Here we go, kids. At long last, the third novel in the Piers Knight series is here. The third book gets a third new artist, the sensational Steven Gilberts, he who did such a stunning job on the first book in the release of the Teddy London series, The Things That Are Not There. The book is shipping to the printers today and will premier (God willing, of course) at BaltiCon this Memorial Day weekend. E-Yow! Our boy does it again!!

At last, it’s one of those collections that was announced around a year ago, but here it finally comes. It’s a gathering of stories of the undead, but interestingly, one that said it did not want stories of zombies or vampires. Be creative, the editors shouted. So, what did our boy CJ do? What else–he wrote a story with zombies and vampires. Many might not think that the best approach, but it worked. And here comes yet another volume with a tale by our boy CJ!

Now here’s a collection we’ve been waiting for. The Challenge of the Unknown: with your host MARV RICHARDS! stories started like many CJ Henderson series do, with no thought whatsoever that there would be any more stories past the first one. Like all the others, however, that first stand alone story was soon followed by another, and now there are enough for a new book, and so here it comes. Great news, the story What Every Coin Has, which featured legendary TV star Carl Kolchak will appear in the collection. It was touch and go for a while, considering Kolchak is a licensed character, but the licensers gave their approval, so all the Challenge stories will appear together. Put that together with the great Cameron Garth cover (shown right here), and it looks like another great book for our boy CJ!

Looks like our boy CJ has made his way into another book in the popular new “13″ series from Padwolf Publishing. Each volume features 13 stories around a central theme. This time it’s far off futures. We know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but the classic, sleek look of the old time sci fi collections we grew up with this one possesses has us ready to dive in as soon as it’s in print!

If you’re reading this one even as it’s first appearing here on the site, this one is already at the printer! “Bet Your Own Man: the Hardboiled Fiction of CJ Henderson” is one our boy has been waiting for for a while now. Not only was the collection assembled by one of his favorite editors, the illustrious Jack Dolphin, but it also features a cover by his wildly talented daughter, Erica. It’s the third time he’s gotten to work with each of these major talents, but the only time the three of them have all been teamed on the same project. This is gonna be one of the good ones!

Well, it’s taken our boy CJ a while, but at long last the much anticipated sequel to Central Park Knight is on its way. The third book in the Piers Knight series, Radio City Knight, was completed back in December. And now, it’s been read and approved by the publisher, which means a bit of editing and it’s on its way to the printer. Of course, it needs a cover, but as you can see below, that’s been taken care of. Each book in the series has had a different cover artist to try and capture the mood of that individual novel. And, everyone involved felt there was no better choice for a story about the gates of Hell overflowing into our world than Steven Gilberts. Now, there might be some of you that think our boy CJ might have gone a bit dippy, getting the guy who did the cover for “But Seriously, Folks” the collected best of his comedy to paint an urban fantasy cover. If you’d like proof that there was some wisdom to that decision, go check out Gilberts’ art at http://stevengilberts.com

Here’s a wild one. Our boy CJ just got back from having a blast down in VA for MystiCon, and now he’s turning around and driving right back … only two weeks later … and for only one day! The grand high pubah of the Roanoke Valley ComiCon was so impressed with CJ that he invited him down for their show on March 9th. This was, of course, sudden, but CJ jumped at the chance to head South again (“It is winter, you know” being his only comment) and so will be at the show in just a handful of days. Anyone who can make the date should check out their website: www.roanokevalleycomicon.com The more the merrier. And, with luck, CJ will be premiering his newest collection: Bet Your Own Man. Fingers crossed the printer can deliver in time. If not there, then at ZenkaiKon two weeks later. One way or the other, though, our boy CJ is headed for the show!

Here it is, at long last … the book that could not be killed. Bet Your Own Man is the definitive collection of the hardboiled stories of our boy CJ. Acclaimed editor Jack Dolphin has returned to put together this incredible book that covers every genre CJ works in, each story accompanied by his before and after commentary. This one is an absolute must for Henderson fans, especially considering the cover is the first time ever his daughter, Erica (Baby’s First Mythos, the World Bestiary) has done a cover for one of his volumes. Holding out for the best, I guess!

Hey, Star Trek fans … is that Wil Wheaton holding up a copy of our boy CJ’s new book “Brooklyn Knight?” Why, we believe it is! This is something. First, the main man, William Shatner, gives the book a terrific quote for its front cover, and now we’ve got a Next Gen star showing interest. Can Deep Space Nine and Voyager (not to mention Enterprise) be far behind? Well, yeah, they might … but we still thought this was pretty cool and just had to post it!
