Sold a 4th Weird West/Doc Holliday novel

I just signed to write a 4th book in my Weird Western series for Pyr, following last year’s The Buntline Special, next week’s The Doctor and the Kid (which just got a starred review from Booklist, and next year’s he Doctor and the Roough Rider. This fourth book will be titled The Doctor and the Dinosaurs and will take place during the Cope-Marsh “Bone Wars”. The remarkable Seamus Gallagher will do the cover and interior illos, as usual.

    I just bought Buntline Special last night and am loving it, so it’s great to hear that this series will continue. I already picked up The Doctor and the Kid and can’t wait to start it!

    I just finished Buntline and jumped straight into the Kid. I’m not suprised that you continued with Doc as the main character as he stole the show in the Buntline Special. Or maybe you meant to do that the whole time..?
    I wasn’t sure how you would handle steampunk, but you rewrote the American west right into it.
    I look forward to reading Rough Rider.
    Long live the Steampunk Doc Holliday!

      Thanks. And yes, Doc was always the main character. I find his short and turbulent life fascinating — and this is not the first time I’ve used him. Someday take a look at the fourth and final book in the Galactic Midway series, The Best Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gunslinger in the Whole Damned Galaxy. (Lesson learned from that book: if you want your name visible from more than ten feet away on a paperback, don’t use an eleven-word title. :-)

    I have just finished reading the doctor and the rough rider and I have to say that each book has left me more impressed then the last. The stories immediately captivated me from start to finish and I finished each book in a matter of hours. The way you managed to build the world Doc Holliday lives in is just something that has left me in awe over and over again. When can we expect the 4th book to hit the shelves? I will be anxiously waiting to read the next misadventure of Doc Holliday!
