It’s that season again. The trees are being steadily shorn of leaves, but the grass beneath them grows, having slept out the summer. The pumpkins are being put away, whether in pieces after vandalism or whole and unloved past their expiration date. It’s November. It’s that time.
National Novel Writing Month is […]
Let’s get the news out of the way first.
1) I signed a contract yesterday. Kind of a big deal for me because it’s not something I’ve done very often. Last time was a story for Blizzard Entertainment, which actually has yet to be printed (meaning that it won’t ever be.)
2) It’s for […]
2016 continues to be an unpredictable mother of a year. I know, for everyone, right? But me and my family have had a few punches thrown that we didn’t see coming, and payments from others are coming due.
One thing that I probably didn’t talk up enough was appearing in TOMORROW’S CTHULHU from Broken […]
Teased this one earlier this week so I should actually commit to it. Life got in the way for a little while, which is why I’m doing it now and not a couple days ago when it was fresh.
So I was listening to one of those shows that turns up on NPR (yes, […]
Readers over the last year or so will note a decided edge in my voice, which rises and falls at times but never falls away, not completely.
I want to say that it’s time to put that edge away, but there is no occasion for that, probably because I’m backed into a […]
Yeah, there haven’t been any updates for the last six months by my or anybody else’s reckoning. Sue me. No subscriptions to fulfill, no contracts to honor and who even reads plain old blogs anymore? Gimme that branded content!
So in the time that’s passed, I’ve watched my 48th come and go, tried […]
I was born between the assassination of JFK and the Apollo moon landing. That’s usually how I mark myself by American events. I could get a little more specific, but this covers the bases, both high and low. Granted, these happenings don’t have the punch that they once did. When I was younger, it […]
Good news. I’ll spare you the kind of entry that I’ve been doing for the last several months. Tell your friends. No serious issues here. Nope.
Instead I’ll talk a little about my experiences going to three different, even very different comic shows in the last month and a half or so. Long Beach […]
That being a thing that pretends to be another thing in order to find itself some benefit. Doppleganger, mimic, cuckoo, what have you. A thing that pretends to be another thing. Like the dog in Carpenter’s movie of the same name.
It’s tough to pretend to be a thing that you’re not. At least […]
Well, that was fun, I guess. Looking back on that takedown of the first episode of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD.
Fun but pointless when you get down to it. No value to it other than lancing a boil. Probably should bear my own admonition to do better in cases like this.
Been behind on […]
