Mythian is live!

Mythian is the story of a man who leaves his flesh and blood life to enter a virtual world for retirees called “Heroes of Mythian.” That’s right: in the future, you don’t die of old age, you retire. The main character, Ethan Crane, decides to retire after discovering his wife’s mind was downloaded into the game in secret following a fatal accident, years before.

The series is completed. There are 3 books. Book 2 comes out in November, and book 3 comes out in December.

Here’s a link to the book on Amazon:

For an idea how the game feels, have a listen to my wonderful narrator who talks about the book a little and then reads a short excerpt:

Hope you enjoy!

Monkey Do — A new short story in the “Hell’s Children” universe

Hey folks,

Almost a year ago, I was invited to participate in a charity anthology that gives the proceeds to “Pets For Vets.”
I was asked to write a short story in the “Hell’s Children” universe, and did — from an animal’s perspective. You’ll delight and cringe at Max, the chimp, as he deals with life in a world with no adults (but lots of pesky kids).

Enjoy!

Just in time for Halloween!

Harvey Click caught my attention a few years ago when he wrote an amazing book called “The Bad Box.” Ever since then, I kid you not: I read everything he puts out. This time around, he wrote a collection of short stories. Now, I gotta warn you: his stuff is pretty dark. As in “Lisa on a bad day” dark.

You’ve been warned!

Very cool review from Jon Mollison of Castallia House

Just got an incredibly deep and insightful review of my “This Dark Age” series from Castalia House. The reviewer — Jon Mollison — really seemed to capture the spirit of the novels, and I’m flattered that I seem to have hit the notes soundly for him (and for me).
Check it out….
