Turning the Tied . . . as in Tied-In Fiction

Presented by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers, this dazzling collection of uplifting and curious tales will take you through the centuries and from the depths of the ocean to the stars. You’ll discover well-known, beloved characters in new settings and circumstances.

Penned by some of the finest writers working in tie-in fiction today, including Max Allan Collins, Jonathan Maberry, Nancy Holder, Jean Rabe, Raymond Benson, and many more.

Sherlock Holmes, John Carter of Mars, Hopalong Cassidy, Mulan, Dracula, Mina Harker, the Three Musketeers, Cyrano de Bergerac, Baron Munchhausen, and Frankenstein’s creature are a scattering of the literary souls that populate these pages. And cats. There are more than a few cats.

Turning the Tied promises heroics, chills, a few laughs, and several good tidings.

My story is a Weird Western tale called “Behind the Tonto Rim,” featuring Hopalong Cassidy–of whom I’ve been a fan since early childhood. Evidence below.

(Available in trade paperback and ebook.)
