Spider-Man: Homecoming Official Trailer #2

I liked Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. I disliked Mark Webb's with Andrew Garfield. I thought it was unnecessary. When news broke that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios reached a licensing agreement and there were plans for another Spider-Man movie with yet another new actor I just sighed and ignored the news. I didn't care. However, it … Continue reading Spider-Man: Homecoming Official Trailer #2

On My Nightstand

In the spirit of blogging more often I'm sharing a snapshot of my nightstand as it looks now. I'm way behind on my reading. I'm not even going to mention what's waiting for me on my kindle.

Alas, I never … Continue reading Who was Sir Julius Vogel?

Skelos – The Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy

A few months ago, I supported a Kickstarter campaign for the first issue of Skelos: The Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy. The campaign was a massive success, receiving $19,318 from 499 backers after setting a modest goal of only $2,000. Massive success is indeed accurate, but then, it shouldn't come as a surprise. Skelos … Continue reading Skelos – The Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy

I’ve Been Nominated for the Sir Julius Vogel Award

Or more precisely, my three short stories in These Broken Worlds have been nominated for the Sir Julius Vogel Award.  In 'A Tale of Two Moons,' an alien longs for her destroyed homeworld. In 'The Day the Sky Burned,' I give a ground zero view of the day the Great Alien War broke out, and in … Continue reading I’ve Been Nominated for the Sir Julius Vogel Award
