Warren Ellis has posted an excerpt from his forthcoming novel:
What follows is a conversation between private investigator Michael McGill and the Chief Of Staff to the office of the President of the United States, essentially explicating the initial plot engine of the book. Again, this is all crabby-looking first draft stuff, so, you know, just roll with what it's saying, rather than how it's saying it. Good prose and funny jokes will be inserted later. I've got nine months to finish the book and make it pretty, and then it's published in early 2005. I'm probably going to need that long to come up with a title.
