The following is an excerpt from a story I'm writing called Obasi's Honor. Hope you enjoy it.

The artist is Gauntlet.


    Behind him lay the bodies he’d killed; it had been, at best, serendipity, and not skill.

    He would rather that it had been…

Sunny Days

Sesame Street announces its get rid of Bob McGrath(Bob), Emilio Delgado (Luis), and Roscoe Orman (Gordon). What the heck!!??!!
Oh well at least Roscoe's free for Willie Dynamite 2: Big Willie's Back in Action. But seriously, Willie Dynamite is one of the few movies about pimping with a heart and a strong message.

A Word From the Artist - on drawing and digitally painting eyes

For me, the most difficult parts of the body to draw are the face and the hands, which is why I generally do them last, and on separate sheets of paper. There is nothing worse than drawing a great body, and then ruining it with the face that does not come out right, or the hands, which might look funny. So I learned to make my light table my best friend in drawing, and to use models, models and more models. Not like, Victoria Secret…

The Brittle Riders

My first, full length, novel is being released by Azoth Khem Publishing. So is my second and my third. This makes sense since all three work together to form a linear trilogy. Get your credit cards ready.…

Day Two at the Urban Axis IndyCon 2 with Jarvis Sheffield and the Black Science Fiction Society

Day Two of the Urban Axis IndyCon 2 was very informative. I got a chance to speak with a few more of the vendors. I also had the opportunity to talk to some of the people who organized the IndyCon. In addition being passionate about bringing artists together, all of the organizers are artists in their own right. We ended up discussing everything from graphic novels to video games to music.

Day One at the Urban Axis IndyCon 2 with Jarvis Sheffield and the Black Science Fiction Society

I served as the moderator for the Black Science Fiction panel. (That panel was the first time I got to meet a Jedi – live in the flesh.)

300 Black Owned Business Advertising Challenge

So let's talk about "Building". We see the images and things that are portrayed about people of color in the mainstream media and the truth is we will have very little power to change them. But what we CAN do is build our own media outlets and tell our OWN stories. But that takes funding. Now JBN - Jericho…

A Word From The Author - Throw-away stories

I have what I call throw-away stories. These are stories that I never write down. They are sometimes complex or simple. I run through them in different ways, living in one character or another. But they are not full and complete stories, like the ones I share. They are not crystallized, like the ones I write down, but remain fluid, mutable. Sometimes I come up with the greatest ideas through them - and I might adapt it and write it down for another story. But these…

A Word From The Artist - About My Skill

My mother always says that I have natural talent as an artist. That's always nice to hear, but the truth is, that there is nothing natural about it.

I have, basically, two talents: writing, and the ability to learn anything. But even…

A Word From The Author - How I Come Up With Names

From Brii Richards:


Hello! The addition of a word from the author was a nice touch to your website. There's been something I've thought about ever since I started reading your books and am wondering if you might want to expand upon. The names of people, places and things in your books are all very unique and interesting. But aside from just names, you also have your characters commit the act of naming. What are the conventions that you have your characters abide by in naming.…

Book suggestions for a work endeavor

Yeah! I have something I'm trying to do for work. Kind of inspired by a forum topic about why black speculative fiction isn't popular. I started getting emails about it recently and it got my brain ticking.

At the large bookstore chain where I work, we do have a few shelves of African American fiction. But they're mostly urban fiction about gangs, or slave narratives. Nothing wrong with either, but my hypothesis is that  if you don't have a way of knowing that there's sci fi…

It's driving me nuts about folks and these multilevel marketing plans....(mini rant)

If collisions between small projectiles -- protons (p), deuterons (d), and helium-3 nuclei (3He) -- and gold nuclei (Au) create tiny hot spots of quark-gluon plasma, the pattern of particles picked up by the detector should retain some 'memory' of each projectile's initial shape. Measurements from the PHENIX experiment match these predictions with very strong correlations between the initial geometry and the final flow patterns.

The Diversity Track & Black Science Fiction Society Back For Dragoncon 2019

I just got news this week that the Diversity Track will be back for 2019 at DragonCon. I'm excited to be invited back for another groundbreaking event. Everyone associated with the first one this year knocked it out of the park! I could not ask for better volunteers, guests, photographers, moderators and participants.

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since 1992....at San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

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.
