While still toying with writing in different genres, James prefers Fantasy and Horror/Weird Fiction. Much of his work is set in the fictional world of Tornum, a land where the Elements can be wrought to perform powerful feats of magic, gods walk among men, and alchemists create living mechanical beings.
