Big plans for 2009: From Blackglass, another 2 KAGEMONO volumes–or perhaps one big one. UNGENRED, a trade collection of ‘literary’ stories (by which I mean the stories that don’t have monsters, gunfights and exploding vehicles) Finally, my graphic novel MCBLACK (which is exclusively about monsters, gunfights and exploding vehicles) THE SIXSMITHS, a graphic novel/webcomic with J. Marc Schmidt. DEUCE, a miniseries with Nic Hunter. I’ll also be aiming to finish up my novel FAERIE APOCALYPSE pretty soon, and I’m still looking for a home for BLOODY WATERS. — JF FacebookTwitterTumblrEmail
