Standalone Novels


Although I frequently writing arc-driven stories that span several books, and I love revisiting the characters in those worlds time and again, there’s something delightful about tales that stand on their own. These books each represent flights of fancy into places wild, dark, funny, and stranger than anything you’ll find in The Clarke Lantham Mysteries or The Antithesis Progression.

The Resurrection Junket

The author of Down From Ten and The Antithesis Progression brings you a future unlike anything you’ve seen before.

“…a gut-twisting adventure I couldn’t put down.” –Nathan Lowell, author of Trader’s Tales

Death begins at home…
The Milky Way. Sixty thousand light years across. A hundred billion planets to explore. Most of them out of reach, even of the Mannix-Alcubierre Warp Drive. In 2235, Earth’s few well-worn neighbors brim with colonists and terraformers. Humanity now faces the final limits of its growth.
When Chan Xiyi Aya’s dream of life beyond the rim lands her in hot water with the Foundation who employs her, she gets her shot at the job she’s aching for: chronicling the history of a planet she’d kill to protect, three hundred light years beyond the rim of human space.
The catch?
Only the dead can go.

Ideas, Inc.

The author of Suave Rob’s Double-X Derring-Do brings you a farce of the tradition of P.G. Wodehouse and Douglas Adams.

Best friends Caleb and Lenny hate each other. Stranded in the middle of upstate New York with two flat tires, one spare, no cell reception, and no idea what to do, they figure they’re pretty much screwed. Fortunately, they broke down right in front of a place that deals in ideas. For the special one-time fire-sale price of seventeen bucks, they can get a pack of seven completely original, brand-new, ultra-premium, never-before-used ideas. But will it get them out of trouble before they’re forced to talk to each other again?

Find out in this hilarious all-night adventure yarn that reveals the terrible truth behind the worldwide pigeon cabal!

Down From Ten

Spine-tingling claustrophobia from the author of The Antithesis Progression.

You can make the whole world end, if you just count down from ten…

They shared a dream of a haven. A place of beauty and freedom. Eight friends gathered in a mountain chalet removed from the grief and wreckage of their lives.

Now, trapped thirty feet beneath the snow, huddled together waiting for rescue, they hear the voices in the dark. They see the scratches on the walls. And every night they share a new vision of memories, and shadows, and a mysterious power reaching in for them from the cold outside. When the darkness comes, can their friendship survive the power of their dreams?

A chilling, heart-warming tale of lust and love, laughter and loyalty, triumph and terror that will keep you guessing until the last possible moment.

“…a brilliant, sometimes creepy take on a bohemian cozy…irrepressibly touching…”–Gail Carriger, New York Times Bestselling author of The Parasol Protectorate
