NOCTURNAL Episode #18

In the aftermath of the confrontation at Rex’s house, Marco escapes the apartment with Rex in tow. With every cop in the city now looking for a killer, Marco spirits Rex away to a hidey hole until the wee hours of the morning when it’s safe to go Home.

Back at Rex’s apartment, now crawling with San Francisco’s finest, Bryan and Pookie try and tie all the emerging pieces together. Is Rex the key to finding the BoyCo killer? Or is Rex, who is now missing, in danger? And for Bryan, will finding Rex help solve the mystery of his strange new dreams?

Rex finds himself more and more inspired by his new found talent for drawing, and the unexpected side effects his art seems to be having on the BoyCo boys survival rates.

Across town, Aggie James wakes up, more and more sober with each day, which isn’t making his situation any easier. Then, in a surprise turn, Hilary gives him a glimmer of hope.

And downtown, Bryan seems much recovered from his recent illness as he and Pookie meet up with Black Mr. Burns at the Pine Crest Diner to discuss his recent findings about the Golden Gate Slasher.

FridayFix: The “Captain Spaulding”

The FDØ invents a fancy drinky-drink

Author Mur Lafferty has a new book out in March, called THE GHOST TRAIN TO NEW ORLEANS. It’s a sequel to her Campbell Award-winning novel THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY, a paranormal tale about a plucky heroine who winds up writing travel guides for the undead.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/01_How_to_make_the_perfect__Captain_Spaulding_.mp3.mp3

Mur was recently on Twitter talking about a fictional drink in the book called a “Captain Spaulding.” This drink contains gin and demon blood. Blargh. She wondered how that might translate to the real world (assuming you don’t have a demon in your basement, like I do, cause I’m pimp like that, and, yes, mine wears a gimp suit). She even started a contest where you could come up with your own drink recipe for the Spaulding.

While I recuse myself from this contest, I could not let this opportunity pass me by. Hence, this FridayFix focuses on my interpretation of the Captain Spaulding. Enjoy!

This is how the other half lives, bitches.

NOCTURNAL Episode #15

Bryan and Pookie were kicked off the case by Chief Zou, but not before Pookie had Black Mister Burns investigate the occult symbols found at the murder scenes. Burns came up with a hit: a man who reported the same symbols decades earlier, during the Golden Gate Slasher case. That man? Mister Biz-Nass. Bryan and Pookie pay him a visit.

Pookie forces himself to believe his instincts and not his eyes, as he investigates another homicide strangely connected to Bryan. As reality starts to make less sense, Pookie and Bryan find some comfort in the familiar police working of canvassing for witnesses.

Meanwhile, across town, Rex finds comfort in the unfamiliar — his own strength. He discovers that he is changing, changing in ways that defy explanation.

New Year’s Writing Resolutions

Dawsey Quote

Sigh …

That’s the only way to open up this post, because every jackass and his/her mom does one of these “New Year’s Resolutions” posts. Well, since football season is over (#goddamndetroitlions) and Chocodiles no longer exist, the only thing this blackened heart still cares about is writing. Therefore, all of my stratemegizing for 2014 involves how to increase my writing quality and efficiency. More words on the page mean more stories for you.

Here’s how I’m going to create more and better things this year. If you’re a creative, or you’re trying to become one, take a look and see if these things resonate with you.
