• “The Listeners” in Gargoyle Magazine

    The concept for “The Listeners” came when my wife and I walked into BLFM Literary Saloon in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. The book Mysterio’s Encyclopedia of Magic and Conjuring was displayed on a shelf just inside the door, and after a 60-second internal debate about whether to purchase the magic guide or a Lovecraft collection, […]

  • “The Tenders” in Electric Spec

    The new issue of Electric Spec features my fantasy story “The Tenders.” The story is an adventure with pirates, sea battles and a bit of magic. “The Tenders” takes place about a year before the events of “The Morning Tree,” which appeared last year in SERIAL Magazine. Earlier this week, I provided a few comments […]

  • “A Small Price to Pay” in Everything! Volume 1

  • “A Protector on the Road” in Broadswords and Blasters

    I’ve returned to Broadswords and Blasters with “A Protector on the Road,” a follow-up to “Irini,” which appeared back in 2018 in issue 5. I’m excited to be back! A prequel to Irini, “The Ladies of Lethseme,” was featured earlier this year in Daily Science Fiction.

  • “The Perpetual Empire” in Planet Scumm

    Jordan Rane’s prison is a glass-walled cell in the ocean depths. The only way to escape is to trust the imperial agents who keep him there. “The Perpetual Empire” is my second story for Planet Scumm, out now in Issue #7. It’s set in the same world as my earlier story, “A Small Price to […]

Operation Deep Sleep: Errata

For any additional corrections to Operation Deep Sleep that might have been made since this post was published, click here. A few mistakes made it past play-testing and into Midnight Legion, Book One: Operation Deep Sleep.  Here are some important corrections. Section 270 (page 88): “Exit the elevator” should link to section 390. Section 287 […]

Review: Easy Roller Dice

Last week, Easy Roller Dice Co. sent me a package of dice to review.  Evidently they overestimated the popularity of my website.  To date I’ve reviewed plenty of books, music, and an eclectic mix of what I suppose you could call Places I Think People Should Visit, but gaming accessories weren’t on the list.  However, […]

Midnight Legion boxed set introduced at GEN CON

Here are images of the contents of the Midnight Legion boxed set, introduced last weekend at the Studio 9 booth at GEN CON:

MNL and Dover Comic Con

The good news: I will still be at Dover Comic Con on August 6 (booth 35!).  The bad news: Midnight Legion Book 1, Operation Deep Sleep will not be.  The printer accidentally sent the boxes to Europe, and they’re still in transit.  They’re expediting some copies, but those will have to go to Kickstarter backers […]
