"Full of voice and redolent of the time period" -British Fantasy Society
"Explores concepts of identity and Otherness as well as acknowledging hangover caused by colonisation and imperialism with a historical fictional approach" -The Fantasy Hive

It's the Wild West, but it's wilder than you think...
Discover uncharted territories in this powerful collection of Western adventure stories, where settlers who flood into a new continent in search of a better life must confront the indigenous population who call it home.
Follow the journey of a determined young widow who is struggling to keep her farm going, as she must deal not only with the harsh realities of the frontier but also with injustices brought by her fellow settlers. Meet a newlywed couple struggling to understand each other and their new life together.
Watch the small-town lawman fighting to keep the peace in a land filled with tension and violence. Read the perspective of an academic looking to make his name by documenting the indigenous people.
And follow the orc wanderer watching his people being swept aside by the human settlers and facing the difficult decision of whether to fight – or to assimilate.
Through these disparate but interwoven stories, we see a new mythology of settlement born, old stories told in new ways – a fresh focus on the legends we write for ourselves.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Numerous revisits to the marvellous and thought-provoking message of hope of a culture indigenous to a home, that sadly is not far from the truth humanity has historically witnessed. An anthology of tales worthy of "The Martian Chronicles', 'Roots' and 'Once upon a time in the west'." -Amazon, 5* "The characters are written in a way that you love even the 'bad guy' ... I found myself so invested in the story, that pulls you in from the first paragraph, that I actually missed my bus. I can’t wait for the sequel." -Amazon, 4* "This is a wonderful read, well-structured and Western-inspired." -Amazon, 5* "Great use of language and fantasy themes. It’s also really creepy in places; I don’t care for horror, generally, but it’s done really well here, and these elements add to the dark atmosphere."-Amazon, 5* "The traditional Western genre is reimagined with a fantastical twist. The heart of GREYSKIN is an exploration of the injustices faced by the indigenous orc population. The author highlights the tension between the human settlers and the native orcs with care. - the stories are woven together with finesse and offer a refreshing perspective on the classic Western." -Goodreads, 5* "What sets this book apart from others in the genre is the unique blend of fantasy elements with themes of colonization in America. It is a fresh and exciting approach that I haven't encountered before." -Goodreads, 5*
