I think a lot of people watching the show are in desperate need of serious therapy.

I have a fascination with true crime and serial killers from a writing and history perspective, but I don't love these monsters. Nobody should. They're living horrors beyond reason

Will definitely be sharing these!

If you're interested in my thoughts about being Academic Track head at this year's Worldcon, I wrote a little (not so little) post about my thoughts. I learned a lot, but I still have so much more learning to do.

Anywhoodles. Join up! :D

Fun fact: Once upon a time, I brought @premeesaurus on a podcast to talk about worldbuilding, climate change, and infodumps (among other subjects).

You should listen to it. Might fill you with joy.

I think I'm going to finish this fun murder mystery story involving a frog-man drug lord. I'm having way too much fun reading this.

Ah. Delicious Star Wars art. I could almost live in this. Except for the whole "vacuum of space" thing. And the lasers. And the evil empire. You get the idea...

My darkly humorous & much-twisted story, “What Family is Made Of,” was published in Issue 2 of @CuriouserMag. It's about a futuristic funeral service involving biotech, pets, and recliners!

This is the only question I need an answer to from Disney.

What a missed opportunity...

Why is Disney remaking its old cartoons as live-action movies when it could be remaking them as Muppet movies?

Friend of the show @CoraBuhlert has a fantastic short interview w/ @Penprince_ about Bridging Worlds: Global Conversations on Creating Pan-African Speculative Literature in a Pandemic (a bit of a title :P).

Link to the book in the interview. Read both.
