As Eric points out, no one expects the Inquisition. And no one expects open heart surgery, either.
Unfortunately for the fans, Eric’s surgery has thrown his writing schedule completely out of whack. He’s currently working on the novel Much Fall of Blood, due out in May 2010. That one will be followed by Threshold and is due out in June 2010. And those will be followed by 1635: The Eastern Front, which is due out in October 2010.
As soon as he gets caught up, he’ll start on The Anaconda Project again, and we’ll resume the serial.
Let’s all hope for soon.
