I’ll be focusing on completing a number of overdue non-fiction projects, such as a Carver crit book and Carver sociological biography, the Vollmann annotated biblio, snd the updated paperback version of my auto/ethnography, Zona Norte. Hopefully as well, my monographs on Barry malzberg and Robert Silverberg’s softcore titles from the 1960s.
Along with these, the only fiction title I have scheduled so far is a Wildside Double of a short novel with time travel elements, Poison from a Dead Sun, and a collection of time travel SF stories, The Chronotope.
But there will be more…
I have two collections of stories I am shopping around, Cardiff by the Sea and This is My Time.
Two crime noir novels are also on the market: Hard Cold Whisper and A Bra Full of Bullets.
I plan to finish my big novel\, Lunch on the Grass, and two YA novels for the agent to sell…
I might complete a book-length essay, The Moon Under Her Feet, about Americans in Tijuana.
Of course, there is the hope that my current collection of stories, Pictures of Houses with Water Damage, will garner decent reviews and get some attention…
I would like to find a home at a decent NY trade house this year.
And of course there is Tinsel Town: screenplays, TV pilots, and meetings…
I will return to this blog post this time next year and see what I did or did not finish, and what books I published.
Novels to finish:
Lunch on the Grass
A Bra Full of Bullets
Women in Carver’s Stories
Carver: An Interpretative Biography
