Rod is one of those writers who spent 20 years earning his spurs as a writer and then blew onto the scene a couple of years ago with the highly-thought-of Six Gun Tarot, which led to Shotgun Arcana and the current Nightwise. He is a man of enormous talent, great patience and discipline who plugged away, often with freelance jobs for publications I edited, learning his craft from bottom to top.
I am truly happy for Rod. He is a guy who deserves everything he has earned and I can't wait for the movie(s).
Here's what Rod said, "The good folks at Tor have decided to purchase three new books from me. A new "Golgotha" book—a sequel to the Shotgun Arcana and the Six-Gun Tarot, a sequel to Nightwise, and a sequel to the upcoming Brotherhood of the Wheel. I'm excited to get to work on these projects.
"I wanted to thank Tor Books, my editor, Greg Cox, and [agent] Lucienne Diver for making this all happen. I also want to thank everyone who has read and supported the books—you are all the best and have been so kind. Thank you, most of all."
