Did you enjoy Balefire: A Dark Fantasy Novella and are hungry for more fantasy from Glynn? Well, you’re in luck! Here are a few of his works that take place in magical worlds.
Attempting to escape the supernatural politics of the fae, half-Fae Jason Kilkenny moves to the Canadian city of Calgary. Despite its relative backwater status, however, Calgary is the source for a rare material desperately sought after in the supernatural world.
Jason is drafted by the Queen of the Fae to act as her agent in the city and is drawn into the middle of a conspiracy that will destroy the fragile peace. Calgary’s resources and Jason’s own secrets combine to draw the city into the center of supernatural affairs—and threaten to destroy it!
Changeling Blood is a trilogy that starts with Changeling’s Fealty. It is a complete urban fantasy series, plus a novella.
In the world of ONSET, the supernatural has been a secret known to most of the world’s governments for some time. David White is recruited to the USA’s Office of the National Supernatural Enforcement Teams to help keep the peace in this secret community.
Other factions have different goals, however, and he finds himself dragged into a long and bloody secret civil war against the vampires of the United States—and even when he manages to help forge a peace with that enemy, others seek to destroy not merely his country but the very structure of his world.
ONSET is a complete series of four books, and a novella. The series begins with To Serve and Protect.
Glynn is very well-known for combining the fantasy and science fiction genres in Starship’s Mage. He continues this genre fusion tradition with Teer and Kard, which combines westerns and high fantasy.
Teer was forced into exile in the Spehari’s Eastern Territories after they betrayed his father’s memory, leaving him and his mother destitute. He has grown up on the ranch of his mother’s new husband, nursing the skills of a cowboy and the anger of a betrayed child.
When one of the demigod-like Spehari walks into his bar, Teer gives in to a pointless moment of anger—opening fire on one of the rulers of the Unity!
Sentenced to hang for his crime, Teer’s life hangs by the slimmest of threads: the mercy and secrets of the very immortal he tried to kill…
Teer and Kard is an ongoing series that begins with Wardtown.
Or perhaps high fantasy is more your thing. In which case, check out City in the Sky, a standalone fantasy novel.
Erik Tarverro is a half-breed raised as a smith in the human city of Vidran. Hounded for his mixed blood and denied mastery in his craft, he leaps at the chance to join his father’s people in the Sky City of Newport.
There, he learns he is the only heir of an ancient and noble line. His father’s name opens doors and gathers allies, but Erik must still struggle to understand both this strange new culture and his place within it.
Fate will deny him a peaceful understanding, though, as the clouds of war gather – and his father’s enemies have laid their eyes upon his City in the Sky.

Glynn, I love most of your books, but your fantasy series are just not up to the same quality. I understand if you want to take a break from sci-fi or are experimenting with new genres, but having tried reading all your fantasy books, my own humble opinion is… stick to sci-fi. you’re much better at it.
Kathleen Wade says
I love the fantasy series. Changeling Blood is my favorite and I have read all three several times now. I am also very much enjoying the Wardtown books, and hope more will come out soon.
City in the Sky is good, and the Onset series is good, but didn’t grab me the way the Changeling Blood series did.
I love (by order) Scattered Stars, all of Duchy of Terra, Red Falcon, Onset, and Changeling Blood.
