NEWS | Mike Mignola & Christopher Golden sell new series


Both Golden and Publisher's Marketplace have confirmed that Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden have sold a pair of novels in a new Steampunk series to St. Martin with the first Joe Golem and the Drowning City to be released early next year.  Much of Mignola's work does already have Steampunk overtones, especially some B.P.R.D. stuff and given this is a pushed forward setting  far past Victorian times this could certainly be a very original take on the genre. Here is the official word:
Mike Mignola & Christopher Golden's JOE GOLEM AND THE DROWNING CITY, a supernatural-steampunk illustrated novel following an orphaned teenage girl, an aging conjuror, a lunatic scientist, a Victorian occult detective, and the stalwart sidekick, Joe Golem, as they struggle for the fate of an alternate 1970s Lower Manhattan, which sank into the water during a catastrophe in 1925, leaving those unwilling or unable to abandon it to make a new life in streets turned to canals, to St. Martin's, in a two-book deal, for publication in early 2012 (World).
This marks Mignola and Golden's second novel collaboration after the illustrated novel Baltimore: Or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire from a couple years back.  They have also collaborated on a number of other project including some work related to  B.P.R.D. and the Hellboy short story anthologies which Golden edited.

I am looking forward to the Joe Golem book and its followup. Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola, each of whom create fantastic fantasy worlds, make a wonderful team, as shown with Baltimore. I can't wait to see what they have planned for their steampunk endeavor!

That's great news! And by the way, you've got Mignola's B.P.R.D. listed dyslexically, should read B.P.R.D. not B.R.P.D.. Thx!
