My new book, 1985: STORI3S FROM SØS, is out today! This slim edition collects three stories related to The Silence of Six series: “SOS”, which features Evan (R.I.P.); “DoubleThink”, which tells Penny’s story between The Silence of Six and Against All Silence; and 1985, a brand-new novella featuring Max’s parents as teenagers at Columbia University in New York City. You can buy it now only at Barnes & Noble. I’m immensely grateful that my publisher Adaptive allowed me to write these stories, and I’m very proud of them, so I hope you’ll check out the collection. If you enjoy them, or even if you didn’t, reviews are always appreciated.
To celebrate my book launch in true 1985 style, you’re invited to watch me play Gyromite for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), just like Brad and his friend Nick in 1985. Check out my YouTube Channel tomorrow night at 9 p.m. Eastern, where I’ll be playing the game (on an original console and tube TV!) and answering viewers’ questions live. Please consider subscribing for a reminder and if you like watching that sort of thing, because I play NES games just about every week.
