The Stepping Stone Cycle

An episodic series of cosmic horror novellas by the acclaimed author of The Bridge Chronicles

The first draft of Episode 4 of the Cthulhu mythos series is done!

At around 25,000 words, this novella will end up being the shortest episode so far but it will have significant consequences for the series main character, Dr. Jack Carter, going forward. I have a working title that I will reveal when I get the cover art done. I've sent the story off to my alpha reader (aka my wife) and while she goes over it with a fine tooth comb, I plan on getting a start on another screenplay. The screenplay will in fact be an adaptation of the first episode of the Cycle into a television pilot.

Watch this space for more to come, including a release date (hopefully in March).
