The first John Golden novella, John Golden: Freelance Debugger was released in February, 2014, followed my a sequel John Golden and the Heroes of Mazaroth in August. More novellas are planned with a full-length novel in the works.

     John Golden: Freelance Debugger 

     John Golden and the Heroes of Mazaroth 
  • Action Girl: Meghan is one, at least in character.
    • Sarah becomes one, sort of, with her very male character.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Lord Anaxomander's goal in-game.
  • Antivillain: Lord Anaxomander is a Card-Carrying Villain but that's just because he was made that way. When given the option to defect to the side of good, he does.
  • But Thou Must!: The fact adventurers naturally obey quest-givers in MMOs is exploited by John.
  • Captain Ersatz: Heroes of Mazaroth is World of Warcraft.
  • Dark Action Girl: Kelara is an Expy of Sylvanas.
  • Death Is a Slap on the Wrist: John is killed in Mazaroth. He then respawns. The experience freaks him out a little.
  • Evil Overlord: John finds one living in a finance officer's servers. He's a refugee from Heroes of Mazaroth.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Sarah puts down Heroes of Mazaroth the entire game, yet suspiciously seems to know a lot about it. It's because she's a die-hard player with maxed levels and gear.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Kelara is this, being a WOW-esque villain.
  • Rainbow Pimp Gear: Sarah's character in Heroes wears a hat like this because of its stat buffs.
