Every year, someone gets to ask Lucius the musical question: What's up for this year? [Sorry, andres!]

Fuck, I don't know. I got a bunch of stories in Datlow anthos, some of which will be out this year--The Beastly Bride, i'm pretty sure will be out. A novella from Subterranean, the Taborin Scale, and the Viator Plus collection which is a 2010 book.

The rest I'll have to tell you later.

Hey Lucius, NOT that there isn't enough new stuff lined up for publication this year, but...is WITH CHRISTMAS IN HONDURAS still coming out from Thunder's Mouth Press in September?

Just over at Subterranean Press, it's reported that LS's forthcoming novella, 'The Taborin Scale' has been given a starred review by Publisher's Weekly, to wit:

"Master literary fantasist Shepard (Vacancy) makes a grim return to the world of his classic surrealist short story ‘The Man Who Painted the Dragon Griaule.’ Beautifully written and intensely ironic, this tale will strongly appeal to connoisseurs of sophisticated adult fantasy."

Hey Lucius,

Out of Saudi for 10 days, on a visa run to the U.K. Just arrived at the in-laws' to find a copy of Viator Plus waiting for me. Can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to reading some of your stuff from the (professionally) printed page. Yay!

Lucky Rich. The folks at PS just told me that their printer was dreadfully late, which explains why the slipcased VIATOR PLUS was delayed. I'll have to wait one or two weeks.

Subterranean are sending me a new copy of Viator Plus because I ended up with one with all the pages bound upside down inside. So it sounds like PS might be having a bit more trouble at the printers than the slipcases!

Lucius, any particular reason The Father of Stones has never been collected in one of your short story collections? Is it just waiting for the inevitable Griaule book maybe?

Lucius: ya _gotta_ include "The Father of Stones" in that long-planned Griaule book/collection (which won't happen, I know, till after you've finished the other novella for Subterranean). A Griaule collection with "Stones" is like a day without sunshine (sorry: Anita Bryant possesed my keyboard for a moment).

Lucius: I am a direct descendant of Lee Christmas and have heard mention of your book "With Christmas in Honduras." Obviously, given my connection to the General, I am eager to read your book. I hope that you are successful in finding a publisher/distributor. You may already know this, but Pelican Publishing publishes books with a Louisiana connection. http://pelicanpub.com/default.asp

Man, I loved "Father of Stones." There are a couple of passages in it that strike me as some of the most vivid, moving and palpable I've ever read. And the way the story played out made the story seem much larger on the inside than on the outside.

Anyway, sorry you don't like that one. Tell you what: I'll like it for you, ease your burden. How's that? It's the least I can do.

At last. Got my copy of Viator Plus yesterday. Not slipcased but traycased. A stunning piece of bookcraft.
The stories will have to wait until I'm back from holidays, unfortunately. I don't want the book to get mauled.

Finally got my March Locus and yes, it mentions a Griaule collection by ORBooks is coming on swift wings! It's also mentioned that a new novella will sweeten the deal...'Beautiful Blood' perhaps? Can you comment on contents and timing, Lucius, or is a bit premature? Cheers.

The new novella will be the Skull, about a guy who lives in the dragon's skull after its death.'

Beautiful Blood will be a separate short novel from Subterranean.

Posting this were it belongs: DON'T FORGET to let us afficionados know when ORbooks is set to publish the GRIAULE book, Lucius. I don't subscribe to "Locus" anymore, and their site doesn't mention anything yet.

Finally got a copy of VIATOR PLUS on the way (wanted to wait until we were settled safely into a hous in Melb's north -- the East is crazy with people pretending to rent until they can sell the house out from underneath ya (the bubble never popped over here -- the Aussies can be suckers when it comes to paying too much for...ANYthing). Hey: didya remember to mention me prominently in the dedication to VIATOR PLUS? (What? One has to have done something to inspire the book to be mentioned there? _That_ explains why I keep getting let down everytime I open a book by a writer friend or acquaintence and don't see my name!)

Hey! Forgot to tell ya: looks like the survivalists in Michigan have certainly kept that book you were (or have been) working on, with a similar topic (THE END OF LIFE AS WE KNOW IT -- that right) very timely! Fundamentalist idiots (be they Christian, Muslim, Mormon or otherwise) _never_ fail to make me shake my head at their sheer lunacy. But the height of stupidity to which these guys rose -- putting a YOUTUBE video of their training online! -- sets a new a standard (could you imagine the crazy fucks who flew into the WTC doing the same)?

Thanks for the heads up, L. Just read the blog post on writers. It may be because I've never had much of an ego (a long, boring, personal story that extends back to a battered childhood), or it may be because I've never published any fiction (to speak of) and therefore have been "defined" as what the Aussies call a "journo," but...despite having read stories about Capote and Mailer, etc., I never really thought writers, as a whole, were vindictive or petty. I figured they thought like I did: we're all in this together, part of a dwindling crowd of literates who need to protect each other and court new readers. Then I had run-ins (interviews) with those who thought I was just a bother; or with those who connived and cajoled; those whose egos flared a little too brightly when criticized or not treated like royalty; and even those who weren't shy about slamming other writers by name.

