Beyond the Farthest Star

Beyond the Farthest Star

Released March 2nd:

Young Tarzan

"Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She" is a short story begun by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1930 and left unfinished until Danton Burroughs asked Michael Tierney to complete it in 2005.
After Danton's tragic death, publication was delayed until the March 2019 issue of Cirsova Magazine, Volume 2 #1.

Here are a couple of pre-pubication articles about Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She:

Here's a link to an article by Paul Hair on Hollywood In Toto.

Here's a link to an article by Deuce Richardson on dmrbooks.com.


Now available:

Gods & Service anthology paperback

"Who is God?" is a social science-fiction short story by Michael Tierney, released December 2019 in the paperback anthology "Gods & Services", edited by R. J. Carter. A mysterious shop appears out of nowhere with a sign that reads Goods & Services, but one of the "O"s has fallen off. The inventory is unusual: lost or forgotten gods who perform services for a price.


Jack's Basement

Cirsova #9

Cirsova #9, Fall 2018, contains Jack's Basement by Michael Tierney, a horror humor story with a twist ending that should appeal to fans of comic books.

Cirsova issues #9 and #10 are now on store shelves.

The Criteria for Admission Into the Galactic Community

Cirsova #7

Cirsova #7

This issue includes The Criteria for Admission Into the Galactic Community, Michael Tierney's third contribution to the magazine.
The title tells you that this is a science fiction story.

It is available now, or you can mail order by clicking this link or the image above.

Like the following Edgar Rice Burroughs' 100 Year Art Chronology, this publication is funded on Kickstarter.
Also like the ERBAC project, it was quickly funded, surpassing its target goal by 500% on the second day!

Available NOW:


Speaking of which, the Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology (order link) went on sale June 2018!

ERB Chronology V4

The Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology was a huge success on Kickstarter.
And the preorder sales never slowed down after that.
With advance orders still bing shipped, the publisher has informed me that the first printing has ALREADY SOLD OVER 70% of its run!
A second printing is already being planned.

Edgar Rice Burroughs' 100 Year Art Chronology -- Kicktraq Mini

You can read all the details here: >https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/600766964/edgar-rice-burroughs-100-year-art-chronology

I've also set up a page filled with teaser images: Edgar Rice Burrough's 100 Year Art Chronlogy


The online magazine Castalia House has run a series of interviews with Cirsova authors, and mine is now online here.

The interviewer, Scott Cole, asked a lot of great questions that covered not just my stories in Cirsova magazine, but also about my Wild Stars comics and books, my experiences as a comic book retailer, and about my Edgar Rice Burroughs 100 Year Art Chronology.


Cirsova #5

The Bears of 1812

Michael Tierney has a new story in Cirsova Magazine #5 (Spring 2017), which is now out for sale!

My story in Cirsova #2 was Shark Fighter, a psychological horror story.
This one is a historical fantasy titled The Bears of 1812.

The Bears of 1812 features native American legend Sacagawea from the Lewis & Clark Expedition, and her involvement in the War of 1812. As I told the editor; "The stuff you'll think I made up is the stuff that really happened." There were many incredible historical events during that time, and Sacagawea's history easily weaved right into the heart of it. 

Michael Tierney -- April 5, 2017

You'll find every video on the website, plus many new videos showing major events like the censorship battle with the state legislature, the Death of Superman, and the Bankruptcy of Marvel Comics.

Shark Fighter

Cirsova #2
Featuring Michael Tierney's new short story, Shark Fighter,
we currently have a limited supply of each cover of the paperback editions at both stores
.
Shark Fighter is a tale of horror beneath the deep blue sea, see if you can guess the Wild Stars connection. It's tenuous, but it is there.
For more information about this issue, visit this link.

Another Cirsova contributor mentioned my Shark Fighter story during his YouTube GeekGab podcast (visit this link).
Check it out starting at the 25 minute mark and continuing through when the host shouts:
"Stop the bus! A guy's fighting a shark!"
"Stop the bus!"
I'll take that review!
"Well written and there is a powerful emotional punch at its core."

"...not light fare, but .... meaty and gripping adventure"

"a grim sort of redemption"
