REVIEWS: Boy Howdy

It has often been pointed out to me that I have all the zeal for self-promotion of a lungfish peacefully buried under the cracked surface of a droughty pond. I hear that someone’s written something nice about my work, and instead of whirling into a well-oiled mechanical dervish of reposting, tweeting, fbooking, tumbling, googleplexing, and God only knows what else you damned hyperevolved internet big brains do, I sink back down into my mudhole and placidly wait for the monsoon.

I have a nasty headache and can’t see out of one eye, so I’m Googling myself. On blackout day. Because I can’t read anyway. Or draw. So here’s what cleverer people have to say:

    Land ho!

    All caught up. Meaning, today I finished Voice, thus ending my steady voyage through the Finder oeuvre.


    You’ve got these sketches posted. I’m itching to sail through them. Is there already a schedule for their (Torch’s) publication?

  2. Speed says:

    TORCH is next year’s book; 2012′s is 3RD WORLD, currently serialized in DARK HORSE PRESENTS.

    Here’s the thing: most of what is up now will not end up in the finished book. I’m not happy with it as it is, and have been grinding out a vastly different script for TORCH since I fell off the shelf here.

    I will make a formal announcement as to when you guys can expect TORCH to begin again, in radically different form.

    I’m sorry that you became unhappy with the work-in-progress. You don’t usually post much about story construction, but if you feel like venting a little about what you see as having gone wrong, I think people would be interested.

    Looking forward to New Stuff!

  4. Speed says:

    Oh, I hope to comment extensively, since it’s been a really interesting process. You’ll all be getting a much better book. Yes, I well may be leaving out some of your favorite bits, but books do that. They’ll all make great outtakes, or maybe make their way into the next book.
