As you know, I’ve been busy writing the followup to The Android’s Dream; what you might not know is that until earlier today, it didn’t have an official title. Well, now it does: Henceforth TAD2 is to be known as:
The High Castle.
Philip K. Dick fans among you will note that this is yet another sampling of one of Dick’s novel titles, in this case his Hugo-winning novel The Man in the High Castle. The conceit worked well for The Android’s Dream, so we decided to try it again. As with the first book, the title is also at least somewhat relevant to the story, although again in an indirect way and not in the manner in which PKD himself used his “High Castle” in his book.
As I’ve noted before, the book is coming along pretty well; I look forward to showing it to you all in early 2008.
Unrelated, but amusing: I put up a picture of myself in my Wikipedia entry. I sort of wonder how long it will stay up.
