Archon Schedule (Oct 12-14th)

TweetIf you’re going to be in the St. Louis area, I’ll be at Archon in a couple of weeks.  Archon is the Midwest’s Premier Science Fiction and Fantasy Event.  Last year was my first year, but I had such a great time that I immediately signed up to come back.  I’ll be on a number […]

New Release — Empire of Alexandria

TweetAs history often proves, holding an empire together is much harder than taking one.  Corruption and bureaucratic bloat sets in, while everyone’s looking out for themselves.  And taking an empire that’s deep into its aristocratic ways is a whole ‘nother story as Heron and the Alexandrians soon find out. And I swear none of this […]

The Math of Quality (Or Why the Gatekeeper System is Failing)

TweetThe Overview Quality is a nebulous word.  When it can be defined by a concrete measurement it serves as a gatekeeper for the customer, keeping what would otherwise be a unfulfilling experience from their unknowing hands.  When its meaning flails about, providing muted grays and hazy shadows, its purpose becomes counter to its core mission.

New Story – The Cageless Zoo

TweetWriters are like mothers.  They claim that they love each of their children the same, except they really have a secret favorite they love slightly more than the rest.  While I love all my stories, this story, The Cageless Zoo, is the one secretly give extra treats to when the others aren’t looking. You can […]

Reviews for The Digital Sea

TweetSince the publication of The Digital Sea back in January, I’ve been rather busy.  I finished the first draft of my alt-history novel The Fires of Alexandria, gotten my YA speculative fiction novel Gamers ready for publication (hopefully to be released in a week) and started on book two for The Digital Sea trilogy – […]
