On Writing Erotica

Recently I've dipped by toe into the pool of erotica, writing a series of stories set in a swinger club that I call, appropriately enough, Tales from the Club.  The stories aren't housed on wordpress - they contain very adult content, so I have them on a certain website that allows such things.  I won't...

Hospitals suck

I was recently in the hospital for heart related issues.  The hospital I went to somehow didn't have a proper cardiac care unit, so I had to be transferred, in the rain, in the middle of rush hour traffic.  My IV was put in improperly, and I was starved for a day and a half... Continue Reading →

Why must we be human?

Why must we be human, with all the flaws and failings?  Having to live and die, facing the mountains of pain and torment of our years often times alone.  How many can say that their lives have more good times than bad?  What calculus must be performed to truly balance the scales compared to the...

Dealing with Depression with an Owl

I noticed at Comics Alliance a nice article on Boggle the Owl.  This is a great blog for those of us who struggle with depression. I have, throughout my life, dealt with severe depression.  For most of my life it was un-diagnosed.  When I finally got help, it was still a very difficult thing to... Continue Reading →


I mentioned in one of my Marcon posts that "my people", the geeks and nerds of the world, are a strange and often frail stock.  They are often unattractive due to medical issues or simply losing at the genetic lotto.  They often have no fashion sense.  No, wait, that's wrong - they have a DIFFERENT...

I was one of 100 lucky winners

Back in 1983, at the tender age of 9, I convinced my mother to allow me to send five entries into a sweepstakes by Parker Brothers for their new Atari 2600 game, Super Cobra.  I won both a Super Cobra patch, which I think lots of people won, and the grand prize, one of one... Continue Reading →

The Magical Child trope needs to die for a few decades

It may have started with the second V series, the 1980s sci-fi miniseries that introduced as part of its story line a human/alien hybrid child.  At the end of the second miniseries, the child had "magic powers" and used them to stop the aliens.  This was, for me, the first time I encountered the Magical...

The Blade of Vengeance

I like to use this blog as a way of recording my precious childhood memories and sharing them with whoever it is out there who reads this.  Recently I shared my love of Dragon magazine when I was younger.  The truth is, Dungeons and Dragons was as important to me as anything in my life...

Why Mass Effect 3’s ending makes me mad

SPOILERS AHEAD.  Seriously, if you want to play any of the Mass Effect games with no spoilers, do not continue to read this post. O.k., you were warned... I just finished Mass Effect 3 this weekend and five minutes afterward I was online looking to see how many other people hated the ending.  I say... Continue Reading →

My favorite issue of Dragon Magazine

I used to be a nut for TSR's Dragon Magazine.  We're talking the 1980s here, so long before Wizards of the Coast or Paizo Publishing got a hold of it.  I grew up in a small town and no one was into RPGs.  Even the kid who introduced me to D&D "grew out of it"... Continue Reading →
