 (Painted in, uh, 1986 maybe?)

Friendly content update. Let's enjoy some free content. I won't even ask for a penny in the tip jar.

So the irony of me landing a sale in Lovecraft-inspired/weird/cosmic horror fiction is, well, cosmic-level. But then so is the survival and...

I'm trying to think about when it was all possible. When the last time that was.

(San Francisco Bay out to the ocean, from the Golden Gate, 2004) 

A couple days ago, I turned in final edits on my first novel. Okay, not my first novel, but the first novel I've written that will be published by someone other than myself. I'm sure there's a little clea...

Thoughts on SAVAGELAND

Spoilers for this film and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD follow. You've been warned.

Here's the trailer for SAVAGELAND:

I don't know if you know this, but I'm usually a big fan of zombie flicks. At least when they're done well. And I'll tolerate them, to...

Last pictures from the Southland. There may be some commentary with these.

Note that this is the only place I was chased out of for taking pictures. "Can't do that. Not since 9/11," the guard told me in a voice that reached for stern but was more perpelexed.

Who'd want t...
