After unwittingly being posted as Regional Sanitation Specialist in a dry-as-toast village on the edge of oblivion, fate thrusts Eron into the middle of the biggest social upheaval since the apocolypse 500 years earlier. Cast feet first into the vast network of roads inhabited by a highly organized nomadic subculture and genetically engineered megafauna, Eron finds himself on the run from the Auckian Guard, even though he's technically a member. Unable to go home, he and a wild boy from the wastelands head Westward at the dubious advice of local villagers, but one question remains. Will he find a good place to hide?
Bungle of Oz (2013) is based in the fantasy world of Frank Baum where the obnoxiously vain glass cat gets chipped and has to do something about it...or gets someone else find someone else to help.

"I'm interested in life without technology and the philosophy of emerging cultures. I've often wondered what scribes in the dark ages were thinking when they read about the lost technology of the ancient world. Oppression. Lawlessness. Cults and cultures. Nomads. Slavery. When the remnants of science can be confused with cosmic intervention. When the earth is wild and uncharted. I also incorporate elements of Jewish and Plains Indian mythology into my work. And, predictably, in my work, there is a strain of coffee that makes people a sort gaseous jinn-like immortal... if you drink enough." - C Bailey 2014
