These are the anthologies I have contributed stories to and the books I have written.
1692. The Isle of Skye.
Eoin, telepath and lost prince to the Fyskar, has returned for revenge and a birthright.
What could possess a plague doctor to destroy an entire clan? Fearchar, Eoin’s hired hand, is determined to find out why he was hired with enough gold to see him to the end of his days. Seonaid, Fearchar’s wife, is uneasy with their new guest who has taken up residence in their home to work as the town doctor.
A whirlwind into the mind and the heart, Fyskar traverses the metaphysical and the physical, from the Isle of Skye to Persia. One man’s life can be so small, and yet change the destiny of the entire world.
Fane Anson had a goal of passing life with his head down. Had being the operative word. After years in surgery and military training, he isn’t keen on getting the attention of anyone else with authority to throw around. His commanding officer however is bent on him finding out what the word happiness means. Most of those methods just lead to trouble for Fane though.
Prince Ishan Orlov took the initiative to obtain the infamous Split-Shot Anson from Eand to train his family’s personal troops in New Punjab. What he didn’t expect was Anson to be a guy.
First meetings are not always what they appear. At the request of his commanding officer, Fane joins Prince Orlov in New Punjab. Now, Fane must navigate a new culture, a traitorous Baron, and a set of feelings for the Prince he’s not sure are reciprocal.
World War 4
The Grey Monster wiped out the Eastern Hemisphere and now has its sight set on the West.
Nathaniel McCormic wakes to his best friend Alexander Deck banging on his front door. An RWE bomb dropped at the edge of town.
As a splitting headache and unease bury into their senses, Nat and Deck hunt through town to find a few of their friends still alive, all suffering similar symptoms.
They find themselves cornered into a decision when the unease turns into a transformation. Wolves, Glendwellers, inhabit their bodies.
Nat and his friends must cross New America to find a scientist who can remove the creatures before they become permanent additions.
Stumbling into The Flock, a cult who sees these intruders on their territory as possessed demons, the friends’ race for time turns into a journey for survival.
Will they endure the end of the world and maintain their humanity?
Fane Anson and Ishan Orlov find themselves pulled into the future to save them from the Grey Monster, by an eccentric scientist named Corbin Ziphle, founder of Joiner Petroleum, and revolutionary doctor Sophia Lisgon. The doctor and scientist partner together to save mankind by cryo-preserving people from across the world and across time. However, to escape the Grey Monster, Sophia and Corbin need Fane to put them into the safety of a parallel dimension.
Between meeting with Bernard – a White Horse of the Fyskar Corbin pulled, and the Glendwellers, Fane Anson must confront himself in order to protect his lover, his team, and the Subgalaxia spaceship from the Grey Monster. Is he ready to face the memories to control his powers?
A few millennia into the future, on a different planet, in aging biodomes, the human race grapples with a new threat, or maybe a new gift – humans with fire in their blood. Nigrae Lunam, ex-soldier and current co-leader for the Caeruleum gang, finds himself ensnared in a fire fight when he rescues a pair of children, Sam and Abby from the Aurantiaco gang, and a man with cognac-colored eyes, Sanctus, from the Rubrum gang. This would be any average day, save for the fact Sanctus is a rare Providentia, a person who can boost a fire-user’s powers ten fold. A priceless, coveted treasure in the city of Urbs Aquarum. As Lunam shows the man and children what it means to be safe, he develops a fondness for Sanctus that he swears he will never reveal. When Sam and Abby are threatened and Sanctus is kidnapped, Lunam must face the responsibility of taking over another gang’s territory, his true feelings for Sanctus, and the chance it all blows apart in a fiery inferno.
The planet’s name is Coplahee, although different cultures may call it something else. The star system has two suns: one red dwarf called Harcnor and one yellow giant named Armad. The twin comets of Veleye appear every eighty-six years. There are four planets in the star system: Alet, Soma, and Minoma, but only Coplahee is inhabited.
Coplahee has three moons: Taslin, Bocaslin, and Jocaslin.
The stories in this anthology are arranged in such a way as to provide the reader with a history of Coplahee and its inhabitants.
At the crossroads between Mieville’s New Crobuzon and M.T. Anderson’s Viriconium, on the border of Dhalgren and D&D, just to the left of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld and Mad Max’s Fury Road … lies Achten TanTales from the Year Between is a biannual anthology that brings together some of the most talented writers from around the globe to invent an original world from scratch, then explore that world through their writing. After a week of intensive world-building, each author sets out to expand their new, fabulous universe through short-stories, flash fiction, poems, songs, and whatever other genres their boundless imaginations unleash … In this inaugural volume, the world in question is Achten Tan, an at times brutal and at times humorous city located at the foot of the Godtree on the southern edge of the Bonewastes. Home to giant ants, mysterious mirror fragments, and the world’s greatest barbecue rib joint, Achten Tan is bursting with stories of fantasy and wonder. One part Italo Calvino, one part Frank Herbert, with just a dash of George R.R. Martin and L. Frank BaumWarning. Achten Tan: Land of Dust & Bone is weird. Inside its pages are drama and humor; action and longing; violence, death, and love. It’s strange and beautiful, a living instance of the old aphorism regarding the whole being greater than the parts. Oh, and there are also giant ants and a city obsessed with barbecued ribs.There are poems and short stories, one-act plays and flash fiction, epistles and excerpts from academic texts, erotic tales and even recipes. It’s a wonderful, fabulous, bizarre, and exciting mix of fiction.
21 original tales of suspense, horror, humanity, and the relentless living dead!
A virus races through Earth and warps the humans in its path into flesh-eating zombies. Zombies or Munchers. Shamblers or Zombs. No matter what you call them, a bite or scratch is all that it takes. Some turn quickly, for others it takes days. Some can spring, others shuffle along. But one thing remains the same: a blow to the brain is the only thing that destroys them.
History is told by the victors.
Stories are told by the heroes.
In every tale from myth, legend, or faerie there are the voiceless: those characters who live in the silent, untold spaces, or whose inner worlds are never visited. This collection retells 14 classic stories you may think you already know, from perspectives you never thought to consider.
The unexamined life is not worth living, or so the saying goes. No longer will we let those voices go unheard.
This is Heads and Tales: because like the flip of a coin, the stories can change. Take a shot, and see where it takes you.
