For the record, that title is taken from a Sisters of Mercy bootleg recorded at a show in 1985. I'll probably have something to say about that year, as it's the year I graduated high school and entered college and a bigger world but still as a little boy, just walking...

So now that I've given away the secret of writing a novel, let's talk about what I didn't give away.

But first, my steps to writing a novel. They're very simple steps. Honest. Anyone can do them.

1) Ruminate on the idea and plot for a couple-three months. Jot out notes.

Okay, let's take come care with the personal brand this time. 

I love horror. I love all things horror. Let me reinforce your love of horror.

There. All good? Put the hatchet down. Careful with that axe, Eugene.

Hey there. Another piece of free fiction for you all. This one from MY DROWNING CHORUS, which will likely have to be cut in the interests of space, but honestly, I can't predict anything that's going on right now.

So, I came across this and maybe it's of some historical interest.

Background. The year is 2003, and I'm a regular attendee of the San Diego Comic Con and it being the time of the nascent comics blogosphere and I'm writing things that I want to promote, I offer my labor...

So this here's a piece of fiction that I wrote for one of those anthology calls. Yeah, it didn't get accepted. You're as shocked as I am.

It's a shorter bit of a much longer work called CINDY SAYS, but that title can still stick here. Yes, it's part of HAZELAND/QUEEN OF...

From 1981. Taken on my mom's Pentax SLR (which I couldn't use any more even if I still had it because I can't focus a split-ring due to my vision -- that or I'd need coke-bottle-bottom glasses to do so.)

I have the film negatives still. I think. But no prints, so this i...

Film shot, taken in the kitchen of my old home in San Diego, probably 1996.
