No, Really, I’m Writing a Novel

May 17, 2017


Now that Forest God is dead and gone, I’m dusting off Boa, New Mexico. I was much inspired by having a beer with my friend Matt Ruff who writes what can only be over-simplified as “whacky” stuff only minutes after HBO picked up his latest book Lovecraft Country to turn into a series. That helped […]

Ray Bradbury’s The Swan/Prequel to Old-Fashioned Lime-Vanilla Ice

May 17, 2017


Why I vow to never order chocolate ice cream again Like the Martian Chronicles, you can view Dandelion Wine as essentially a series of short stories set in the same milieu.

January 3, 2017

Tilton Train Yard

December 18, 2016


The other day I was going fishing with Mauro and it started to snow. Since I had gotten an underwater camera to take fish pictures, he decided he needed (a much nicer) one too, and he handed it to me to take some pictures. Never having used the camera before I was having some issues. […]
