I'm making a real effort to get back to writing some fiction. It's been too long since my last novel. So I put together a little mailing list so I can tell people about my progress, which motivates me to do more. (It's why I serialized my first novel on my blog as I wrote it.)

And as a perk, if you sign up, I'll send you a free ebook copy of my short story collection, Animus. (Which has a story featuring the main character of my next book.)

When the Greeks spoke of akrasia, they had in mind the difference between that which is in my Netflix queue and in my viewing history.

I got frustrated with the nonsense plotting and characters of the Hannibal TV show. But recognize it as magical realism and it's way better.

It's pretty nebulous. But all I really mean is, Hannibal doesn't work if you see it as taking place in the real world. It makes little sense, the characters aren't convincing, and events happen that simply, well, couldn't.

But if it's taking place not in the real world, but in a world just removed from it, where strange things can happen just because, then it works a whole lot better. It's more like a twisted Wonderland than a strict police procedural.

Six Tales of Crime and Terror Animus is a collection of six short stories, covering everything from mystery to thriller to science fiction. I’m particularly happy with the first story, “Snowed In,” and the last, “Old Lady Prideaux’s Terrible Menagerie.”…

I blogged about the war on drugs and the immorality of those who prosecute it.

In the four years getting my literature degree, not once did a professor discuss an author's plotting technique. Why such marginalization?

You youngins getting all frustrated playing Flappy Bird got nothing to complain about. In my day we had to play Ghosts n’ Goblins.
