Okay, so yesterday I got a new book greenlit at Markosia. Here's the outline:
When a series of inexplicable, yet somehow connected, murders are committed by people with no conceivable connection to their victims, a retired Russian spymaster appears with an incredible story. The one successful product of Russian remote viewing experimentation has finally resurfaced, and has embarked on a murderous crusade against anyone connected with the programme, his delusions painting him as an otherworldly adventurer in pursuit of a dastardly villain.
Phantom Lung and the Garden of Dead Liars is a dual-reality fantasy in five parts. A delusional, obsessive conspiracy theorist uses Cold War-era remote viewing techniques to move his consciousness from body to body at will, his victims determined by distorted half-memories and an overwhelming paranoia. Wherever Phantom Lung travels, he leaves borrowed, stolen and murdered bodies in his wake.
Phantom Lung is coming...
Don't hold your breath.

I've been hoping to work on a book with Unbelievable's Si Wyatt for ages. Si's got a powerful style with a real sense of wild magic to it, so this is looking to be one weird ride. Here are a few of his concept sketches.
I'll be updating here and over on my main site as things progress, so watch this space for more details.
