The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

About

I'm a writer who has made good (bad?) as an author-publisher after more than a decade of unpublished work. After many years of reading, I decided to try and to publish my first novel and a handful of short stories (all of which are set in the same world) in the traditional manner. This didn't work out. I wrote my second novel, Dispensing Justice (DJ), and after receiving a number of rejections (some of them encouraging), I decided to self-publish in late summer of 2011. By early December Dispensing Justice was available as an ebook, and the paperback followed in the first quarter of 2012. I've continued writing, and my third novel (2nd published, sequel to DJ) The Red Rook has gone live as both an ebook and print on Amazon. I've published my 4th novel, Parallel Visions: City of Angels City of Demons, and currently working on publishing my 5th (Doc Morrow: The Neopolymath) novel, as well as (finally) my first (Tactics of Transience) novel and a collection of short stories (Chronicles from the Nexus Volume 1).

My writing can be described as action-adventure SF that harks back to the golden age of space opera, but with a strong dose of modern SF, drawing from the sub-genres cyberpunk and the new space opera. My first published novel (as versus my first novel, which is a far-future transhuman action-adventure caper story) is an alternate history science fiction superhero coming of age story. It's sequel is also alternate history science fiction superhero story. I'm currently working on an urban fantasy novel with a SF twist, as well as a Doc Savage inspired novel in an "atomic punk" alternate history setting.


I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan and can be found in local book stores trying to avoid adding to my library or online puttering around on this wiki.

My last name, if you were wondering, is pronounced "Fryheight" and it means 'liberty' or 'freedom' in German.

Mini-bio

My first memories are of watching the Lone Ranger and JFK's funeral on TV. I discovered Heinlein in my middle school library, and have been avidly consuming SF and fantasy, sometimes to the detriment of my grades and social life, since then. I graduated from East Lansing High School, Michigan, in 1977, but my taste in music didn't crystallize until 1985 when I found myself in Los Angeles, recruited to write a Japanese language parser after spending a year in Japan working for Sumitomo Electric. A decade after that I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Masters of Science in Artificial Intelligence and got married. It would be another decade before I finished my first novel. I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan where I irritate my wife and daughter by listening to 80's music.

I self-published my debut novel Dispensing Justice in December of 2011. I am preparing to publish it's sequel, The Red Rook, in May of 2013.

Right from the start I liked Professor Maxwell's Duplicitous Demon: The Life and Science of James Clerk Maxwell (2019) by Brian Clegg as the Demon is in part the narrator. The Demon is wryly humorous and gives good footnote. One of the most interesting sections has this wonderful description of how JCM modeled electromagnetic fields mechanically, then converted the model into the famous electromagnetic field equations and moved physics into the realm of mathematical models, creating a foundation for scientific thinking that still exists today.
