Details of a new S Squad book, an interesting kickstarter, and general news in this newsletter.
I’ve sold Operation: Norway, #7 in the S-Squad series, to Severed Press. It follows the survivors of the Scottish Special Forces squad from OPERATION: SYRIA and it will be coming soon in ebook and paperback.

It’s supposed to be a simple sanitation job, a post war scientific base that needs cleansed of anything that might prove incriminating to British and Norwegian governments.
But when the S-Squad try to complete their mission they are pursued in the mountains and fjords by something out of legend.
They have woken a sleeping beast.
Now it’s angry, ready for a fight. And it’s bringing its friends along.
Golden Goblin Press are running a kickstarter for Call of Cthulhu scenarios, and one of the stretch goals is an anthology of fiction that will contain a COC related story of mine.

This is a collection of Classic 1920’s era scenarios of 7th edition the Call of Cthulhu Roleplaying Game (published by Chaosium, Inc) with several goals in mind. We hope to present well researched, historically accurate and challenging adventures, with a slightly darker, harsher and more brutal tone than our fans might be used to. For Golden Goblin Press, this will be a more mature book, one focused on adult themes, designed to spark deep conversations among your players for years to come.
These scenarios will of course feature the malignant taint of the Cthulhu Mythos, but at the forefront of each will be one or more examples of social injustice, societal corruption, and mankind’s inhumanity to man. The 1920’s was a period of great social upheaval in America, when the borders between classes, races, and genders were changed. In this time of social upheaval and chaos, eldritch forces found fertile ground to exploit us. Mankind is never so vulnerable than when we are divided from within.
In general news, I’m between writing gigs at the moment, but have provisionally started a new Midnight Eye story. Writing in Derek’s voice is always like putting on a favorite jacket and I’ve slipped quickly into the rhythm of it, so it looks like it could be a nice smooth process.
An older Scottish supernatural novella, THE AULD MITHER, is out now from Unnerving Press. Details and sample pages links are available on its new page on my website here
