Published more or less randomly, when things are ready.

The Battle of Tycho Under


We join once again our favorite computerman, John Riche, this time still a mere apprentice. Taking part in the first major space battle in twenty years, this story packs tension, action, and physically-accurate space combat tactics. The sci-fi fans out there should really enjoy this one.


A standalone short story

A rather cerebral, horror-like tale, in the vein of Alone. Rather than using the existential dread to make a philosophical point, however, this story explores the meaning of a young man being horribly tortured, and what enables him to remain truly himself, and truly free, throughout it.



An old-style, sci-fi romp, when a first-person narrator encounters a problem in deep space. Don't look for deep meaning here; this one is just fun, pure and simple. Part of a series, the Guildsmen, which has a few stories written and material for many more.


A standalone short story

A very, very short story regarding an average person forced to make a very impactful choice. Explores the nature of our choices, as well as revisits Tolkien's common theme of the most ordinary of people being capable of the most extraordinary of choices.


A standalone short story

Sort of a combination of horror and philosophical fiction, this short story delves into and dwells upon the nightmare that is an immortal soul without supernatural redemption. The reader will notice that the main character is without the consolation of religion; this factor is by design. Only Christianity can really resolve the conundrum of the philosophical certainty of the immortality of the soul combined with the problem of evil. Our main character's depression, then, is reasonable—and horrifying.
