Red Moon Rising back cover blurb

J Alan Erwine takes you into a future environmental nightmare that is not only all too possible, but is in fact well on the way there. The air and seas are filthy with pollution and oil spills, the U.S. Government is an effete and toothless replica of its former self, and business decides which rules they will allow to be enforced. Corporations lie, people die.

Including Erik Singer's brother Jeromie, killed while seeking evidence against an oil company regarding their spills in the Gulf. After five years, Erik has had enough of wallowing in loss and self-pity. Emboldened by the words and visions of a Native American environmentalist, Erik is ready to act.

And he has colleagues. The reluctant mayor of Tampa. The daughter of the most egregious industrialist. And a tree-hugging terrorist. Can just four people make a difference?

An Ephemeris update for February 2011

It's been a while since I've updated this blog about what's going on with the game, so now seems like a good time.

I'm currently finishing up The Bandit's Sourcebook, and we should have it out by the middle of February. Our second print title has also come out. You can now get The Ephemeris Species Compendium from DriveThruRPG. We will also soon be releasing Ephemeris: Critters and Pests in print as well.

A couple of other creators are also working on projects, so we will hopefully have those available in the coming months. We're still thinking about what kinds of projects to start on once all of the character sourcebooks are out, so if you have any ideas, please feel free to post them on the Ephemeris message board.

3 for 3

My story, "And the Lamb and the Lion Shall Not Lie Down Together" has been accepted for the A Taste of Armageddon anthology that will be released by WolfSinger Publications. As I mentioned previously, I only wrote three short stories in 2010. This was the third one that I was waiting to hear back that means that I went three for three in 2010.

All of the stories will be published later this year, and I'll post more information when they come out.
