- The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there. But that question was one among legion, because what memories he did have were as comforting as a blackjack in the dark. So it wasn’t surprising when he found out that trouble was his business, and business was kicking his door down.
It took more than two years of dogged pursuit of inspiration for Parallel Visions: City of Angels City of Demons to go from inspiration to publication. During this frequently challenging process, I received help and encouragement from many sources. This was particularly true of the beta readers, who included David Cross, Eric Pobers, Eric Hall, Jenny Johnson, Joe Miller, Lane Whittaker, Stephanie Feldstein, and Tamara Boyd.
I lift a glass of Athena’s Wise Whiskey in salute to John C. Hocking for his early and frequent incitement to keep telling a story with so many of the characteristics that drew us both into speculative fiction.
I want to thank Steve Bartlett for reading the beta version. His audio brought the characters to life and provided me with insight into the prose and a voice over that kept on giving. A tip of the fedora goes to the Ann Arbor Area Writers Group Tuesday night members for their input: Dave Wanty, Elizabeth Van Ark, Karen Simpson, Kate Ting, Robyn Ford, Stephanie Feldstein, Wei (David) Liu, and Yma Johnson.
My gratitude and hard-boiled appreciation goes to my copyeditor, Gretchen Grey for wearing thin the mental shoe-leather required to edit this novel.
Thanks to all the open source and freeware developers, contributors, and other men and women who walk the mean streets of software freedom, who gave me the tools to support my writing process: 7zip, Calibre, Dia, Eclipse, Firefox, GIMP, Inkscape, LibreOffice, MediaWiki, Notepad++, Scribus, Sigil, WinMerge, and XnView.
