Will Pope Siglericus XXX risk showing his face in Las Vegas again? And SiglerFest 2K13 taught us that Francis Dominic Oliveri is terrible at arm wrestling and smacktalking, but good at bowling and karaoke. Okay, not great at bowling either.

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.

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.

PANDEMIC book tour rolling along

PANDEMIC tour stop in at the Harvard Coop

Today I’m heading from Baltimore to Nashville for Stop #5 on the PANDEMIC tour. Last night’s turnout in Baltimore was killer, as was Philly the night before, Boston the night before that, and Chicago the night before that. Looking forward to Nashville, then LA and finally San Diego. This book tour has been positively kick-ass.

PANDEMIC is out!

Ken Thornhill goes crazy for PANDEMIC

Junkies, the five-year wait is finally over: PANDEMIC is in stores today. What a relief to see this bad boy finally hit shelves. Kindle and Nook available from those vendors, and the hardcover available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local bookstore (but call your local first to make sure they have it available, I don’t want you to waste a trip). [Note: Audiobook is coming soon at Audible. We're working on it. Hoping it'll be out within two weeks, but that's out of our control.]

Yes, you too can be as happy as Russel Kew (right) when you get your hot little mitts on this scorching, girthy tome of worldwide devastation. Or, maybe, the book will drive you stark-raving insane as it did for Ken Thornhill (pictured up top).

Buy yours today. No foolin’.

And remember, you can get autographed, personalized hardcovers from Borderlands Books in San Francisco, just call them at (415) 824-8203.

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.

Instragram & not being a judgmental ass

Instagram expert!

There’s only two things I hate in this world: people who are intolerant of other people’s sub-cultures, and Hipsters.

When Instagram came out several years ago and Twitter became flooded with amateur photos meant to look like bad 70s Polaroids, I said, “Why on Earth would anyone brag about photos that intentionally throw away three [...]
