Author’s note: The Cadence Drake novels are Urban Fantasy in Space with Techie Shapeshifters and Vampires. The Longview Stories are Dystopian SF. However, while the two series fit in different genres, each story stands alone, and all of them read in order tell a bigger story. The read order is:

  • Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood
  • Warpaint
  • Born from Fire
  • The Selling of Suzee Delight
  • The Philosopher Gambit
  • Gunslinger Moon
  • Vipers’ Nest
  • The Owner’s Tale
  • The Wishbone Conspiracy (in revision now)
