed sounds which excite men, and the two-holed flute, the sight and noise of which was forbidden to females and children. And for three days he was only allowed to eat food prepared by a postmenopausal woman.

Another random extract of Dr. Black and the Guerrillia:

Doctor Black’s hands were tied behind his back with his own shoelaces. He was marched down the hill, over an expanse of field and then to the east, through the jungle.

The camp was set up in a clearing and was composed of about twenty tents concealed beneath camouflage netting. Men carrying Kalishnikovs and AK-47’s sat on the grass or leaned against trees, smoking hand-rolled cigarettes. A few played cards in front of their tents. Three or four marksmen could be seen perched in the branches of trees in case of emergency.

Dr. Black was taken before a tent somewhat larger than the rest. Alonzo entered and came out a moment later accompanied by a short man with a sensual nose, a romantic moustache and a huge, heavily shadowed chin. The thick hair on his head was made manageable and lustrous with brilliantine and combed with religious care. He stood erect, as one who both deserves and receives respect; obviously a superior of some sort.

“Who is this?” he asked.

“A spy.”

“Evidence?”

“He was snooping around the observation point.”

“Did you search him?”

“Yes.”

“And?”

“He had a cientipedoro.”

“The white thief would look best with a corte corbata,” commented Xefe sullenly.
