Blog tour

Trying something new. Back when I blogged and it was considered cool (hahaha) in the early 2000s, I got tagged in a couple things (mostly comics stuff). I mean, this was back when I was on Blogspot which was basically forever ago. But I saw Andrea was looking for tagees, so I volunteered. You can […]


So I’ve been wracking my brain, trying to figure out why things are the way they are. Not everything, mind you. I don’t have the time to compose a supertheory of super-everything. But when I spend time in a place or situation, my brain gets to considering how it got there, the way it is […]


This afternoon saw me put to bed a project that’s been hounding me since August. It doesn’t matter that I still don’t think it’s complete or that it’s only good in patches. I’ve done what I can do to smooth them. Someone else’s hands will be on it now. But this one’s been a monster. […]

The Terrible Tome

An imaginary game world from an imaginary game.

FOG-Con 2014

Ah, one of my infamous travelogues/con reports. It’s been a little while. FOG-Con 2014 I’m still pretty new at science fiction/fantasy shows (as opposed to comic shows, which were old hat for me in 1990 and 2008 as an exhibitor). Still getting used to things. Still figuring out how to talk to other humans without […]

Writing advice

Write. Rewrite. Fail. Learn. Do it again. No amount of posting memes about how shouldn’t you be writing or hashtagging your twitter updates will substitute. There’s the secret. Go ahead.

Never Enough

I know. I don’t post here enough. What I really want is a Tumblr front end for my own WP blog. I should look into that. Anyways, now that I’m here, I should probably fill you folks in on what’s been going on. 1) Surgery. Minor surgery but a major inconvenience for the last month […]

BLUE HIGHWAY influence map

Because a couple asked about it. It’s not really in order. Deal.   THE ROAD WARRIOR/MAD MAX Immediate and visceral impact on fourteen or fifteen year old me. Semi-alien desert vistas, V-8s being operated with no sense of safety or human restraint, punks on motorbikes and evil cops in leather and everything good in the […]

Print book updates

Okay, so what’s happened so far? Last week, BLUE HIGWAY got released by the Createspace store. It’s also on Amazon, but honestly, buy it from Createspace, since I see a bigger slice out of that.   While you weren’t looking, I went ahead and did POD versions of both TUG ON THE RIBBON (featuring […]
