In addition to the above, I have penned (though not necessarily published) the following:

- “The Lake Road” — a short story about a warrior angel charged with guarding a seemingly dull rural highway
- The Pajamazon Amazon vs The Goofers Twofers — a superhero-themed children’s chapter book
- “Mother Magus” — a novelette about one woman’s journey into the desert and madness
- “Dime Story” — a vignette exploring the lives of four Milwaukeeans who come in contact with a common coin
- “Monkeys” — a Kafkaesque short story about what a man must do to defend his home from an unlikely invader
- “Great Rewards” — an Altaerran tale of a dishonored knight’s undying loyalty to a usurper prince
- “Morning Meal Mayhem” — a silly short story starring familiar breakfast cereal icons engaged in mortal combat
