Merry Cthulhumas

This is pretty much an annual thing now. The season is upon us. Sadly, the flu hit me hard right now so I am going with a repost of the seasonal reminder (originally December 20, 2016). Enjoy the merriment as it is intended. Merry Cthulhumas We all should know by …

Going Solo

Going Solo #reflection

Going Solo The title of this piece is actually a misnomer. As much as it surprises me to be at this right here, I realize it had to happen. Before you jump to all sorts of odd conclusions, let me put you a bit at ease. The whole of this …

If I had a Hammer

This is a blast from the past (December 21, 2015) that seems appropriate to share again for the start of the holiday shopping season. If I had a Hammer I know you’ve been there, this isn’t my first time in this position myself. The fight began when I pulled the …

No Costume Needed

This is a blast from the past originally posted on November 10, 2014. It was something that fell into the Indies Unlimited flash fiction challenge stories, but it ended up being too long. Though it’s a day late, it does fit the mood of the season. Cthulhumas is upon us …

Forest Gump

Forest Gump #reflection

Forest Gump Spending a bunch of time on the road gives you plenty of time to think. You know, lost in your own mind instead of watching the road and world around you… or something. Anyway, as I was going between schools recently my mind wandered over to Forest Gump. …

Memories of Ice #vignette

Memories of Ice Clang. The hammer flattened the metal on the anvil. Clang Clang. Jarns focused on the task, lost to the rhythm. Clang. A year as an apprentice, today Master Trage would judge his final piece. The sword for Sir Hamna. Clang Clang. He shoved the metal back into …

Immortal Iron Fist

Immortal Iron Fist #reflection

Immortal Iron Fist I’ve been reading The Immortal Iron Fist (Marvel Comics, digital release between 2012 and 2013) collection over the past few months. I read it in its five-volume run that covered close to 30 comics. To start off, when I think of Kung Fu epics and a warrior …
