Castalia author Peter Grant, of Brings the Lightning fame, is polling people about his next open project slot:
The book for the second quarter of 2017 is where I’m looking for your input. I have the following possibilities, all of which are partially written or plotted out already.
- A heroic fantasy novel. Sword and sorcery in the classic tradition, with good triumphing over evil (of course!). The first draft of this novel is about 45% complete.
- Another fantasy novel, less in the ‘heroic’ tradition, but including sword and sorcery in a more formal military setting. Think late Middle Ages or early Renaissance in a European-style country. First draft is about 30% complete.
- A space detective novel, set in the Maxwell universe and tying in with the Maxwell Saga from time to time (i.e. characters from both series will get together). First draft is about 30% complete.
- A mil-sci-fi novel set in the Maxwell universe, but with completely new characters. The idea would be to establish a backstory from which the character might meet and/or work with Steve Maxwell in future books. Plotted out, but not yet begun.
