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!

The Jagged Gate is coming!

It's still a month or two away from release, but this is a draft of the cover for my next book, a short story collection called The Jagged Gate. It will contain 10 of my published stories plus two never before published works. This is a book I probably wouldn't have put out if not for face to face contact with fans at conventions. Online, but current short story collection There is No Wheel is by far my worst selling book. But at conventions, Wheel is one of my better selling titles, and I frequently encounter people who've purchased the book previously who come back to tell me they want more! So, more is on the way.
