Two cultures . . .
Both settled the same world, but the nations of Santuario and Jarðvegur are literally poles apart. The people of Santuario are refugees, struggling to survive on a resource-scarce tropical island under a backwater totalitarian regime. The far northern people of Jarðvegur might have wealth and democracy on their side, but they lost the moral high ground centuries ago to fear and isolationism, and are discovering now just how difficult it is to claw their way back up.

Santuarian cop Alex Rukow has learned the...
The spires of Oxford are beautiful and delicate and cold and terrible. The Spires stories, not all of which are set in Oxford, are about that world: a world at once beguiling and alienating.

Two city states: Beulah and Tophet. One promises to be heaven. One is certainly hell.
But there’s one thing they have in common: nobody is free.

Welcome to Tucker Springs, population 75,000 + you! This collaborative story world is brought to you by three award-winning LGBTQ authors: Heidi Cullinan, Marie Sexton, and L.A. Witt.
The fictional town of Tucker Springs is located on the western slope of Colorado, in between Grand Junction and Silverton. One of the themes of Tucker Springs is that what you see is not what you get. Take, for example, the “springs.” Although many neighboring towns have actual hot springs, the spring here is more of a bubbling mud puddle.

I like my women like I like my whiskey: more than is good for me.
London. Home to eight million people, the principal residence of the British Crown, the world’s oldest underground railway, and a metric arseload of monsters.
There are wizards on the streets, vampires in the Inns of Court, and werewolves hogging all the best hotels.
Me, I’m just trying to make a living. Easier said than done when you’re a half-faery PI with a dead partner and a thing for the wrong kind of women.
One day, it's going to get me killed. But what a way to go....
