Been Busy Not Living in Texas 7

Been Busy Not Living in Texas
I can’t believe it’s been ten days since I finished my move. Where the fuck has the time gone? I feel like I just got here, and yet… I won’t say that I regret the time I spent in Houston. That would be grossly unfair to the wonderful coworkers and the stimulating and fun work ...

A life in boxes

So I’m now t-minus two days from the movers arriving to put 95% of my possessions into a couple of shipping containers where they’ll live for the next couple of months until I get my living situation in Colorado settled. And t-minus five days from embarking on the long drive back up to Colorado. (Without ...

Thank you, dear friends, THANK YOU.

No shit, we did it. Some time as I was dozing in a cold medicine fog while being shot through the sky in a pressurized metal tube between Chicago and Houston, the Kickstarter finished, and we not only had full funding, but we hit all three stretch goals. So y’all are gonna get 24 stories that ...

No Sh!t, There I Was: Skinwalker, Fast Talker 1

IT’S THE FINAL STORY The Kickstarter is almost over, but you still have a couple days, and here’s the final reason you should support us if I somehow haven’t convinced you yet with the other 23 amazeballs stories. How about this for a slice of fried gold: Skinwalker, Fast Talker by Darcie Little Badger. There are so ...

No Sh!t, There I Was: Blush Response

So no shit, there we are, a couple hundred bucks from the first stretch goal for the Kickstarter! WOOHOO, EVERYONE! Go go go, let’s get illustrations in this baby and then a pay raise for the writers. There are only two stories left in the table of contents, so which one will RNGesus pick today? ...

No Sh!t, There I Was: Dropped In

Ready for one of the last three pieces from the table of contents for my amazeballs anthology? It’s time for another slush jackalope fave, this one titled Dropped In, by Jo Robson. As story opening lines for the anthology go, this is my favorite second only to the necromantic weasels: No shit, there I was, hip deep ...

No Sh!t, There I Was: First of the North

We’re down to the last four stories in the No Shit table of contents! If you haven’t supported the Kickstarter yet, what are you waiting for? I guarantee, these four are just as awesome in their own way as the previous twenty. Today’s story is First of the North by Andrew Barton. It’s probably the most ...

[Movie] Thoughts on Captain America: Civil War 6

Well, holy shit. I went in expecting a hot mess that I’d love anyway (hello, Age of Ultron) and instead got a movie that I feel like I need to make dying seagull noises about and then place it on a shelf next to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I’m not going to write a more standard-ish review. ...

No Sh!t, There I Was: Salted Tongues and Salted Lashes

Time for another offering from the No Shit table of contents! Today it’s Salted Tongues and Salted Lashes by Rachael K. Jones. Not going to lie, I was excited as hell to see a story from Rachael in my slush pile, and she did not disappoint. Salted Tongues and Salted Lashes has one of the more playful ...
