Agent G: Saboteur and Lucifer’s Nebula now available!

I’m pleased to say I’ve got two new releases. These are the sequels to my extremely popular AGENT G: INFILTRATOR and LUCIFER’S STAR novels. Both novels are some of my best work and I hope their sequels, AGENT G: SABOTUR and LUCIFER’S NEBULA are every bit as enjoyable as well as enlightening.



Agent G has left the service of the International Refugee Society, the world’s biggest provider of murder for hire, in order to work for the United States government. Unfortunately, they are sending him after his former employers and they know him as well as he knows them. The clock is ticking, though, until the Society’s remaining leadership starts eliminating their opponents and attempts to seize control of the Presidency. A traitor is also providing them with all the information they need to survive until their puppet is in power. Will G and his allies survive the purge?

Sometimes, it doesn’t pay to be a cyborg spy.

From the bestselling author of The Rules of Supervillainy: Captain Cassius Mass can only run so far from his problems and the galaxy isn’t big enough to hide from those pursuing him. Cassius soon finds himself blackmailed into a mission that will clear him of all charges as well as protect him from future persecution: bring an end to the civil war currently racking the galaxy. Accompanied by a new set of untrustworthy allies, the crew of the Melampus, and the A.I duplicate of his dead wife—Cassius needs to figure out how to not only deal with his target but also his employers.

Because the entire universe is at stake.

Hey folks,

When you’re commissioning new art for your books, it’s sometimes better to buy in bulk or you can potentially get caught with your pants down. The artist for The Bright Falls Mysteries, Lucifer’s Star, and Wraith Knight (Alex Raspad) has retired for instance. Thankfully, at least Lucifer’s Star has all of its covers taken care of!

I thought I’d share some of my upcoming works’ art, though, which gives you something of a sense of what’s in the pipeline.


I’ve finished the manuscripts for AGENT G: SABOTEUR and AGENT G: ASSASSIN which will be coming out this December and hopefully this February. Audiobooks are planned for both with Jeffrey Kafer. As you can see by the art, though, I have at least two more books planned for this series and possibly more.

Agent G is the story of a sci-fi cyberpunk assassin who had his memory wiped by his employers. A cyborg hitman, he’s developed far more free will than they’re comfortable with. What happens next? Well, you’ll have to read to find out. Will all five books be available at the end of 2018? I certainly hope so!

Agent G - New Covers - Draft

Cyberpunk Wars

This is a collaboration of mine and only the first book is to be expected late 2018 (so the other two are being posted prematurely) but I’m excited for a spin-off series from my AGENT G books, set twenty years after the first of them. The Cyberpunk Wars follows Colleen Patrick and her Runner associates as they deal with the corporate warfare which dominates the devastated technologically advanced but war-torn 2040s. These will be written with my favorite collaborator Michael Suttkus (Lucifer’s Star and The Bright Falls Mysteries)!


Cyberpunk Wars - DRAFTs

Eldritch Ops.

ESOTERRORISM was the first book I ever published but it was delayed for over two years due to company politics then got caught up in a kerfuffle that forced me to move onto other projects. Now, thankfully, the series is in the hands of Amber Cove publishing and it’ll be possible to release the sequel.

Eldritch Ops. picks up a year after Derek Hawthorne has found himself as one of the most powerful men in the House. Unfortunately, his position means he has to stomach daily corruption and evil to keep the organization’s power intact. After intervening one too many times to the right thing, he’s sent on an impossible task: to make peace with the Vampire Nation. Instead, he finds out he may be the powder keg that starts a war to save humanity.

Lucifer’s Nebula

The long awaited sequel to LUCIFER’S STAR will be available this Winter and is almost ready now. I’m particularly proud of this one as Cassius Mass is one of my all-time favorite creations. This novel picks up a year into the Insurgency led by his clone and Cassius’ misguided attempts to stay out of the war finally backfiring. 

 The Tournament of Supervillainy

THE TOURNAMENT OF SUPERVILLAINY is the 5th volume of the series and a novel which will be subject to a retool as it’s going to be twice the size of previous volumes. Gary Karkofsky a.k.a Merciless: The Supervillain without Mercy has come to one inescapable conclusion: being a supervillain sucks.

Unfortunately, the world needs a villain more than ever as the time-bending god Entropicus has begun a tournament across the Multiverse to determine who will wield the power of the Primals and rule the universe forever. Gary certainly couldn’t say NO, could he? Guest starring Agent G, Cassius Mass, and Jane Doe! Plus appearances by a huge number of other characters you may recognize like Cal Stringel and the Shadow Master!

Wraith Lord 

See the same situation with Esoterrorism but benefiting from the help of Amber Cove! What is the world’s only decent undead abomination turned demigod doing to make his tyrannical Good-ruled world a better place? Well, it turns out trying to take over the world’s largest city as the start of an invasion!

He has reasons, though!

Check them out as they come out!

Agent G and Esoterrorism news for Black Friday

Happy Black Friday, folks!

The first bit of good news is Amber Cove is having a HUGE sale on their books from November 24th to Monday 27th! Numerous novels of theirs are going to be available, free of charge, on Amazon Kindle including Agent G: Infiltrator!

