Nickel will be back, and he will ride onto the horizon later this year, right now September or October look likely.
That said, there is at least one other familiar face coming along as well, and it’s not Arrow.
I love sharing new work with you ladies and gents, but I have to admit, I’m really excited about this one. I’ll update when I can, but what I can say for sure is that this never would have happened without my friends/fans. You guys wanted this, and spoke loudly enough that it needed to happen.
Thanks so much,
When you read that, what do you think of?
More news to come, but I have a feeling that a lot of you guys are going to like this…
I’m pretty stoked about this, as I love this story, and that Amazon is featuring more short fiction with the new Story Front program.
Thirty years hasn’t changed Las Vegas—the desert just got dirtier. The biggest game in town centers on a massive, deadly roller coaster that winds its way through the Strip’s most famous attractions. On the first Saturday of every month, twenty-four desperate passengers get strapped into the notorious ride and gamble with their lives in a twisted game of chance, to the thrill of webcast audiences worldwide. One of them will win, and one will die, but the other twenty-two will escape with nothing but their lives. Bets are placed as the ride begins, but in Vegas, the house always wins.
The Ride by acclaimed author Aric Davis is a terrifying near-future vision of bloodlust-as-entertainment taken to a horrific extreme.
I’ve been keeping this under my shirt, but it’s worth noting that The Fort, Nickel Plated, and A Good and Useful Hurt have all been optioned for possible future film/television production, and yours truly has been tasked with writing the first drafts of the screenplays. Who knows where this will head, but I’ll keep you all up to date with any good news that may come.
I’ll be hosted by my friends at Schuler Books on July 23rd to do a brief reading and signing session for The Fort. If you’re in the area you should stop by!
Oh, and I’m writing again, so that’s exciting. I should have more to share in that regard soon.
This is so awesome! Thanks for the great review, Sean!
Well this is pretty darn cool, much thanks to Kirkus for this.
But all three free copies of The Fort have been claimed. Perhaps we’ll do some more in a few weeks as it gets closer to release, but as of now my stack is getting a little low.
This is the post where I give away free copies of The Fort. Message me on here, I get back to you, signed galley in your mailbox. First three responses get a paperback.
A big thank you to everyone who made it out to Schuler Book’s and Music last night for the event. Regrettably, there were so few of you that it would be easy to just name you all, but I do really appreciate your traveling to see me blather for a few minutes after driving through a blizzard. The one good thing to take away from it is that I’ll be doing another event in a few months when The Fort releases. If we get a blizzard in June I’ll eat my hat.
