A Million Castaways, my space colonization novel set in the near solar system and the dangers of corporate control of technology.

When he retires on the west coast in On the Pacific, he finally learns to relinquish control over the currents and the wind.

The First Colonist on Mars: Courtesy of the Mars Historical Society tells the story of Jack Errores was fighting to survive on a desiccated planet that possesses one percent of Earth's atmosphere and whose regolith is largely silica and poisonous perchlorates.

The Last of the Coffin Ships returns to the solar system colonization project, although this time there is the political will and resources to expand far beyond what any would have expected.

The Ray Series begins with In Light of Ray, a novel about despair and redemption, this story details a manís drift from the Vancouver streets and the emptiness of dead-end jobs to a choice between embracing community and connection or disappearing into a waiting squalor. In Working for Ray, Sam's slide into despair has been temporarily halted by Rikka, who saves him even as he saves her.

The View from Vancouver tells the story of a homeless man who has been experimented upon and the steps he takes to get revenge, and incidentally ensure the same is not done to another.

Vested Interest details the attempt by two people to put the gutted space programs back together only to find the asteroid Vesta is much more interesting than distant observations would indicate.
