Available Darkness Episode 2, Interview with Hugh Howey, Free ForNevermore, and a Z 2134 update
Hey Fellow Goners,
Dave here with this week’s very late newsletter.
First, I apologize for the lateness. Sean and I have been working double-time on something top secret that we’re going to announce soon. Hint: It has to do with our zombie serial, Z 2134, which you may recall that we took down just a couple of days after it first went live.
Z 2134 WILL BE back, but it won’t be for a couple of weeks.
Sean and I will tell you more the minute we’re able to. But it’s good news.
This week we’re bringing you Available Darkness: Episode 2.
You can get it here:
If you already read the original AD book we released in August 2011, you can skip the first season (the first six episodes) over the next few weeks. Unless you either really loved the story and want to read the revised version to see how we’re making it better.
As I said last week, though, it’s not necessary to re-read the first season because we’re not changing the events which occurred in the book you already read.
If you haven’t read AD yet, now’s the perfect chance to hop on board. It’s got all the action, chills, mystery, and WTF endings you’ve come to expect from us. And it’s a whole new take on vampires — I mean completely different.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT…
Available Darkness follows a man who wakes up buried alive with no memory of his past.
In his pocket is a note telling him to avoid the police, avoid the sunlight, and don’t touch anyone. Because when he does, he drains their lives in an instant.
Also in the note, an address.
As he begins digging into his past, he finds himself reluctantly looking after an 11-year-old girl who he saved from a monstrous predator. He’s also being hunted by an FBI agent, and a mysterious agency who wants a secret that the amnesiac is holding.

Thanks to everyone who reviewed or emailed to tell us how much they’re enjoying Available Darkness. It’s cool to see the first book Sean and I started back in 2008 seeing new life as a serial. While many of our readers have already read the original book, many are only now discovering it. And in a way, I’m rediscovering it as I go through, revising it. It’s like seeing old friends, and is getting me excited to get started on the second season soon.
We’re continuing our free ForNevermore promotion today (Sept. 27) with Episode 3 (which we also had free last week), and Episode 4.
ForNevermore: Episode 3
ForNevermore: Episode 4
You can also get the FULL SEASON (Episodes 1-6) here if you don’t wanna wait to read the rest.

INTERVIEW WITH HUGH HOWEY
Lastly, if you’re a fan of Wool creator, Hugh Howey, Sean, Johnny, and I had Hugh on as a guest at The Self-Publishing Podcast.
Warning: The show has almost as much cursing as Boricio’s morning routine, so you might not want to listen to it work or in front of the kids.
