What's new?

Feb. 5, 2023 -- One down, one to go! The hardcover edition of The Prophet and the Dove is live at! In addition to the novel, afterward and glossary, this edition includes a 57-page study guide. Written for individual or small-group usage, this guide:

• Breaks down each chapter by its biblical and historical roots. In this, the guide works in tandem with the novel’s glossary, which provides general backgrounds for the names, places, and other specific elements raised in its narrative.  

• Evaluates key plot elements while posing discussion questions, all to help readers consider these points from a contemporary, personal perspective. 

In this way the novel and guide may combine to serve as a Bible study, a Sunday school lesson series, or a package of devotionals. You may find this edition at or

As for Lion's of Judah, the novel is undergoing its final evaluation. It should be released by the end of the month!

Feb. 1, 2023 -- Look what arrived in the mail! That's a hardcover, in case you can't tell. And if you don't recognize what else is different, look just under the title. The series logo also is in a new space here, but that probably will change. Overall this proof is in great shape, so it may not take long at all to get this new edition on the market. This will complete a project three years in the making, although to be honest, I expect the study guide to go through continued improvements as more small groups and individuals put it to use.

Meanwhile, the final edits to Lions of Judah are being made while the above hardcover advances. They should both hit the market before Easter!

Oct. 23, 2022 -- This comes with a lot of answered prayers! Last year I finished the first edit of this novel, identifying several things I needed to fix. Praying for solutions, I tackled preparations for the 40th-anniversary edition of The Spawn of Fashan. Its surprising success led me to move all my books to Amazon, which directed me into second editions of God's Furry Angels and The Road to Renewal, plus new e-book editions, that beloved GFA hardcover, and the upcoming annotated hardcover of R2R! During all that, I received inspirations that addressed all the problems I had with Lions of Judah -- and TODAY, finally, I completed that second edit! Hurray! Now, as I comb through the book to update the appendix, the third edit should flow into the proof copies and retail release!

Press Release!

July 27, 2022 -- For those who didn't know, Fashan Books has released new editions of the Kirby Lee Davis novels God's Furry Angels and The Road to Renewal"This should solve distribution and pricing concerns we've suffered since their original release four years ago," said Davis. "This move also allowed us to finally offer God's Furry Angels in a large, full-color hardcover, pretty much as we originally intended."

Feb.  27, 2022 -- Fashan Books began a dynamic change in the distribution of our books! With our success on Amazon, we canceled our other printing arrangements to focus on the giant retailer's global platform. A new second-edition of God's Furry Angels made its print debut Feb. 27 with a cleaner layout and lower price. The ebook soon followed. A second edition of The Road to Renewal came out later that spring, along with a full-color hardcover of God's Furry Angels. We now will focus on the second book in The Jonah Cycle, Lions of Judah.

Sept. 9, 2021 -- The Spawn of Fashan: 40th Anniversary Edition was released on In the USA, the paperback ranked #312 on its first Fantasy Gaming book sales list. It then went downhill, closing its first week at #1,080. But with its first day on Amazon Japan, the book hit #1 on both the Foreign Language Fantasy Gaming book sales and wish lists. After several days in the first or second position, the paperback ended its first week at #20 on the sales chart, #3 on that wish list, and #21 on the overall SF/fantasy book wish list! Spawn ended its second week at #50 on the Foreign Language Fantasy Gaming sales list, but remained in the top 10 on the Foreign Language Fantasy Gaming wish list, at #8. This second week marked when Amazon integrated corrective Day 2 tweaks to the published edition, which promises to turn all those first-week sales into collector items. Writer Kousaku Akano also started work that second week on a Japanese translation for those who purchase copies; that may account for another surge in sales, lifting Spawn to #4 on Amazon Japan's Foreign Language Fantasy Gaming sales list.  .

Feb. 16, 2021 -- I just finished the first thorough edit of Lions of Judah, my sequel to The Prophet and the Dove. It took longer than I anticipated, at times stretching my patience. I expect a few more passes will follow, but hopefully these will proceed well. Perhaps it will debut around Easter…. or else I may jump to Book Four. Interesting, huh?
