Time marches on, yes, but some some plots don't

Rosemary's Baby DVD review

A short review of the DVD for ROSEMARY’S BABY, the 2014 made-for-TV miniseries remake of the 1968 classic.

If you’ve never seen the original, I highly recommend it. Based on the 1967 novel by Ira Levin, ROSEMARY’S BABY tells the tale of a struggling young couple that move into a hoity-toity Manhattan apartment building. Continue Reading →

New story out today:
“The Sixth Day of Deer Camp”

Volume II of THE APOCALYPSE TRIPTYCH

Apocalypse Triptych by Hugh Howe, John Joseph Adams and Scott Sigler

My latest story is out, “The Sixth Day of Deer Camp.” It is part of THE END IS HERE anthology, Book II of the “Apocalypse Tryptic.”

This story is the sequel to “The Fifth Day of Deer Camp” (see what I did there?) which was in the first volume of this trilogy, THE END IS NIGH. You want Yoopers up against the apocalypse? Brothers and sisters, I provide, eh?

Get it in:
Paperback
Kindle

Will it be podcast?
No, because the anthology isn’t “mine.” John Joseph Adams and Hugh Howey put this series together.

Will there be an audiobook?
Yes, but I don’t know when it will be out. I recorded the audio for my story, so you can continue to revel in my Yooper accents.

If you’ve never seen “speed painting” videos before, they are a hallmark of the new era of digital art and social media. Here’s one from the “Geek-A-Week” feature where artist Len Peralta made me King Joffrey Baratheon (the best character ever in GAME OF THRONES. Three minutes to see how a piece of art comes […]

DVD review: UNDER THE SKIN

Waitaminute ... Scarlet Johansson gets nekkid?

A review of the UNDER THE SKIN DVD and Blu-Ray, starring Scarlett Johansson

So, you’ve got Scarlett Johansson driving a van around the streets of Glasgow, picking up single young men and taking them back to her place for a bit of the ol’ hanky panky. How could that possibly be a bad thing? Introduce a vat of random black goo, that’s how. Duh. It’s like Screenwriting 101, really.

Top 10 microbrews I won’t drink

Oh no! He speaks against the party line!

Beer snobbery is too much

I catch a lot of crap because I am a fan of Bud Light. All you hoity-toity beer snobs lecture me nonstop on drinking “water” or “shit beer,” etc.

On every book tour, it’s the same damn thing: “Why don’t you let me buy you a real beer?” Or, “What, are you still in college?” Follow […]

ALIVE sent to editor

(a.k.a., "Damn, it feels good to be a gangster")

ALIVE by New York Times best-selling author Scott Sigler

Boom! I say, I say, boom!

This is one of the best feelings in the biz, people — sending off a completed manuscript to an editor. We’re ballparking Summer 2015 for this release, but I can’t say for sure until the editor at Del Rey does his thing.

This is effectively the final draft, as he […]

Vote on the Krakens helmet for THE CHAMPION

Galactic Football League Book IV is THE CHAMPION, and you can vote on the helmet in this YA / young adult series.

Junkies, sometimes teams update their helmets. Your favorite NFL team’s lid has likely gone through a few changes: some are dramatic, some are subtle. The Ionath Krakens are considering a helmet re-design for the 2686 season, and team owner Gredok the Splithead has decided to leave it up to you, the fan.

We’ve had problems with overzealous fans “stuffing the ballot box” in previous polls, so you have to have a registered profile to vote. You get one vote. We’ll check IPs if we have to (but we don’t want to). We love you all, but you’re crazy with the ballot-box stuffing, so get your one vote in and let the fans decide!

STEPS TO VOTE:
1) Sign into your account on this site (or create one by clicking here).
2) Put a comment on this post with one of the following choices: Current, Modified #1 or Modified #2

We’ll close the poll at midnight Eastern time on Sunday, June 22. The winning design will be included in the book’s text. Boom!

GoooooOOOO KRAKENS!
