Happy birthday to William Castle!

I wish I could have the privilege of meeting you. Partly so I could ask you to explain the plot of THE TINGLER.

Happy birthday to the Most Noble Order of the Garter, established by Edward III on this day in 1348!

Knighthood has changed in the centuries since. But Prince William was still required to smash a French guy's head with a battle-ax prior to his investure in 2009.

Time for the Ape of the Day!

Fun fact: K'Monga later complained to the bout committee that both Hawkman and the referee ignored his attempts to signal for a time out.

Fun fact: There was nothing Joe enjoyed more than teasing the lions by dangling Jill just above their reach.

Prior to this afternoon, it had been many years since I'd had root canal. Turns out it still isn't cheap, nor is it a whole lot of fun.

Fun fact: In therapy, Zobo learned that he'd always felt insecure because he was adopted, and it was this insecurity that compelled him to intervene whenever Mommy and Daddy argued.

I've said it before, and today I have reason to say it again: Nothing makes you feel young and full of life like junk mail from the Neptune Society.

This time around, if I return the card requesting more information, I can win a prepaid cremation. The information doesn't specify that it has to be my own personal carcass getting burned, If I can show up at the facility with somebody else's body and get it processed, no questions asked, this has possibilities.

Happy birthday to Disney's Animal Kingdom, which opened its gates on this day in 1998.

73 minutes later, His Majesty Numa I commanded his subjects to "hunt down and kill all humans within our borders," a turn of events that prompted Disney imagineers to rethink the design of the attraction.

Fun fact: Recently unearthed by film scholars, the first draft of the screenplay for "Ape Canyon" was a faithful adaptation of the popular comic strip "Steve Canyon." (It was the fourteenth draft that was ultimately filmed.)

Story
Tagline
I write fantasy and horror fiction.
Introduction
I'm Richard Lee Byers, the author of over thirty fantasy and horror novels including a number set in the Forgotten Realm universe. My current projects include The Brotherhood of the Griffon, an ongoing series about a mercenary (excuse me, sellsword) company in the Forgotten Realms, and The Impostor, an ongoing series that's either a superhero comic in prose or a modern version of a hero pulp depending on your frame of reference.
Bragging rights
From a recent review of The Impostor #1: Half a Hero: The Impostor #1: Half a Hero succeeds in everything that it was trying to accomplish. It was entertaining, had interesting and likable characters, an intriguing story and world, and leaves you wanting more. It’s something that I can see myself following as more of this series comes out. It’s definitely worth checking out. http://travizzt.wordpress.com/2011/09/03/the-impostor-1-half-a-hero-by-richard-lee-byers/
