Toy Soldier Saga

A series of novels and stories in a fantasy space opera universe.


This blog will keep my readers updated as to the current changes and schedule of publication (such as it is) for Toy Soldier, a series of novels that I am writing, set in the Dungeons & Dragons® Spelljammer® campaign setting.  I may also use it to wax rhetoric about the mechanics of, and inspiration behind, the writing, much in the same way that a Director's Commentary works on a DVD release of a movie, or to postulate my theories on the shared universes (Spelljammer®, Forgotten Realms®) in which these stories are set.

This blog and website will soon be moving to WordPress at

Development Notes for Chapters Eleven Through Thirteen of Brothers in Arms

This was quite the task as far as writing goes.  First of all, I lost the entirety of Chapter Thirteen - twice!  How, you ask?  By writing it on my Smartphone between editions and saving it on Dropbox.  Because Polaris, the program for Samsung phones, is different from Microsoft Word; and because it's a lot of data and it's slow to upload, the conversion completely screwed the file twice (and I also think it had to do with going from my cellular reception to wireless while...
