Tales of the Once and Future King

I’m in an anthology! Go buy it!

…OK, you want more information. Fine.

Tales of the Once and Future King is a hybrid between a novel and an anthology. This anthnovology consists of the main frame story, about the new King Arthur in a post-apocalyptic future, interspersed with other authorian stories. One is written by yours truly, Matthew P. Schmidt.

What’s my story called? Tristan and Isolde: A Chivalric Tragedy with Giant Steampunk Battle Robots (also vampires). The name should be self-explanatory.

Two new stories/August Progress Update!

Plenty of news in this post!

First, PRICE DROP!!1! All of my short stories are now $0.99, and The API of the Gods is now $1.99. Enjoy!

Second, I have a new story up, set in the world of C&D:

Check it out here!

Now, you might notice that I said the above story would be free, and it’s not. What gives? Simply put: Amazon’s somewhat bizarre policy of forbidding people from putting up books for free directly. As it is, I stand by its quality enough to sell it.

But if you’re still looking for a free, Sci Phi Journal has my A Fractal of Eight Tragedies in Fifteen Parts available for anyone to see. Check it out!

Meanwhile, C&D itself is still on the long road to publication. More news soon.

Another Progress Update.

I found a more traditional venue that might accept C&D. I hope to submit before the end of March, or at least before the end of April. Either case, there’s unfortunately more of a delay, but it shouldn’t be long. It’s happening!

Progress Update.

Aside from steeming away at steemit, I’ve been still working on revising C&D. As well as working through emotional crises. That tends to slow things down.

Black humor aside, it looks to be released in March now, or, at worst, April. There’s more to revise than I initially thought, in addition to the various formatting, proofs, etc. along the way. Don’t worry, though, I’m far from unhopeful I’ll get it out.

Not-January Update

This update was meant to be posted yesterday, but by the time I thought to write/post it, it was too late. 😦

It’s looking like March for release. I’m still working through revisions, for which I’ve set a deadline of “the end of February.” The actual release may take some time after that–I’m considering launching the ebook first, but we’ll see.
