The Sleep of Reason is about gay disaster wizards trying to save the world. And start a revolution. And not break the future any more than it’s already broken.
So Human As I Am: There are infinite possibilities, and not a single one where they don’t destroy each other.
Sometimes saving the world looks like smashing the system. At an anti-pipeline protest in Northern Alberta, the foul-mouthed, soon-to-be-famous wizard Ian Mallory meets the man who will be his friend, comrade, and obsession for the rest of his life. Which would be great if he couldn’t predict the future and if didn’t know exactly how this story would end. Unfortunately, Ian can, and he does. The prequel story to The Sleep of Reason trilogy, setting up twenty years of slow-burn pining and guilty repression.

Cascade: It was an orderly, very Canadian kind of apocalypse.
Sometimes saving the world looks like a painful compromise with the system, meetings and endless paperwork. Unfortunately, no one sent the fascists the memo that you’re supposed to stop the world from ending. The future’s looking as grim as it ever has, but maybe Sujay, the underpaid, emoji-spell wielding intern, can magic up something better.
