Well, sort of. Not safe for work, do not attempt to eat, drink or breathe while reading this fully spoilering satire.

Not Safe For Work

Hilarious, but not safe for work. (for the record I do like kids.)

Small request

Can anyone using Dreamhost, please login and vote for the addition of HTML email. Really, having no choice but to use plain text email is barbaric. This is simple: you login to Dreamhost(, go to suggestions in the big morass of keywords, search for “html email” and vote for it. If they decide to implement […]

Yes I’m serious about the spoilers. This is your last chance to be safe. The deaths were surprising, at first glance. When you look at Mad Eye’s death, that was the most immediate bit of foreshadowing in the series. Everyone else it was a few chapters, with him, a couple pages. Dobby really surprised be, […]

No Spoilers – Harry Potter

About halfway through the book i realized something. I never want to see the movie in the theater. Deathly Hollows is entirely too good a book to ever make a successful translation to film.

The most annoying thing about my job isn’t the truly and traumatically bad writing. It isn’t the ‘you hate me’ emails, or even the rumors of the like rolling back to me. Hell, even interminable waiting for publishers to get back to me on a submission is not the worst part. The worst is the […]

MM, still burdened by a pulse.

Hello, Its been a busy couple of days. At this point all MM participants should have received some sort of word from me. The most common form of answer was “no thanks not yet ready”, followed by “not my style, good luck” and there were a surprising number of “please fix and return”. Anyone who […]
