Putting Down New Pegs in an Old World
Updated: May 30
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.
