The Half Street Horror

My fourth novel will be called The Half Street Horror. It’s about four eighth graders who build a gigantic killer robot-like machine to conquer an equally gigantic robot-like monster lurking in an illegal junkyard in their North Minneapolis neighborhood. It’ll be out in 2013, I think, and has the same great editor and publisher as my first three novels.

I decided before I had a plot that it was time to set a book in North Minneapolis, where I live. This one’s for you, NoMi!

Update: the book’s final title is The Winter of the Robots. Check recent updates for more information.
