The Cityborn: Prologue and First Two Chapters
Releasing July 4, 2017 from DAW Books: The metal City, ruled by the First Officer in the name of the semi-mythical Captain, towers at the center of the Heartland and astride the deep Canyon. Within its corroding walls, Officers dwell in luxury on the Twelfth Tier while the poor struggle on the First and Second, and outcasts scrabble for survival in the Middens, the City’s rubbish heap, filling the Canyon beneath its dripping underbelly. When Alania, an Officer’s ward, fleeing for her life, drops into the Middens and is rescued by the young scavenger Danyl, they find themselves pursued for reasons they cannot fathom. The secrets they unlock as they fight to escape will determine not only their fate, but the fate of the City…and everyone who lives there.
A complete short story, originally published in The Book of Dark Wisdom. When winter's wind scours the prairie, even deeply buried secrets are laid bare.
Andy Nebula: Interstellar Rock Star
After a lifetime of sleeping in alleys and flop houses, Kit’s musical talent is discovered, and he is remade into Andy Nebula.
Well-fed, content with a warm bed and contract, Andy begins to wonder why every previous “Sensation Single” star was a flash-in-the-pan. Little does he know that the answer lies with the off-world Hydras and their taste for music and flash, a drug forbidden to humans. And that he is their next fix.
“The action in Andy Nebula moves along at a cracking pace and the characters are well-drawn…Andy Nebula is fast and furious enough to keep even reluctant readers turning the pages, and young teen fans of fantasy and science fiction will not be disappointed.” – John Wilson, Quill & Quire
