Magic Ex Libris #2: Codex Born
Five hundred years ago, Johannes Gutenberg discovered the art of libriomancy, allowing him to reach into books to create things from their pages. Gutenberg's power brought him many enemies, and some of those enemies have waited centuries for revenge. When a wendigo is brutally slaughtered in a long-established werewolf territory, libriomancer Isaac Vainio is called in to investigate, along with Porter psychiatrist Nidhi Shah, and their dryad bodyguard and lover, Lena Greenwood. Born decades ago from the pages of a pulp fantasy novel, Lena was created to be the ultimate fantasy woman, strong and deadly, but shaped by the needs and desires of her companions. Her powers are unique, and Gutenberg's enemies hope to use those powers for themselves. But their plan could unleash a far darker evil.

The Outsorcerer's Apprentice
An army of goblins, or the Big Bad Wolf, or a professional dragon slayer. Who cares about their intolerable working conditions, lack of adequate health insurance, and terrible coffee in the canteen? With access to a diverse workforce and limitless resources, maximizing revenue has never been an issue for The Wizard. But his business model - based on sound fiscal planning, entrepreneurial flair, and only one or two of the infinite parallel worlds that make up our universe - is about to be disrupted by a young man not entirely aware of what's going on. There's also a slight risk that the fabric of reality will be torn to shreds.

Votan and Other Novels: Votan / All the Gold in Ireland / Men Went to Cattraeth
Votan: 2nd century CE: Greek nobleman Photinus is living in Germany while carrying on an affair with a military man's wife. When discovered, he takes an emergency business trip to save his life and packs among his belongings certain items that lead people to think him a Norse god. Forced to stay one step ahead of his lover's jealous husband, Photinus must juggle the severity of his situation with the enjoyment of being a god.

Not for All the Gold in Ireland: His cousin Philebus played the game of the pea and the three cups. Now, reluctantly, Photinus has to go to the most remote corner of the Roman Empire (Britain) in hope of recovering the Deed of Monopoly to the gold of Ireland.

Men Went to Cattraeth: Dark Ages Britain: Aneirin, one of the few Britons to survive a battle, tells the dark tale of how he and his comrades rode to war against the Angles of Northumbria, and ultimately to their deaths.
