Cities and suburbs, real and imaginary.

Just put the signed contract in the post.

MAZE, a mosaic novel, will be forthcoming from Apex Books sometime in 2011(?). They are also going to pull LAST DRAGON back into print.

J M McDermott’s MAZE, in which four intertwining lives find other survivors in a huge otherworldly maze, where trolls hunt the halls, minotaurs are meat, and light gives life to a woman that falls from an embryo in a sleeping man’s lung.

I've mentioned it a little bit here, here, here, and here

All those abandoned fragments of imminent worlds, rewritten, repurposed, or removed, have been popping up here and there in this blog.

MAZE is coming. It's been coming a long time.

If light speaks to you. If it comes to you in the night. If it says "Put me in your lung". If it speaks and has a name. Don't do it. Even if you want to help it, don't.

Not only are they publishing your new book, but they're republishing your old one?

You the man.

That's awesome news, Joe. Congratulations! I'll look forward to picking up both.

Ooh! I've been scared of shadows in thin corridors ever since I saw the library episodes of Dr Who a year or two ago... now I have to be frightened of light in enclosed spaces as well? Eek :)
