Alan Moore has many, many stories still to tell.

The celebrated British author known for ``V for Vendetta'' and ``Watchman'' among other works has a deal with Bloomsbury for the story collection ``Illuminations'' and a five-volume fantasy series, ``Long London.'' In a statement Monday, Moore said he was ``bursting with fiction, bursting with prose'' and thanked his publisher for its commitment to ``expanding the empire of the word.''
 
Moore's ``Illuminations,'' scheduled for fall 2022, takes in everything from ghosts to the big bang theory. ``Long London'' follows a ``sometimes-accessible shadow city that is beyond time,'' starting with London after World War II and ``following the populations of writers, criminals, artists, and magicians through that familiar city and a version of London just beyond our knowledge,'' according to Bloomsbury.
 
The first volume of ``Long London'' comes out in 2024.
