DVD review: Rosemary’s Baby remake

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 →


Here it is! It’s been two years since we launched GFL Book IV, THE MVP, and finally the saga of Quentin Barnes and the Ionath Krakens continues.

Quentin Barnes and his Krakens just achieved ultimate glory on the gridiron. No sooner did they get down to the locker room after the massive post-game celebration than Messal the Efficient — Quyth Worker and manager of the Krakens — told Quentin there was a message from his sister, Jeanine. Jeanine was on Quentin’s yacht, the Hypatia, which was piloted by Frederico Esteban Guissepe Gonzaga, the private investigator Quentin hired to protect her. Under attack by an unknown assailant, Fred had no choice by to take the Hypatia into the Portath Cloud, the “Bermuda Triangle” of the galaxy, from which no ship returns.

The signed, numbered, limited-edition hardcover ships Sept 30, get your pre-order in now. These will be sold-out by Christmas, folks. YA sports scifi goodness for all.

We’re projecting October 30 for the audiobook release date on Audible, iTunes and Amazon.

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


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:

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.
