Dan McGirt at Dragon*Con 2013

Greetings, Loyal Reader!

dragoncon logoJust a quick note that I will be a guest at Dragon*Con 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia, August 30-September 2. I don’t know the details of my schedule yet — I only just got my guest invite today. I hope I’ll have a chance to do a reading and a signing and I’m sure I’ll be on a couple of panels on the Writer’s Track. Details to come!

I last attended Dragon*Con in 2009. I enjoyed meeting several Loyal Readers then and I look forward to meeting more this year. So if you plan to be at Dragon*Con, let me know — and stay tuned for my exact schedule as we get closer to the convention.

Best regards,

Dan McGirt

Jason Cosmo: From Royal Chaos to Royal Crush

Greetings, Loyal Reader!

Happy 2013! I trust you enjoyed the holiday season. Before I go on, thank you for your support in 2012. It was the best year for sales of the Jason Cosmo books so far, and I also appreciate the positive reviews, comments, and other messages I received from many of you last year.

Later this year, I will — at last — publish the next book in the Jason Cosmo series, Royal Crush.

Dirty Work Cover Art Mystery – SOLVED!

Greetings, Loyal Reader!

One of the greatest mysteries of the Cosmoverse was recently solved.  For more than a decade I have been on a quest — well, an occasional quest — to learn who painted the cover illustration for the 1992 Roc edition of Dirty Work. Now, at last, the answer is revealed!

Jason Cosmo: Royal Crush

Greetings, Loyal Reader!

Goddess RaeI am pleased to announce the title of the next Jason Cosmo novel, Book 3 in the series, will be…ROYAL CRUSH.

Royal Crush will be a revised version of my 1990 book Royal Chaos. I’ve decided to continue with new titles for the new versions of the books to more clearly distinguish them from the classic Non-Trilogy versions.

I’ve begun preliminary work on the book, which consists of reading through Royal Chaos and making notes. Expect Royal Crush to be released later this year.

Best regards,

Dan McGirt

Differences between Jason Cosmo and Hero Wanted

Greetings, Loyal Reader!

I noticed someone came to my site via a search for “differences between Jason Cosmo and Hero Wanted” and thought it might be worthwhile to address that topic (again).  My first novel was Jason Cosmo, published in 1989. In 2009, I released a revised version of the book, called Hero Wanted(2009).

Who did Dirty Work? UPDATE: Deep Book speaks

Greetings, Loyal Reader!

Dirty Work (1993)

I have an update for you on our quest to learn “Who did Dirty Work?”  As you recall, I emailed a plea for help to a general-purpose email address at my former publisher Ace/Roc/NAL/Penguin.  (Read it here.)

That was last Friday. Yesterday I received a very kind result from a highly placed insider at the publisher whose name I shall withhold to protect the innocent.

I can’t say for sure that a shadowy ancient conspiracy Continue reading

Jason Cosmo: What comes next?

Greetings, Loyal Reader!

With Noble Cause written, what comes next in the world of Jason Cosmo? I’ve been giving this some thought and I want to share with you my plans.

Jason Cosmo

  • Housekeeping Measures: I have a little Jason Cosmo spring cleaning to do. This includes getting Noble Cause and the Jason Cosmo Non-Trilogy Omnibus into the Amazon Kindle Store, some tweaks to this website,  and a few other odds and ends.
  • Solving the Dirty Work Cover Mystery: See my last post. I really want to know who painted the cover for the U.S. edition of Dirty Work. I sent an email to my former publisher, Penguin, to see if they can tell me. If that doesn’t work… Continue reading
