I've got a new long-ish short story in the osteomancy world coming out this fall in anthology that I don't know if I'm allowed to publicize yet, but once I do I'll be posting it on social media and my website. It'll probably take place a decade or two before CALIFORNIA BONES and feature a couple of characters who appear in the trilogy. And it's been out a while now, but there's another short story taking place in the Blackland universe up in podcast form at PodCastle.

Thanks for your question!

A boy and his uke

Greg with a blue ukulele and a pirate replica skeleton drinking booze


One year ago today I bought my first ukulele. We were staying downtown at Comic-Con, and I’d been playing my guitar quite a bit, but I’d left it at home and wanted something to strum. So I hoofed it a few blocks over to a pawnshop, saw this uke hanging on the wall, handed over my debit card, and beep-boop-beep they took fifty of my dollars (about twenty bucks more than I could’ve gotten the sa
