Long-time readers of this blog will have noticed a spate of unusual photos, posted without explanation since April, that teased…something. With the MAJESTIC-12 series officially announced, I can safely say that these photos are hints as to the first book, MJ-12: Inception, due out next fall.
And as promised, here’s the explanation of what they are.
This is indeed the famed Area 51, located in Groom Lake, Nevada. The super-secret military facility started simply as a reserve Army Air Force base called Indian Springs during World War II, and in our history, it became a testing ground for a wide variety of classified aircraft projects, including the Lockheed U-2 spy plane and the F-117 Stealth Fighter.
It’s also a part of UFO lore, being the secret base where the government allegedly houses and reverse-engineers alien technology. In MJ-12: Inception, Area 51 is…well, it’s in the book, and that’s all I’m saying about that. Continue reading
And here you go, the last bit of teasery goodness for the Secret Project. Enjoy!

Yet another photo, sans context or explanation. Seems like a rather dour fellow. Who is he?
You can see the others here. Feel free to speculate below as to what they are and how they’re connected.
Who are these people? What are they doing? Looks like an odd cleanup crew or something. Any ideas?

There’s a new interview with me out today from Fantasy-Faction. I talked with the illustrious Dan Hanks — a stand-up guy if there ever was one — about The Venusian Gambit, finishing off the Daedalus series, and what comes next.
I’ve had to kind of tiptoe around that last bit in a number of interviews and such. I can safely say that there’s definitely a something next beyond short stories. In fact, I’m working on it now, and hopefully with out jinxing it, I think it’s some of my best writing. It’s not a continuation of the Daedalus series — that’s a completed story, in my mind, with no pressing need to go back to the setting. It’s new and different.
And that’s all I can say right about now. I’m hopeful there might be more about by September or so. In the interim, I’m gonna write, and you’ll have to hang tight. In the meantime, I do have a story in the Cthulhu Fhtagn! anthology out next month, and it looks like Unidentified Funny Objects 4, which has my “Confessions of an Interplanetary Art Fraud” therein, is due out in the fall.
But that’s all I can say for now. Except for these, which probably doesn’t help unless you do the research to figure out what they are. (Hint!)

I’m enjoying this immensely, and I promise all these random photos will lead to something. For now, I’ll simply invite you to take a look and, if you think you know what it is, feel free to comment. You can find the others I’ve done here.
With all the other stuff going on, I haven’t done one of these in a while. So here’s another picture for you. More to come.
