James  Steele James Steele's blog:

The rumors are flying that Space Jam 2 is happening. Since there is no reason why not, and Hollywood continues to milk the nostalgia cow, I'd say it's inevitable.

How can Space Jam 2 best capture the spirit of the original? The first Space Jam was a time capsule of everything that was popular in t... Read more of this blog post »

In case you missed it, I shared a short PDF eBook with eight Multiplex Movie Review comics on Patreon and elsewhere (publicly/free/etc.) Some of those comics might be new to you. But that got me thinking… which is never a good thing…

After a few weeks off, Dark Sun is back:) I made ita brand new cover, since sadly I couldn’t take Anne Cain’s amazing cover with me, and put it up on Amazon! It’s at half price, since it’s a rather old book. I didn’t do much changing to this one, just a few things here […] Read more of this blog post »

Someone said—I don't remember whom—that we cannot define a novel, a chapter, or even a paragraph, but a sentence—we know what that is. I find that to be right and true as any definition of a literary object larger than a sentence can be refuted using counter-examples. The variety is so vast that... Read more of this blog post »

What's a cover reveal without a story, right?