“Black Technology has made murder a billion dollar industry.”

The International Refugee Society has twenty-six cybernetically enhanced “Letters,” and for the right price, they’ll eliminate anyone. They’ve given up their families and their memories for ten years of service with the promise of a life of luxury awaiting them.

Agent G is one of these “Letters,” but clues to his past are starting to emerge while he’s on a dangerous mission to infiltrate the Society’s most dangerous competitor. In the midst of all the violence, subterfuge, and deceit, he’ll need to keep his wits about him and trust sparingly.

After all if an organization will kill for money, what would they do to keep the truth hidden?

Agent G is my “pre-cyberpunk” novel about a cyborg assassin which I consider to be one of my favorite works. It’s sequel, Agent G: Saboteur, is coming out at the end of the year and I hope everyone will pick up a copy of this book so they can enjoy the latter. Take note the audiobook costs $2 on Audible if you pick up the free ebook first.

Other books I suggest you pick up from Amber Cove’s Thanksgiving Day sale are Prime Suspects: A Clone Detective Mystery by Jim Bernheimer, Technomancer: To Beat the Devil by Michael Gibson, and Villains Rule by Michael Gibson. All free of charge!

There is another bit of great news for this Turkey Day and that is the re-release of Esoterrorism! Esoterrorism was my first novel and remains a favorite with readers. While the kerfluffle with Ragnarok remains a sore subject, I’m very pleased Amber Cove has decided to pick up the slack with my urban fantasy spy novel. They’ve also lowered the price to 3.99, which is something I hope will entice new readers to pick it up. The sequel, Eldritch Ops, is going to be released around the same time as Agent G’s sequel.

There are no good guys in the world of shadows…but maybe some bad men are better than others.

Derek Hawthorne was born to be an agent of the Red Room. Literally. Raised in a conspiracy that has protected the world from the supernatural for centuries, he’s never been anything other than a servant of their agenda. Times are changing, though, and it may not be long before their existence is exposed.

When a routine mission uncovers the latest plan of magical terrorist the Wazir, Derek finds himself saddled with a new partner. Who is the mysterious but deadly Shannon O’Reilly? What is her agenda? Couple this with the discovery that the Red Room has a mole seeking to frame Derek for treason and you have a plot that might bring down a millennium-old organization. Can he stop the Wazir’s mission to expose the supernatural? And should he?

Pick up your copies today! Or at least Agent G since the price is right there for anyone.

Winter of 2017 Writing Update

Hey folks,

I’ve been working hard on numerous books and trying to decide what I’m going to do next. So, I decided I would share what is going to be coming out for the finale of Winter. These works are something I’m quite proud of and will be hopefully out soon and in your hands as readers. Note: These release dates are all subjective but should be pretty accurate.

November 2017


The sequel to Agent G picks up a year after the first novel with our antihero cybernetic assassin now working for the United States government. So much better than being a private contractor, right? Wrong. Hunting down his former associates only makes things worse and he soon finds himself discovering even more dirt about his convoluted past. What is an amnesiac cyborg to do?

LUCIFER’S NEBULA (Lucifer’s Star #2)

Cassius Mass wants nothing more than to bury his past as the former best pilot of the fascist Crius Archduchy. Unfortunately, there’s nowhere far enough he can run to reshape the Commonwealth’s Watchers. Dragooned once more into their surface, he is given his most dangerous assignment yet: deliver a peace agreement to the Free Systems Alliance that has successfully driven the Spiral’s government to its knees. Unfortunately, victory isn’t enough for the organization and Cassius finds out some of his most trusted friends aren’t on his side.

December 2017

WRAITH LORD (Wraith Lord #2)

The follow up to the 2016 book WRAITH KNIGHT (which has recently been updated and revised). Wraith Lord follows Jacob Riverson, the last Wraith Knight, as he adjusts to being the Dark Lord of the Northern Wasteland. Surrounded by wealth, splendor, and two loving but devious brides–he should have known it was too good to last. The Empire is preparing a war to unite its disparate factions by annihilating all the Shadownborn races as well as their leader.

ESOTERRORISM (Red Room 1# – re-release)

This, like Wraith Knight, is a re-edit and release of the one put out by Ragnarok Publications. The adventures of Derek Hawthorne and his partner Shannon shall be shared once more by Amber Cove Press. Derek Hawthorne is the best agent working for the House, a global conspiracy which protects the existence of the supernatural from the public, but he’s about to find himself under suspicion for the greatest leak they’ve ever had. Is it a diversion for something far worse?

January 2018


The fifth Gary Karkofsky a.k.a Merciless: The Supervillain without MercyTM novel. Gary has successfully freed the world’s supervillain population and overthrown the tyrannical regime of Merciful. Unfortunately, this means everyone hates him as he’s too good for the bad guys and too bad for the good. Sick of his lack of respect, Gary decides it might be time to hang his cape up–only to be invited to a cross-dimensional fighting tournament for the fate of the Multiverse! The winner gets a wish that will allow Gary to rule the entire cosmos–or at least his solar system. Guest starring the protagonists of I was a Teenage Weredeer and Lucifer’s Star!
