Work in progress
Or not in progress, as the case may be. Most of this isn't being actively worked on at any particular time. It's stuff that will happen eventually, and in many cases there's a significant chunk of it already in existence. Things that show up in this section are often short stories or novelettes that will be reworked into novels. I've got a bad habit of starting to write a short story for an anthology, and ending up with something that gets accused by beta-readers and editors of being the synopsis for a novel. If it's listed here, they can see what its current status is without nagging me about it.
Taxman -- urban fantasy set in contemporary London. Subject of a whine in rasfc about not sure whether it's one for an sf publisher or a romance publisher, but currently being aimed at the latter. The current work in progress, after having been laid aside for some years.

"He's dead, Jim." Some things are now in the "abandoned" category, for various reasons.
Dec 2011: In particular, it's highly unlikely that most of the partials co-written with Alex will ever be finished -- she's been seriously ill, is effectively unable to write commercial fiction for the forseeable future, and will probably not be able to pick up several of our joint projects even when she recovers. One of them I might be able to finish solo, but most of them were very much the product of the interaction between us. I might put up the fragment of the Syndicate honeymoon story that exists, if the beta-readers say that what's there is worth reading as is. (ETA Jan 2012 - the Syndicate honeymoon fragment and writers' notes are now available on the site.)
