“The Dreaming Wind” at Podcastle

Because of a mix-up, I ended up recording a podcast of Jeffrey Ford’s “The Dreaming Wind” when I was really supposed to record “The Annals of Eelin-Ok”, which I later recorded and which appeared on Podcastle. Paul Tevis was the official reader for “The Dreaming Wind”, but since it was already recorded, Rachel Swirsky went ahead and posted both of them.

So, to my surprise, you can now hear my reading of “The Dreaming Wind” (along with Paul’s) over at Podcastle.

Jeffrey Ford is one of my favorite writers and it was my pleasure to get to read not one, but two of his wonderful stories.

Raining Fire – Coming July 18, 2017!


Raining Fire, the third and final book in the Ben Gold series, will be released on July 18, 2017. This book ties up the story begun in Falling Sky leading to an explosive conclusion. Available for pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble now.

Rising Tide -Out now!


Rising Tide, the sequel to Falling Sky, was released on October 6, 2015. Publisher's Weekly said, "Khanna crafts a terrifyingly dismal picture of the future, raising the stakes by gradually stripping Ben of friends and support while throwing him into increasingly dire situations. His worldbuilding remains solid and unsettling, and he never loses sight of the human element. The cliffhanger ending is sure to leave readers on the edges of their seats, panting for resolution."

Falling Sky – Out now!


Falling Sky, my first novel, came out October 7, 2014 from Pyr. It's an adventure story set in a post-apocalyptic future with airships. Publisher's Weekly called it a "solid and memorable debut" while Library Journal gave it a starred review and named it Debut of the Month. For more information, please click here.
