To celebrate the end of summer (wait, does anyone ever celebrate the end of summer?), I’ve put all of my Stolen Future and Nemesis books on sale at $.99 each. That means The Invisible City, The Secret City, and The Cosmic City, as well as The Choking Rain, The Scent of Death, and The Killing Scar. Each one $.99! That’s three books for the price of one!

Whether you’re looking for classic science fiction adventure or two-fisted pulp action from the 1930s, this is your chance to pick up some great reading at a really great price! I mean, would you rather read this or that Shakespeare guy your English teacher assigned?

The third book in my neo-pulp Nemesis series, The Killing Scar, is now available for purchase on Amazon and Smashwords. (You can start the series with The Choking Rain, for free.)

Set in 1932 Berlin, where the Nazis are literally battling for power, with gunfights in the streets, Eric Reinhold and his crew have come to investigate reports that the mysterious Dr. Scar has built a weapon of great power that could bring a nation to its knees and begin a new world war! But when Dr. Scar’s power proves to be their match, Eric must re-invent himself for a second time, rising from the ashes of his own apparent death to become something more than human.


A legend is about to spread its shadow over evildoers across the globe–the legend of Nemesis.

So I’ve finished The Killing Scar… That’s the third in my renamed “Nemesis” series. I have one more planned, Marauders from the Moon, then I will stop and assess and see where I want to go from there. I’d like to continue the series; it’s fun to write, and I’m really starting to get a feel for the characters (some of whom demonstrate an alarming degree of independence).

After the lightning round that was drafting The Scent of Death (57 days), I had hoped to make equivalent speed with this one and finish by the end of November. But that didn’t happen, and then with the holidays, things dragged. I blame myself, but I won’t schedule another book to end in the fourth quarter, I think.

I have the cover for Scar on order, and the plan is to publish at the end of February. But it needs editing, and proofreading, and I need to start outlining Marauders if I’m to publish that this summer… That would make three books in one year. Life was a lot simpler when it took a year to write one book.

But who ever said simple was fun?

The Choking Rain, my Depression-era pulp adventure novel, is now available in e-book form for the first time at Smashwords.com.

The Choking Rain, first in a planned series, follows former WWI fighter ace Eric Reinhold and four fellow adventurers as they fight to find the answer to The Invisible Death, a phantom killer stalking the streets of Los Angeles in the winter of 1932, just months before the Olympic Games are meant to give hope to a beaten-down American public. But if the killings aren’t stopped, the Games will be cancelled, a major propaganda blow to the growing influence of the United States. With the authorities helpless, panic mounting, and the murderous scourge seeming to focus on his own family, Reinhold has to take the law into his own hands, even if it means defying the police, endangering his friends, and returning to fight the war he thought he had left behind–a war which this time, he might very well not survive…

Ranging from the alleyways of Tinseltown to the pathless jungles of South America, featuring gangsters, spies, hidden agendas, unexpected allies, and surprise villains, The Choking Rain is a rousing adventure story in the classic pulp style.
