Putting Down New Pegs in an Old World

Updated: May 30, 2021

I'm currently working through a rough draft of a new project that will hopefully be the link between Day Boy and Stone Road, and will hopefully be a kind of niche but interesting to the right person collection, which doesn't have a name right now, but might be called Putting Down the Pegs of the World, but probably won't be.


Part of that project has been two new stories set in the Day Boy world, and it has been a delight. I love that world, and I have had enough distance from it that it is very interesting returning to the lands of the Red City, and walking around its landscape.


I'm an older, wiser, and happier person (hopefully a better one) than I was when I wrote in that world last. If the Death Works Books and Roil dominated my thirties, this land in Day Boy and the Stone Road has dominated my forties. I'm hoping for something different in the decade that looms ahead (but not yet, damn it!).


I'm hope people will enjoy the new stories when they are ready. Regardless, it's been fun, and in these few days of lockdown in Brisbane, it's been a nice thing to do.

Hi Trent, I stumbled across Day Boy at a bookshop last week and have devoured it over the past two days. It is brilliant, and I am so excited to hear that you are going to venture into this world again- I also cannot wait for The Stone Road. I am ashamed to say I had not read one of your books until now, especially since I am also from Brisbane! Off to purchase your entire back catalogue. And belated congratulations on the birth of your baby! I have three, and they are my favourite creations.

Oh! Thank you! I have to warn you, my backlist is quite different to Day Boy, as much as I love those books, I feel like I've gotten better, but we all have to start somewhere. And thank you so much for the congratulations, I couldn't imagine life without our kids!

Wow, just read this. Massively excited to read you're interested in returning to the Day Boy world. It was a bleak and haunting one, but that just made the tender moments all the more precious. Can't wait to read Stone Road.
