(Prohibition Orcs 1)
The modern year of 1927, and orcs still have to fight elven asshole bullshit.
Prohibition left exceptions for the church of Men, the Elvish sacraments, even the Dwarfish rituals. But the elves in Congress insist that orcs have no sacraments.
Without the Orcish draught, without the rites, Uruk-Tai’s fine strong boys might grow tall. They might earn respect.
But they will never be Orcs.
And Uruk will not let that happen…
(Prohibition Orcs 2)
In 1927 Detroit, orcs have no friends. But they get the best enemies.
Uruk-Tai wants a peaceful night in the orc speakeasy. Instead, he gets an intrusive human, family fights, looming threats…
To orcs, opportunity looks a lot like certain death.
But the rewards might change everything…
Give him trouble, he knocks your teeth in.
But a valley that appears and disappears, impossibly rich raspberries, and a sorcerous Fairy woman ensnare him before he realizes it.
Freedom means death. Living costs his soul.
But Dervish always makes his own rules…
Snatched from the tunnels beneath his war-shattered homeland, Aleksander has everything he could want. The kind and generous people of the amazing New York City gave him a home. A job. A new leg. Teeth. Even a face.
He lives the perfect life—until bombs explode in the glass skyscrapers.
The fine people of New York don’t understand war.
But Aleksander and his secret Family do…
These stories aren’t quite horror, but aren’t shiny happy fantasy either.
Five stories that will drill their way into you. A man trapped on a rock amid the ocean: no food, no water, and a zombie. A hospital janitor plagued by a dog’s murderous ghost. An addict unable to score, unable to survive without a hit. A young girl learns she’s a werewolf. The hard way. An adult survivor of child abuse whose inner nightmares come real, and take the whole world with them.

When their family dies in the opening days of the next civil war, brothers Kyle and Jimmy join the loyalists. A raid against the rebels succeeds, but traps them between enemy troops.
But Jimmy knows things nobody should know. Horrible things.
Knowledge that can save them all, or destroy everything.
Matthew Keith barely controls his anger over the brutality he witnesses as an emergency room housekeeper. When a murderous spirit attaches itself to Matt and slaughters those who anger him, Matt must fight an intangible enemy that acts on his own worst impulses.
Nobody deserves to die. Except when they do.
A hundred-foot barren rock in the middle of the ocean.
A plane wreck.
One dead man.
But the dead man keeps moving.
Stop moving? He’ll eat you.
Sleep too long? He’ll eat you.
The only thing tougher than living with a zombie? Surviving without one.
Opening the Eye
Street drug drought.
Mindless need chews your bones. No way to feed it.
An unthinkable solution to satisfy the hunger. Forever. If you can live that way.
Breaking the Circle
