If you made an urban fantasy where James Bond was a wizard with some Peter Parker mixed in, you’d have Chasing the Wyrm, the new novel by James L. Wilber.

Chasing the Wyrm: Christopher Yan – Office of Arcane Affairs

To protect its interests, the U.S. government projects its power militarily, economically, and magically. It leaves the last to the Office of Arcane Affairs.

Christopher Yan didn’t ask for the job. A wizard born with the power to warp reality, the OAA calls on him to neutralize all arcane threats. Part spy, part fixer, part assassin, Topher searches for a way to make his unique gift serve both his country and his principles. When he makes an enemy of a rogue wizard serving a dying insurgency, he learns the limits his conscience can bear.

Paul Meets Vs. The Vampire by Shade OfRoses, is now available at Amazon.

Paul Meets the Ghost of Xmas Past by Shade OfRoses, is now available at AmazonSmashwords, and Kobo.
