Ok here's the deal with Battlemage: I had gotten a first draft down on paper pre-hiatus and realized it needed a lot more than just ironing out and polishing up.  It needed a catastrophic rewrite. I've just started out doing Battlemage 2.0 lately, and pretty much the o...

Black Plasma: Vortex

   The website of A.J. Reis






This weird looking dude is A.J. Reis. He owns Black Plasma Books, a tiny little Indy sci-fi publishing startup.  Well, more of a concept than anything right now.


Not only an author, he's husband to an amazing wife, and Daddy-O to a couple of crazy-ass cats. He lives in Rhode Island, the Ocean State, but can’t swim and doesn’t care much for boats. When he isn’t busy  building God-knows-what in the garage, you can find him watching, reading  or writing anything sci-fi.
