My name's Doug Milewski, and I'm an independent novelist, which in my case means that I have a day job. You can find my novels and stories at If you've ever wanted to leave the fantasy novel beaten path, these may be the books for you. (If I've done my job right, my books should feel like throwbacks to the late 70's and early 80's.)

I live with my wife, Storyjen, Squirrel the cat, and my daughter DesignGirl.

I don't make many protected posts. I have the wisdom to keep my mouth shut on delicate matters. I avoid following folks that don't punctuate, capitalize, or use paragraphs. (My apologies. I may like you, but the inner English Major in me screams at your prose habits.)

If you want to add me as a friend, please do. If you are an old friend, please leave a note saying, "Hi." I don't have many friends here, so be a kind soul. Do note that despite my lifelong SFF love, I'm not fannish. (I tried, really I did.)

I am currently writing Crystal Hope 2, which has nothing to do with Crystal Hope. It's like a JRPG series, where each game is a stand-alone.


Dwarf Shamaness
* Weeds Among Stone
* Standing Between Earth and Heaven
* A Touch of Genius

This story follows Maran the dwarf, who learns the unenviable ability to travel in the spirit world and speak to terrible gods.

Swan Song
* All the Saints Are Dead
* The Wind Before the Storm
* A Crown of Silver Stars
* The Phoenix and The Swan

This series follows Targa, a doomed mentor, as she guides three young women into their heroic future. In 2015, eFestivalOfWords Independent Book Awards nominated A Crown of Silver Stars in the Best Fantasy Novel (High Fantasy/Sword and Sorcery) category.

Pabi Ae

* Maid of Shadow
* Maid of Memory
* Maid of Hope

This series follows the unintentionally interesting and introspective life of Pabi Ae, maid to the last great hero, and her life after that hero is dead. This was supposed to be a novella but turned into a challenging work.

Crystal Hope

* Parts 1-4
* Parts 5-8
* Parts 9-12

Crystal Hope is written in the style of a Japanese role-playing game (JRPG). If you love a JRPG, you'll love this sci-fantasy epic filled with action, adventure, and humor. I blatantly stole from anime, wuxia, sentai, kaiju to fill a book with high-flying fights, giant monster battles, mechs, psychic princesses, giant airships, cute mascots, bold magic, and ridiculous characters with sincere goals.

Other Works

Usurper is a novelization of The Tragedy of Macbeth by William Shakespeare.

Visionary (formerly Double Jack) is a historical fantasy set in an alternate 1920's. I did my best to capture the literature of the day, and I may have succeeded too well.

The Trope Team: They Shot Disco Dead is an over-the-top adventure comedy where all conspiracy theories in the world are real (no matter how improbable or contradictory) and almost every fact is wrong.
