Gordon Dahlquist Q&A #17

Unread postby Liz » Sun Feb 22, 2009 3:04 pm

ONBC: Will there be another sequel after The Dark Volume?

GD: I hope so. I'm in the midst of working on it. The tentative title is The Chemickal Marriage.

ONBC: :snoopydances:

Oops. Forgot to add this:

I clarified with Gordon the spelling of book #3. This was his response:

It's an old-fashioned spelling, all the better to evoke olde knowledge of alchemy, rosicrucianism, etc. "The Chemickal Marriage" is a pretty well-known alchemical text from the 16th century - sort of unreadable, but also fascinating.
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

The first Chemickal wedding seems to be all about religious symmetry. Since Dalquist said he doesn't go in for symmetry, especially religious, I take it he is just borrowing the name. Since reading The Glass books, the title Chemickal Marriage sure is a luring title considering the ways it could tie into the story. Just the title has me hooked enough to add it to my book list.
