Free Comics!

Yo, comic books fans! You might remember my review from March of last year about on a fun little graphic novel called Gun Ghoul (available here), produced by Alpha Dog Studios. He’s at it again, and this time he has a little something nice for you.  A couple of...

Lumberlands – A Maple Flavored D&D Supplement

Now this is what I like to see in a D&D product. Lumberlands: Rise of the LeafLords! Not really.  But take a look at the maple-swilling description of this light-hearted product: When you need a break from tromping through ruined castles and braining hobgoblins,  come spend some time in...

Neon Harvest: Cover Reveal

Newsletter subscribers saw this a while ago. Now it’s the rest your turn to take a gander at the cover for my next novel. What if the nineties lasted forever? One man’s search for meaning in the high-contrast heart of a day-glo city goes awry when his client’s wife...

Overlooked A New Release

The early reviews of  Overlook are in, and they are 100% positive: There’s at least one car chase so awesome, it needs a Hans Zimmer soundtrack. Joe has spent his life being forgotten. Not even the IRS comes for his back taxes. He’s a ghost, a perfectly average, perfectly forgettable...

Cyber Monday Book Recommendations (Cheap!)

With thanks to the humble and brilliant king of the airwaves, AetherCzar, allow me to recommend a host of great reads for your digital shopping carts.  There are a lot of works on this list that have been moved from my “sooner or later” pile into my “bought and...

Karl Barber: The Even More Completer Collection

My first professional works were modern day action tales of a long ranger roaming the world and righting the sorts of wrongs that don’t often get righted in our fallen world.  A couple of these stories wound up gracing the pages of StoryHack Magazine and Milhaven’s Tales of Suspense....

Taking a Bear to a Knife Fight

A death match that pits the bitter wisdom of the Big Bear’s X-Brigade against the energetic cunning of Nick the Knife’s Zoomies is just what the Boomers ordered for dessert. Those trying to force a direct confrontation between the two groups are fools and troublemaking drama queens who should...

Hell Spawn: The Sounds of Horror

Anyone want me to read them a scary bedtime story? This ain’t your wine aunt’s urban fantasy. This is pure, distilled, demon-kicking urban fantasy with a direct line to that gorgeous Catholic iconography that makes even the worst Hollywood director want to tap into it. It’s bloody in the...

Just Released: Brand of the Warlock

Rob Kroese won me over with Schrodinger’s Gat, a trippy little jaunt with a lot less cornpone humor and a lot more quantum philosophizing than you’d expect from the title.  Now he moves into the realm of fantasy with the first title in his Counterfeit Wizard series, The Brand...

Heroes Unleashed

That Thomas Plutarch, what a prodigiously productive writer! The latest in the shared-universe series, Heroes Unleashed dropped into the market this week, and it’s a little bit different from the previous fare.  Morgon Newquist’s Heroes Fall and Kai Wai Cheah’s Hollow City took a more traditional and fast paced approach...
