Being “Apolitical” is not a Virtue

A little while ago, David V. Stewart made a solid blog post about the concept of being “apolitical,” and I had something to add to it. Namely, beware people who use their alleged “apolitical” nature as a virtue. You see, as David pointed out in his post, being truly Apolitical is all-but impossible. Just the…

Let’s Watch Girls Und Panzer: Episode 9

Been a little longer than I would’ve liked, but now we’re back with Girls Und Panzer Episode 9: “We’re in Deep Trouble!” We don’t pick up right where we left off—not quite. We’re treated to a little flashback to explain the revelation we got at the end of last episode. The Student Copuncil is meeting…

Conservative Author Shadowbanned on Kickstarter

In the latest instance of forces conspiring against right-wing creators, bestselling author Jon Del Arroz’s Kickstarter campaign for his Dynamite Thor comic has been shadowbanned on Kickstarter, and google. Searching for the campaign by its name, or by Jon’s name, on the site won’t bring it up. You need the direct link. It doesn’t appear…

Support Indie Fantasy Films, Too!

I mostly talk about books here, for obvious reasons, but there is also an decent indie sci-fi and fantasy film scene. Over the years, I’ve helped support a few via crowdfund, mostly by Arrowstorm Entertainment, who succeeded enough to get a CW fantasy show, The Outpost, which just got renewed for a third season. Today, however,…

2020 Beckons!

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you enjoyed any celebrations you attended, and I hope the new year–and decade–has gotten off to a great start! So last week, I released my sum-up of my 2019, focusing on writing related stuff but touching on other personal developments as well. Now, about a week into the new year–and…

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 Shifting…

An Ancient Stirring Live on Kickstarter!

I am pleased to announce that the campaign for Galaxy Ascendant book 6, An Ancient Stirring, is now live on Kickstarter! As is obvious, this is a campaign to cover the production costs (art, editing, etc) for the book. Additionally, this time I have something else you can help fund, namely a series of special…

A Fiery Reckoning Indiegogo Post-Op Thoughts

With the conclusion of my second crowdfunding campaign, it’s time for some quick evaluation of lessons learned. Learning from everything, successes and failures, is how one gets better at anything, after all. So, let’s look at what went right with the A Fiery Reckoning campaign first. Most obvious positives are the fact that I ended…

Movie Review: Mythica: The Necromancer

Yes, I am (finally) back! It’s been far, far too long since I’ve posted anything up here, but I at least have some good reasons, namely completing my 45,000 word Master’s Thesis, as well as working to get things in order for an intercontinental move coming up in August–more on that at a later date.…
