New novel: THE PILLARS OF HERCULES…steampunk in the ancient world!

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

The rumors are true. I have a fourth novel about to hit bookshelves, under my fantasy/steampunk nom de plume, David Constantine. Slated for release on March 6th by Night Shade Books, THE PILLARS OF HERCULES is steampunk set in the age of Alexander the Great, and features Persian princesses, Gaulish barbarians, Greek mercenaries, as well as a wild and crazy journey to find the magick artifacts lost beneath the waves at Atlantis.  Plus Alexander himself is a major character, along with all the Macedonian generals you know and love:  Ptolemy, Hephaestion, Eumenes, Craterus, and other assorted bad-asses.

Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist has published an excerpt from the book here, and the book also has a website at

So stay tuned.

New short story in the STAR WARS INSIDER: available now!

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

My partner-in-crime Mark S. Williams and I have a new story in the latest issue of Star Wars Insider magazine: MAZE RUN features Han, Chewie, and the Millennium Falcon as they navigate perilously near to a rather large black hole while battling the Imperial department of dirty tricks.

Those among you who have studied my career closely will also note this is actually my FIRST published short story, and I couldn’t be happier to have it be a Star Wars one.
