I haven’t read much DC at all let alone Pre-Crisis, but Chuck Dixon turned me onto writer and editor Archie Goodwin, stating Goodwin is to him, the greatest comic writer of all time. I read some of his shorts he wrote for Steve Ditko from Creepy/Eerie, and found a book “Tales of the Batman” on […]
I want to thank author Hans Schantz for running this sale as he does every year, one of the best guys in the business and someone worth following if you don’t already. But every memorial day he runs a big sale with a TON of books in it, by authors who are good friends of […]
I’ve been reading a lot of golden age comics lately, and much like the sci-fi of the period, I find it far more refreshing to read than anything after this point. I think with the 1960s, we started to see an exit of Christian and “normal” creators from all of these fields, and an entrance […]
Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? It’s no secret that I’m in love with the old pulps of science fiction from the Golden Age. The way they hold action paramount, have incredible heroes who defy all odds, and maintain a sense of wonder and excitement about every aspect of the book — it inspires […]
The trends over the last decades have been pushing further and further into what authors love to call “realism” — but is more a dark, bleak outlook where there’s no hope. It’s nihilism, but taking “real” parts of what we experience as humans, the worst hardest ones, and shoving those into stories. It creates heroic, […]
I’m watching through Star Trek Deep Space 9 with the family and I was shocked to see an episode, “Progress” where the Bajoran government an the Federation come in to try to steal a man’s farm for “the good of the people.” The man refuses to read, and interestingly, throughout the epsiode, he’s portrayed as […]
One of the major influences on my wanting to do science fiction was Star Trek: Deep Space 9 (along with Babylon 5, as both were on the air simultaneously). Something about this show really upped the ante from what Star Trek was on TNG. I know part of it was Roddenberry didn’t allow any starfleet […]
We’re in the last 17 hours of the RoboToad: Rekt Manlet campaign. The day’s gone really well so far with a lot of people rushing to back, partially because of the deal my ashcan artist made — if we hit 150 backers, he’ll randomly give away a piece of the original art to one of […]
For the last several days, every major youtuber from ComicsGate has been high fiving as if Kickstarter somehow is going to go away and IndieGoGo will be the greatest crowdfund site of all time. They’ve built up a narrative over the last two plus years that Kickstarter is “SJW” and IndieGoGo is “good” to try […]
Welcome back everyone. It’s been about three weeks since I’ve blogged, and I hope you’ve missed it as much as I have. As far as what I’ve been up to — I’ve been stuck in quarantine with the rest of you. Which you might think would lead to more writing because I’ve less to do, […]
My new site went live today so I’m just posting a new test post to see how this funcitons. So far it looks pretty slick compared to my last one — I know you can’t see the backend interface but it’s pretty great. Images are easy to post Even cooler, I can wrap the text […]

Don’t you wrongthink by observing that there are men who are naturally in a different position on the sociosexual hierarchy than others. Alpha is too hot for Amazon! This didn’t come from me trying to post a book but from another author who writes steamy romance novels — she, of course, wants potential readers to […]
