Wizards of the Coast Can Go To Hell

I guess the title makes things pretty clear from the outset, doesn’t it? As a company, Wizards of the Coast is dead to me. It’s been coming for a while now, but around last week was where it all solidified, and I’ve determined to no longer buy any sealed product from them. (With maybe aContinue reading “Wizards of the Coast Can Go To Hell”

2019 In review

Well it’s just about time to flip the calendar, as it were, to 2020, so let’s do a quick recap of my 2019. I think I can fairly safely say that it was, if not my best year ever, it was certainly my most productive. Way back in the end of January, I release A ShiftingContinue reading “2019 In review”

Galaxy Ascendant 3 Map Reveal

When someone thinks of maps in speculative fiction books, the mind always goes first to the fantasy genre, and the city/country/continent/world maps that go along with it. I love those maps, and my recently released epic fantasy novel, The Dragon Hand, featured one such map. However, science fiction stories can make good use of maps asContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant 3 Map Reveal”

A Call to Arms

In my last post, I brought up the culture war, and some of the reasons why people on the Right essentially ceded the creative fields to the left, and hasn’t supported ideological allies who come under attack by the leftist mobs. fortunately, however, there has been resistance to the creeping cancer recently. We had #GamerGateContinue reading “A Call to Arms”

The Failure of Conservatives to Conserve Culture

“What have Conservatives actually managed to conserve?” is something I’ve heard a lot recently from people in right-wing circles (alt-lite as well as alt-right.) The basic point being made here is that despite their apparent best efforts, Western society has been sliding leftward, away from the values Conservatives espoused. A large part of this isContinue reading “The Failure of Conservatives to Conserve Culture”

Thoughts on being The Only Pirate at the Party (or the only sci-fi/fantasy writer in history class)

So, this post has been a long time in coming, but it was one that I wanted to be sure I finished (for point of reference, I first started writing this over a year ago). Back then my hair was short, my thesis was months from completion, and I was still querying agents. My, howContinue reading “Thoughts on being The Only Pirate at the Party (or the only sci-fi/fantasy writer in history class)”

JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 3)

On to day three, the last day of JordanCon. 😦 I let myself sleep a little bit late again, because I really needed it, and between that and packing (checkout was at noon), I didn’t make it down until around 11:30. Seeing as that was in the middle of a panel block, and there wasn’tContinue reading “JordanCon 2015 Recap (Part 3)”
