Everybody likes something that’s free – so here are some links to free and try-before-you-buy deals on some of my books and articles.


My Freebies page has a lot of free downloads and links to old articles of mine that are still available on other sites. People seem especially fond of my AD&D articles from the 1980s.

Blood and Honor cover

Amazon is offering a free audiobook of my D&D novel Blood and Honor from 2006 as part of the trial offer for their Audible service. I beat out 1,000 other entrants in an open call to win the contract for this book, set in the then-new Eberron fantasy-pulp-noir setting designed by my friend Keith Baker. Keith is also the designer of the hit card game Gloom and the new RPG Phoenix: Dawn Command. I am hoping to have him as a guest on the blog some time in the next few weeks, so watch this space.

Osprey covers

Also on Amazon, the pages for my Osprey Adventures and Dark Osprey books now have “Look Inside” links and free samples for the Kindle. The “Look Inside” links are above the cover shot:

Thor: Viking God of Thunder

Theseus and the Minotaur

Knights Templar: A Secret History

Werewolves: A Hunter’s Guide

Nazi Moonbase

For the Kindle samples, go to the book’s page on the Kindle store and select “Try a Sample.”

I hope you enjoy your free reading, and I hope you’re intrigued enough to buy the books! If Amazon is not your e-tailer of choice, I’ve included links to other vendors on my My Books page.


Business Card as Portfolio

I don’t reblog a lot, and perhaps I should. There are certainly a lot of good ideas out there.

Here’s one I definitely intend to steal.

For those who haven’t heard of him, James Wallis is a Man Who Knows What He’s At. I first met him almost 20 years ago when his company Hogshead Publishing licensed first edition Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay from Games Workshop. We’ve been in touch, off and on, ever since, and I’ve found he’s one of those people who is worth watching. His ideas are never less than interesting and constantly challenge the boundaries of what roleplaying is, what a game is – frankly, what anything is. Take a look at Once Upon a Time or The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen and you’ll see what I mean. Really, do – even (especially!) if you are not usually interested in card games or roleplaying games. I’m waiting for his latest game, Alas Vegas, with bated breath.

But that’s enough blathering for now. I’ll leave you to read and be inspired.
