Demon’s Touch, a short story based in Balaia, the home of The Raven, is going to appear in an anthology to be published by Daw books, hopefully in 2006.
The Anthology called ‘Army of the Fantastic’ is the brainchild of John Helfers and John Marco and is coming out in association with Tekno Books.
‘I was flattered to be invited to submit a story and delighted to have it accepted,’ said James. ‘I’m grateful to the two Johns for thinking of me. It was great to step back into the world of The Raven (well, post-Raven) and write another story and it’s given me a nudge to pen more shorts based in the same world. Plenty remains to be said, plenty of questions are unanswered and while another novel seems unlikely, short stories are always an attractive prospect.’
