The Lost Star's Sea: The Lost Star Stories Volume Two (Volume 2)
The adventures and misadventures of Captain Wil Litang continue in this second and concluding volume of The Lost Star. Litang finds himself shipwrecked along with his nemesis, the St Bleyth assassin, Naylea Cin in the Archipelago of the Tenth Star. And that is only the desperate beginning of his adventures as he strives to stay alive and build a new life among the floating islands of the Archipelago. Along the way he must survive storms, pirates, bandits, dragons and the Dragon Kings themselves as he makes his way through the floating islands in the atmospheric ocean of the Nine Star Nebula's fabled, Tenth Star – the Lost Star. Like the Bright Black Sea, the Lost Star's Sea takes the classic first cousin of space operas, the planetary romance. and reinvents it as a long, episodic, character-driven novel of adventure and discovery. Join Wil Litang on his journey through the islands of the Pela. Share the danger, romance, humor, mystery, and good companions he discovers along his way.

The Bright Black Sea: The Lost Star Stories Volume One (Volume 1)
Wil Litang, first mate of the tramp freighter Lost Star, reluctantly accepts the job as acting captain for a voyage, replacing the dying Captain Miccall. Unknown to him, the Lost Star has a mysterious and dangerous past. A past that has caught up with it. Haunted by this deadly past and driven by economic necessity, Litang and the crew of the Lost Star must venture far from their comfortable orbit – out into the lawless asteroid drifts of the Nine Star Nebula. The Bright Black Sea is not your typical space opera. While it has space battles, it's not military SF. And while it's a tale full of mystery and danger, star empires are not falling and the fate of the galaxy is not hanging in the balance. Rather, The Bright Black Sea is a lighthearted, character-focused adventure novel. Set in a small nebula of nine stars, hundreds of planets and vast lawless asteroid belts, it takes classic space opera motifs – space pirates, sentient robots, and rockets – and incorporates them into a rich, episodic adventure. For mystery, danger, and romance, join Captain Wil Litang and the crew of the Lost Star as they sail the black and bright space of the Nine Star Nebula in this first volume of the Lost Star Stories. The adventures and misadventures of Wil Litang continue in volume two of the Lost Star Stories – The Lost Star's Sea, which takes as its model the planetary romance, the type of story made famous by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and fondly reinvents the classic story of a stranger stranded in a strange land for the 21st century

A Summer in Amber
A young physicist is dispatched to a remote Scottish estate to secretly decipher the fragments of a manuscript that may hold the key to restoring the solar storm ravaged 21st century. Once there he finds whispers of a reincarnated wizard, strange forces linked to an eerie laboratory said to be a gate to the Otherworld, and a girl. A classic science fiction novel of adventure and romance. A Summer in Amber might be described as a "mirror image" steampunk novel. Instead of 21st century technology in a 19th century society, Edwardian technology had been adopted by a post-apocalyptic, late 21st century one, making for an out of the ordinary steampunk story. There are, for example, no zombies. Morlocks, yes, but no zombies, nor airships and air pirates. The story's steampunkness comes from a mix of Edwardian and 21st century technology and from its old-fashioned narrative style – a reflection of my fondness for the Scottish stories of John Buchan, and Compton Mackenzie.
