Are you tired of the same old formulaic romance dance?

Are you sick of slap-dash slashers and predictable plot point rehashers?

Are you at the end of your rope with sparkly vampires and sexy werewolves?

Have you had it up to here with silly space operas where the otherworldly setting is just a veneer for the randy crew to make out with aliens?

Is it time to drop the buddy cops and stop watching the detectives for a while?

My friend, let the New Weird Tales refresh you!

You’ve tried the rest, now it’s time for the best. Welcome to an adventure like no other!


“Revered Leader, we have visitors from the Third Dimension.”

The speaker was a great snake with flexible, boneless arms. He held a trident in one hand. His golden scales glittered under the red sun that baked the desert world of Zandanua.

“Indeed,” mused the mighty emerald-scaled anthropomorphic snake king seated on the colossal throne of red stone in the grand hall of Ajnevan Palace. “Were they sent by my brother, Yig?”

“They are renegades, Mighty One,” the guard explained. “They are searching for a key to assist in solving a quest given them by Nyarlathotep.”


This fix-up novel follows the events that transpired in Ketil and Yitzy’s Adventures in the Xura Dream House. The book can be read as a standalone, but for a better understanding of the characters and events, it is suggested that Ketil and Yitzy’s Adventure in the Xura Dream House should be read first. It is a fun, fast-paced buddy story. Grab your copy here!

Once you have read Ketil and Yitzy’s Adventure, you will be In the Know so you can be In with the In Crowd! Then you can join us at the Kewl Eldritch Horrors table.

I am currently doing final edits and managing the book's details on Amazon. A pre-order link should be available soon.

Hop On!


  1. Pulled me right in. Snakes . . . Why did it have to be snakes? (forgive the reference to one of my favorite movies!).

    1. Movie references are always welcome.
      Except for Alien 3. I'm still angry about the $5 I paid to watch that mess.

  2. Intriguing snippet, loved the descriptions!

  3. I love the vivid description of those snake creatures.

  4. Just curious as to the perspective here... If they are all snakes, why would they notice that their companions were snakes... or even reptiles?

    1. I'm not sure I understand the question. The king and the guard are snakelike beings. The visitors aren't. This becomes clear later in the paragraph.


I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
