The Champions#7

The Rurh Valley, West Germany            Normally quiet peaceful and tranquil, the industrial city of Iserlohn was not one where superhuman battles were commonplace.  German superheroes such as Frieiheitskampfer, Rork, Blitzkreiger and Captain Mors tended to operate in the major cities such as Berlin, Munich or Stuttgart.  They rarely, if ever got to the smaller cities unless and until there was a pressing need for them.            They certainly could have been used ten minutes ago.  That’s…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
Much like removing a bandaid I suppose the best way to get through this is to rip it off as quickly as possible, accept the pain and move on:

My name is Derrick Ferguson and I'm from Brooklyn, New York where I've lived most of my life. Married for 25 years to the wonderful Patricia Cabbagestalk-Ferguson who lets me get away with far more than is good for me.

My interests include old radio shows, classic pulps from the 30's/40's, comic books, fan fiction, Star Trek, pop culture, science fiction, animation, television and movies...oh yeah...movies. I'm currently the co-host of the podcast BETTER IN THE DARK where my partner Thomas Deja and I rant and rave about movies on a bi-weekly basis.

My primary love is reading and writing and I've written four books to date: Dillon And The Voice of Odin, my love letter to classic pulp action/adventure with a modern flavor. Derrick Ferguson's Movie Review Notebook and it's sequel The Return of Derrick Ferguson's Movie Review Notebook.
Diamondback Vol I: It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time, a spaghetti western disgused as a modern day gangster/crime thriller.

How I Create My Characters (For Better or For Worse)



First off, I don't think any writer sits down saying: "Today I am going to create a memorable character." Any more than he can sit down and say "Today I am going to write a memorable novel." Only the kindness of readers and the passage of time can judge the memorability of a writer's…

Hey Derrick,

 

Thanks for the compliment but I've got news for you, I hate my voice too. I appreciate you taking the time to listen to my podcast. As far as the source of the stats of deaths from illegals driving drunk I gather my information from many sources; news papers, radio talk shows, the internet and so forth. i admitt that I'm not 100% correct in all that I say but then it's ment to be commentary and not a factual news cast. I don't usually keep my notes so I can't say where I got the information but I'll bet its not that far off the mark.

 

As far as American citizens not willing to do certain jobs, as long as we have the freebies like welfare and other programs of course some people will refuse to work. For me, someone who spent fives years as a laborer in the sewer department, at times literially knee deep in human waste, I don't think any honest job should be beneath anyone regardless of race, creed, color or gender.

If I were king everyone would pull his or her own weight or starve or live off of mom or dad. That includes the baby mamas. I know all of the arguments against it, including its not fair for the kids but I grew up poor, not eating half the time, no proper winter clothing, cardboatd in my shoes between my feet and the snow and I and my seven brothers and sisters survived, prospered and are all productive citizens except for one brother who passed away early in life.

 

So I'm kind of a hards ass when it  comes to people leaching off of the system. It is a basic tenant of human nature if you reward certain behaviors you will certainly get more of it and vice versa, punish it or make life hard and you will get less. Plus when a human being does not earn his or her own way they don't develop real self esteem or self-relieance or self-worth which is one of the biggest problems in the ghetto as far as I'm concerned.

 

Stay tuned,

 

 Elbert

Derrick! Great book! I wish I had discovered it back in 2003, but I'm glad I have more books in the series to look forward to. I'll be getting Golden Bell soon. I posted two reviews, one in the Discussion section of BSFS and on Amazon. Keep up the good work!

A member of the expat group I'm in posted a humongous list of remote jobs.

Sites similar to Fiverr and online teaching gigs, things like that.

Some of the sites are free, some are paid, and some are a combination (pay for greater access, pay to post a gig, etc)

The idea for you, the budding writer/artist, would be to join one of the 58 sites and see if you can attract any work for whatever price you want to set. 

I live overseas, so this is the sort of thing I look for when I want to make a little extra on the side, or to find artists for my book projects. Click here for the list.

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
