Novels and stories by Bruce Davis
I am an author, mainly of science fiction. I am also a Trauma surgeon and do a wide range of general surgery as well. I've been at it for 30 years now and am something of a dinosaur in the field. One of the last generalists. The website is divided into pages for my fiction, both short and long, and pages for various essays and observations - Ranting and Tales From the OR - where I try to provide some insight into the life and thoughts of a surgeon. My newest novel, PLATINUM MAGIC, is out with my new publisher BRICK CAVE MEDIA. It is my first foray into fantasy, a mystery taking place in a modern world very much like our own, but also very different. Get it at BRICK CAVE BOOKS.
My third novel in the PROFIT series in now online. PROFIT AND LOSS is a collection of three interlinked stories from the PROFIT logbooks. Zack and the crew now run respectable charter business. It's making them a good living, but Zack chafes at the saneness of it. While on Highpoint, he looks up an old acquaintance and suddenly life becomes interesting, although not in a good way.  THIEVES PROFIT, the second in the series, picks up a couple of years after GLOWGEMS FOR PROFIT. Zack and his crew are still barely scraping by, so when he gets an offer that will pay all of his outstanding debt and save the ship from foreclosure, it seems too good to pass up. Even if it involves a little thievery. As usual, nothing is as it seems. Soon he's on the run from the Feds, the Red Dragons and a shadowy assassin with whom he shares a common history. Get the books from BRICK CAVE BOOKS or Amazon.
My novel GLOWGEMS FOR PROFIT is also available. It's the first in the PROFIT series. Go to or Brick Cave Books to download it. Read a sample on the page here and see if you like it.
The Chain Story is online. A project started by Michael A Stackpole, it is a hub of linked stories and author's websites designed to showcase the author's work and leverage audience by exposing readers to a wide range of writers. I am honored to have been asked to contribute a story, especially when I see that Mike and most of the writers in the project have published multiple novels already. There's a link at the top of the page to my story and from there you can explore the rest of the stories on the hub. Best of all, it's FREE.
