The Sage V'Sal - Area 51 Project - Bayonet Books


And now, for something completely different. 

Yes, the book is about Area 51, and the madness that has gripped social media regarding the "Raid Area 51, They Can't Stop All Of Us" event scheduled for September 20th. 

The Sage V'Sal is my first high fantasy tale, regarding Arazorwyn the Elf King, Slaag the First Spear of the Lizardmen, Lord Brodie, Warrior Primus of the dwarves, and Hrolf of the northern Wulfen. Trust me, yes, it has to do with Area 51.

Stan Kirby is back with his entire team of handlers, and this time, they're crying havoc and letting slip the cats of war 

Gunboat Diplomacy - Seventh Seal Press - January 3


The Pushtal of Vorrhurna were once one of the Mercenary Guild’s 37 races. After a series of disastrous contracts, the tiger-like aliens lost their status as mercenaries and the MinSha seized their homeworld for defaulting on their debt. Eighty years later, the seven Great Clans are but a shadow of their former selves and have resorted to piracy to survive.

For his commissioning mission, Hr’ent Golramm and a small team of bounty hunters must find a way to put a stop to their predations. Not one race or species in the entire Union has figured out how to herd cats – but then again, Hr’ent is a particularly unusual Peacemaker candidate, and may just have to engage in a bit of gunboat diplomacy to get the Pushtal to pay attention, once and for all.
