I’ve polished Barbarians of the Beyond to a semi-gloss, but now I have to prepare to relocated from British Columbia to a new housesit in France, followed by another in Bucharest. In the meantime, I’ve sent the second draft to John Vance, to make sure we’re both on the same page as to the story I’ve set in Vance space. If so, I’ll finish it up in March and turn it in.

On Friday, I finished the draft of Barbarians of the Beyond (working title for the authorized sequel
to The Demon Princes), at 54.5K words. Now I’m going through the printed-out
manuscript, adding and changing to make the story more cohesive. Also, in the earlier chapters, the characters
are mere sketches, so I need to add to and refine their doings and sayings to make
them consistent with how they turn out.
Just about the same time as I talked with Josh, I started writing the sequel to Jack Vance’s The Demon Princes. Yesterday, I reached 51,700 words. I expect to have the first draft finished by early next week. Current working title is Barbarians of the Beyond.
