The author is always the last to know

My wife's friend (hi Jennifer) snapped this with her camera phone in the Baton Rouge Barnes & Noble. See where it says "reading" at the bottom. Uh ... I had no idea. I just assumed I'd be sitting at a table doing the usual. Hmmmmmmmm. I'll need to look into this. Since my book is laced with vulgarity and violence (i.e. fictiony goodness), I usually refrain from reading in places where there might be children, etc.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Scholarship

My smart, pretty, awesome wife Jacqueline Bach (a professor-ish type person at Louisiana State University) has contributed a piece to a collection of scholarly essays about the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The collection is edited by some old chums of mine at Rogers State University where I used to misguide creative writing students. The tome is called The Truth of Buffy -- a must for hardcore, scholarly-inclined fans and university libraries with a good pop culture collection.

Kind of quiet around here ...

So I'm actually fairly busy, at work on some projects, etc. But it sure does seem quiet around here. Cricket sounds coming from the inbox. Let's get a little chatter going. How about some suggestions? Movies I should see? Books I should read? Beers I should drink? Let's hear it, folks. Wake me up. The caffeine just isn't doing it this morning.

Punisher Max at Pulp Secret

I'm glad I could provide THESE GUYS with some fodder for some heated debate. (By the way, dudes, LOVE the dancing.) Keep up the good work, guys. A pretty good web-show on comic books.

Want to hear me babel about it like a giddy child? Go HERE.

Get thyself PUNISHED.

This week my Marvel Comics debut Punisher Max: Little Black Book hits stores. I'm pretty excited. Props to excellent cover artist Dave Johnson and also to Jefte Palo who did the kick-ass interior pencils. I'd also like to thank David A Price over at MARVEL NOISE for saying such encouraging things about the issue. Much obliged!

Since nobody else is home, I'll pour myself a big-ass beer and congratulate myself!

I have just finished a draft of BAD ALCHEMY the next novel I'm scheduled to turn in to Simon & Schuster. (At least, that's the working title.) Werewolves? Zombies? Vampires? Grad Students?

We got 'em.

Now to pour this beer down my face and try not to think about all the editing I have ahead of me.

Newsarama is my new best pal

Nothing is more gratifying for an author than when a reader or reviewer really "gets it." So a big thanks to Steve Ekstrom whose review appears HERE.

Kicking it Shatner style

Drink a beer then go HERE.

Thanks to Professor Fury for the heads up.
