Melissa Field Melissa Field's blog:
I'm starting a new book! I always wondered when, and if, the feeling and inspiration would come again. I never saw myself as someone who puts out a catalog of books, but as the years passed after The Good Luck Knot, I wondered, will I write another novel? I did other writing, including screenplay...

Well, that happened.


You probably know Kai Lim’s work. You probably love it, too. He’s done a storm of brutal and brilliant stuff lately, and although he does a lot of work for several IPs and licenses (as well as his own stuff), his 40K stuff is justflawless. It’s easily among the best art that...

Today, I ran across an article in a local mag. The lede reads, Snubbed: Why Raleigh isn’t a top 10 emerging beer town.


The article is a response, of sorts, to a listicle in the Seattle Post-Intelligence: America’s Top Ten Emerging Beer Towns.


The list in the SPI doesn’t bother me much. I don’t see...
