I started watching Legion last week. It's a gorgeous show, but I have one issue with it. In the comics, David is Israeli. He is the son of a holocaust survivor and a survivor of a terrorist attack himself. Here, he's a right proper waspy sort of fellow.

It feels a bit like whitewashing, doesn't it?

My friend +Salome Jones is calling for stories that combine cosmic or supernatural horror and Trump. If this tickles your fancy, shoot her a submission. I've worked with her in the past and she's one of the nicest and fairest folks out there.

I wrote a story titled Happy Birthday about half a year ago and in an absolute coincidence it was published on my mother's birthday. Fancy my surprised when I saw an e-mail with this subject from an unfamiliar sender... :)

Originally, the word jihad meant striving towards a goal without consideration to how distant or even impossible that goal is. For as long as I can remember myself, I've always been on a jihad, success or failure being immaterial as long as the goal was clear. Recently, I started wondering: how does life without a jihad looks like. How does one live without a clear goal?
