No Debate: Separating the Art and the Artist

Art just isn’t that important. I should probably qualify that, huh? I don’t like writers, I detest authors, and I have nothing but contempt for genre fiction as a community, so I was completely unaware of fantasy powerhouse author Marion Zimmer Bradley’s fucked up history until literally yesterday when I read someone tweeting about it. That led me to this post by Deirdre Saoirse Moen and this equally or even worse post by Moen on the same subject. You can…

Epic SLINGERS Reshuffle & Thanks

Kids, I’m not going to lie, it has been a rough few weeks here at the Motherf’n Wellspring of Violent Creativity HQ. Issues ranging from technological to medical have ravaged my daily life, deadlines, and general badassery in the extreme. It has also, tragically, led to my decreased presence on Twitter, a blow to global social media from which I fear it may never recover. And just when I thought I was catching up… new disaster hits.

He chose my short story “Sundae” (specifically the title character) as a side project while working on his design thesis,…

It will be EVEN MORE WORTH IT. Hey, kids. Today you’re supposed to be buying, downloading, and reading ebook #3 in my Slingers series, The Victim Hold. It is with the deepest regret and shame I am announcing that won’t happen. I’m delaying the release of the ebook one week. It…

Rowlf: Gravel-Voiced Baron of Anthropomorphic Angst

Late of evening past on Twitter I randomly began espousing my love for my all-time favorite Muppet character, master pianist and international hound of mystery, the gravel-voiced anchor of the Muppet cadre himself… Rowlf. What followed was an equally random yet brief, powerful narrative that has since become possibly my favorite thing I have ever tweeted. And although many folks obviously share my fandom, and also appreciated the exploration of Rowlf’s possible backstories, it was late as shit and most…
