R is for Renaissance Faire

R is for Renaissance Faire is an alphabetical, pictorial guide to a Renaissance Faire.  From A is for archery to Z is for zany, this book shows the people and things you might see when you visit a Renaissance Faire.  The pictures were taken by my father-in-law at the first annual Mid-South Renaissance Faire.  The book may be read to young children, or grade school students can read it for themselves.  It makes a wonderful souvenir of a RenFaire, or a great way to explain a RenFaire to people who've never been to one.  Available in paperback or e-book.

Heroic Fantasy Short Stories

Heroic Fantasy contains adventures in sorcery, swordplay, and strange lands combining original tales from contemporary authors together with classic storytelling by Homer, Chaucer, R. E. Howard, and other famous authors.  One of the stories is my "Erzabet and the Gladiators."  The book will be released in hardcover in August 2017 in the UK and in September in the USA.  

 Knee-High Drummond and the Durango Kid

Knee-High Drummond and the Durango Kid is a collection of short stories, a mix of western adventure and comedy.  Two outlaws try to go straight, but it sure seemed like a life of crime was easier.   Four stories:  "Early Retirement," "The Flower of Montana," "Just a Friendly Game of Poker," and "The Schoolmaster's Tale."  Available in e-book only.


Alternative Truths

Alternative Truths is an anthology of political satire. Most of the stories are science fiction.  A few, like mine, are fantasy. All seek to answer the question 'what would happen if an unethical businessman with no experience in government were elected to the White House?'  As my colleague K. G. Anderson said, “Twenty-four science fiction writers had one hundred days to think about Trump.  The result is Alternative Truths.”   Some of the stories are silly, some are serious, and some are downright scary as my 23 colleagues and I consider what might happen.  Available in paperback or e-book.
