Farewell

Melanie Tem.

Quest for CBS (Stout)

We’re all on a handful of panels, and otherwise certain to be found on that raised dais area in the middle of the hotel lobby, likely in great cheer from libations smuggled in under the […]

And because I’m me, I currently have 24 different stouts in my cellars. So come to World Fantasy, to […]

To An Author

Very sad to hear of the passing of Eugie Foster, who seemed a bright person and insightful writer. She sent me a piece at BCS years ago that was more fable-esque than I prefer; I always hoped she would send more. The same for Jay Lake and Euan Harvey. I’ve known premature loss multiple times […]
