(?   -    ) US teacher and author, most of whose fiction is contained in the Wild West Exodus over-series of Alternate-World Steampunk Westerns beginning with the first volume of the Shared World Jesse James Archives subseries, Honor Among Outlaws (2013), based on a Wargame, in which James and Billy the Kid trade high-tech blows as they vie for control of a shattered America. In Bastion (2014), Secret Masters hidden in a remote Keep attempt to keep humanity safe from dark forces. Cold Hearts (2016) introduces Lucinda Loveless, agent for a beleaguered railroad company, to the two charismatic antiheroes.

Rise of the Alchemist (2021), a singleton, traverses regions not unlike the territories ransacked in his main series: an Alternate History nineteenth century land, the Jonbar Point of the tale being the failure of the American revolution. The action, which takes place in the kingdom of Albion, involves Magic, the Equipoisal implications of this complication not being seriously examined. [JC]
