Hiram Grange and the Interweb of Doom

July 2, 2008 by Richard Wright in Journal, News, Writing

In the background, there are all sorts of cool things being planned to enhance and push the launch of the Hiram Grange Chronicles by Shroud Publishing later this year. Things have started already, with the creation of www.hiramgrange.com, and I suggest you visit it right now. From the publisher:

The “Hiram Five” writing team will be adding Web-only content over the next few weeks as well to help share information about Hiram’s universe. Please stop on by and get to know Hiram Grange, Mrs. Bothwell, Sadie, Juniper Briggs, the elusive Gabrysia, the mysterious “Cascade,” learn about the soft tissue damage of a .455 Webley MK VI, and whether or not you have a CONFLUENCE in your back yard.

To which I’d add:

And you’d better hope you don’t have a confluence in your back yard, because then Hiram would have to come and save you. And you really don’t want that…

Pop along and see for yourself. These snippets are unproofed excerpts from the novella series, a peek behind the scenes before even the first round of drafting is done. My own contribution is a short entry entitled ‘Beast of the Air‘, featuring one of the secondary characters from the series Let me know what you think, and if you’re also a blog writer, facebooker, or myspacerite, drop the page a link would you? We’re very proud of Hiram (not that the sneering git cares), and want to give him a chance to find his audience. Might be you. Might be your friends. Won’t be anybody, if nobody gives it a whirl.

Elsewhere, I’m reliably informed that the hardback Doctor Who anthology Short Trips: Transmissions has arrived back from the printer, so will shortly appear in my doorstep. Soon after that, it could be on yours, if you’re prepared to cross the publisher’s palm with silver. As you may have guessed, I’m immensely excited about it. I don’t really know how to put it into words. Either you grew up watching Doctor Who, and still do, in which case you probably get it already, or you don’t, in which case you probably think I’ve lost the plot…
