  1. Guys:

    Caliphate isn’t a sequel (or prequel) to Carnifex; it’s a standalone (unless we turn it into a series). The sequel to Carnifex won’t be out until 09 sometime. (Working title is The Lotus Eaters, but that’s likely to change.)

  2. Thanks for the info, Tom – Sorry about posting the wrong info initially; I’ve altered the post accordingly.

    All the best,

  3. Thanks for pointing out the typo on the title page! Of all the places for the printer’s elves to muck up…sigh.

  4. Hi Glenda, thanks for the comment.

    At least they got the right number on the spine of the book, which is more important, IMO!

    All the best,
