Mecha, and A Giveaway

A short post today, as I try to ramp things back up here after a few crazy weeks. Short term, I hope to at least get one post per week (a substantial post) up, and if I can, gradually do more. Today, though, I have just a quick announcement, two, actually. The first is theContinue reading “Mecha, and A Giveaway”

Galaxy Ascendant Lore: The Marauder-class Destroyer: A Narrow but Effective Tool

It’s been a little while since the last Galaxy Ascendant lore post, so I figured I ought to get back to this, even as I make great headway in the writing of book 5 in the series. Still no concept art, unfortunately, but I am working on that. Stay tuned for more, and enjoy this post! Marauder-classContinue reading “Galaxy Ascendant Lore: The Marauder-class Destroyer: A Narrow but Effective Tool”

Personal Musings: 2016 Wrap-Up (And What to Look Forward to in 2017)

So, I was seeing lots of people writing 2016 wrap-up posts, so I figured I should do the same, even if it is a bit late. (And, also, this allows me to get something new up here while I keep working on a pair of longer posts that are taking longer than expected.) So, 2016,Continue reading “Personal Musings: 2016 Wrap-Up (And What to Look Forward to in 2017)”

Original Fiction (Sci-Fi): On Angels’ Wings (Full Story)

Now that the whole story is up, I figure I should at least make the option of having the whole thing on 1 page available, if it’d be more convenient for some people.

Here is part 2 of “On Angels’ Wings”. Third part will be up in less than a week.

Original Fiction (Sci-Fi): On Angels’ Wings (Part 1)

If I recall correctly, I hinted in my last post as well as on Twitter that my next updates here would be something different. Well, the day has come!

Why the Story of Mass Effect is One of the Greatest Stories Ever Told, and What it Has to Offer Genre Writers (Part 2: The Geth)

Ah, the Geth. This topic was probably the one I was most looking forward to writing about, primarily because this is a fairly specific aspect of the game, but in my view it’s one of the best things about it, and adds so much to the great universe of Mass Effect. People often talk aboutContinue reading “Why the Story of Mass Effect is One of the Greatest Stories Ever Told, and What it Has to Offer Genre Writers (Part 2: The Geth)”

Why the Story of Mass Effect is One of the Greatest Stories Ever Told, and What it Has to Offer Genre Writers (Part 1)

For anyone who’s read some of my previous posts or followed me on Twitter will probably know that I’m a huge fan of the Mass Effect game series. I’ve played through each game nearly twice now, and I’ve spent more than 100 hours playing Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer mode. So yeah, I like the games.Continue reading “Why the Story of Mass Effect is One of the Greatest Stories Ever Told, and What it Has to Offer Genre Writers (Part 1)”
