I spoke with my publisher this morning. I thought I'd pass on a little bit of an update on Oh, Enemy Mine, the anthology AISLING is planning to publish.
Due to unforseen circumstances, the book is now slated for a release date of April 2008. This is a hard release date, so expect to see this collection of revenge tales then.
My three stories are:
* "No Worse Curse," which explores the question: What do you get when you cross an English Manor in Ireland, an American scholar, an IRA soldier and a mummy?
* "Jack's Town." Officer Carl Riggins goes up against Jack Talbott, the richest man in La Sombra. This story takes place a year or so after the events in "In the Shadow of El Paso" (MAP OF MURDER) and includes many of the same characters.
* "Prank Call." Antonio Scazetti plots revenge against the man who got him sent to jail years ago. Scazetti spent all his years in prison working out how he was going to repay his "friend" once he got out. Is revenge really a dish best served cold?
With an April release, OH, ENEMY MINE will join MEDIUM OF MURDER and HARDCORE HARDBOILED (from THUGLIT) as anthologies that I am a part of in the first half of next year.