Interviewing -- and getting to know -- writers DID open my eyes.

But in all fairness, I have to admit there have been more than a few who have been gracious, kind (even after I'd written a negative -- or at least not so positive -- review or two of their books), and just a lot of fun to hang out with or talk to now and then: Michael Crichton, Martin Cruz Smith, John Irving, Nevada Barr, Craig Nova, Stephen King, George RR Martin,Nancy Pickard, Alice Hoffman and quite a few more (even this one, verrrrrrrrrry laid back-sounding dude residing on the West Cost of the USA, last time I checked).

P.S. I don't count Irving's public "brawl" with Wolfe as talking "out of school" about other writers. That was above board. It's when it is done off the record that it get _truly_ nasty, and seems more...well, slimy.

Just finished "Dog-Eared Paperback": THAT is something which would have rested comfortably in your BEST OF Subterranean collection (if not in the main book, then in the paperback extra for limited version). Tour-de-force material, and one of the best -- if not _the best_ -- novellas that you've written this first decade of the new century. Reminded me -- in some ways -- of "All the Lies That Are My Life," by Ellison, with a more poetic bent to the prose.

L: You're welcome (and I'll stay away from the, um, other discussion, on the movie thread, if you will. We were getting no where fast anyway). As for the others who didn't like it: either they know something we don't, or they are part of that mass of men you often refer to as the idiot mainstream. It's easier for most to like chips and donuts and cheeseburgers than it is to enjoy roast lamb, kangaroo meat, custard apples and dragon fruit.

Lucius: save your breath (fingers, keystrokes). As I said on the other board, I agree with your "done here" remarks. As for "Dog-earred": It's a dynamite piece of work, no matter what you thought of my off-the-cuff analogies. Take care, write a lot, and be well.

From Subterranean: "We’ve turned away orders for over 400 copies of the new dragon Griaule novella, so you might want to order a copy from your favorite source soon, as we currently have no plans to reprint. Lucius’s many readers will be pleased to know we’re due to see a new, long (50k words) Griaule novella from him in the near future. [The Skull]

I don't know if you can talk to a human at Amazon, cancel the order and get over to Camelot Books. Good luck...

It states it's not yet in stock at Camelot too, they're taking pre-orders. Subterranean needs to increase the print runs on their books, it's ridiculous when you have to scramble to get a book before it goes out of print within a month after being published.

Jwk, Camelot has enough copies reserved to fill orders until they say unequivocally they don't...then the price drops from $35 to $0 on the order landing page. Drop them a line. You're welcome for the heads-up.

1500 copies is a large run for a small press and I'm sure SubPress was surprised with the heavy pre-ordering. I am not that surprised they don't do a second printing since they have a lot in the pipeline and mucking about with long-term publishing schedules probably doesn't serve a small press well.

I'm glad they're one of Lucius's stalwart publishers. They - and our good pals at NightShade! - style.

I got the message from Subterranean that a lot of on line retailers' orders wouldn't be filled, so cancelled my Amazon order. But it worked out OK because it's now $3 cheaper than the preorder was, so I ordered it again. And there's no "Only 3 copies remaining" messages, so it appears to be good for now.

What did I say?
This in, from amazon:
"Hello,
"The eruption of the volcano in Iceland — and the subsequent shutdown of air travel across much of Europe — caused a slowdown in delivery of Amazon shipments to European destinations. We wanted to let you know your order, if you haven't yet received it, could be delayed by several days: (...)
"I'm sorry for the inconvenience and hope you understand that occasionally a shipment may be delayed by circumstances beyond our control.
"We look forward to seeing you again soon."
Ain't globalization wonderful?
JD
PS: Now, this could refer to another book in the same order, which BTW arrived yesterday.

Hmmm...at my last count there's still BEAUTIFUL BLOOD and THE SKULL lurking in the weeds. And perhaps another? Still waiting for my copy of SCALE but I'm told it's on the way.

Great news on the two new collections, congrats!

The Taborin Scale is very beautiful, and exudes a genuine sense of wonder.

Seriously, I'll buy all the Dragon Griuale novellas even though my hunch is they will all be collected in one volume to be published by another publisher.

I've got five of the separate novellas looming on a book-shelf in my office; the only one that didn't get it's solo treatment, IIRC, was the first novelette. I'm thinking the collected Griaule could have a new, uncollected piece to sweeten the deal - but I've been wrong before.

Finished THE TABORIN SCALE last night...one of the best in the cycle.

Yeah, the collection will have a new one: The Skull. Glad you dug Taborin.

What is the title of the collection and when will it be available? Will it be published by Night Shade?

We haven't chosen a title--i'll be done Subterranean. I imagine next year, because I haven't even received contracts from my agent...
