False House for web

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

I’m currently putting the finishing touches on my new novel, The Back of the Beyond. This one isn’t an Evenmere story, but the beginning of a new series. My former editor at Warner Books, Betsy Mitchell, now freelance, has gone through the manuscript and made editing suggestions, and I’m working on those now. We’re shooting to have it out by Christmas, 2019. I’ll have more information as we get further along.

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.
