Martin Millar blogs that he is under contract to deliver a sequel to his novel Lonely Werewolf Girl, provisionally entitled Queen Vex. I just read Lonely Werewolf Girl last week and I thoroughly adored it, saying that it should be made into a television miniseries immediately. I even spent some time after I finished it writing, with an eye toward emulation, about interesting things Millar does with tying character motivation to dialog. My only complaint about it was that it didn’t end as neatly as the the other Martin Millar novel I’ve read, the also excellent Good Fairies of New York. So I welcome news that the story is going to continue.
The other exciting news, which I comes via Nalo Hopkinson, is that Beacon Press, the publisher of Octavia Butler’s novel Kindred is in the process of recruiting an illustrator to produce a graphic novel adaptation for the 30th anniversary of the book’s publication. Graphic novels and Octavia Butler novels are two of my favorite things in the world; I can’t wait to see how these tastes go together.
