I've Got A Novella Published!

Howdy all,

This subforum's so quiet it feels like I'm whistling in church, so I'll try to keep it brief. I've been doing freelance writing for RPGs and wargames for a while now, but I just got my first stand-alone piece of pure fiction published.

It clocks in at about 100 pages, and the setting is a mix of urban fantasy (it's the modern day but magic is real, think "Harry Potter" or "The Dresden Files") crossed with cyberpunk ("Blade Runner" or things like that, similar near-future work).

The story follows a hard-boiled private eye type of character, Jimmy Kincaid, as he tries to untangle a missing persons case. There's magic, machines, mobsters, and all sorts of stuff going on besides. And also whiskey, neat.
"It seems that the least we owe the hero is that we remember him. Without remembrance, without honor, we cannot expect to have such men when we need them. Without an awareness of what has been done, we do not realize what can be done, nor are we inspired to do that which should be done. "
