Storytelling is about worlds. And today, the concept of a "world" increasingly transcends what is presented in any single book, or any single film, or any single game. Now, a fictional world is often a multi-media alternate reality: another place and time that a reader can step into, and in so doing, take a vacation from this one. And if I'm doing my job correctly, that's what you'll experience as you visit the worlds you can access through the "gateways" on this site..

Aethers of Mars was released in May 2014.
It is 1903 and Cecil Rhodes is the most powerful man in the solar system. He controls a growing fleet of airships and aetherships, all designed after the first few that he used to wipe out the Boers to a Man, and sink three of her Majesty’s ships when they refused “the lawful orders” of the Black Parliament. With new colonies on Mars and Venus, patrolled by the Mourning-liveried Blackcoats , the vengeful hand of the Empire has become hard in the wake of Victoria’s assassination. Those same hard hands squeeze labor, royalists, and the Irish relentlessly, searching for the moral softness of decaying loyalty, of treasonous rot.    more
