Ever scoff at the semi-transparent Sklorno of the Siglerverse? Well, Doubting Junkie, I give you this stunning video of a juvenile Moray eel. It’s a mind-bender to watch this lil’ guy float along with the current. Now, imagine this effect transplanted to the eight-foot-tall Denver. Oy.Continue Reading →
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, Continue Reading →
And now, a moment to brag a little on my hard-working nephew. He transferred to a new school and is playing his senior year of football in Grand Rapids, MI. His first game? A nice little outing, 221 yards and 3 TDs in the air, 157 yards on the ground including a fourth TD […]Continue Reading →
Ahhhhhh yes, nothing like a room full of Junkies packed in tight, making the Sigler Stank™ as funky as it can get. Our annual event at DragonCon brought out the faithful. We read some stuff from PANDEMIC, we gave away shirts and books and things, we played “Siglerism: Would You Rather?” and also had the […]Continue Reading →

NSFW fiction, read it for free
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.Continue Reading →
BAD MILO is a movie about a poop-monster. That makes it to the screen while the BEVERLY HILLS COP series doesn’t? Wow, Hollywood. Just … wow. Also cute dogs in STAR WARS costumes as film execs promise more real effects and less CGI.
Finally, Supes & Bats square off on the big screen. And Harry Potter dukes it our with Frankenstein? Holy cats. And Swarzenegger gets his zombie-killin’ on? A long episode (6 minutes), but a lot of cool news.

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 […]Continue Reading →

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 […]Continue Reading →
Or, "How a Novel Gets Turned Into a Series, Part One."
The news in case you missed it: my horror novel NOCTURNAL is being pitched as a TV series.
There, I said it. And yes, it’s true.
And as of Monday, July 8, it’s on like Donkey Kong. The pitching part, I mean. No gold-plated Ferrari for me just yet.

So today I did what […]Continue Reading →
