Behold the glorious art of Charis Loke that is the cover for Jade Shards, the Green Bone Saga short story collection releasing from Subterranean Press in July. I love how well the cover design complements The Jade Setter of Janloon and weaves in so many details from the four prequel short stories that comprise the collection. Family relationships have always been at the heart of the Green Bone Saga and Charis captured that perfectly.
Many thanks to Petrik Leo for hosting the official cover reveal on his blog and YouTube channel.
The signed, limited edition hardcover of Jade Shards will be available for preorder on the Subterranean Press website on Monday, March 27 at 12:00pm PST.

Book deal news! My next novel, The Last Contract of Isako, is a cyberpunk samurai space opera (without the space) that I describe as what you’d get if Akira Kurosawa wrote Dune starring a 50-something give-no-fucks swordswoman on her last job, blended with vibes of Blade Runner plus a touch of John Wick. Scheduled to release in Winter 2025. Read the announcement from Orbit Books.

Wow. The Green Bone Saga tops Reader’s Digest’s list of the 25 Best Fantasy Series Ever Written, and Jade City is included on Book Riot’s 22 Best Fantasy Books of All Time. More than a year after the publication of Jade Legacy, I’m happy and grateful that the trilogy is still garnering praise and attention.
