I’m very pleased to announce that Lou Anders at Pyr has chosen to buy two more books. Â This will Â be another duology, and will tell an entirely different story than Ruby’s, although it is in the same universe. Â I’m picking up about fifty years after the end of The Diamond Deep, and telling a story about the fight to save a planet and a whole vast ecosystem of orbiting space stations. Â It lets me play with human and trans-humans, and to explore a universe I got to build up in the last book but didn’t really have the time to showcase much there. Â I’m almost exactly halfway through the first draft of Edge of Dark – which is book one. Â I think it’s something readers will like. Â I’m pitching this one slightly more adult with no young-adult main characters.
