Welcome to my worlds!

I'm James Maxey, author of fantasy and science fiction. My novels include the science fantasy Bitterwood Saga (4 books) the Dragon Apocalypse Saga (4 books), numerous superhero novels including Nobody Gets the Girl and the Lawless series, the steampunk Oz sequel Bad Wizard, and my short story collections, There is No Wheel and Jagged Gate. 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. If you'd like to get monthly updates on new releases, as well as preview chapters and free short stories, join my newsletter!

ConCarolinas June 4-6

I'll be at ConCarolina's this weekend and just got my schedule. I love this particular science fiction convention because they always have a lot of panels discussing the science half of the equation, while many cons focus solely on the fiction. And, the con has been surging in size in recent years, no doubt due to the enthusiasm and talent of the organizers. So, if you're near Charlotte this weekend and want a chance to geek out, there's really no better place you could want to be.

I'll have a table in the hall to sell copies of my books where I'll hang out between panels. Not that there's much "between" for me. I'm on eleven of them! Here's my scedule:
