The Clockwork Horseman

My steampunk fantasy short story, The Clockwork Horseman, is published and available now on both Amazon and Lulu and it can be found in the anthology Devil’s Armory III. Alas, there does not appear to be an e-book version! Oh well. The story will one day be available in e-book...

DragonCon 2017

DragonCon 2017 was the biggest DragonCon ever, with some 82,000 to 85,000 people attending! My wife went to some of the bigger media panels, but I stayed away, sticking mostly to the Science and Space tracks with some excursions to the Sci-Fi Literature track, Star Wars track, and the Writing...

Thor: Ragnarok

The latest trailer for “Thor: Ragnarok” just came out, and all I can say is, “Wow!” The Hulk, Thor, Valkyrie, and Loki team up to face off against the Goddess of Death, played by Cate Blanchett, and the Grandmaster, played by Jeff Goldblum. This is going to be one wild ride (of...

Down in the Clockwork City

My latest steampunk fantasy story to be published has arrived! Down in the Clockwork City has been released under the Society of Misfit Stories anthology series, and is now available for Kindle download from Amazon.com. The description they gave it has a bit to be desired, but I didn’t come...

The Epic Fantasies of Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors. He is a true master of epic fantasy, but is perhaps an even greater master of world building and refreshingly unique magic systems. The richly detailed worlds he creates are distinctly different from the “cut and dry” European fantasy tropes, and often...

The Mines of Nuram

My steampunk fantasy short story, The Mines of Nuram, has been published in the January 2016 issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly. If you want to check it out, and read some other good stories as well, you can get a print copy through Amazon or a Kindle addition if you prefer.

The Mysterious Explorations of Jasper Morello

The Mysterious Explorations of Jasper Morello is an animated short film by Anthony Lucas. It is a beautiful blend of Gothic horror and steampunk aesthetics, complete with iron dirigibles, a grungy Victorian city, a mad scientist, a tragic hero, and a horrifying monster. It doesn’t get better than this! See...

A Map of Literature

17-year-old Martin Vargic has created this amazing Map of Literature as a graphical visualization of how the world’s literature evolved from the ancient era to the present day. The map is incredibly detailed, and features genres, authors, best selling books, best selling authors, and Nobel Prizes in literature. I’ve not been able...

A Natural History of the Fantastic

Ever wondered how dragons fly? An amazing new Kickstarter project is running now, A Natural History of the Fantastic by Christopher Stoll, seeking to answer just that question any many more. Exploring the fantastical biology of such beasties as griffons, minotaurs, mermaids, cyclopes, kappas, centaurs, and, of course, dragons, Christopher Stoll’s art book includes...

Final Fantasy VII Remake

It looks like one of my favorite games is about to get its long awaited remake. Now that it’s really happening, I’m not sure how to feel about it. FFVII was cutting edge for its time, and one of the first truly story driving RPGs with characters we cared so...
