East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

Back to Old Shanghai

Shanghai-IncidentAnd just when it looked like I was well on my way to spending the next six months solid reading and writing about India (and steampunk) for GreyWorld, the Paris of the East lures me back again.

I’m currently doing some very preliminary work on a new project that promises to bring me back to old Shanghai1.

And yes, it does feel like some kind of obscure Oriental curse.

Obviously, first I’ll have to nail shut the box of my second novel, and my work on GreyWorld will continue, writing both the game setting and some setting-based stories.
And yes, there’s the minor matter of a new Aculeo & Amunet story, and one – or possibly two – new stories in the Asteria series.
Oh, and one, maybe two small-but-sweet gaming-related projects.
And a pitch I really need to have ready by August2.
But while all this stuff is cooking, I’m taking the Shangai books and maps and notes, photo references and everything else out of the storage box.
It will be fun.
Who needs sleeping anyway?


  1. and no, dear reader, it is not a new Sabatini story. 
  2. yes, I’m keeping busy.
