Subterranean Press managed to pull a new Langdon St. Ives novella, The Ebb Tide, out of James P. Blaylock, which they published last year. Just a few short weeks ago, he mentioned he was finishing an even longer novella, The Affair of the Chalk Cliffs, which Subterranean is reading now and will be sending on to J. K. Potter to illustrate. You can look for it on our 2011 schedule.
Also appearing in 2011 will be the thirtieth anniversary edition of Joe R. Lansdale’s first novel, Act of Love. It will not only include the underground classic novel, but a long brand new story written with the same unsparing attitude as the novel proper. Joe’s told Subterranean it might even feature the novel’s protagonist, Marvin Hanson.
Mike Resnick recently turned in a 30,000 word novella, “Six Blind Men and an Alien” for Subterranean Online. This means they have two long novellas by Mike in their magazine’s inventory, the other being “Shaka II,” as well as a number of his popular Lucifer Jones tales.
Finally, much of SubPress publisher Bill Schafer’s reading of late has consisted of very vintage (as in first published 50 years ago) pen name novels by Lawrence Block. You can expect a volume containing a pair of the Block’s offerings from the early days of his career next year, the perfect accompaniment to Hellcats and Honeygirls, the omnibus of the three early novels he wrote with Donald E. Westlake.
