NOCTURNAL Episode #22

John Doe is Birdman’s killer, and Rex Deprovdechuck — who murdered his own mother — is related to John Doe. Another BoyCo member is dead, as is the mother of that gang’s last survivor. All the pieces are coming together, but San Francisco Chief of Police Amy Zou has shut the case down, hard. Robin’s apartment becomes ground zero for Robin, Bryan, Pookie and Black Mr. Burns as they plot their next steps.

New print deal: Three books with Del Rey

Scott Sigler signed a three-book deal with Ballantine Doubleday Dell to publish ALIVE

I’ve been hinting at an announcement for a few weeks now, and this is it: new print deal. I put out five books with Crown Publishing and loved both the process and the people. Tha Shiv was an excellent editor for my work. But, time marches on and it’s time to try something new. The books discussed below are YA, and Crown doesn’t do YA, so my agent went out and wrangled a new deal.

Executive Editor Mark Tavani at Ballantine Bantam Dell bought World Rights to a science fiction trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Scott Sigler. In the first book, ALIVE, a young woman awakes trapped in a confined space with no idea who she is or how she got there. She soon frees other young adults in the room and together they find that they are surrounded by the horrifying remains of a war long past…and matched against an enemy too horrible to imagine. Further adventures will follow in two more books, ALIGHT and AWAY. The books will be published under the Del Rey imprint. The deal was made by Byrd Leavell at Waxman Leavell. For rights information, please contact Denise Cronin at dcronin@randomhouse.com.

In the aftermath of the confrontation at Rex’s house, Marco escapes the apartment with Rex in tow. With every cop in the city now looking for a killer, Marco spirits Rex away to a hidey hole until the wee hours of the morning when it’s safe to go Home.

Back at Rex’s apartment, now crawling with San Francisco’s finest, Bryan and Pookie try and tie all the emerging pieces together. Is Rex the key to finding the BoyCo killer? Or is Rex, who is now missing, in danger? And for Bryan, will finding Rex help solve the mystery of his strange new dreams?

Rex finds himself more and more inspired by his new found talent for drawing, and the unexpected side effects his art seems to be having on the BoyCo boys survival rates.

Across town, Aggie James wakes up, more and more sober with each day, which isn’t making his situation any easier. Then, in a surprise turn, Hilary gives him a glimmer of hope.

And downtown, Bryan seems much recovered from his recent illness as he and Pookie meet up with Black Mr. Burns at the Pine Crest Diner to discuss his recent findings about the Golden Gate Slasher.

FridayFix: The “Captain Spaulding”

The FDØ invents a fancy drinky-drink

Author Mur Lafferty has a new book out in March, called THE GHOST TRAIN TO NEW ORLEANS. It’s a sequel to her Campbell Award-winning novel THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY, a paranormal tale about a plucky heroine who winds up writing travel guides for the undead.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/01_How_to_make_the_perfect__Captain_Spaulding_.mp3.mp3

Mur was recently on Twitter talking about a fictional drink in the book called a “Captain Spaulding.” This drink contains gin and demon blood. Blargh. She wondered how that might translate to the real world (assuming you don’t have a demon in your basement, like I do, cause I’m pimp like that, and, yes, mine wears a gimp suit). She even started a contest where you could come up with your own drink recipe for the Spaulding.

While I recuse myself from this contest, I could not let this opportunity pass me by. Hence, this FridayFix focuses on my interpretation of the Captain Spaulding. Enjoy!

This is how the other half lives, bitches.

NOCTURNAL Episode #15

Bryan and Pookie were kicked off the case by Chief Zou, but not before Pookie had Black Mister Burns investigate the occult symbols found at the murder scenes. Burns came up with a hit: a man who reported the same symbols decades earlier, during the Golden Gate Slasher case. That man? Mister Biz-Nass. Bryan and Pookie pay him a visit.
