Where the Humans Went is the final volume of the Inner Islands Trilogy, in which we find out what the humans did to make the creatures of Earth intelligent, and where they have gone since. Anforth the raccoon and his friends Flutesam the otter, Crow the crow, and Ru-Shi the raccoon face danger beneath the sea and above the sky! (Available world-wide via Amazon.)
Our latest is a collection of experimental short stories, When Birnam Wood. Each story is exactly 1600 words long and divided into four precisely 400 word segments that roughly follow the 3.5-act structure of a screenplay: Act I sets up the action, Act IIa explores this strange new world, and in Act IIb exploration turns to opposition as new information reveals danger, excitement, and fun… which is finally resolved in Act III. There’s action, adventure, strangeness, romance and more!

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and Ham is a re-imagining of one of the strangest Arthurian romances for the modern day. Rollicking, ribald, and other things starting with “R”, it’s a fun, serious, goofy, and profound miscellany that includes vignettes ranging from Chaucerian to Tolkeinesque, and maybe even a little rock’n’roll. (Available world-wide via Amazon.)
