Projected Release Dates for Farisa’s Crossing

I’m serializing Farisa’s Crossing. Conceptually, the story divides neatly into five segments: The Forest, The City, The Road, The Dead; and The Lovers.

The first segment will be available on Amazon for the lowest possible price (99c) and for free elsewhere (stay tuned) in April 2020. As of now, my intention is to make each segment (at the time of release) free; a short reading comprehension quiz (designed to be easy for anyone who has read the previous segment) will be used to make availability of each segment conditional on having completed the last.

When the last segment is made available, the intermediate segments will no longer be available for free, but the complete book will be accessible at a reasonable price (between $5 and $8).

The planned release dates, which I’d give a high degree of confidence (85+ percent) I will make, are:

  • April 26, 2020: “The Forest”
  • July 3, 2020: “The City”
  • September 4, 2020: “The Road”
  • November 15, 2020: “The Dead”
  • January 17, 2021: “The Lovers”

I intend to release the complete book on January 17, 2021, unless further editing is (for some unforeseen reason) necessary. I’ll be encouraging early readers to discuss the book and form theories on the reddit r/antipodes.

  1. Did you make it easier to read the book by removing or explaining in-world slang?
    It was the biggest issue for me when I was on beta-test.

    • I’m not removing it. It’s flavor. But I’ll be attentive to it in editing. When characters use Lyrian, Loranian, or Modern Vehu slang (with its Yiddish flavor) I make an effort toward redundancy. I don’t want hapax legomena, except in reference to “the Hapax Rebellion”– a historical event that is (obviously) mentioned exactly once.

  2. Hey Michael.

    Can I read any bits right now?

    Also, will the final book be available in dead tree format? It would be nice to add them to my bookcase.

  3. C’mon man! I’ve been checking this blog for months and nothing. No sharp, surgical analyses of corporate dysfunction, no articles about the roots of math – there is a substantial portion of people who have become addicted to your intellectual output – don’t forget about us!

      • But he doesn’t complain! He analyzes – there’s a difference. Complaining is reporting the symptoms, analysis is discovering the disease. If I wanted complaining, I’d just go to the neckbeards on slashdot. I don’t want neckbeards, I want neckbeardology.
