LETHE is a timely sci-fi thriller wherein men and women of conscience take a stand against invasive surveillance technology, dehumanizing socialist doctrine, and the tyrannical herd.


A picture is worth one-hundred-million minds.


The West has been ravaged and dehumanized by totalitarian socialists allied with the Communist Chinese. The few remaining free men and women constituting the resistance on the coast continue to defy the dictatorship of the resentful, but know that their time is running out. Rather than have the tide take them or surrender outright, the resistance is mobilizing to mount one final stand. If any are to survive the regime’s mental collectivization, they will need a miracle and plenty of gunpowder.

CYPULCHRE is a dark and twisted cyberpunk thriller that will take readers on a journey through revolt and redemption, high-tech nightmares and low-life dreams.


The inventor of the CLOUD technology—that's swept Los Angeles' rich and willing into the noosphere—has lived in exile for a decade, north of the mountains, feared, defamed, and despised by his former colleagues and estranged family. When he learns that the same technology that led to his downfall now threatens his family as well as the thousands synchronized to it, he must take action. Nothing is what it seems, especially with his psychoses turning allies to enemies, and enemies into demons.



ARCHETYPAL is the highly-anticipated sequel to MacKinnon’s 2014 cyberpunk thriller, Cypulchre.

The Outland Corporation’s CLOUD, a much-loved and massively-popular virtual realm, has been destroyed in a suicide bombing, which has turned all of Los Angeles upside down.

Hundreds of thousands of users who were in the CLOUD at the time of its destruction have had their data and electric selves corrupted, accidentally collectivized, and then dumbly redistributed. The fallout is catastrophic.

While Outland’s interim CEO Celeste Charming attempts to turn this tragedy into profit or worse, Dr. Oni Matsui sets out to free her captive friends and to prevent the forced evolution of humanity for which her good intentions have paved the way.

FAULTLINE 49 is the harrowing account of American reporter David Danson's Gonzo-style trip through US-occupied Canada in search of the principal provocateur in the Canadian-American War: terrorist mastermind Bruce Kalnychuk. As Danson draws closer to the truth about the 2001 World Trade Center Bombing in Edmonton, Alberta, and the criminal war it propagated, his journalistic distance to the story collapses, rendering him not only a brutalized participant, but an enemy of the state. David's findings are as daunting as the personal price he's paid to make them available to the North American public.

Charged with the care of the aristocrat’s petulant son, Elijah Cooper safaris into the Holy Mountains, only to be dislocated by a time fracture.

Joe MacKinnon & Carlo Schefter's gut-wrenching fantasy is out now!

NEWSREAL  is a riotous and scathing look at fake news' real consequences.

Big-city reporter Alecia Troust writes a weekly column for The Gruffington Buzz. Her hopes of promotion and of becoming the face of the Buzz on national TV are dashed when her make-it-or-break-it article is lost along with her laptop. Instead of playing a victim to circumstance or admitting her bad luck to her editor, Alecia instead submits an even more compelling story. However, this new story—regarding homegrown terrorism and containing “evidence" of an execution on American soil—is a fabrication; fake news. Although she initially wins the admiration of her editor and national attention, Alecia’s lie also draws the ire and interest of anarcho-communists, white supremacists, Jihadists, the mainstream media, as well as those who seek to profit from maintaining the fake news’ veracity, including the FBI and the CIA.  With the worst of the country desperate to exploit the story for political ends, Alecia realizes far more than journalistic integrity is at stake. She must get the truth out before her fake news catalyzes a national descent into paranoia, war, and authoritarianism.

BY WILL AND GONE is a unnerving historical thriller detailing the forbidden love and honor killings that maligned Canada's early French settlements.
