The Tyro, The Dreamwalkers of Larreta, Book 1

Larreta, home of the dreamwalkers, is being torn apart.

Rifts are forming and swallowing everything in their path. People, structures, entire villages, are disappearing. No one knows where the rifts come from or how to stop them. And they are getting worse.

Leo, a Senior Dreamwalker, is recalled from Earth, where he fled rather than face his failures. His heightened ability to connect with the past is crucial to combat the rifts. He’s drafted to train a handsome new dreamwalker, Jesse: a young man whose own talents are part of the solution to stopping the destruction.

Together, the two must form a complicated passage through time and space, and they can only succeed with mutual trust. First, Leo needs to overcome his personal demons in order to make the necessary connection. But getting closer is not something he wants to do, in spite of his attraction to Jesse. However, the fate of more than one world rests on their success. And time is running out.

When dragons go to war, humanity will pay the price.

Social worker Megan Crunk discovers mysterious circumstances affecting a child and her family during a routine investigation.

Garrett lives a contented but solitary life in the secluded Ozark Mountains. Although disguised as a human, he rarely pays them any heed . . . until he meets Megan. Intrigued, he offers her love and protection. But keeping her safe from his own kind will be a problem.

Dragons have split into factions and war looms between them. Some want to recover their lost glory, a time when they were worshiped as gods and masters of the world. Others stand against them in defense of humanity. Garrett is instrumental to those seeking to dominate the world again, but his love for Megan aligns him against them. With both dragons and vampires after her, Megan’s only hope is if her lover can protect her from the dark world of secrets she’s discovered. But as Megan soon learns, she has secrets of her own.

Sean was born in Mesa, Arizona, but has spent most of his life in Missouri. Sean has a B.S. in Sociology from Missouri Southern State University, and a Masters degree in Criminology/Criminal Justice from Pittsburg State University. He is the author of the urban fantasy series The Dragon’s Blood Chronicles, and Moth, the first book in a series of paranormal mysteries. Exiles of Forlorn is his first YA novel, as well as his first foray into traditional fantasy.

His literary influences include H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, George R.R. Martin, J.R.R. Tolkien, Mark Lawrence, and R.A. Salvatore. Sean has been writing his entire life, but was inspired to begin writing professionally in 2008 after watching a terrible–albeit, popular–vampire franchise film. Sean was so annoyed with the film that he entertained himself by imagining dragons killing the vampires, which went on to inspire his first novel, The Shadow of Tiamat, the first book in the 4-part Dragon’s Blood Chronicles.

Sean lives in the Lake Ozark region of Missouri with his wife Amanda and several cats. When he’s not writing, he enjoys reading, watching films, playing Xbox and collecting firearms.

The Other Side of Philip K. Dick

Blade Runner, Total Recall, The Man in the High Castle

What these projects have in common is that they are based on the books or stories of Philip K. Dick. And those are just the tip of the iceberg of PKD Hollywood hits.

But what about Phil the man?

For years I’d heard hints of Phil Dick as someone unrecognizable to one who knew him well. And I knew him well the last ten years of his life. However, it wasn’t until I started doing research for my own memoir that I realized just how off the charts some of the theories about Phil had grown. Instead of dissuading me, those accounts made me more determined than ever to bring to light the man I knew. Of course, I spoke to some of Phil’s other close friends – Tim Powers, James P Blaylock, Merry Lou Staylor. They agreed that the myths in no way resembled the man we knew. So I settled in to set the record straight.

All these stories were brought home  to me when I did a panel at the Philip K. Dick conference at California State University, Fullerton in April, 2016. Merry Lou, her husband, Pete, and I wandered around at the beginning of the conference for a bit, listening in to various presentations. We slipped into the back of one presentation being given by a PhD. I was almost immediately put off, as the researcher seemed to connect all of Phil’s writing to drugs.

Let me explain why this was off-putting. Phil was known for doing drugs up into the 1960s. He even wrote about it. However, once he moved to Southern California in 1972, he had undergone a complete change in attitude about drugs. The man I knew did not pop pills, or indeed take anything other than snuff and his prescribed medications. In fact he became a staunch anti-drug supporter.

But since Phil himself wrote about taking drugs, it’s understandable why someone might think what Phil wrote was true. Unfortunately that is not necessarily the case. Phil love stories. He loved writing them, he adored telling them and he especially enjoyed recounting his latest theories to his friends. The thing is – the theories were not always true, and Phil would later tell friends he was just pulling their legs or whatever. He did this a lot. He also did it in his writing. He might propose a theory and in the same session contradict that theory and move on to another.

He especially did this in his Exegesis – a daunting two-million-word work that is part journal, part story templates, part whatever he needed it to be at that moment. The one thing it is not is completely accurate. To point at anything in it and say “Oh, this defines Phil as a person” will send you in a direction so far removed from the real man that it becomes nonsense. And that is exactly what has happened.

There are theories out there about who Phil really was and why he did whatever. Phil himself contributed so many different things that trying to get a sense of who Phil really was is close to impossible. Because Phil the man was nothing like those theories. He is not the myth that has sprung up about him. In fact, Phil himself would probably be appalled at the legends about him. But maybe – just maybe – he might think they were hilarious. And maybe even have a good laugh that his ultimate joke had been played as all these folks try to (incorrectly) dissect his personality. I can hear him saying, “I really had you going.”

So in the end, maybe Phil would enjoy all these silly theories and the nonsense that has been assigned to him by people who never met him. Folks who don’t have the advantage of knowing that Phil loved a good joke. But I do think part of him would regret that the real Phil was left out of the mix.

But no worries. Phil’s friends took care of that part. Tim and Jim have been telling the truth for ages. And I wrote a book that will give new insight as to just who Phil Dick was. It wasn’t an easy task. I did a lot of fact checking, research and talking to friends. But I did manage to capture the Phil that his friends knew. I hope you enjoy the real man as much as we did.

At the end of the day there is this truth: Philip K. Dick does not need to be sensationalized to be interesting.
