Hi, I'm Nazri, a Filipino-Malaysian author based in California. I’m trilingual, but I really only write in English. I can also speak just enough Sindarin and Valyrian to impress absolutely no one. My urban fantasy novels focus on realistic heroes who use wits, style, and their wildly unpredictable magic to (try) and save the day. Think sass and class, while kicking ass.

My influences come from horror and fantasy: HP Lovecraft, Anne Rice, George R.R. Martin, Chuck Palahniuk, Terry Pratchett, and Neil Gaiman. Growing up I was shaped by the Blood Sword, Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf, and Grey Star game book universes. I'm also inspired by video games, specifically the Castlevania, Final Fantasy, and Persona series.

TL;DR: I'm a huge nerd. And yes,

This is a short, sweet read, and while some may balk at the book's price, I'm here to say that it's well worth it. Yanez doesn't spend page upon page meandering or hemming and hawing, the way this sentence does. He offers terse, practical, actionable ...more

Stealing Fire by Steven Kotler

This could have been an excellent read, but it's yet another in a line of books bogged down by an utter lack of actionable information. It's even more of a letdown because the book's marketing suggests that it's exactly what you're meant to find insi ...more

Warning: it's in your best interest to read the books in order. Start with Penumbra, available for free from, and then move on to Shadow Magic before reading Dark Harvest. Dustin says so! Just... just trust in Dustin.

Strangers To Superfans by David Gaughran
"Useful for what it was, but it felt as if the author glossed over a lot of the nitty gritty in favor of advice to "fix" this or that, without giving a lot of specifics. Examples at each stage in the solution section would've been far more helpful..." Read more of this review »
Strangers To Superfans by David Gaughran
