Nellis Gray

Nellis Gray cover

A fervent league of Klansmen serve as sadistic enforcers for a shady political campaign financed by a big-tent preacher with a global parish and secrets to hide.

Sapped by rowdy years on the road, rude, cranky, and cantankerous Nellis Gray has a locked steel gate, a pack of scruffy dogs, a pet pig named Chester, and every intention of spending his remaining years working on his small farm in seclusion. He shuns the outside world, until desperate young sisters draw him out of isolation to save the community from a violent racist conspiracy and craft redemption from ruin for their eccentric family. 

Current world events provide the darkest and most terrifying glimpse of a bleak and divisive future in the history of our democracy. Nellis Gray is the first of three novels that explore insidious bigotry and racism, the brewing revolution by an immense segment of our society who have been rendered destitute and helpless by obscene oppression and excruciating economic inequities, and the blatant revocation of our rights, liberties, hopes, and dreams by a surly tyrant who serves at the pleasure of an exclusive clique of tycoons who acquired the presidency as the ultimate investment.

Morgan’s Knot

Over the past few years, Rick has published the first six volumes of the Morgan's Knot Serial Fantasy to warm reviews from dedicated fans, young and old, under his given name, Eric T. Stiller, Jr. 

This tale is written as a serial, where the end of the first episode is the beginning of the second and so on. The story assumes that the reader is versed in the secrets and mysteries discovered by our young heroes in previous volumes. I recommend reading them in sequence to maintain continuity!

Dealer opens as the Summer of Love flowered in 1967 and the counter-culture revolution erupted across the western world. Long-haired, pot-smoking hippies infested major cities, college campuses, and small towns with raucous music and a social consciousness that exploded into the anti-war movement. Political and social norms were trounced by a generation devoted to sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll.

A brash young entrepreneur recognized the potential and built a robust and illicit chain, importing from the Caribbean, South America, the Middle East, and Asia, to supply a budding market from coast to coast.
