SFF Short Story: "Admission"
Last fall, Apex Book Company put out a call for submissions for "Upside Down," a sure-to-be-awesome anthology of short stories that invert and/or demolish popular tropes in storytelling. As it happened, I had a work-in-progress inverting the trope of a chil...

For the Record: Team OddsShark SuperContest Picks, Week 5
Despite feeling really good about my picks last week , I ended up 2-3 again, dropping me to 8-12 on the season. Loved the Bills coming through for me, but got burned again by the Jets, Cardinals and Buccaneers. Once again, though, I wasn't alone: The top fi...

Brutal, brutal, brutal, brutal, brutal. Well, okay, one fewer "brutal": I went 1-4 last week, thanks to the Lions getting three touchdowns called back, the Panthers hanging 46 on a talented 49ers defense, the Cardinals did THAT to the Buccaneers and Sam Bra...

For the Record: Team OddsShark Super Contest Picks, Week 1
So this season, OddsShark.com was kind enough to draft me onto Team OddsShark , their crew of NFL experts competing in the annual Westgate SuperContest. They flew me out to Vegas, put me up in the my-kind-of-joint Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, kept the food a...

Pain and Inhumanity at the Gas Station
"I really don't feel like talking to you right now." The young woman's voice came from somewhere behind me. I'd been flipping through late-night Twitter while a Speedway gas pump replenished my Mazda's hydrocarbon supply for the next day's field trip. My ea...

Every time Chuck Wendig pooh-poohs  talent— the searing phosphor of innate writing ability—my cheeks flush a little and my elbow skin itches. My brow furrows and my butt wiggles in my chair. Finally, inspired by an  insufferable ex-MFA instructor , Wendig w...

For the Record: Team OddsShark SuperContest Picks, Week 6
Woo-hoo! A big 4-1 week last week helped me out tremendously, bringing me up to 12-13 on the year, and within a good week of catching the guys at the top of the Team OddsShark standings. Only the Browns' mid-game trainwreck at quarterback (within their seas...

For The Record: Team OddsShark SuperContest Picks, Week 4
I wasn't the only one who had a rough Week 3; the top five most popular SuperContest picks went 0-5. The two most popular picks were the Steelers and Cardinals; I'd unfortunately picked both. My 2-3 performance dropped me to 6-9 on the season, but I've got ...

For the Record: Team OddsShark Super Contest Picks, Week 2
It's Week 2 of the NFL season, and therefore Week 2 of the Westgate SuperContest. I went 3-2 in the opening week, thanks partially to the Giants winning but not covering the hook in "one and a hook." Gah. The other loss was Washington on Monday Night Footba...

Why Donald Trump ('s candidacy) is Making America Great Again
Writey, thinky types of the political persuasion have been paying Donald Trump an awful lot of attention. Much of the media narrative involves gobsmacked wonder—both at the phenomenon of a defiantly unqualified Trump leading Republican primary polls, and th...

Politics and Religion Go to See the Movies
Teenaged me was walking out of the movie theatre, happy. I'd just seen Disney's  Hercules  with one of my two families, and I'd had a darn good time. "Great movie," I said. My stepmother shot me a scowl. "You liked  that?" Uh-oh. As a kid, you know that loo...
