I've made a three-book deal (with option for a fourth) with HarperCollins's Angry Robot imprint for a contemporary fantasy series about a mild-mannered actuary who becomes a caped-crusader crime fighter, via the unwilling assistance of a demon who talks and dresses like Jimmy Cagney in a 1930s gangster movie. The (somewhat abridged) first three chapters of the first book -- title is The Actuary: To Hell and Back -- will run as "Hell of a Fix," the cover story in the December/January issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. The novel itself is scheduled for release in August 2010.

Thank you Rande:

It will be out in August 2010 in the UK, and October 2010 in the US and Canada. I'm 56,500 words into the draft and it's coming along nicely.
