This is an inventory all of all my film articles, updated whenever I write something new. I put the general / theoretical articles first, followed by more specific reviews and analyses. Christopher Nolan of course gets his own section, as does Drive. Enjoy!

Where did the idea come from for the book?


What genre does your book fall under?

Post-apocalyptic science-fiction horror.

One week.

That’s this Tuesday, 8 January. The event starts at 7:30pm and will feature “poetry, fiction, and other literary sundries” by myself as well as Heather Marie Vernon, Daniela Olszewska, Melissa Severin, Meghan Lamb, and the brilliant Virginia Konchan:

2013 is the year of the snake in the Chinese Zodiac (the snake is considered a good omen in a house as a sign the family would not starve). All things will be possible this year, and saving money and being thrifty will be rewarded by the gods. Wine and refreshments provided, and special prizes offered to those born in the year of the snake.

High Concept Laboratories is located at 1401 W. Wabansia Ave. (Chicago).

You should come!

I was tired of not having a decent digital camera (my phone takes sucky photos), so I bought an iPod Touch. I figure, if I’m going to buy a camera, I might as well also be able to put music on it, and videos, and browse the internet and such. (Right?)

Now I can take all the photos I want! And so I will probably start posting more photos at this blog. Here’s one:

Look at how proud I look to own new tech!

Those are copies of Amazing Adult Fantasy behind me. (Michelangelo is guarding them.)

I also took some photos of my neighbor, the author Kyle Beachy, whom I ran into at the skate park near our respective apartments (I was taking one of my signature long walks):

I don’t remember owning a shirt like that, though. Or standing in front of that wall.

The shop is right by three of my other favorite Logan Square institutions: Cafe Mustache, 2 Amigos Restaurant, and Cole’s Bar.

That’s this Thursday, 23 August, at or around 7pm. (Well, after 7pm; we’ll no doubt start a little late, as such events tend to.) Also reading and performing will be BO’B’s own Marc Ruvolo and Davey Houle, and I hear there might be some music in addition to fiction and poetry. I intend to debut some new material, as well as a slick new haircut!

Bucket O’ Blood is an utterly wonderful little bookstore and record shop in Logan Square. They specialize in science-fiction, fantasy, and horror (and they have other things as well), and they are one of my favorite bookstores in Chicago, due to their Marc and Davey’s excellent taste in both fiction and used book quality.

This event is free and open to all and is BYOB. There may also be an actual bucket o’ blood on hand for refreshment purposes.
