In 1901, the Meiji Restoration has abolished the old ways and ushered in a cybernetic revolution. Androids integrate into society at all levels, following their programming for the betterment of every citizen, as servants, bodyguards, and bureaucrats. Jinzou are the future. Japan is at the threshold of a new tomorrow!
As a ronin steeped in the old ways, Itaru wants nothing more to do with the artificial creations posing as human. But when a jinzou is suspected of murder, he's pulled into a mystery that could tear the nation apart.
Malfunction or free will? When is a machine more than just a machine?
Coming soon from Broken Eye Books.

"The Patch Man"
Paizo's Pathfinder Tales, January 14 -- February 4, 2014
Blit is a hellspawn who makes a living cleaning up evidence for the less-reputable guilds of the Puddles.

But one night he's called in on a job so rushed the body isn't even dead yet. It's not long before he gets dragged into trouble over his head, and his boss decides it might be time to patch up the Patch Man.
Released in four installments on Paizo's Pathfinder Tales web fiction:
- Chapter One: Warm Bodies
