When a young woman is brutally assaulted at the Cat Mountain Ski Resort, two of the three suspects Sheriff Jim Weber arrests come from wealthy families whose roots go deep into Arizona’s history, and the third has a past shrouded in mystery. The sheriff soon finds himself involved in a sordid case that stretches from the White Mountains all the way to the governor’s office and beyond. Pressured by local and state officials as well as representatives of the FBI and U.S. Marshal’s Service, all with their own agenda, Weber must stand firm to see justice done and send a message that in Big Lake, nobody is above the law.
One reviewer has referred to the Big Lake mystery series as “Mayberry Meets Twin Peaks.” It’s a combination of humor and intrigue that launched author Nick Russell’s first Big Lake book into Amazon’s Top 100 Paid Kindle books for over 78 days, and Big Lake Reckoning, the eighth book in this popular series, is sure to be a hit, too!
The Powterosian peninsula is in retreat everywhere. Chaos reigns as Dreadsdrac’s armies roll over the unprepared kingdoms. What has been impregnable is undermined. One of Neuyokkasin’s greatest allies is engulfed in the mayhem and topples. Another loses territory at an alarming rate. Unable to think of offense, it withdraws into a defensive mode, sensing little hope of survival. There appears to be no hope of thwarting the Dreaddrac advance. King Saxthor is exhausted trying to counter the enemy everywhere. Neuyokkasin’s resources are dwindling. There seems to be no other resources necessary to stem the dark, unrelenting tide. The king’s plea for assistance to Emperor Engwan IV of the Powterosian Empire goes unanswered. Saxthor stands alone as Queen Dagmar has disappeared as well. What hope is there? What else could possibly make things worse? Things can always get worse as Saxthor soon finds out. The whole Powterosian world is about to explode into a far greater conflagration. Sometimes, the loyalty of friends is all you have to hold onto. Honor, integrity, and loyalty disintegrate overwhelmed by loss of confidence, greed, and treachery. How can it end well? The Dragon Ring and the Crown of Yensupov now take on urgent significance in this desperate war for control of the Powterosian world. Dragons, wizards, elves, dwarves, witches, orcs, and other fantastic creatures spiral through this epic story of life with a twist. Great fantasy is credible, and it shows real life issues woven with delicious manifestations and personifications. Time to gobble up this epic if you haven’t started it before now.

Deliverance will come… A great flood once wiped clean the earth, destroying everything upon it. Before the deluge, in a time now forgotten, the world was a place of warriors and witches, conflicts between kingdoms, and, until their extermination, dragons. In this world, men may live centuries, fallen angels have begotten terrifying spawn, and sometimes, the best hope can be found in a brothel.
In the land of Transalpina, a new religion spreads, and important men are dying mysteriously, slain by what can only be the fire of dragon breath. Summoned by the Queen Garnet, the legendary warrior Gorias La Gaul returns to the place where he once saved the queen’s young granddaughter from treachery and enslavement. The Princess Nykia is gone, and soon others may try to claim the throne. The queen has little choice but to turn to the only man who ever told her no.
With the aid of one of the queen’s elite guard, the battle maiden Alena, and the young palace servant Orsen, the old mercenary will face pirates and traitors, monsters and foul magic in the quest to find the missing heir and learn the truth behind the disconcerting murders. Deliverance will come for Gorias La Gaul, but for now there are women to love, secrets to discover, and killing that needs doing.

There Goes the Neighborhood; Earthly Fantasy/Science Fiction Short Stories
The twenty original Twilight Zone-like short stories of this diverse fantasy and science fiction collection take place mostly on contemporary Earth, or on some slightly futuristic or altered Earth, where a technology, ghost, dragon, demon, curse, or space-alien intrudes. Vampires and zombies are avoided. Sometimes calamity is averted, sometimes it is not. The perspective is an adult one; a PG rating may be appropriate for some stories, as sex or violence is sometimes alluded to though not graphically depicted.
A list of contents with links to each story is provided to aid reader navigation through the collection, and a link back to the contents list is provided after each story. (Note: some e-book formats do not support this feature.) The last story is a continuation of the first story, otherwise the stories are not related to each other and do not appear in any particular order, though some of them are related to subsequent e-book novels. In the list of contents a brief phrase describing each short story has been included to aid story selection.
The brief introduction which precedes the stories provides the author’s perspective on short story advantages compared to novels. Finally, following the short stories a brief description of the author and pending near-term e-book novels is included.
