Strange Weather

I debated whether to write about the recent eclipse crossing North America*, figuring everyone’s jumping on that bandwagon. I will say that what I predicted would happen didn’t, much to my pleasant surprise. “Prediction?” you ask. Yes, I predicted ou...

Rain, Rain on the (Wasted) Plain

So what is there to do? Well, for one, write! I’m knee-deep in the revision for Umbra’s sequel* with plans to get it out sometime this year. I’ve also revisited playing Wasteland 2, just to “stay in the groove” of the post-apocalyptic genre. It’s… ok...

It Comes In Threes

A little while back I had to work around a family emergency, and anyone who knows me knows my priorities. Well, in two new family emergencies in just as many weeks. Without divulging too much detail, let’s just say I have a whole new respect for full...

Another Autumn Day

I had a whole lot of trouble deciding what to write about today. It’s cold. It’s the middle of November. I am knee-deep in a revision of the cyberpunk detective noir story and I will be happy when it’s all done and announced as being ready for public...
