Last night's episode of Lost was my favorite of the series so far. I have yet to discuss it here because it's such a complex television show and I wouldn't even know where to start, though I'm sure if you ask some of its more avid fans, they might say otherwise.

For me, Lost's appeal is its storytelling. Yes, Evangeline Lily is cute, yes, Terry O'Quinn can act his ass off, and yes, Harold Perrineau is versatile as hell, but it's the storytelling that gets me. It… Continue

Irony -- Short circa Summer 2006

As promised many moons ago, I am going to start posting some of my short stories and scraps. Please let me know what you think.

Irony by VD DeVau...

Ronnie ate the apple in small deliberate bites. Her stomach clinched and released with each swallow. It didn’t taste like much, but she wasn’t used to eating. Funny things you can stop getting used to doing.

Her arms ached and her legs were jelly when she tried to get up off the cot. Some tubing in her nose kept… Continue

A Poem I wrote

Circle Of
Read to feel a bit of Hope in your life.

Added by LeVar Anthony on March 4, 2009 at 7:17pm — No Comments



My man is everything a woman could dream.

Dedicated, hard working, strong.

I bear my soul to him.

With him I have no reason to fear anything.

My rock, strength, fortress.

He is my protector.

The love in his eyes exsists only for me.

Sensual, penetrating, yet vunerable.

I am his Queen.

He is the epitome of what a real man should be.

Masculine, loving, faithful.

His spirit is beautiful.

His… Continue

Animosity (More Poetry)

Inside I feel the walls closing in.

Rapidly. A tragedy. Loves made at me.

Emptiness Resides where love used to be.

Put my soul at ease. I can't conceive you with out me. We're meant to be.

But you don't see.

The pain inside is consuming me.

And suddenly what used to be is a memory that's haunting me. Love's taunting me.

I don't beleive you want to leave.

I realize rejection has chosen me.

It's controlling me. Showing me… Continue

For the Soul of the Yellow Butterfly (Poetry)

Beautiful you were.

Innocent and oblivious to the harsh world around you.
Such a happy and carefree soul should never be made to suffer for one's wordly conflicts.

But I, in a destructive rage,
So unfairly deprived you of your life
Which was used only to beautify this cold, dark place.

So it is with much remorse that I pray for deliverance

For the Soul of the Yellow Butterfly.

Got Rope?

A little morning bondage.

I've been collecting BDSM images to finish a new draft of my "Bitches Brew" script. Whenever I work on a story, a script, or a poem, I collect images that I put into my scrapbook. It's kinda like creating my own one sheet/movie poster/book cover. I then put together a sound track of music that reflects the soundscape/tone I'm trying to create in my work. As I write, the music and images transport me, and then I become the characters I write… Continue

Retro-KM: Land of the Landlords

Retro-Km: Land of the Landlords presents a future landscape not very common in science fiction. As a huge fan of the genre, I have absorbed science fiction in all of its formats, from print to television to film. Let's face it, the science fiction we grew up with, that we still love, is overwhelmingly white. In Star Wars, mostly white humans and their alien allies squared off against a white human male dominated tyrannical regime.

Battlestar Galactica, original and remake, tilted… Continue

DAW Books acquires my first adult novel, titled Who Fears Death?

I’m ecstatic to announce that earlier this week I sold my first adult novel to DAW Books. The book is titled Who Fears Death? and it is possibly the most terrifying book I’ve ever written.

I started writing it just after my father passed in 2004 and the very nature of the story plagued me with nightmares as I was writing it. It also plagued several of my friend with nightmares when they read it. The story is relentless and unflinching. It was inspired by the genocide in the… Continue

Why is it? – A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping under an advertised blanket on an advertised mattress and pull off advertised pajamas? Takes a bath in an advertised tub, shaves with an advertised razor, washes with an advertised soap, put on advertised clothes, sits down to breakfast of advertised coffee, put on an advertised hat, rides to his office in an advertised car, writes with an advertised pen.. Then he refuses to advertise, says that advertising doesn’t pay, and… Continue

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.
