A Long Year’s Dreaming: March Progress Report

Between my German vampire series WWAC and my impending coverage of the Splatterpunk Awards, I’ve had to slow down a little on my book A Long Year’s Dreaming: Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror in 2020. It’s still continuing to take shape, though. I now have a fairly clear idea of how many essays are left to write, and I should be able to reveal the cover art soon as well.
