New Story for Other Earths

Just finished a weird little story called “Act of Oblivion,” for a forthcoming alternate history anthology edited by Nick Gevers and Jay Lake. It’s called Other Earths, and it’ll appear on this Earth sometime next year. The historical turning point in “Act of Oblivion” is the execution of John Milton in 1660 for his support of Cromwell and justification of regicide (this nearly happened in real history, and apparently only the strenuous intervention of Andrew Marvell prevented it). The story also involves William Blake. A feast for literary nerds!

Also, I got the go-ahead to start scripting a new project for Marvel. Oh boy…!
