Howdy! I found that Asimov's is having a chat on Feb 24th at 9 pm with our duo. Here is what they said:
Pirate Stories

Aarrr matey, chat with Jim Blaylock , Ian McDowell, Tim Powers, and other scurvey dogs about horror, fantasy, and science fiction pirate stories

   Can't wait! Dave Garrett

This event was a bit of a dud, for those of us hoping Blaylock would be joining!

Blaylock was reportedly unable to join the chat session, because the chat protocol ports were blocked at the school where he works, and he was unable to join in.

Perhaps Mr. Blaylock could schedule a time to answer some questions here on his site forum?

The main question everyone generally has would likely be: what are you working on, and when might it be published?

Also, those of us diehard fans would really love to see a new novel-length work published, rather than another artificially-induced rarity.  How likely is it that we'll get to see another novel from you?

Regards,
W. Chris Smith

Now I don’t feel quite as bad that I forgot about the chat…

I’m sensing that this thread may evolve into a desperate plea to Mr. Blaylock for some information on future works, so I think I’ll step up to the que…

I agree that the most pressing questions are: what’s next on the horizon, and when might we expect it? However, I’ve been wondering for many years if Mr. Blaylock has any interest in producing more “traditional fantasy” or “steampunk” novels in the future.  Mr. Blaylock’s novels in those two genres really are my favorites, and I think he does an extraordinary job creating just the right characters and atmospheres that are required for novels of those types to work.

Here’s to hoping the message gets through!
