False House for web

Welcome to my web site. I hope you enjoy browsing through it.

As I mentioned previously, I have a new book coming out soon. This one isn’t an Evenmere story, but the beginning of a new series. We had hoped to have it out before Christmas, but it looks like it may be sometime in early January, 2020, instead. Here’s the blurb: 

Ride with Gray Darien into a land of wonder, where every animal, every blade of grass, every cup and sword, every tree, insect, and bird has a voice. A dangerous world filled with objects and beings that can reason, where merciless predators can conspire, and every creature has its own agenda. A land where Gray and his companions must learn to rapidly adapt or die.

 Below is the cover illustration, done by Bryan Burke and Scott Faris.

A short story of mine, The Day of the Shark, was recently published in Howard Jones’ fun pulp magazine, Tales from the Magician’s Skull. I did considerable research to try to get the ocean setting accurate. I hope readers find it enjoyable.

My short story, The Battle of York, which originally appeared in The Magazine of Science Fiction and Fantasy and was later in Tor Books’ Year’s Best SF 10, was reprinted by Lightspeed Magazine, and can be read online for free.  There is also an interview and a free audio version.  The audio version can be found here.

I have a short story appearing on The Night Land website, entitled The Last Roadmaker, found here.  William Hope Hodgson’s The Night Land was a passion for the late Editor Andy Robertson, and his site is a real labor of love, so while you’re there, delve into it a bit. There’s a lot of original fiction based on the book, along with facts and speculations about Hodgson and his work.

An audiobook version of my rewrite of Hodgson’s The Night Land is now available at Audible, Amazon, and other on-line retailers. 

Thanks to artist Bob Eggleton for graciously allowing me to use a portion of his work, which appeared as the cover for the first edition of The False House, for my banner.
