Writing Update: March 2017

I just finished the first draft of my latest story, An Eye for Eligos. A dark musket and magic tale set during the American Revolution, where I attempted to channel the darker aspects of Howard's writing. Violence, black magic, sinister monstrosities, all of the pulpy stuff I enjoy. I did a quick editing pass, then read …

A Good Day

I woke up this morning, checked my phone, and was greeted with a fresh rejection email. Not a big deal, rejections are part of the game. But this one was cool, it was a detailed, personal one.

The Horror Stories of Robert E. Howard

I am in this old school D&D, Sword and Sorcery, adventure, and horror kind of mood.

Howard https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8151962-the-horror-stories-of-robert-e-howard

The Biggest Sin of Story

I reread my post  on Asimov's and realized that in my guns blazing critique I left out my main problem with the magazine. The stories, for the most part, are well written, and beyond my amateur writing to technically critique. But, and this is a massive but. They are boring. The worst thing a story can …
