It has been more than a year since I checked in here, and even then it was only to post a goofy logo. I've got some actual news now.
The Zeros & The Empirical Evidence of Stars has been reappraised by our series editor (Miss Kathleen), and a number of drastic changes have been made to the manuscript, to say nothing of the outline. Entire segments have been cut or moved, with many of the better set pieces cut and saved for later volumes, greatly tightening an outline that had grown to rival Tolstoy–-in length only. So instead of being less than halfway through at 60k words, I'm more like 2/3 of the way through at 55k.
Infinite apologies for the delay. I have no excuse other than the fact that the story grew too large and unwieldy, and it simply got away from me. Time travel, Albert Einstein, parallel universes, reincarnated despots, assassins, international nuclear politics, and trans-dimensional travel grew too much for one volume. For everyone out there waiting patiently for the next volume, all I can do is apologize and beg for further patience. It is coming. I'm hoping the volume you receive now will be a much cleaner, tighter, and faster read than its previous incarnation ever would have been.
Thank you again for your patience and support.
