In The Deep Places Of The World

The Jed Horn series usually hasn’t involved a great deal of research (certainly nowhere near as much as either the Praetorian series or Kill Yuan).  A little bit of looking around for cool big-bore rifles for the Witch Hunters to carry, perhaps, but for the most part, the series has been a somewhat more serious version of telling spook stories around the campfire at Scout Camp (and depriving young Scouts of many hours of sleep).

But with Older and Fouler Things, I ran into the need to do some research.  Since the story is a cross between The Exorcist, Dracula, and an old-fashioned dungeon crawl (with holy gunslingers and a biker priest/exorcist), there is a substantial part that happens underground, in an old, abandoned silver mine.  Now, I’ve been in a hard-rock mine before, but it was many, many moons ago, so memory is hazy, at best.  I had to do some digging.

The best resource I found was a YouTube channel entitled “Exploring Abandoned Mines and Unusual Places.”  I got a good idea of general layouts of old hard-rock mines, whether silver, copper, or even tin.

I also found some stuff that kind of fit in with the Jed Horn series in an even more thematic way:

Pleasant dreams…

Older and Fouler Things comes out on September 22, and the Kindle is available for pre-order now.
