Patreon Books

I will be adding new material here on a semi-regular basis.
These files can be read on Kindle or on your phone/PC using the free Kindle app.
The process for getting them on your Kindle is well documented online. It's pretty easy by all accounts.

If you like the books/stories, don't forget to give them some stars on Goodreads!

Gunlaw - a weird western (goodreads link)

A complete fantasy book. Written during the publication of The Broken Empire, so around 2012. My agent felt it was too large a departure from the trilogy that had brought me to the readers' attention. So I wrote Prince of Fools afterwards rather than a followup to this one.

Technically ... a weird western. Gunslingers, hex witches, dogmen, minotaur, trains that run further than you can imagine ... 

Mikeos Jones is a gunslinger, faster than thinking, part of the gunlaw, a man who can seldom afford the luxury of looking past the end of any given day.

Jenna Crossard is a hex-witch, but her ambitions are larger than spells and charms - the need to understand the world consumes her. They say the gunlaw keeps men safe from the endless horror of the sect, but to Jenna it's a cage and she wants out.  If that means breaking open the world and killing a few gods ... so be it.

Blood of the Red - a more traditional fantasy (goodreads link)

The fantasy novel I wrote before Prince of Thorns. 
      It's 20 years old now! But I had a good time writing it and I think it's a fun read.

Darker Tide - horror with strong SFF (goodreads link)

A lot of my stuff strays towards horror. I wrote this after I'd finished Book of the Ancestor.
A quick read - very definitely at the shortest end of the book scale.
This was written to demonstrate a proposed video game mechanism, and as such focuses on the idea and on action. But I hope it's also a fun, potentially unnerving read!
It's set in the 80s (like my Impossible Times trilogy) and has lashings of SFF content. Currently my highest rated book - because so few people have read it!

The Devil You Know - three short stories

These three stories are bundled together for arcane reasons concerning Amazon's royalties structure - they are not connected. The stories are:
The Devil You Know - A Book of the Ancestor short story that has never appeared before. It's set immediately after the end of book 1, Red Sister.
The Hero of Aral Pass - A Red Queen's War short story that sheds more light on the events in Aral Pass that made Jalan Kendeth into a hero. Primarily focused on events before book 1, Prince of Fools, but the framing story is set after the trilogy concludes. This story first appeared in the anthology Art of War.
A Thousand Years - A Red Queen's War story that concerns Snorri and Tuttugu when they were just starting out as young warriors. The events happened ~20 years before the start of book 1, Prince of Fools. This story first appeared in the anthology Unfettered III.
