The Last Artifact Trilogy
When they come into possession of a mysterious prehistoric cube, relic hunter Gabriel Parker, and the alluring artifact historian Natasha Rossi, find themselves inexplicably bound to a dark mythology dating back to the roots of civilization. Throughout history the long lost Cube has been sought after by emperors, popes, and caliphs alike. It is believed to be a container of knowledge; a holy vessel capable of emancipating humanity from the confines of earthly mortality. Now that it has been found, demonic forces are surfacing to destroy it. Their presence marks the return of a potent nefarious entity that once reigned supreme in Earth’s distant reptilian past.
Under the apocalyptic shadow of global unrest and rampant natural disasters, Gabriel and Natasha battle to prevent this sinister blight from being unleashed. With nothing but a tattered journal to guide them, they race from Italy to Morocco, and finally to the mountains of Northern Spain where they must locate a Lost Labyrinth spoken of by the ancients. There, deep in a Sacred Chamber, they will find salvation for mankind, but not without a price. A cosmic clock is ticking. It marks the world’s entry into the oblivion of the Dark Rift, and the final days that remain.
THE CHRONICLES OF GORDON’S FEAST
After building a peculiar machine capable of transporting users into a shared dreamworld reality, Dr. Edward G. Perniferous and super-geek Handly Hannagan use the contraption to discover a strange fantasy world in the unconscious mind of a psychotic inpatient. His name is Gordon Gaudin, and together with him they embark on a perilous adventure through legendary lands and ravaged kingdoms, where magical pools bridge mysterious dreamworld dimensions.
The evil Jim-Dan’s foul shadow has fallen over Lowerworld, and the fetid hosts of his repugnant glor are amassing in the Cloacas. An apocalyptic war is brewing in Gordon’s psyche, and only Gordon has the power to restore his broken kingdom and save his one true love, Mandy Mirabelle.
Mandy’s family has run the Mirabelle Hospital for the Mentally Infirm for over two hundred years now, but a debilitating phobia of its old wing is putting Mandy’s inheritance at risk. Something terrible happened to her and Gordon there, and it’s directly connected to her unscrupulous cousin, Jean-Claude Von Metzger. For the past decade he’s been using the hospital’s patients to test an experimental drug first conceived by his grandfather in nazi Germany. Its purpose is to eliminate fear in soldiers, and Gordon’s being used as his primary test subject.
After discovering that Jean-Claude’s inhuman research is part of a sinister agenda, Mandy sets out across Europe to search for a secret research facility where missing patients from her hospital are being held. What she finds is something inconceivably heinous, and only she and her steadfast friends will be able to save the world from its evil.
Steeped in magical realism, and truly hilarious at times, Gordon’s Feast tells a riveting story of two young lovers, split apart by very evil men, and forced to go through their worst fears in order to be together again.
