I’ve come to an agreement with Jack Vance’s son, John, that I will
be writing a sequel to Jack Vance’s iconic Demon Princes series. A
contract is being drawn up.
I’m not an outliner, but I’ve sketched out an idea for the story: a
young person, not sure yet if it’s male or female, returns to the world
called Providence and the community of Mount Pleasant. This was the site
of a slave-taking raid by the five megacriminals known collectively as
the Demon Princes, whom Kirth Gersen devoted his life to tracking down
The returnee has escaped from slavery and come to reclaim the family
property – as well as something precious buried there.
But the ghost town has been repopulated by sinister people – I’m
thinking maybe a cult or some kind of radical political organization. So
my underdog has to undergo trials and tribulations.
I’m very much looking forward to this.
