Pages in the Dark

Welcome! I’m J. C. Weston, and this is the site I use to share my writing. I write novel-length stories mostly falling into the science fiction and fantasy umbrella, with a focus on well-crafted plots and believable characters. I split my writing between serials and individual novels – every Saturday morning, the next chapter of the serial I’m currently working on is published here, while individual novels are published for purchase whenever they’re done.
Currently, this site is home to…

… this is the standout hero story that reminds one of lighthearted marvel and dc comics … always an addicting read.” Darch
