Lost Things!

It gives me enormous pleasure to announce that Lost Things, the supernatural thriller set in the 1920s that I wrote with Melissa Scott, has sold to Crossroad Press!

Crossroad Press is the publisher that did The Ravens of Falkenau and Other Stories last spring, and I'm absolutely delighted to be working with David Niall Wilson again, a great editor and a great guy. Lost Things will be published in both ebook and trade paperback, as Ravens was, and I expect the release date will be late in the spring or early in the summer.

A couple of weeks ago I put up an excerpt from the first chapter here if you'd like to get a look at it!

Lost Things is set in 1929 and in style it's a lot like the original Raiders of the Lost Ark -- that mix of archaeology, action, fantasy and romance with a bit of aviation thrown in. Here's the tag for it.

The world is full of lost treasures. Some of them are better off not found.

In 1929 archaeologists began draining Lake Nemi looking for a fabulous treasure. What they awakened had been buried for two thousand years. For a very good reason.


So come along with us! Join Dr. Jerry Ballard, an archaeologist badly wounded in World War I who will do anything to get back in the game, and his friends Alma Gilchrist, Mitchell Sorley, and Lewis Segura who together run a small aviation business, on a deadly treasure hunt that will lead them from Hollywood of the 1920s to New York to a doomed airship over the North Atlantic, and finally to the Groves of Diana at Aricia! Come along! We promise it's quite a ride!
