The Complete Bibliography/Reading Order (Updated May 15th, 2021)

Because my stories have gotten a bit spread out, here is a complete list of my stories in each setting. I’ve broken them into “Main Series” books and “Sidequests.” Each is listed in the recommended reading order. In all cases, it is best to read the main series books first, in order. You can either save the sidequests for after, or read them in the recommended position among the series where indicated. When not available separately, the books containing each are listed.

For those looking for the quick, easy answer, the best places to start with my writing are the series starters, most of which are free.  

The Book of Deacon
Bypass Gemini
Free-Wrench
A Traitor in the Shadows

Short stories outside the main narrative arc are denoted by an asterisk (*)

Big Sigma

Big Sigma is my sci-fi series. Lots of space ships, lots of action. Snarky AI, and an adorable little stinker named Squee.

Free-Wrench

Free-Wrench is my take on Steampunk. Nita Graus, Cap’n Mack, and the Wind Breaker crew have high-flying, airship adventures in a world largely submerged in a toxic haze called “The Fug.”

    • A prequel short featuring the backstory of Wink, the ship’s inspector.

The Other Eight

Super heroes exist, but their powers are pretty lackluster. This is the story of the government’s attempt to assemble a team of them and accidentally ending up with a farcical reality show.

    • A short followup illustrating what mediocre superheroes do while they’re not fighting crime.
