The Last Dinosaurs of Portland
Bottlecap Press, forthcoming in 2021
The Last Dinosaurs of Portland contains ten stories set within cascading surrealist versions of Portland, Oregon. New bridges sprout across Portland; a sabertooth cat roars atop the Moda Center; a cavalcade of matching bicycles pour into the Willamette River.
Etchings Press, July 2020
In this modern fable, a comic book writer and his artsy partner discover a magical tree in their backyard, able to cure any ailment with a single bite—but when the fruit rots, it reveals darker properties.
