James Blaylock seems to have two new titles in the pipeline.

Well, one of them is not exactly new. It is an anthology called The Adventures of Langdon St Ives, classic steampunk novels chronicling the exploits of the eponymous hero. The volumes collected have mostly been long out of print and the collection is being published by Subterranean Press in November 2008.

The other looks like a new addition to the loosely entitled ‘California Sequence’, where Blaylock spins supernatural yarns into closely observed novels set in modern day urban California. I have loved all of the set so far and the new one seems promising. The Knights of the Cornerstone will be published in December 2008 by Ace.

They’d make great Christmas gifts…
