stuff what's coming out in 2017

Here's what should be released of mine in 2017 that a) I'm aware of and b) I'm allowed to talk about in public:

A Furnace Sealed, Book 1 of the Adventures of Bram Gold. This is the first in a new series of urban fantasy novels to be published by WordFire Press about a nice Jewish boy from the Bronx who hunts monsters.
Mermaid Precinct. The next (and likely last) novel in the series of high-fantasy police procedurals should at last come out from Dark Quest Books in '17.
Marvel's Warriors Three: Godhood's End, Book 3 of the Tales of Asgard trilogy. This final novel in the series will be released by Joe Books in the spring, and features Fandral, Hogun, and Volstagg questing to recover the Golden Apples from Immortality after they've been stolen by the Frost Giants.

Super City Cops: Undercover Blues and Super City Cops: Secret Identities. Two more novellas about police in a city filled with superheroes will be released by Bastei in January and February, the former showcasing an undercover cop trying to infiltrate Apollo's gang, the latter putting Lieutenant Zimmerman in an awkward spot when she finds out a nasty truth about Spectacular Man.

Short fiction
"Baker's Dozen: Danthres & Torin's Second Case." This Kickstarter-supported story will finally be done in 2017, and everyone who supported it will get lots of rewards, because I suck and am taking forever to do it.
"Identity" in Baker Street Irregulars. My contribution to this anthology of alternate takes on Sherlock Holmes is the first of what I hope will be a bunch of stories featuring Shirley Holmes and Jack Watson in modern-day New York City. It'll be out from Diversion in March.
"Deep Background" in Aliens: Bug Hunt. Reporter Nickole Kejela gets embedded with a Space Marine unit, and gets a lot more than she bargained for when a rescue mission goes sideways, in this new anthology of stories based on the film series to be released in April from Titan.
"Live and On the Scene" in Nights of the Living Dead. This anthology is edited by George Romero and Jonathan Maberry, and has stories that take place simultaneously with the seminal 1968 zombie film. My story is about a TV reporter who gets caught up in the nightmare both professionally and personally. It will be released in July from St. Martin's.
"Ganbatte" in Joe Ledger: Unstoppable. Jonathan Maberry has opened his "Joe Ledger" universe to other authors in this anthology to be released by St. Martin's in the summer. My story focuses on Lydia "Warbride" Ruiz, and provides her background -- and a nasty reunion with a childhood friend.
"Behind the Wheel: A Tale of Cassie Zukav, Weirdness Magnet" in TV Gods: Summer Programming. The next Cassie story will be in Fortress Publishing's second TV Gods anthology, due out in the fall, and focusing on Tyr and Thor and a TV interview.

Comic books
Icarus Volume 2. The rest of my adaptation of Gregory A. Wilson's Icarus should come out in '17 from Silence in the Library, with superb art by Mark Dos Santos.

The rewatches of Star Trek The Original Series and Batman '66 will continue on, and I'll likely be writing other things for the site as well.

I have three projects for another publisher that I can't talk about. Yet. The first book will be out in the summer, another will be out probably in the fall, the third in 2018. Can't wait to be able to say more....

And there will be other stuff. At least, I hope there will be........................................
