Dragon Precinct stories

Circumstances way beyond my control have prevented any novel-length sequels to my 2004 fantasy/police procedural Dragon Precinct. However, I have continued to tell stories in the universe in short story form. All four of the stories so far are available:

"Crime of Passion," published in Hear Them Roar, edited by C.J. Henderson & Patrick Thomas, which has just been reissued by the wonderful folks at Marietta Publishing. A hrancit demon seems to have killed a woman and her children--but hrancit demons usually commit massacres, they never have just one target. Danthres and Torin must solve this conundrum.

"House Arrest," published in Bad-Ass Faeries, edited by Danielle Ackley-McPhail, L. Jagi Lamplighter, Lee Hillman, & Jeff Lyman, also available from Marietta. Torin interrogates a house faerie regarding the suspicious death of one of the people who lived in the house he was responsible for.

"A Clean Getaway," published in the DAW Books anthology Pandora's Closet, edited by Jean Rabe & Martin H. Greenberg. A closet mysteriously appears in someone's home, and it's spewing filth. Torin and Danthres must find the source of the ick before it consumes the entire block.

"Getting the Chair," published in the Warner Aspect anthology Murder by Magic, edited by Rosemary Edghill, might be a bit harder to find, as it's out of print. Torin and Danthres investigate the murder of a wizard whose specialty was animating furniture, which means that they've got talkative witnesses among the furnishings--but the chair is telling a different story from the couch and the lamp...
