About this author

Jason S. Ridler is a professional writer and historian. His novel DEATH MATCH, the first Spar Battersea thriller, set in the madcap world of pro wrestling, is available at Amazon! Sex, drugs and headlocks, oh my!

Doc Ridler has also published over forty short stories in such magazines and anthologies as Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Brain Harvest, Not One of Us, Chilling Tales, Tesseracts Thirteen, and more. His popular non-fiction has appeared in Clarkesworld, Dark Scribe, and the Internet Review of Science Fiction. A former punk rock musician and cemetery groundskeeper, Mr. Ridler holds a Ph.D. in War Studies from the Royal Military College of Canada and lives in Northern California with his wife, two dogs, and two parrots.


Meet Professor Nathaniel Xanadu, my comedic teaching alter ego who teaches one-minute classes on the World of Everything! Mix a little absurdest humor with my very basic drawing skills and VOILA! Hope you enjoy these short videos and, if you do, please share ’em! This one’s on Chicken vs. The Egg!



Enjoy all Five episodes and look forward to more!


Cheers,


Jay

Blood & Sawdust by Jason S. Ridler
"Jason Ridler is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. He seems to have a soft spot for the underdog too. Like Spar Battersea, Milkwood and Malcolm are true underdogs. They cannot catch a break and when they finally have a plan, it's likely..." Read more of this review »

A Triumph For Sakura by Jason S. Ridler
"Fantastic! Jason could single handedly rejuvenate the vampire urban fiction genre. Excellent story with complex characters I loved rooting for. A story you won't regret staying up all night to finish."
