Having seen and enjoyed the Infected section in Run Faster along with Patrick's comments on new writer Kevin Czarnecki's work in the section, we did a quick search to see what else they might be doing and am pleased to see 'Red' will be coming back in his own novel Crimson with a projected date of Feb 2015.

Quote from: Overview
Thanksgiving. 2070. Shadowrunning vampire Rick "Red" Lang used to live in a world hunting infectious insectoid spirits and twisted mages, but now he's awakened after eight years to find the world has gotten impossibly stranger. After being retrieved by agents of his long-time ally Needles, Rick embarks on a quest to piece together the events of his lost time, and find his place among the conflict that rages among ghouls and the eldritch forces that have begun to encroach from beyond our reality. He journeys through the neon-drenched ruins of a leveled Chicago and its augmented facades as he teams up with Pretty, a beautiful ghoul, and Slim, hacker extraordinaire, as they weave their way through the schemes and power plays of a dangerous new conflict that threatens to shatter the delicate balance between peace and an all-consuming chaos.

Looking forward to it.  8)

Edit: oops, just realized I should have stuck this in the upcoming product thread.

Mea Culpa.

There was talk of another print anthology in a semi-recent Critical Glitch podcast interview with Jason and John Helfers, the novel line guy, but I'm not sure what the status on that is. I'd like one, too, though.

Also noticed these on BN:

Shaken: No Job Too Small
Quote
Jimmy Kincaid is an elven p.i., damaged mage, and friend to the downtrodden. He roams the streets of 2074 Seattle, dispensing justice the only way he knows how—fast and direct. But when a mage contacts him to let him know hie magical mentor has died—and left him a datachip—Kincaid thinks his old professor was simply taking care of some minor unfinished business. But the professor hires Kincaid to find out who killed his mentor, an old enemy from Kincaid's past pops up as the prime suspect—the same vampire that stripped him of his magic. Now Jimmy's got two reasons to tie up this loose end—permanently. But the bloodsucker's involvement goes deeper than Kincaid first realizes, and soon he's running for his life while trying to figure out exactly what his old mentor was up to—and why so many will kill to get their claws on it.

Deniable Assets
Quote
When a magical grad student on the trail of a ancient, powerful relic uncovers lost writings that reveal a link between the Sixth World and the long-lost, magical Second World, she sets off a chain reaction of megacorporaate machinations and cold-blooded killers who will do anything to get their hands on her. the only question is, will they sell her to the highest bidder, or throw in on her quest to find a true artifact that could change the Sixth World forever?

These are also scheduled to be released in Fab 2015...date might simply be a placeholder for the pre-order.

Woot, new works by Critias, Mel Odem AND the new guy Mr. Czarnecki?   Sounds more like Xmas than Valentines day. ;)

So yeah, guess Feb is just the default space holder date for the next lot of books, but one of them might be out. 

A bit of Book Roulette. ;)

P.S. The Deniable link still go to the No Job Too Small page, though it does have a link to Deniable Assets further down.

Mel Odom wrote some pretty bitchin' stuff back in the day, especially Preying For Keeps.

As would I.

Heyas! Patrick said I should "out" myself here, so, yeah, I'm Kevin Czarnecki. :)

Damn glad you enjoyed the piece! I'm pretty excited for Crimson's release. Adding to the canon is a big bucket list item.

No way it could have happened without Patrick. The guy is a perfect creative partner.

I just read the excerpt for Crimson, and I'm definitely going to get my grubby little paws on it as soon as possible.  I love how you've written it up. 
Would you want to go into a place where the resident had a drum-fed shotgun and can see in the dark?

Seconded.

Just got Dark Resonance yesterday at B&N and while am still reading through the novel, I just noticed the dark trimmed pages toward the back and flipped to them out of curiosity only to have discovered the excerpt for Crimson there.

Very nice bit and definitely left us hungry for more.

Always appreciate the authors/freelancers showing up to chance about their work...much appreciated. ;) Really, REALLY looking forward to getting more SR fiction out there...hopefully our enthusiasm translates into solid sales ;D

Wanna see a better image of the cover for Crimson than is found on the Upcoming Releases page?

You're welcome.
