My Fiction Works
My fiction writings include short stories, novels, a children's book, and "sorta-poetry." A couple pieces of "sorta-poetry" have been turned into song lyrics by those with more musical talent than I could ever hope for, but no, you haven't heard them on the radio. I do not currently have plans to post entire novels here, but I do have some short stories online.
- Tea Leaf Technology (science fiction), also available as a PDF download: Tea_Leaf_Technology.pdf
- Tramp Avatar (fantasy, but not the dragons & unicorns kind), also available as a PDF download: Tramp_Avatar.pdf
- Kallmarn's Quest (very short, fantasy, and a brief introduction to D20 gaming)
The first two stories listed above are also included in Journey to Yandol, and other stories.
Fiction Books Other Than Novels and Novellas
- Two Boys, Two Planets, an early-reader children's book about space exploration.
- Journey to Yandol, and other stories, a small collection of short stories that can mostly be classified as science fiction.
- Wolf Block, a science fiction novelette.
- No Fanfare, a science fiction short story.
Look for those books on your favorite e-book retailer site.
Novels & Novellas
The following is a quick run-down of where I am in my novel writing. Unpublished books are numbered instead of being listed by titles, because titles would be subject to change anyway.
