A Balm In Gilead

One year. It’s been one year. One year further from an unbroken heart. And yet… One year closer to being with you again. It’s going to be a good day.  I remember that.  Sometimes I have to remind myself of that. You taught me well.  More than you will...

The Death of Nature Documentaries

Once upon a time nature documentaries were designed to inform and inspire.  They brought our collective attention to the wonders and mysteries of this incredible world that God has given us to hold in stewardship for future generations.  As the father of a young daughter who believes that she...

A Very Meta New Year

This is not a daily blog.  Your time is valuable, and I’ll not waste it by filling up empty posts with pointless material. Posts arrive when something you might find interesting crosses my path or my synapses.  Generally, I try to post a few times per week, but as...

Making Meme Magic Real

My twit feed automagically deletes posts after a month or so.  That means a lot of my best meme work vanishes out into the cloud beyond my reach.  Here’s a year end post for archiving the stuff I can’t be bothered to sort and save to a hard drive. ...

StoryHackery: Island Rescue

Spencer E. Hart hits the fourth issue of StoryHack with a nice little adventure that delivers exactly what it offers. I have been following Spencer’s work for a while, in both this and the pages of Cirsova Magazine, and with this story of a kidnapping gone wrong, it’s safe...

More Hackery of the Story Variety

The always reliable Misha Burnett tosses the reader into a two man fight to the death in an arena that makes modem day San Fransisco look like as clean as an operating theater.  StoryHack Four continues to stroke my ego by placing my work alongside greats like Misha. He’s...

Pulp Modern: Tech Noir

New review of a surprisingly hopeful collection of grim and dark tales of future tech.  I picked this title up on a lark – my own WIP is a retro-future adventure, and I wanted to immerse myself in a host of styles to help nail the mood.  Expecting the...
