TEARS IN RAIN 2049 – 20:49 20/10

TEARS IN RAIN 2049 COVER

The full eBook will be posted here for free on .PDF (and ePub) at 20:49 on 20/10.

A sequel five years in the making. Alongside a sequel thirty-five years in the making.

It follows several strands: a very personal thorough look at my relationship with Blade Runner, new analyses and thoughts on the film, a review of my 2012 book and an attempt to contextualise, and also a comprehensive review of Blade Runner 2049.

I always keep my promises. Eventually.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

In which I fail

After Killer Looks I had to take a good look at what I’d done. I’d cut a lot out, a lot of it was just poor, and I’d ended up with a healthy sixty page salute to American Psycho. I’m happy with what I did with Killer Looks, but realize it could be beefier. This is when I realized my ‘write four books in four months’ Summer mantra wasn’t going to pay off.

With creative difficulties and timing issues, I’ve decided to cancel work on my novel Train until next year or so. Or maybe never, I don’t know. Tears In Rain 2 will still happen for September-ish, and Up, Down, Left, Right will reach its finale come August 3rd.

I’m sorry. My life’s about to get a lot busier so these inconsistent updates might become a ‘feature’ of Blogossus. After Tears 2 it’ll be full frontal fiction for Blogossus. Pretty much.
