Thomas Pichon Novels
Believe it or not, I have had a few people ask me when the fourth (and final) Thomas Pichon Novel will be out. I think my answer has always been I’m not sure — it’s at an early stage. A more accurate answer might have been it was stranded on an island somewhere in my subconscious. Well, now I shall give a different answer. I can’t yet give a date, nor a publisher, but I can say that particular project — Thomas 4 — is next up on my to-do list.
I needed a break after writing the first three in four years — and so I turned to other writing instead. Then came the news that the series’ publisher (Cape Breton University Press) was winding down, coinciding with publisher Mike Hunter’s retirement. That combination meant I put figuring out the final chapter in Thomas’ story on hold — a rather long hold of a couple of years.
But now, as 2017 nears and the two major exhibits I have been working on in recent months wind down, I suddenly find T4 pushing its way into my consciousness. Welcome back.
Who might be interested in publishing it with CBU Press gone, I have no idea. Nor at this point does it matter. What does is that the story be told. I’m looking forward to figuring that out — and eventually to adding a fourth cover image below.
