Hi, I'm Robert McKinney, and I write a lot of urban fantasy and science fiction.

When people ask me what that means, I like to tell them about dragons and a whole lot of spaceships.

Here's a secret, though.

There are no dragons, and very few spaceships here. 

I do have this, however.


So yeah, sorry about the spaceships and dragons. I've made up for their lack with some of the most addictive urban fantasy and science fiction that you'll see today. 

If that sounds like something you want, then join our community to get secret audio-dramas, never before seen stories, and even more treats sent to your inbox each week.

QUESTIONS
What is Patreon, anyway?
Patreon is a way to support creators by becoming a "Patron" of their art. You can send a bit money toward me on a per-project basis so I can do things like eat and write more stories for you to enjoy. Donating through Patreon means that you also get access to bonus content—like voting for which story becomes my next audio drama - that aren't available for non-Patrons.

How often will you be releasing stories?
A few times a month to start, and hopefully once a week by the end of the year.

Can I stop donating any time I want?
Definitely. You can start or stop donations at any time. You can even set monthly limits on how much you'd like to donate. This option is super useful for those on a budget.

Do you ever write anywhere else?
I have a few books on Kindle, and a diesel-pulp fiction audio drama that I'm pretty damn proud of over at PseudoPod - a great podcast for horror stories. 

What the hell is diesel-pulp fiction?
Diesel-pulp fiction is a sub-genre of dieselpunk. Think noir crime thrillers mixed with mad scientist WWII-era tech. It's a world where airship raids and zombie trench warfare won't keep hard-boiled detectives and femme-fatales from trying to make ends meet. 

If you want to try out my diesel-pulp fiction before becoming a patron, you can always check out my FREE collection of diesel-pulp fiction stories here ... 


Dude, chill with the diesel pulp fiction
No promises.

Flashbacks, alternate universes, ships, you name it, you get it (within reason). Honestly, you’re better off checking out AO3 or donating to charity because this tier is not worth the money

AUDIO UPGRADES

At 50 bucks a story, I'll be able to afford some quality audio recording equipment and assistance. We're talking audio editors, microphones, pop filters, and maybe even a professional voice actor or two.
