Codename: Danger – Full Story!

Fear soaked Reggie's shirt. Well, humidity was mostly to blame, but the fear was there. He'd traveled the world on the government's dime. Of the places he'd been, the humid ones were his least favorite. Remote ones, his second least. This place was both. But the fear was a regular hazard of the job...

Codename: Danger – Part One

This is Part One of another story from my Empty Quiver Collection. Each story in the collection features Augments (superheroes) who appear as secondary characters in the Crimson Son series. Reggie's, or Danger's, sole power is the ability to sense trouble, much like Spiderman's "spidey sense"...

Trickster

This was one of my earliest publications with another disappeared venue, Writer’s Haven. I haven't saved the best for last, more an indicator of how far I've come on this journey.

And if you squint real close, you'll see Hurricane and Hound...
