No relation to any other book I've written. Sonant stands on its own. New characters. New story.

Although, I have sketched out a third book in the Xenolith series, it's on the back burner. I don't get the impression there's much appetite for a third, although I have fun with it in my daydreams.

My current work in progress is a thriller, no fantasy elements whatsoever, just a warped plot with an unlikely hero ("Vultures in the Playground")

Excellent...

I read a little of Xenolith and so far, it's pretty damn impressive.

But rest assured, I will sniff something out.

I tired really hard to resist this, but I gave in just now. Looks very interesting, thank you.

electric and acoustic, but i don't have room for an upright - hopefully some day... i figured you to be a bass player after reading a ways into your novel.

i'm over a third of the way into the book, and even though nothing has really happened that would lead me to the conclusion, it feels like a horror novel more than fantasy. is it?

It's a fantasy pretending to be a horror novel. (I hope that's not a spoiler).

I tried to go places that a reader of the more typical novels in these genres would not expect.

I haven't read much yet, but I've taken a few bits. It's horrible... what a piece of crappy junk writing... some of these amateur authors...

Now excuse me while I go back to wasting more time with your digital pile of dung.
