What is on back-burners: a zombie novella (13 and Bodies), some sci-fi, creepy tale of a ship wreck (Lilith Awakes), some cannibalism (All of Us, Food) and Land of the Blind. Those are all partially written.
What I am scampering to finish now: Cold Hunger (with DA Roberts!!!!!) is about to be released and is about a wendigo and the Donner Party. Also, a big release will be Polar Knights: The Lost Franklin Expedition which is dear to me and about the ships Terror and Erebus. It's coming very soon. The companion book is in the works and is about a team in the arctic who are researching the Franklin Expedition. Poseidon was the name of the ship's dog on Terror. I am also considering allowing Vigil to solve the murders in Texarkana (This became the movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown) I also have an interest in the cannibalism in the Andes plane crash. I don't think I'm finished with the ice and am looking at Everest for a novel. AND I want to return to Titanic.
There's kind of a joke about me lately. I am doing 2 things. First, I am writing about ice/snow/mountaineering. I am writing what I know. Secondly, I am moving more into historical horror. That isn't a new area because I have always added science and history to my works. Helen of Sparta, Wild Boys, Titanic, Dyantlov 9, and the arctic books, Cold Hunger, etc. have all been historical.
I intend to finish the books on the back-burner as possible novellas, but then I am pretty much finished with mainstream horror. SHOCK! I'll add to the Virgil McLendon series a little at a time. But I am evolving into an historical-horror writer for now and hope that fans embrace the change. In a year or two, I may switch again and return to the general horror or find a new challenge. The main thing is that I am writing at a frenetic pace and couldn't be happier!
