“Lake Como, it seems to me, touches on the limit of permissibly picturesque, but Atitlán is Como with additional embellishments of several immense volcanoes. It really is too much of a good thing.” –Aldous Huxley Our departure from Flores was less eventful than our arrival, with no travel hiccups (well, save…

Journey to the Land of Eternal Spring

This post is long overdue. We went to Guatemala in early September, almost at the end of summer, and here we are on the first day of winter. Where did the time go? The autumn was taken up with working, cooking, exploring our own neighborhood, catching up with friends and family…so much of that in…

The Novel, or Scrivener, or Stay Tuned…

In an attempt to post on a more regular basis, I am going to try to start posting more about my novel in progress. This is in part inspired by my friend, and fellow Hiram Grange author, Richard Wright, who has been posting regularly about his foray into spending a year on writing and publishing…

Paul Meloy’s stunning collection of short stories, Islington Crocodiles, originally by TTA Press, now reprinted by Bad Moon Books, collects several short stories that…

We will be in the rainforests of Belize in less than three weeks. Howler monkeys, Belikin beers, and Mayan ruins.

Looking forward to the first ever Anthology Convention in Portsmouth, NH, put on by the winsome folks at Shroud Publishing. I am going to be on a few panels, including one on experimental & psychedelic fiction (I fully expect to roped on benzedrine and toad venom) and one on writing workshops (yep, I suspect the…
