Sigils and Totems - a Meikle Mythos
Itís a simple enough concept.
I've also started linking it through to some of my other characters and ongoing work, so there's sigils and totems stories featuring members of the Seton family, Derek Adams, the Midnight Eye, and Carnacki. Augustus Seton will be getting involved in 16th C Scotland soon too.
I think Iíve stumbled into something that could keep me busy for a few years.
The first two novellas that used the concept, BROKEN SIGIL and PENTACLE were both well received and a third THE JOB is now available in ebook. Thereís a new novel that expands the idea further, SONGS OF DREAMING GODS, where a house is lying empty in the town center of St. Johns, Newfoundland after a brutal ritual murder, and, coming soon, THE BOATHOUSE, where the rooms are on an old whaling boat in a derelict shed and seem connected to an old chess set, and the arrival of a hurricane. Alonside them, there's a growing number of short stories, including the title story in my latest CARNACKI collection, THE EDINBURGH TOWNHOUSE.
Iíve also got an idea for a big honking fantasy trilogy using the concept, but thatíll have to wait until Iíve got time to do it justice.
Wish me luck, Iím about to knock on the door again.
