AFTERWORD

And now you have read Necropolis 2.

Or, at least, I hope you have.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the novel. Necropolis 2 was written in a strange time. Not a bad one, at least. When I finished Necropolis, I felt like I had finally overcome the primary roadblock in me becoming a legit author: creating novel-length material. Unless I was writing a fan fiction, I just didn't seem to be able to figure out how to come up with enough story to fill a book. I always ended up with novellas.

Necropolis, as flawed as it was, was a very necessary first step on the road to where I am today. Although I guess technically speaking the original incarnation of Ceaseless was my first novel-length material, at the time it felt like a fluke, since it happened in like 2008 and I didn't get Necropolis finished until 2013.

Necropolis felt legit.

So I felt a bit more confident when I launched into Necropolis 2. Another thing that made it weird was that originally, there wasn't going to be a Necropolis 2. I didn't switch plans until near the end of the book. Originally, we were going to switch over to Syberian Sunrise, which is actually the sixth novel in the series now, picking up with a new protagonist. We'd follow him for about three books and then he'd escape the crazy-ass situation he was in and discover Greg and Kyra floating in space, and they'd team up.

But given how popular Necropolis was, it felt really stupid to just drop these characters and not do a follow-up. And so I switched the ending and Necropolis 2 and 3 were born. It was probably for the best.

That's about all I have to say about it. Questions and comments are welcome. As for what comes next, well, chronologically, Necropolis 3 is next. It picks up about six hours later and serves to end the Necropolis trilogy, though it isn't the end of Greg's story. However, what's next in the series is a short story I wrote called Nerves of Steel. It's from the perspective of a Dark Ops guard that takes place during Necropolis 2.

Thanks for reading! And as always, thanks for the support!
