The Metanatural Adventures of Dr. Black

June 17, 2014

My Dr. Black book will be out soon from PS Publishing. They haven’t posted a page for it yet, for ordering, but I am sure they soon will. A good bit of the material in it was previously published elsewhere, but the book itself doesn’t indicate where or when. I have therefore decided to post this here on my blog. Mind you, the book also doesn’t have an author bio.
