Telecine column at ManArchy

I’m contributing semi-regularly to a new column at ManArchy Magazine called Telecine. The term itself describes the process of transferring film to tape or disk. Of course, it also sounds like a cool amalgamation of “television” and “cinema,” which will be my areas of focus. Expect articles covering movie trends, retrospectives, witty observations about screens […]

LitReactor Book Club: Flashover

The readers and writers at the excellent LitReactor have chosen my novel Flashover for discussion in their community forum next month. I’ll be lurking in the shadows and answering some questions as they go, then participating more actively later in the month once all the spoilery stuff is out of the way. The details, lifted […]

Booked Podcast reviews Flashover

Normally I wouldn’t give every review its own post, but this is a really good one. Aside from the fact that they loved it (spoiler?), it’s a detailed look at the novel from several angles, making connections I wouldn’t have thought of, and confirming many that I did. Booked Podcast Episode #89: S#!t Authors Say […]

Video: Winebox and fiction reading

Czar Bar, Kansas City, 5/24/12 (“$@!# Authors Say” event). To warm things up, Winebox performed our very first show. I already had a camera set up for the readings, so I thought we should go ahead and record a live showcase video as well. Here are some selections for you: Somewhere in between readings by […]

How’s My Hair? reading

Yep, two readings in the same week. This time in a bookstore, which in theory would be a very different crowd than the inebriants populating Czar Bar a couple nights before, but I hope I can still count on you guys to help us keep things loose. And yes, three of the same blokes are […]

$@!# Authors Say (and play)

Come downtown and enjoy some double-threat entertainment from yours truly and friends at this reading and music event. We stage these at bars whenever possible to encourage more raucous audiences, as well as the loosened morality that alcohol enables. For the participants, too, because a shot of Jameson can help calm the nerves when you’re […]

Now that my liver and brain cells have had a chance to regenerate after the AWP conference in Chicago, here’s an update to the event I previously posted about that took place in St. Louis the night before that excursion. The incredibly gracious Jed Ayres and Scott Phillips hosted the most recent incarnation of “Noir […]

Andrez Bergen Interview

I recently had a chance to throw some questions at Andrez Bergen, the author of Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat (Another Sky Press), a novel that fuses sci-fi and hardboiled noir elements. In it, Melbourne is near-future Earth’s last city standing, where the ominous, ubiquitous Hylax Corporation and its CEO are behind the push to apprehend, incarcerate, […]
