"The Soundtrack to Stealing Nations" Playlist

Invariably all things end, and when they end, it is important to pay homage to the things that inspired the work. As much as I am a devout lover of Heavy Metal, I must acknowledge that I have a deep and abiding love of Hip Hop.

I like it darker, preferably with a quicker beat and more aggressive political themes, though I also just like hearing a good story. The songs below were chosen because they inspired the writing of The Saga of The Panther. I hope you enjoy these artists as much I was inspired by them.


The Gem of Acitus - "Point of No Return" by Immortal Technique
The Light in the Dark - "Jigga What/Faint" by Linkin Park feat. Jay Z
By The Tears - "Party Up (Up In Here) by DMX


When Shadows Walked on Legends - "Da Mystery of Chessboxin'" by the Wu-Tang Clan
Loss - "Civil War" by Immortal Technique ft. Killer Mike, Brother Ali & Chuck D
The Free and The Damned - "Forgot About Dre" by Dr. Dre ft. Eminem, Hittman


"Design In Malice" by Jedi Mind Tricks ft. Young Zee and Pacewon
"Frontlines" by Diabolic ft. Immortal Technique
"Run The Jewels" by Run The Jewels

THIEF OF NATIONS arrives 3/21/2017!

I've been waiting a long, long time for this moment...

I'm pleased to announce that the third and final installment of The Saga of The Panther, THIEF OF NATIONS, arrives on March 21st, 2017!

And without much ado, here's the cover!

Huge thanks for James R. Tuck for producing a third amazing cover!

New from Jay Requard and Falstaff Books in 2017, Thief of Nations is the thrilling conclusion to the blistering adventure that started in Thief of Shadows

Manwe The Panther returns in a battle for the very souls of the savannah! Following the devastating conclusion of Thief of Secrets, the greatest thief on the plains is alone. Robbed of the revolution he started by the conniving witch-doctor, Voduni Calla, the mad mystics designs have been revealed in their full horror. The dead have risen, stalking the the night at the villain's bidding.

At Manwe's back stands Cleon, the powerful Gypian sorcerer, and Folami the Songbird, a thief that stands the Panther's equal, ready to fight for a world the Manwe strove so hard to destroy. Wedged between the oncoming might of the Gypian Empire and Calla's undead, they will seek weird powers beneath the earth to save the innocent above it.

Trapped between death and destiny, Manwe will fight for liberty right on the edge of oblivion!
