Jonathon Worthington, Strangelight Investigator
  • As some of you folks know I wrote a set of stories for free readings called Jonathon Worthington, Strangelight Investigator. I designed it to be a character-driven piece in the Iron Kingdoms setting of Privateer Press that's a mix of Sherlock Holmes meets 1930s serial adventures meets Call of Cthulhu steampunk (in other words, fan-fic in a favorite setting, but hey, sounds better when I say it the other way lol). It started with Case 17: the Mystery of the Giggling Gobber, and lately I've been adding chapters to its followup Case 18: the Mystery of the Purloined Past. The first case file novella (yes it starts on 17) clocked in at over 40k words, a small novel, and Case 18 looks to be at least that long. Rather than flooding the board with the story or continuing to bump the GEARTEETH thread I figured I'd use this thread to let you know when a new chapter's up (usually every Friday) if that's all right with you guys. In that vein, oh hey, look at that, Chapter 5 of Case 18 is now up on ye olde website below =)

  • Sadly last week my grandfather died (as many of you already know), and I was pretty much useless for anything other than GW2 and other distractions.

    But this week I'm back on track with Chapter 7 of Jonathon posted on my site (http://sraelkin.com)! Also, based on feedback from one of the book reviewers (GT is featured in the spotlight at http://fantasybookcritic.blogspot.com/2012/09/spotlight-on-some-recent-sff-titles-of.html), I'm going to pull down the tiny excerpt of GEARTEETH on my site and instead post the whole of Chapter 1. This'll be later today as I've got to get the blasted thing formatted for my site. I'm also going to get my publisher to put up the much meatier version of the excerpt for their site :)

    Anyways, hope you guys enjoy the new Jonny!

  • Oh man, sorry to hear about your Granddad. :(
  • Yeah it sucks mightily. I'm not much of one to reveal my private life for all, but he passed a month and a day after my grandmother. 2/3 of the people that raised me are now gone in the space of about a month, leaving only my mother. While she bore the lion's share of rearing me my grandparents were always there, always a spot where we could retreat to when life got rough (and it did, lots of times and worse than most can imagine). I didn't always agree with them, but Ma and Pa were the only blood outside of my mother and brother that could pull that kind of reaction from me.

    It still hasn't really hit like I know it will; if I ever go back to visit the south it'll be all too real.

  • I'm really sorry to hear about your grandparents Mal. My sincere condolences.
    But I need tacos! I need them or I will explode. That happens to me sometimes.
  • Thanks, bud.

  • In happier news Chapter 8 is now up on the website!

    Also, for anyone going to Steamstock in Richmond, CA this weekend I'll be the tied-back mohawk guy wearing the shirt that's pimping GEARTEETH . Yes, I'm turning myself into a walking billboard. I'm already a living cartoon, so it's a short trip =P

  • Sorry to hear about your Grandparents, Mal...
    I used to care... now I take a pill for that...

  • Is there somewhere we can get GT t-shirts?

  • Ha! Actually a couple of people have asked about GT T-shirts ... I might have to start a side biz on Etsy to sell them or something (Raven just pointed out Cafe Press; that's an idea!). I admit the one overshirt I've done actually turned out much better than I could have hoped. I can't sell them on the website as I have the Jonathon stories up, and as they take place in another person's licensed world I don't want to give them any reason to send me a cease and desist letter for posting them ;) But it's not a bad idea to ask the silk-screen place if I can get some kind of bulk discount lol.

    EDIT: And thank you for your condolences. I'm basically at the 'if I act normal eventually normalcy will return' stage.

  • Surprise! Chapter 13 is up a day early! I'm changing the schedule slightly due to the approaching holiday. What does that mean for you? Well, this week's chapter goes up today, and next week's will be posted on Wednesday. The week after there will be a special double-chapter blowout marking the end of Case 18 on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving; a gift to my readers before the madness of the holiday season

  • As promised last week, Chapter 14 is up even earlier this week :) Next week I'll be posting a special double-chapter ending for Case 18, which will also conclude the series (unless Privateeer steps in lol).

  • This is it, folks: the double-chapter ending of the Jonathon Worthington stories!

    Hope you guys enjoyed the ride; it was fun for me, but now I've got to turn my attention to stories that might help make the rent ;)

  • Wait... You... can't... END IT... You have too much to live for... don't let it goooooo...

    Anywho... totally amazing writing. Tim... how would I go about getting a hard copy signed edition of Gearteeth? Can either email more or send me a tell here...

  • Get PP to pay me for them and I'll write a few dozen more :P

    As for Gearteeth, unfortunately there's no hard copies yet; and right now I'm not sure there will be with RRP. I'm incredibly disappointed in how they've handled the book, and if things don't improve I'm going to have to look at breaking the contract and reselling it. But I don't know the industry, so not sure how big a black eye this will give me, etc. I really need a steampunk/fantasy literary agent, someone who knows what the score is who I can ask questions to :/
