aDarkNeonDying_cover_sWriting as Jon Kaneko-James, The Other  Side Books have released A Dark Neon Dying, an Occult, Cyberpunk Fantasy set in earth’s far future, when 20th century history is a distant memory.

A far future where science and the occult have grown together.

A rainsoaked, lightless planet at the edge of the solar system.

An ancient inhuman evil.

New Paris is the jewel in the crown of the Galacta Corporation: recreating historic cities on the Terraformed moon of Europa.

Their chief attraction is the Performance Artists: glamorous adventurers who exploit the constitution to make the illegal legal.

Renard and Ducoult were the stars of the scene. Now Renard has returned from retirement, financially desperate and fatigued with his former life.

Ducoult is a broken woman. Disfigured at the finale of her and Renard’s greatest caper, and paralyzed by trauma, she hides in the City’s poorest district with her clockwork family.

But the world hasn’t finished with them yet. A final job. A good deed for the wrong reasons. Something terrible flitting at the edge of human consciousness. Renard and Ducoult will be drawn together in a fight that will either save New Paris, or unleash a horror on uncountable worlds.

A Dark Neon Dying is available electronically for £2.99 from The Other Side Books and from the Amazon Kindle Store. A print edition will be out later this year.


Writing as Jon Chant, Jon Kaneko-James brings Great Fire, a history-based urban fantasy for 9-12 year old readers.

Esteban was born with Chronomancy, magic that lets him control time. Visions are a normal thing for Esteban, until he’s dragged out of bed by a dream about his best friend Danny at the centre of a magical inferno. The Monument, the two hundred foot monument to the Great Fire of London, has been blasted apart and something has escaped from a prison made using the streets of the city of London itself.

With only the unbelievably bolshy and persistent Connie for help, Esteban has less than twenty four hours to find  Danny and recapture the spirit that burned London: the Great Fire.

Great Fire is priced at £7.99, and is available from, or direct from Mogzilla Books.
