Unlikely Allies

  Finding pictures of unlikely animal friendships has become unfathomably trendy lately.  While I generally find these pictures of interest, this one particularly caught my eye.  How did the baby elephant end up on a broken log overhanging a river?...

Moon 514 Excerpt

Today’s prose is a scene featuring the white griffon of Moon 514: The beast tentatively pawed the ground somewhat like a bull taunted by a puny matador that wasn’t really worth the effort.  Soon, the taps became tears in the...

Well Borrowed is Well Composed

One of my lease favorite composers (Arnold Schoenberg) penned these words: “Well borrowed is well composed.” He is indisputably right.  Modern viewers almost undoubtedly prefer the Matrix to Plato’s Cave despite the fact that Plato came along much earlier than...

Unified Weapons Master

I’m an avowed UFC fan.  Most of my friends find that revelation quite shocking but despite my very real fandom, I’ve been somewhat annoyed over some developments in the MMA community.  A growing number of fans are beginning to believe...

Prose – Moon 514

Today, prose from a portion of the scene behind the cover of Moon 514: Dense wisps of fog slowly encircled the magic woman, sensually caressing her body as if petting a purring kitten.  Crawling on all fours, she seemed to...

Moon 514: the Magic Woman

Every once in a while, I come across an idea or image that seems to write a story for me. The above image is one of those images. Some time ago, I was pondering over the success of the Star...

James Wolf

It’s happened twice in my recent past: I’ve seen a picture and thought “Now I have to rewrite a scene to match that painting!” James Wolf’s picture above made me want to rewrite a scene in Moon 514 where a...

Blaze

Here is my inspiration.  Like I said, I think the artist’s name is Tes Akizhao.  Apart from the cool armor and the spear instead of a staff, this could be a portrait of me.  Perhaps when I get my portrait...

If you have 2,000 reads, you know your book is good.

I attended WorldCon in the fall of 2013.  As anyone who regularly attends Cons might expect, I brushed shoulders with many nice (and sometimes very nice and weird) people dressed in extravagant costumes that one only ever sees at international...
