Greg van Eekhout, a favorite author of mine, has written many, many short stories, as well as three novels.  Norse Code is an adult urban fantasy about Ragnarok in modern-day LA.  His two middle-grade novels, Kid vs. Squid and The Boy at the End of the World, have been thoroughly enjoyed by young and old alike.  Greg is currently working on a new trilogy of books based on his short story, "The Osteomancer's Son".
