I am delighted to share the news reported in this week’s Publishers Weekly that I am going to be working on two new books with Harper Voyager—speculative legal thrillers about a criminal defense lawyer working in the mirror America of Tropic of Kansas, pitched as “Better Call Saul” meets Nineteen Eighty-Four. The first book is slated for summer 2019 and the second for summer 2020. This is an exciting opportunity to try to weave together some of my disparate interests and explore some new territory. As currently conceived, the first book will deal with a dystopia in the making, while the second will explore more utopian territory. We will see if that’s where the characters, and the ideas, want to go as they come into being on the page.
