Freyaverse #2: Neptune's Brood
Set in the Saturn's Children universe. The human species is extinct - for the fourth time - due to its fragile nature. A metahuman descended from the robots that once served humanity, Krina is traveling to a water-world to find her sister. They each possess half of the Atlantis Carnet, a financial instrument capable of bringing down entire civilizations. But a body-double assassin is stalking Krina across the galaxy, ready to take the Carnet once it is whole - and leave no witnesses alive.

Children of the Drought #1: One Night in Sixes
Elim has heard stories about what wakes at sunset in the border town of Sixes: gunslingers and shapeshifters and ancient animal gods. Elim's so-called partner, lily-white lordling Sil Halfwick, has disappeared inside, hell-bent on making a name for himself among the black-market traders. Elim's worldly station is written in the bastard browns and whites of his cow-spotted face. He'd better find his missing partner fast, because he dare not return home without him. But if he's caught out after dark, Elim risks succumbing to the old and sinister truth in his own flesh - and discovering just how far he'll go to survive the night.
