MONSTROSITY: Thoughts on BatFleck, CROUCHING TIGER sequel, Vin Diesel is a tree

Well, we goofed up. We shot and edited this episode of MONSTROSITY ten days ago, but the host company (Mevio) didn’t upload it to their servers until Wednesday. So here is, my ever-so-timely commentary on BatFleck (which, I believe, should make me the final person in the world to comment on this all-important story, so [...]

New Fiction: “A Girl With Excellent Taste in Music”

NSFW fiction, read it for free

Frank Sinatra

As an author, sometimes you come up with this really killer idea that you know people are going to love. And sometimes (which is most of the time), you later find out that your really killer idea has either already been done, or — for scifi writers — kind of “came true” before you could get the story to the public. And when that happens, it sucks.

The story below was intended for our upcoming short story collection FIRE IS ORANGE. I finished it months ago and thought I was oh-so-clever. It is about a disturbed person finding creative ways to utilize a next-gen Google Glass. Then one day I was listening to NPR, and what did I hear? That’s right, a story about people who had hacked the current gen of Google Glass to create the same possibilities I listed in the story.

Boom: just like that, a forward-thinking story becomes dated and obsolete. The longer I wait to release this story, the more tired and cliché it will sound.

FIRE IS ORANGE won’t be out for many moons, so, ARealGirl and I decided to put it out now, for free, on this here site.
