She Who Mauls

she who maulsThe story that started its life as The Boy’s Night Out is now available, after a quick editing and some revision, as She Who Mauls, via Gumroad.

The ebook will not be published on Amazon.

I decided to put it up as a Pay What You Want ebook – after all, it was born as a publicity stunt, I’ll keep using it as a publicity vehicle.

You can get the story for free, or set the price you think is right.

Check it out!

AMARNA, episode 2

Amarna preview smallThe second episode of AMARNA, my new pulp adventure serial, is available on Gumroad as of now.
The zip file on sale on Gumroad includes the epub, mobi and PDF versions of the second episode of the story.

Looking for answers to the mystery of Amarna, Valerie Cazaret and her unlikely allies stumble on something far larger than they suspected, and as the Nazi Thule Society steps in, the supernatural suddenly rears its ugly head.

What next?

Right now my Patreon supporters in the Five Bucks Gang and the Ten Bucks Brigade have already received their copy or the discount token to save on the ebook.
And in a few days – hopefully – the second episode of AMARNA will also be available on Amazon1.


  1. but truth to be told I prefer Gumroad because it allows me to publish in a variety of formats, and pays higher royalties.

Van Maanen’s Star

9a410eaaf9963756201434ccdb46df82_originalStar Eagles is a game created by Damon Richardson and published by Andrea Sfiligoi’s Ganesha Games.
Humanity faces an alien menace in this fun, easy-to-learn game of space battles.

I’ve been lucky enough to be involved very marginally in the project when I provided a few short snippets of fiction to spice-up the game handbook.
And as it usually happens, I found the universe interesting and worth exploring, and two characters, Tam and Lol, that would make it a fun thing exploring it.
So I asked Damon and Andrea for permission, and they allowed me to play in their backyard. The result is a story – hopefully the first of many – called Van Maanen’s Star.

My first ever military SF story is currently available in multiple formats through Gumroad. It will also go up on Amazon, but it will take a little longer for the oompa-loompas to do their job.
Check it out.

ADDENDUM: the oompa loompa were as fats as hell, and now Van Maanen’s Star is also on Amazon.

AMARNA, episode 1

Amarna preview smallAnd so we made it, despite the revolt of the Amazon oompa-loompas.
Because you see, I spent almost one hour uploading the text and the cover of the first episode of AMARNA on Amazon, and when I hit publish the thing just vanished.
[snaps fingers] Like that!

And so I said to myself, what the heck, I’ll use Gumroad1.

And so, here it goes – a simple zip file including both the epub and the mobi versions of the first episode of my serial, DRM-free, that you can buy on Gumroad for the same price you’d pay for the mobi alone on Amazon2.

And what’s more, on Gumroad you can SUBSCRIBE to the whole series, and get the files in your mailbox as soon as they are released, saving up to 22% on the retail price of the six installments.
Is this cool or what?

And now, what about a little preview?
