Chapter 8 - Welcome to Providence
We, I mean me and the Hat, walked for what seemed like days. The desert gave way to a road. It was paved but no cars ever seemed to travel along it. We walked for three days and didn't see anything. I knew I should be getting hungry or thirsty, but…
I hate Hub City. I grew up here and I remember it being a better city then. But that is because I didn't know what I know now. My father was Vince Carlucci. I didn't know what he did for a living but we lived well and I never wanted for anything. I found out when I was a teenager, my father was a member of a criminal organization. But he always told me I could be anything I wanted and I wanted more…Continue

If you commit a crime in Hub City, it's said the wind will carry your sin to him. Pray the police find you, before He does.
I was a policeman in another life. I can't say I was the best, but I certainly wasn't the worst. In Hub City, it was a brutal life, violent and often…Continue
My Warhammer 40k experience is coming along nicely. I have become inured to the blood and gore and now have one favorite that stands out, 'Daemonblood' by Ben Counter. The female character is fighting a lost battle along with an Ultramarine, and his soul is overtaken in front of her by Parmenides, Prince of Nurgle, Plague God. As Castus' soul was being devoured, he was struggling to stay connected to his memories as an Ultramarine, and I really loved how the author described the difficulties…Continue

I gotta say, reading Warhammer 40k has, so far, been a gross, hacking, slashing, eviscerating experience. I have been reading it for two reasons. I need ideas for imagery and short story formats.
It has actually been pretty helpful as far as the formats. I am learning a lot. However, reading nothing but stories riddled with phrases like "a casual flick of its bladed leg licked out and eviscerated Brother Mellius quicker than the eye could follow. His shorn halves collapsed…Continue
J.S. put me on the spot at ONYXCON today about not being on this site as much... so what I've been up to is shifting my focus slightly from virtual reality to Augmented Reality (AR).
Augmented Reality (AR) technology has been in use since the 1990s, but a recognizable consumer market…Continue

I hope you’ve been saving up your milk money for next month because that’s when FOUR BULLETS FOR DILLON will at last be available from Pulpwork Press. The exact date will be announced soon. But in the meantime, here’s something for you to look forward to. A little something to sweeten the deal, so to speak.
First, some history: back in 2005, those of us who were writing for FRONTIER got the bright idea to produce a comic book: FRONTIER PUBLISHING PRESENTS. And after a lot…Continue
