To Pirates tat!

Johnny Mushet's To Pirates tat

When it rains, it pours! Another Siglerism tat, this one the To Pirates logo from everyone’s favorite YA scifi/sports series. This lovely logo decorates the arm of Junkie Johnny Mushet. He’s from Scotland. That’s right, Scotland Siglerism.

The Pirates logo was designed by our own in-house graphics maestro, Scott [...]

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.

Regaining that sense of wonder

Old, crotchety and judgemental is no way to go through life, son.

I remember being twelve years old. I remember pedaling two or three miles to TJ’s Party Store. You know the way: down my dirt road, onto the highway, over the bridge, past the other party store the kids didn’t like to go because the old lady would stare at you like a hawk watching [...]

Junkies, I am brain dead (and yes, to those of you who say “what’s new?” I say “ha ha ha” and also “aren’t you proud of yourself for mocking me while I am too dumb to fight back?”).

 

I’m working on PANDEMIC line-edits. That means the final draft has been approved and passed [...]
