The Book Of Lost Doors Series
Note: My novels are exclusively on Amazon, for a number of reasons. Unfortunately, that means that you can only buy the e-books in .mobi (Kindle compatible) format. Readers who use devices that require a .epub format (Nook and Kobo) won’t be able to buy them. This is not fair, and so I have a standing offer–if you want any or all of The Book Of Lost Doors in an .epub file, send me an e-mail requesting one, and I’ll send it to you as an attachment. You get the book, and I get to stay in Amazon’s KDP. Everybody wins.
James Ozryck has a monster in his head.
All of his life the entity that he calls Catskinner has made him a fugitive, afraid to get too close to anyone, afraid to stay in one place for too long. Catskinner kills, without compassion and without warning, and is very good at it.
Now James has learned that Catskinner is not the only monster in the world, a world that has suddenly become a far stranger and more dangerous place than he imagined. In order to survive he will have to become something more than a monster, he will have to learn what it means to be human.
Cannibal Hearts: Cannibal Hearts is the sequel to Misha Burnett’s first novel, Catskinner’s Book.
A year ago James Ozryck was a loner, forced to keep the world at bay by the alien entity he calls Catskinner who shares his body. Now he has found a community of others whose lives have been changed by the Outsiders.
Along with Godiva, his half-human lover, James runs a property management company that serves as a front company for Outsider activities.
When the pair’s mysterious boss, Agony Delapour suddenly shows up in town with a new project, however, things gets dangerous fast as events unfold that threaten the life that they have made.
The kidnapper, who calls herself “The Orchid” has an army of followers, both human and otherwise, and information that suggests a traitor within Agony’s organization.
James has Catskinner.
Gingerbread Wolves: The fourth volume of The Book Of Lost Doors pits Outsider modified humanity against the Outsiders themselves as Agony Delapour vows to make war against deep heaven.
James is caught in the middle, between those he loves and the alien madness of the old gods, with the future of the human race hanging in the balance. His fragile community must risk everything to prevent the Outsiders from triggering a nova event—a collision of universes that would end all life on Earth.
Agony says that she has a plan, and that even gods can die.
But, as usual in James’ world, nothing is exactly what it seems.

Utopia Pending: Forget global warming, nuclear proliferation and mass starvation. Forget the doomsayers. The future is (almost) here – and it’s just great! The human race has created Utopia, and if everything’s not perfect, it soon will be.
Or will it? Twelve speculative fiction authors have created twelve wildly different visions of what our Utopian future looks like, and how we got there. From space-age to the return of the wild, from virtual reality to endless summer, from a software-powered paradise to a world without any power at all.
A blind spaceship pilot.
Cops and maintenance personnel in wheelchairs.
Taking on bad guys with only one leg or no arms.
It’s not what you are that makes you something special. It’s who you choose to be.
Seventeen stories about people who rise above anything that tries to stop them, even their own limitations.
A land where the sweat you shed makes a place yours, whatever lines the government draws on a map; where everyone knows putting on a badge doesn’t make a sheriff better than everyone else; where the divide between legend and reality isn’t always where it seems.From aging settlers who miss the days when the town only had one street to decent folk who become gunslingers, from lawmen who find the solidity of the railroad is no protection from the devil to practical men who discover some monsters are more than heathen superstition, these nine tales will show you the West that was, that might have been, and might be again.
