Released: The Empty House (Lombard Alchemist)

The Lombard Alchemist Tales is a series I’ve been working on for a few years now. Beginning with At The Edge of Nowhere, these stories center around a creepy pawnshop in a gambling town on the edge of a nuclear wasteland, and the artifacts it sells–all of which are more than they seem. Subsequent installments like Chicken Noodle Gravity, Sunday Morning Giraffe, and The Serpent and the Satchel have proven very popular, and over the course of those four stories, I worked out the mythos and history of pawnshop and planned out fifteen more stories.

Now, the first of the new batch is here: The Empty House.

Love is a hunger…

Alan Tosetti set the sterling standard in a town built on silver. The greatest architect in Nevada history, he died before he could finish his masterpiece Craftsman. Two years later, his youngest daughter, died in the same house, sitting in front of the fire, of old age.
She was only twenty-six.
When the tales of Tosetti’s legacy draws a hungry young architect from the big city, he finds a broken-down ruin with a soul full of music, and a chilling secret that can only be unlocked with the help of a demonic pawnshop in the radioactive wastes in a broken-down city at the edge of nowhere.

Now available as an ebook from Smashwords, Amazon, Kobo, Apple, and Scribd.

About the author

After a childhood in academia, J. Daniel Sawyer declared his independence by dropping out of high school and setting off on a series of adventures in the bowels of the film industry, the venture capital culture of silicon valley, surfing safaris, bohemians, burners, historians, theologians, adventurers, climbers, drug dealers, gangbangers, and inventors before his past finally caught up to him.

Trapped in a world bookended by one wall falling in Berlin and other walls going up around suburbia and along national borders throughout the world, he rediscovered his deep love of history and, with it, and obsession with predicting the future as it grew aggressively out of the past.

To date, this obsession has yielded over thirty books and innumerable short stories, the occasional short film, nearly a dozen podcasts stretching over a decade and a half, and a career creating novels and audiobooks exploring the world through the lens of his own peculiar madness, in the depths of his own private forest in a rural exile, where he uses the quiet to write, walk on the beach, and manage a production company that brings innovative stories to the ears of audiences across the world.
