Joseph D'Lacey's THE BOOK OF THE CROWMAN
I really enjoyed last year's Black Feathers , Joseph D'Lacey's first half of the saga of Gordon Black (what is it with Angry Robot Books and people named Black and blackbirds these days, by the way? It's impossible not to think of Gordon and Miriam Black as...

K.W. Jeter's MADLANDS
K.W. Jeter is probably best known (at least in my circles) as the guy who invented steampunk, or at least the guy who named it. And his Infernal Devices is one of the earliest and, for my money, best examples of the sub-genre. Others know him as an author o...

Ian Tregillis' BITTER SEEDS
If Tim Powers and H.P. Lovecraft somehow managed to reach out to one another across the dark and malevolent vastness of time and space to write a cosmic horror story set in World War II, the result might be something very like Bitter Seeds , the first volum...

Clifford Irving's FAKE! THE STORY OF ELMYR DE HORY, THE GREATEST ART FORGER OF OUR TIME
I dearly love a hoaxer, and Fake: The Story of Elmyr de Hory, The Greatest Art Forger of Our Time , Clifford Irving's I-think-mostly-true biography of the Hungarian painter Elmyr de Hory who probably at one time had more of his art in the museums and tony p...

More conspiracy hopping fun from a very, very funny writer.

Justin Robinson's GET BLANK
Justin Robinson's Fill in the Blank series has the makings of a classic except for one small but significant flaw: it is a bit too much a product of the moment, that moment being early 2014, during the grand epic swan song/swan dive of that remarkable but p...

Gene Wolfe's THE LAND ACROSS
Gene Wolfe novels should come with a set of cheat codes, I sometimes think.* For The Land Across (a literal translation of the storied place name of Transylvania, kind of, except I think a better translation of that name would probably be The Forest Across,...

J.G. Ballard's HELLO AMERICA
While the Planet of the Apes' iconic Statue of Liberty Buried In The Sand is an old favorite, I think I prefer J.G. Ballard's Lady Liberty: Navigation Hazard (see the German cover for this novel, in the lower right corner of this review), upon whose crown w...

Tony Burgess' THE n-BODY PROBLEM
It just this second hit me that the title of The n-Body Problem Tony Burgess' disturbingly memorable follow-up to the disturbingly memorable PontyPool Changes Everything is a pun in like three different ways. This weeks after I actually read the thing*. And...

Right now, I'm doing morning news on K2 radio.  The old news director went off to New York to seek his fortune. I'm the rogue interim, as they seek a new victim guy. I'm hoping they'll do that by April, so I can photograph Spring. Saratoga would be a good place to do that, especially if I can find a good guide. . .

Ian Sales' ADRIFT ON THE SEA OF RAINS
Now that I know that alternate history Cold War Apollopunk is a thing, I want more of it. Much more. Good thing Ian Sales' Adrift on the Sea of Rains is but the first of a quartet of novellas, then! As the story opens, a small band of astronauts manning a p...

Story
Tagline
The Suppertime Sonneteer, with many other ridiculous projects coming your way soon!
Introduction

I write a lot of nonsense in iambic pentameter and occasionally in prose, some of which I even share with the public. I am also a sometime comics critic and comics script-writer. I am a big risk-taker when it comes to  comics so following me on any social media you choose is a good way to find something new to read!

Bragging rights
Just published my first ebook, a curated collection of Suppertime Sonnets, and it reached as high as #10 on the highly competitive (snort) Amazon Kindle bestseller list for 20th Century American Poetry (even though all the poems were written in the 21st Century - did I mention I'm also a time traveler?)
