All the Western News!

Posted on

Although I’ve participated in Kickstarters and other crowdfunding efforts as an author, I’ve never been the focus of one before. I’m not entirely the focus now, but I am editing–and helping run–a Kickstarter for a new Western anthology.

123123 (Looking Backward and Forward)

Well, it’s been a year. Some parts were good, some bad, as with most years. Outwardly, it doesn’t seem like my most productive year ever because I only released one book–Byrd’s Luck & Other Western Stories (details at the link).

Here in our household, we’ve all had Covid, with varying degrees of severity, but we’re all still here, thankfully. But like many […]

Spider-Man: Requiem large

Spidey and Me

Posted on

Several years ago, I had the distinct pleasure of writing a novel about one of my all-time favorite superheroes, Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man. The novel–a blend of super-hero action and horror–was Spider-Man: Requiem, and it boasted a terrific cover painting by my pal J.H. Williams III.
