Rumors of our demise. . .

Yeah, the worst is over. Roscoe is sitting up and taking nourishment—and sending out thankful vibes to all who cared. Also, thanks for the several who did help out by answering the survey. It’s literally given us encouragement to carry on.

And now, the news

We were particularly cheered at last to receive a reply from Robert Ferrigno, author of Prayers for the Assassin. (See several most recent posts.) Apparently we had a bum e-mail address for him, but he discovered our posts and made contact anyway.

Most interesting was the news that Prayers is coming out in paperback next month by Pocket Books. Check it out. As we said, there’s nothing better in fiction this year.

Even better news: The rumor that a sequel is in the works is true—a trilogy, even—which explains his absence from blogging. Says Robert:

“I've interrupted blogging for a bit, working very hard on the next book, the second installment of the Prayers trilogy, in which Rakkim, the disaffected Muslim hero from Book 1 journeys into the Bible Belt. Fun ensues. (I wrote Prayers as a stand-alone book, but always hoped it would be successful enough for Scribner to buy the rest. It was. They did.)

And we’re glad. Can’t wait for the next installment. And thanks for the kindly update, Robert.
