John Fulghum, PI, Mysteries, Volume VI, has just been contracted for publication in early 2018 by Zimbell House Publishing, LLC.
Included in this collection of new stories is the novella, “Case of the VP Murder,” which features state-of-the-black-arts forensics combining robotics, learner AI technology and DNA pattern recognition, to interdict a diabolical plot to take down the top figures in the US government.
Zimbell House has published or will soon publish the prior five volumes of Farnsworth’s John Fulghum mysteries, including the novels, Blue Is for Murder (Vol. III in 2017), The Perfect Teacher (Vol. IV in 2017) and Finding Harry Diamond (Vol. V in 2018).
E. W. Farnsworth’s western stories, “Fighting Through Apache Pass” and “Pass to Lemmon Mountain,” have been accepted for publication in The Mountain Pass Anthology of Zimbell House Publishing LLC.
E. W. Farnsworth is author of numerous other Arizona-centric western stories, including those appearing in the collections Desert Sun, Red Blood, Volume I (2015) and Desert Sun, Red Blood, Volume II (2017) from Pro Se Productions.
Farnsworth’s earliest western novel, written when he was eight years old, was about an Arizona mining engineer and explosives expert.
E. W. Farnsworth’s two newest Viking stories, “Hrethel and the Subterranean Smithy” and “Hrethel and His Wicings,” will be published in Hammer of the Gods: Viking Tales of Sword and Sorcery, Volume II, from Rogue Planet Press of Horrified Press in England.
Farnsworth’s six Hrethel stories already published in the first volume of Hammer of the Gods plus the stories contracted to appear in Volume II comprise the growing content of The Hrethelssaga.
Filled with new views on Vikings, according to the author, “these stories are based on recent archaeological finds and the growing revision of the received tradition about the way Vikings actually lived and worked.”
Asked for a reference work that has been particularly helpful in defining the cosmology of his Viking world, Farnsworth said, “See David Hill’s excellent book Anglo-Saxon England (1981). This book contains numerous maps showing the locations of Viking settlements, wics or wicings, in England in the period AD 900 to 1000.”
Farnsworth reminds fans to see the tastefully horrific T-shirt commemorating the publication of Volume I, available for purchase in all sizes from Rogue Planet Press of Horrified Press.
