I saw a publishing date of February the First, this year. Is that correct? I haven't been on here much lately so I don't know if I missed an official announcement. Plus I abhor Facebook so I have no idea if Dan has talked about it on that platform. I know Omega Canyon has been gestating a long time and I'm hoping it's actually coming out in two weeks time.

On Facebook about a week ago Dan answered a similar question…

Dan Simmons – – OMEGA CANYON is still a work in progress. I shan't go into all the reasons why, but it IS still being written. (It's about 900 pp in final draft right now). I'm sorry that people have been waiting, but -- to quote my late friend Harlan Ellison -- "The work will be finished when the work is FINISHED."

Thanks. That's what I figured since there hasn't been much chatter about it lately but I just wanted to make sure.

Ah, anticipation:

(Not to compare a Dan Simmons novel to ketchup, mind you, but that old commercial just leaped in my mind and now I can't get that stupid song out of my head.)

I don't know which one of us, me or Elderly Dad, is looking forward to reading it more. Fair winds to you, sir, as you sail through that final draft!

I will devour Omega Canyon with relish when it becomes available to the reading public.

(I hope there's a recap, tho, because I haven't read Psi Canyon yet.)

I just finished some light reading about Nuclear Espionage in 1943 Germany: White Flower, Black Forest. Not too bad.

Relish? Meh...I take my hot dogs with standard mustard...or perhaps some chili, if it's a cold day.

Shouldn't be too much of a problem. I skipped Slaughterhouse 1-4 and managed to keep up.

I wouldn’t put too much faith in those release dates. Here is the latest news that I have heard. I believe it was on Facebook…

Dan Simmons update on Omega Canyon, January 13, 2019 – –

OMEGA CANYON is still a work in progress. I shan't go into all the reasons why, but it IS still being written. (It's about 900 pp in final draft right now). I'm sorry that people have been waiting, but -- to quote my late friend Harlan Ellison -- "The work will be finished when the work is FINISHED."
