The topic says it all.

How many novels can you write about an ex Bobby on the Isle of Man?

Well, given how dangerous Midsomer is, I expect you could drag it out to at least 50 novels ...

But on topic - wasn't SE talking about (remote) possibilities recently of finishing the trilogy?

To keep this off tangent, my wife is currently watching through all of the midsummer murders series, so you're probably right there is probably quite a lot to mine there.

On topic, didnt these just get put on hold because they weren't commercially successful enough?

Walk in Shadow did get put on hold because of sales. Too dirge like and not enough humor.

So we have the Toblakai books going.

I'm sure I saw something recently about him possibly revisiting/finishing off Walk in Shadow.

Or did I just dream it?

Erikson has said he plans to return to Walk in Shadow after he finishes No Life Forsaken and another Bauchelain and Korbal Broach novella. Of course, he said the same thing after The God is Not Willing. No Life Forsaken has taken longer than he expected and was originally supposed to be completed by early 2023.

Over the years he's written several hundred pages of Walk in Shadow -- so much that he's talked of splitting out the Jaghut war on death (or maybe it was the High King material?) into a fourth book. Whether that's feasible with his publisher is unknown.

Yes, he said about 300 I think. And also that he knew how to go on with it. But it might take some time I think, with other books coming first.

re No Life Forsaken:

STATUS: As of December 2023, Erikson says he was about 3/4 of the way through writing the novel when he "realised that I was writing two novels--not one. And so structurally, it was a mess. And so what I had to do was step back and reorder basically everything I had done up to this point. And then having reordered it, I realised I needed to start adding some bridging scenes and bridging chapters that could link them back up and make it a bit more of a cohesive storyline as opposed to two. So that's kind of what I'm hammering away at right now. It's weird to be working on Chapter 4 knowing I've got, I don't know, 17 chapters already written past that.
