James Alan Gardner, Writer

Welcome to my rough-and-ready web page. Sometime soon, I'm going to do a complete overhaul, but in the meantime, this will hit the highlights.

Forthcoming Books

So I have this new series to be published by Tor. There are vampires. There are werewolves. There are demons. There are superheroes.

I currently have contracts for two books, and I hope this will turn into at least a four book series. But here we go:

Book 1: ALL THOSE EXPLOSIONS WERE SOMEONE ELSE'S FAULT
Scheduled for November 7, 2017


Available for pre-order on Amazon.
No cover yet Book 2: THEY PROMISED ME THE GUN WASN'T LOADED
Tentatively scheduled for late 2018

(Almost) All of My Previous Books are Available Digitally

Audiobooks Now Available

My novels are now available as audiobooks from audible.com!

Yes, I'm on Twitter

Traumatic to decide on a Twitter ID when "jagardner" is already taken...but I'm now jamesagard, and we'll all see how regularly I can tweet. Follow, follow, follow...

The Skill List Project

Although I'm generally disinclined to blog, I'm sticking my toe in the water over on the SF Novelists site. Specifically, I've started the Skill List Project: an attempt at listing all of the skills that are actually involved in being a professional SF writer, plus advice on improving those skills. Here are the current installments:

Will there be more Festina/League of Peoples books?

I get asked this question a lot. I wish I could answer it.

I no longer have a contract with Harper-Collins, the publisher that has the rights to the existing League books. It isn't likely that another publisher would want to handle new books in the series, given that they don't have the rights to the books that already exist. Never say never, but the odds aren't good for Festina to fly again.
