Raven

the Nevergate cycle

I’ve come to think of this family of ten books as a couple of mini-series that together span 5,000 years. More or less.

the

Last Nevergate

chronicles

This six-episode mini-series features a plucky too-lucky Sixteener named Glendyl on a Quest her 249 predecessors failed to survive. The first episode — The Luck of Madonna 13— begins in 2534 in an IsoTown of pacifist vegetarians called St Coriander. It received Book of the Year honors. Twice.

Book One

“Ellison is a new force on the fantasy and science fiction scene. What a story!”

Book Four

“Electrifying and fantastical …
liberally sprinkled with pulse-pounding action, sparkling
humor, wit, and sharp dialogue.”

Book One

“Pure madcap fun … readers will cheer Glix on the whole way. [This is] a winning mix of dystopia, fantasy, and hard SF that’s impossible to put down.”

Book Two

“Original and off-kilter, this is not a regular humorous SF novel with a touch of fantasy around the edges: at its heart, it is a deep exploration of humanity’s resilience in the face of extreme circumstances.”

The Black Door

Travis One-Shoe

A ‘sort of’ prequel to The Last Nevergate Chronicles, this is a free-standing first-person future thriller, complete with ‘adult situations’ and ‘modern language’. The loner hero — Ranger Travis One-Shoe — is a down-on-his-luck ‘security guy’ who gets sucked into a trillion tero scheme to grab the hidden wealth of a dead IsoTown. Unfortunately, bigger dogs are after the same bone…

“… feels like Neal Stephenson writing The Maltese Falcon — a funny, fast-paced science fiction heist and a wild romp of a story.”

“A fascinating thriller … high octane, tense and fast moving.”

“Brilliantly realized … a kickass SF story written with wit and intelligence.”

How Noah Lost His Ark

Lysheem of Cavvitoy of Lyshandrik of Carrfindoy of Lyvvittus of Cassimoy is a wyvern. That means she’s extremely tall, strong, hairless, has wings and a very useful tail. Readers of The Luck of Madonna 13 have met her 250-year-old self and know she’s a fearless ass-kicker. They may also recall she spent most of her life stranded on Montserrat, a hard-luck volcanic island in the Lesser Antilles. In How Noah Lost His Ark, you’ll meet the teenage Lysheem. As I write this it’s a novella on its way to becoming a short novel. You can read the first five chapters in Genesis … and Then Some, 2021 Edition.
