His work focuses on character revelation and multifaceted conflicts nestled within science fiction and fantasy settings.

BOOKS BY WILLIAM LJ GALAINI:
Watch for the Books 2 and 3 in the “Hellbound” series of steampunk sci-fi/fantasy novels to release soon: Sparks from a Cruel Grindstone on 3 May 2021; and Patron Saint of Wrong on 7 June 2021.
They come from the smoky depths of Hell’s pit. Remnants of the shattered Pious Legion, these hateful castoffs of Earth’s Roman Empire, seek to conquer. Armed with maddening gas, Maximinus Thrax’s airships swarm the skies like vengeful locusts, reducing entire populations to ash.
For Boudica, the forgotten Queen of the Iceni, it’s a familiar fate. Having failed against Nero on Earth, her civilization was wiped from history due to her backfired efforts of liberation.
As Thrax’s assault eliminates the peaceful enclaves of New Dis, what can the failed warrior queen do to protect her city, the innocent peoples within, and her beloved friends? Will Boudica shake off her anonymous refuge and crushing shame to face the Romans once more, or collapse into the dust of history once more?
Desperate and despondent, Yitz struggles forward to find Adina’s heart.
The final pieces have been played and the architect of New Dis’s upheaval has been revealed. With Hephaestion indisposed and Boudica missing, few heroes remain to rectify the oppression promised by this new enemy. Who will face them? Who will lock horns and spar with this mighty power of industry, finance, corruption, and hubris?
Yitz, determined to rescue his wife Adina from her captors, finds himself in the precarious position of both leader and savior—not just for his love, but for all of New Dis. Leading a motley crew of misfits, the troubled and timid husband delves into Aztec horrors and mechanized war machines to befriend demons and forge alliances. He must not only save the future of New Dis, but hold his Adina once more.
And stay tuned for more about books 4 and 5, also in the works and coming in 2022: An End to Ice and Sorrow and Beneath the Titan’s Stride.
