New John Marco website

US author John Marco has got a tasty new website up and running, which you can check out here.

Interestingly, John reveals a little more about his Skylords trilogy:

"Not only is it a story of coming of age for the two main protagonists, Moth and his friend Fiona, but it’s also about mankind’s coming of age. The world of Starfinder is very much like our own at the turn of the last century, with steam trains and electricity and budding technologies. And thanks to the inventive genius of Fiona’s grandfather Rendor, humans have finally taken to the sky, not only in giant airships but in small, ornithopter contraptions called dragonflies as well."

Sounds very cool indeed.

On his blog, John also revealed that for his next project, he may well revisit his character Lukien, main protagonist of The Sword of Angels, The Devil's Armour and The Eyes of God. Having only read John's excellent Tyrants and Kings series, I was secretly hoping he might be revisiting the world of Nar and Lucel-Lor again, but that doesn't seem to be on the cards right now.

Still, you never know what the future may hold...

Any word on The Black Mirror?

As far as I'm aware, John will be/has been discussing the mauscript with his editor, as it apparently needs some tweaking. In terms of publication, no news as of yet.

I do really hope this project sees the light of day though, as it sounds quite exciting.
