Forge of Stones:
In a world dominated by a theocratic regime, a rebel and a thinker embark on an unwilling adventure that will challenge everything about the past and shape their future in ways they could not have ever imagined. A strange pilgrim sets out on a journey that will bring him to the heart of everything, while all the while a revolution that will turn brother against brother is brewing. The truth behind everything will shatter their world, and nothing will ever be the same again.
Bobby on a stick:
A professional thief, Bobby Barhoe, has a problem with the Mafia: They want him to do a job which he can't possibly pull off, because one of his most valuable associates, John Staikos, had just had a terrible accident involving an oxygen tank and a blowtorch.
Desperately seeking to vanish as swiftly as possible, Bobby seeks the help of an old flame of his, Eileen Novorski. On his way there though, he runs over a horse, and the owner is an Alabama tribe shaman with a purpose: Help Bobby to bring John back from the dead, save his life, and perhaps have a couple of drinks while they're at it.
In his efforts, he will team up with a shaman, and almost die a number of times, fighting evil spirits, and demons, as well as get involved in a war against the forces of Hell itself.
