Welcome to my worlds!

I'm James Maxey, the author of the Bitterwood fantasy quartet, Bitterwood, Dragonforge, Dragonseed, and Dawn of Dragons, as well as a pair of superhero novels, Nobody Gets the Girl and Burn Baby Burn. (Click on the titles to be taken to Amazon.) My Dragon Apocalypse series combines both superheroes and epic fantasy, and so far three books have been published, Greatshadow, Hush, and Witchbreaker. The fourth book in the series, Soulless, is still under construction, but, I swear, it will see the light of day! I've also published numerous short stories, the best of which are reprinted in my collection, There is No Wheel.

This website is focused exclusively on writing. At my second blog, Jawbone of an Ass, I ramble through any random topic that springs to mind, occasionally touching on religion and politics and other subjects polite people are sensible enough not to discuss in public.

Coming out in 2014 will be my Oz inspired novel Bad Wizard, published by Antimatter Press. I'm currently working hard to finish up another superhero novel, Cut Up Girl. Watch this space for news!

Congrats Jeff!

Robo-Bobo has drawn a winner of the Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, 2009 edition and that winner is Jeff Domer Jr. To enter the drawing, I asked that people submit a haiku on my facebook page themed around my writing. The entries were:

It could go no worse,
when Nobody gets the girl.
We'll just move to Mars.
--Jeff Domer Jr.

Brilliant star sparks dreams
of space flight in lizard brains?
Sorry, perhaps not.
--Eric James Stone

Bitterwood falls down
Dragonforge tempers Bant out
Dragaonseed quenches
--Jack Tackett Jr.

Bant stands, weapon drawn
As everything turns to ash.
Even sweet revenge.
--Danielle Friedman

If you didn't take part in that drawing, stay tuned! I just got another anthology in the mail today, Blood and Devotion from Fantasist Enterprises, which contains the short story "Greatshadow" that I based my recent novel on. I'll be thinking of some way to structure the giveaway soon. In the meantime, here's the cover to whet your appetite:
