You can read all of The Staff of Moses online for free, right here at my website.

This is a bit of an experiment. I’m taking a risk by giving away one of my most popular books, but the plain truth is that I don’t make my living from writing (yet), so at most I am losing out a couple of free pizzas a month.

If you enjoy The Staff of Moses, please consider buying it on Amazon (print or ebook) or ordering it from your local bookstore. By supporting my writing you get that warm fuzzy feeling of helping an independent author move one step closer to making a living from his art. Oh, and you also get a version that can be read on an ebook reader and has no ads.

Each chapter of the book is presented as a separate post, which has been paginated to display slightly more text than you would see on an average printed page. Readers are welcome to post comments on each chapter.
