The Gate Opens

Since the arrival of The City Stained Red, a lot of people have expressed an interest in reading my earlier works: Tome of the Undergates, Black Halo and The Skybound Sea. And for that, I am perpetually grateful.  I absolutely adore the enthusiasm and exuberance for all my work. So it has routinely irritated me to have to tell people […]

Hey guys! I write comics, too!

So, from my various rants on superhero costumes to my occasional comics depicting a sexually-inappropriate Spider-Man, you probably realize I love comics.  And if that wasn’t evidence enough, there is the fact that I had one made for my very own story with the insanely good help of my friend, Ashley Cope. Flesh and Blood, […]

New York Comicon 2015!

Unshaken, not Unstirred

Hey.  You guys want to talk about heroes? I’ve been attending some cons lately–San Diego Comicon, New York Comicon next month, and most recently GenCon, which spurred this blogpost–and I’ve been on a few panels in which authors, editors and audience members alike have been voicing a common thought on a singular sigh. “I miss […]

GenCon 2015!

HEY ASSHOLES, IT’S ME. What a busy month this is.  First San Diego Comicon (and thanks so much, those of you who came to see me) and now GenCon 2015!  The biggest gaming convention in the United States will be hosting me as a guest at the Writer’s Symposium this year! So, if you’re going […]

San Diego Comicon 2015!

Will you be at San Diego Comicon in two weeks?  Hooray!  So will I!  We can be friends! If you’d like to see me there, you can find me at the following locations: FRIDAY 10:00 AM-11:00 AM, Room 32AB: Romantic Adventure!  We’re going to discuss how romance and fantasy and adventurous stuff intertwine!  So basically this […]

He Who Bones Monsters

I don’t think any subject should not be written about.  Nor do I believe that the word “forbidden” should be taken at face value.  But I do believe that writing is a cooperative act: as you shape the piece, the piece also shapes you.  And some subjects will carry you over a terrible threshold from […]

Papers, Please

So, before I say anything else, I want to say that Phoenix Comicon 2015 was a rousing, immense success. The panels were fantastic.  The panelists were even better.  We sold out of our copies of The City Stained Red, which is tops.  And, above all else, the fans were absolutely phenomenal.  Phoenix Comicon is my very favorite […]

Phoenix Comicon 2015!

IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN! Yes!  It’s the very best time of year, where people dressed like ninjas and people dressed like robots come together for the purpose of buying swag and seeing authors make fools of themselves! IT’S PHOENIX COMICON, MOTHERFUCKER! You probably came here to find out where I’ll be.  Can’t say I blame you. […]

Upon the Backs of Robots

When I was a young man, I never really thought about what sort of entertainment I consumed. I never really contemplated the philosophical ramifications of my He-Man action figures.  I had a Skeletor figure with one of those little orbs in the chest that changed sigils and that was badass as fuck and that was […]
