Strength of Wild Horses
This is the sequel to Hold on to Your Horses that I didn’t expect to write. But when the first book was in my daughter’s hands, she asked the question “What are wild idea horses good for?” This book is me answering that question. The answer: “Solving all sorts of problems in amazing ways.”

Planet Mercenary
This is the role playing game that is based on the Schlock Mercenary Universe. I was one of the writers and the primary editor for the project. It is a game that emphasizes storytelling and humor and is structured in a way the help encourage that in the players. I had lots of fun working on the project.

Schlock Mercenary books
Howard does the writing and drawing of the comics. I am the one who makes them be books. I do the editing and vast majority of the layout and design. For the book Force Multiplication, I wrote the bonus story. These books are very much a result of my creative input and I’m pleased to have been part of them.

Cobble Stones
Cobble Stones is a sampling of essays pulled from this blog. It is a great way to introduce new people to the kinds of things which I write here. This is why I made the book, to let people share and so that when I’m at conventions I can point to it. Cobble Stones is fairly short, as befits a sampler. Only a few more print copies are available in our store. Electronic copies can be purchased through and Barnes & Noble.
