I have decided to make The Invisible City, first volume in The Stolen Future trilogy, available at a great discount: free. (You can find it here and here.) That is 120,000 words of swashbuckling planetary romance, suitable for all ages, for the price of clicking a button.

Several years ago, I found an old manuscript in an attic. It told the story of my several-times-removed uncle Charles Clee, a lieutenant serving on the front lines in France in World War I. In escaping an enemy ambush, he finds himself an unwitting traveler–through time. Catapulted 800,000 years into the future, he discovers a very different Earth, where an alien race dominates humankind, the mutated products of 800 millennia of scientific experiments roam the landscape, and strange and dangerous sights await the unwary traveler.

Struggling to survive, Clee learns that a time machine may exist which could send him back to his own era, where he represents the only hope of rescue for the men of his command. But to do so would mean abandoning the people of the future, for whom he may represent their only chance for freedom.

Rescue the past, or save the future? Either way, he will lose.

Cirsova #2 is now out, featuring my short story about the little-known supernatural arena of the American Revolution, “Hoskins’ War.” The enemy of your enemy is your friend, but when a colonial guerrilla warrior witnesses an attack by uncanny creatures upon a British column, he realizes that some wars transcend politics and geography and that if this massacre is left unanswered, there soon may be no one left to fight over whether America deserves its freedom.

I can also announce that “Foundering Fathers” is now available as part of the anthology Singular Irregularity. In a complete coincidence, it too examines the underpinnings of a pivotal event in America’s fight for liberty–albeit in a more lighthearted vein. When time-traveling Barclay Webster accidentally leaves Paul Revere senseless just before he is to make his legendary ride, who but Barclay will be there to rescue history? And when plans go awry, who but Soames, the inestimable valet, will be there to rescue Barclay?

And finally, Once a Knight, A Tale of the Daze of Chivalry, has been made available for free on Amazon for a very limited time. Fantasy Faction called Once a Knight, “cleverly written. … [A] pun in every paragraph and a smile in every sentence.” If you love Monty Python and the Holy Grail, or the films of Mel Brooks, this book belongs in your library.
