All my interviews, all the latest Artemis Bridge and Bridge Chronicles news and any reviews my books garner will end up in this section.

It's been a while since my last update on the site, and I wanted to let everyone know that while I may not post to the site nearly enough, I am working. The next installement of The Bridge Chronicles is proceeding slowly but surely. Called The Shootist, the fourth novel in the cyberpunk series will give us a unique perspective on the Gangland, as well as advancing the timeline closer to the original series of books that was the inspiration for the Bridge universe. My hope is that I can get it done, printed and digitized by the summer, but we'll see. Keep a check on my Twitter feed for updates. As of this writing, I've finished Chapter 6 of a propsed 20 chapters. Stay tuned for more information.

It's been a bit longer coming than I thought, but I'm happy to announce that the eBook-only short story collection, Tales from the Bridge Chronicles, Volume 1 has been released! The collection is a compilation of the short stories that I've released on this site (found here), as well as short stories that have been published elsewhere. It also includes two short stories never before published in any form. All told it clocks in at around 65,000 words with 10 short stories in all, some novella length. Here is a list of the stories included with links to the ones that have been published on the site before.

I've finally done something I've wanted to do for a while now. I've launched a new author blog, some place to gather all my thoughts down for the entire Internet to read. I have an old Blogspot blog that has mostly lain fallow since I began writing the Bridge Chronicles. I wanted to learn WordPress, so this seemed a good time to gather those thoughts and restart the blog as my author site. You can find the new blog at http://www.garyballardauthor.info. There are a number of posts over there already, so enjoy my random rantings.
