Genre: fantasy, science fiction, short stories
Timeless tales of saints and scoundrels, sinners and seekers, all from epic fantasy and space opera worlds that are both alien and hauntingly familiar.

In worlds ranging from the distant past to the end of time, the characters in these stories seek solace, meaning, and redemption as they struggle with what it means to be human.

Sometimes funny, sometimes dark and edgy, these stories showcase Marcus' original voice and scrupulous attention to detail. Beautifully told in a range of genres you're sure to love, you won't want to stop reading from the first story through the last.
