JOE GOLEM AND THE DROWNING CITY

The cat's out of the bag.

Some time back, Mike Mignola and I mentioned we were writing a new novel together. Now that the announcement of the book has been made on Publishers Marketplace, I thought I'd share it with you. Much more to come.

"Mike Mignola & Christopher Golden's JOE GOLEM AND THE DROWNING CITY, a supernatural-steampunk illustrated novel following an orphaned teenage girl, an aging conjuror, a lunatic scientist, a Victorian occult detective, and the stalwart sidekick, Joe Golem, as they struggle for the fate of an alternate 1970s Lower Manhattan, which sank into the water during a catastrophe in 1925, leaving those unwilling or unable to abandon it to make a new life in streets turned to canals, to Michael Homler at St. Martin's, in a good deal, in a two-book deal, for publication in early 2012 (World)."
