Two years ago, I wrapped up a long running story arc in the Chess Team books with the novel OMEGA, but as a casualty of that storyline, King was trapped three millennia in the past, and he was made temporarily immortal. He would need to live through the ravages of history until he caught up with the team and his family in the present. I thought it would be fun to look at some of his adventures during that time with standalone novellas, showing different slices of history and King’s way of dealing with those time periods. Of course, because it’s me, he would also have to face mythological or supernatural creatures along the way. Last year I released GUARDIAN with my co-author, J. Kent Holloway. It was the first of the Jack Sigler Continuum series of adventures, and it found King in ancient Babylon, a young immortal and facing a very otherworldly threat.
Today, I’m happy to announce PATRIOT, the second adventure in the Continuum series of novellas, once again co-authored with Kent. This adventure brings you a very different King, after he’s weary from facing the world for centuries, and he’s chosen a very unique way of passing the time.
