My new weird western novella, Death Comes to Grandstone, is now available from all major ebook retailers and in paperback from Amazon.
Bounty hunter Gentry McNamara has come to the dying gold rush town of Grandstone in search of a bounty.
But this no ordinary bounty. And Gentry is no ordinary bounty hunter.
An ancient evil has taken hold in Grandstone, rotting the town from within, growing stronger with each passing day. When Gentry’s arrival forces it out of hiding, it will unleash a force so brutal that even a hunter as seasoned as Gentry might not be able to stop it.
And if he can’t, the evil lurking beneath Grandstone will consume the world.

What was once BrianJarrett.com is now MusingPanda.com.
Why? I’ve been focusing the last six years on my fiction writing, which I publish under Brian J. Jarrett. I wanted to disambiguate my name, both with and without the middle initial. So now I use brianjjarrett.com for my books and brianjarrett.com as my professional programmer site.
But I didn’t want to get rid of all this content, especially with the amount of time and effort I put into the articles. I also wanted to keep the Nitro scene and Flood stuff alive and kicking. So I bought a new domain name and moved everything here.
What’s up with the name? Well, this site is a place for musings. Also, I like Pandas. Put the two together and there you have it. (And the domain was available.)
Maybe I’ll even update this site a little more often. I still have those random and eclectic musings that need somewhere to go. Might as well be here.
Got a new book out…here’s the scoop:
Three years ago Tom Miller lost his entire family to a brutal serial killer. Now drowning in alcohol and haunted by the ghosts of his past, he decides one night to finally end it all.
But when he sees the face of a murdered little girl on the evening news, Tom thinks he might know who the killer is. Desperate to stop the next murder before it happens, Tom mounts his own investigation—and quickly finds himself in over his head.
When the next little girl goes missing, Tom will have to come to terms with his past and face his demons in order to track down a monster. But with time running out and his leads falling short, his chances at finding the killer are quickly diminishing.
Along with a child’s chances for survival.

My latest novel The Crossover Gene is now available at all major ebook stores (including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Apple) and in paperback through Amazon. Here’s the gist of it:
Andy Davis is nothing special. A roster of failed relationships. A magnet for dead-end jobs. Untalented and uninspired. Add in a penchant for booze and drugs and he’s headed nowhere fast.
But when two hit men try to kill him in a dark alley, Andy discovers he’s anything but average. In fact, he’s the most important person in the world.
And the parallel world next door.
This was a fun book to write. I originally started it back in 2012, but put it on hold for a couple of years while I worked on other projects. I finished it up last year and released it in October. If you like fast-paced thrillers, parallel universes and an unlikely hero’s journey then this book might just be for you.
Just going through the site after putting a new theme on it and started digging through the old Nitro scene material. Hard to believe almost twenty years have passed. I’m forty years old now with six and nine year old kids. Got a real job and everything. How did I get so old?
I was a kid back then and some of the writing clearly demonstrates that. What can I say? Follies of youth and all that. What I can say is that the sincerity is and always was there. While I’m older and wiser these days, I wouldn’t change any of it. I surely don’t regret any of it. Spectacular times and indelible memories.
Beyond the Badlands, the second installment in my Badlands Series, is now available in ebook and paperback.
Here’s the gist:
Who survived The Badlands to make it to the city by the river? Was the city truly a safe haven, or just another dead end teeming with hordes of the infected? What else is in store for those who survived?
In the dramatic second installment of Into the Badlands, the fate of the survivors and the truth about the city by the river is finally revealed. For some the journey has ended, but for those who remain, surviving the end of the world will be only the beginning.
