The Grocery Cart from Hell

I’m going out on a limb here and saying that I’m not the only one who despises that grocery cart in desperate need of a 100,000 mile maintenance. As soon as you start pushing it you know you should whip a U-turn, park it and grab a sparkly new one, but you grit your teeth and tell yourself to ride it out. More »

The Convention Chronicles

I’ve been on a literary convention hiatus for a couple of years now. Mostly due to a busier personal life: a more demanding day job, successful publishing house, the kids have gotten older and their lives more active and then trying to fit in writing amid the chaos. Drum roll please! Thanks to the kind folks at CONvergence I’ll be back on the panels, hoping to spread my industry knowledge with reckless abandon. More »

Hate Mail

I thought I’d post some hate mail from one man in particular, not only geared at myself but Skullvines Press. Enjoy, because it entertains the shit out of me! And I bet you can’t guess who said these wonderful things! More »

Race Traitor By Trade

I’m not lying when I say I hear comments about race on a daily basis, but if anything is ever directed toward me or used in a conversation with me I’m quick to address it. More »

Stages of Bodily Decomposition

I found this to be really intriguing. Hard to believe the human body is reduced to this process. Still trying to picture myself going through such a reversed metamorphosis. I grabbed and copied this delightful info from this link: More »


A Gripping 21st Century Pulp Novel

Recent review posted on Amazon for Patrick Rutigliano’s SURVIVING THE CRASH.

This is a cleverly plotted, nail-biting pulp tale, combining the best elements of twentieth century pulp novels, with some twenty-first century twists, such as a strong female lead character. Reminiscent of Howard stories, it gets your attention at the outset, and makes it hard for you to put down. Actually three episodes that form a whole, the three mesh together well. Great escapist fare, if you hanker for the fast and furious novels that were so popular in the Twenties and Thirties. Hopefully, this can be issued in a paper format as well, so you can experience the satisfying crunch of paper between your fingers! Bodes well for things to come from this author.
