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

It's taken a terribly long time, but we're finally close to getting The High House and The False House back into print in 
both paperback and ebook editions, along with a third book in the series, entitled Evenmere. All three should be available sometime this summer (2015)

The covers are being created by Scott Faris scott@fariswheel.com. Each will be a different color, using the key motif shown in this early version. They should make a nice set. I appreciate the encouragement many of you have given me to get this done.

I have updated my page On Writing, breaking it into several sections and adding additional material. It can be found in the above menu.

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, has just been 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 recently did an interview with Craig Alan Loewen, which is available here   I also was asked to do an interview with the Scribophile website for writers, and it's available here.  In order to read it, you have to join Scribophile.  Membership is free, and the site seems very cool. 

I have a new 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.

I've had several requests for a print edition of my own rewrite of The Night Land.  My version, The Night Land, A Story retold, is now available for $11.99 on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  It's also available as an ebook for both the Kindle and the Nook ($2.99).  Should you read and enjoy it, I would deeply appreciate it if you would post a review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, etc, wherever you'd like.  If you read it and don't enjoy it . . . I still appreciate you giving it a try.
