By This Axe!
The Rebirth of an Ancient God in Modern America (Novelette)
This myopic adventure blends military science-fiction and mythic fantasy as Yule First Warrior of the Eternal Hall and God of War over Men is cast down from Heaven to wander 21st Century America in a brutal quest for a much coveted head that remains maddeningly attached to the body of a meddlesome prophet. Parental Warning: Explicit sexual situations, extreme violence and brutality.
Soter's Way
The Peculiar Life of Archie Jones (Novelette)
Archie Jones has a good life. His boss, the benevolent Mister Flynn, thinks so highly of him that there has been talk among his coworkers of Archie being entered in the inaugural running of the Janitorial Olympics. Not only does Archie have the best job imaginable he lives in the four-story house left by his dear departed parents, which he shares with five fastidious roommates. However, there is something troubling about the man who lives in the attic. When his other roommates find themselves in danger, it ultimately falls to Archie to seek the aid of the mysterious man who has never left his room.
Organa
The Malfunction of Tray Sorenson (Novelette)
Tray Sorenson is a high-value security tech charged with keeping the terminal nodes and habitation zones free of freaks, trashers, and disorderlies. Tray's parent corporation has seen to his every need. His loyalty, efficiency, and professionalism are unquestioned, resulting in a 4.0 employer contentment rating and a correspondingly high personal simplicity quotient. Having just turned 25, he is now legally permitted to have consensual sex and apply for reproductive privileges. As Tray heads out on patrol to suppress an Amish disturbance an attractive woman catches his eye for a mere instant—his life will never be simple again.
Buzz Bunny
The Transmigration of Joey Watkins (Novelette)
Tamar Jackson is the 11-year old subject of extreme bullying who is befriended by a 'mad-planning' rabbit. The rabbit offers his assistance as a survival expert in return for two favors that will forever put Tamar at odds with the world of grownups.
Riding the Nightmare
Wake From Your Dream Place & If It Seems Fates Are Against You
Luther receives a mysterious text on his phone, and his life begins unraveling. Can he halt his own spontaneous devolution? Ben has a good job, a great boss, and an even better wife. Then he cracks open a fortune cookie which contains a chilling message.
God of War
The Deconstruction of Yule Alpha 7
He is a purpose-built time-jumper; a genetic reclamation asset created to kill primitive men, impregnate viable women, and abduct the most valuable children. Despite his origins he possesses human feelings, has absorbed certain ethics from those he had been designed to hunt, and has suffered a critical malfunction…
Yule Alpha 7 is a product of Mothercorp cast into the past a mere four years ago. After decades of cultural immersion with the target population he was designed to cull, his operational protocols have faltered. He has only a vague notion of his origins, but has none-the-less returned to his root timeframe intent on avenging himself against his own collective parent for the crime of having created him.
God of War takes place in the World of Organa—a one-way trip into a 24th Century corporate Valhalla as seen through the eyes of a genetically engineered person failing to come to terms with his origins. This brutal story postulates a scientific origin for at least one pagan god, and explores the question of military genetics, through the eyes of a conflicted man-hunter. Yule Alpha 7 is both doomed and damned, and has no higher aim than exacting a price from his evil creators.
Warning: extreme violence, brutality, and sexual situations

By This Axe!
Zack Sandlin
"This is a great piece of American literature. I was so into it I almost missed my stop twice. My favorite part was the limo scene and the purple scarf. I was laughing so hard I had to put it down!"
Akira
"Yule or Yo - had me rolling on the floor laughing. How odd earth would be to a true super-being. The description of his mother made me a little sick to my stomach, more so then the battle at the end. You really know how to write gruesome battle scenes—so vivid. Your descriptions of the car-Charger and the motorcycle were great. I loved how he took out the drug-dealers. I could really see his gleaming axe. This story was really deep and had a lot of metaphors."
Soter's Way
Adam Swinder
“Prepare for a sci-fi slap in the face, as LaFond takes you into a journey of a man whose childlike innocence is truly bliss.”
Organa
Lee Hoover
“Organa’s world is a cold place, where the ultimate good human has been used up and is about to be discarded. Tray is very compelling; a lusty, compassionate man. The villains are very interesting people. But the avatars steal the show with their sense of humor and fashion statements—they’re more human than the humans.”
Organa
“What a beautiful story. Can’t wait for a female dominated world! You guys suck! You think men are mean, just wait! I liked the avatars, especially Lars and his outfits. He dressed for every occasion. Tray was cool. He was an unsuspecting hero. I was shocked the way it ended. What is Organa going to do? How long will she live? Will they try to kill her?”
Buzz Bunny
Donnell Preston
“This is Watership Down meets The Wire—off the hook.”
Akira
"I finished Buzz Bunny. I think you were smoking pot when you wrote the story. It was both intriguing and tragic. Why did Joey have to show up again and tempt him? Tamar was almost free to start his life. Yes, I'm glad he helped the girl but I wished it could have happened another way.
"The story also makes me wonder...do parents not recognize when their child is being bullied? Do they not care because they can't handle their child looking weak? Were they bullied themselves and it brings back bad memories? Do they think boys/girls should learn how to defend themselves without their help? Maybe martial art centers need to promote anti-bullying classes to schools since the school system seems to turn a blind eye until something tragic happens.
"I like it better as a fantasy with a telepathic rabbit than as the story of a boy who thinks he has an animal helper."
