with a faraway-look
and a scythe in his hand,
and when people saw him,
they used to say,

-William Shakespeare, The Tempest
Last week a reader asked me what inspired my book, Rachel and the Mighty Arm that Built Egypt. I answered her privately, but here I will share publicly with more detail. The a...Read more of this blog post »
Man, I hope Tommy is doing alright, there's a lot of radicalized Muslims in UK prisons who'd love to have the chance to rip him to pieces. Quite literally; they love their beheadings, and whoever finishes him off would basically be seen as a hero within the prison system and some British Mu... Read more of this blog post »

I first noticed Daniel Olesen’s The Eagles’s Flight in the 2017 Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off. It was in the same section as Toric’s Dagger, and while neither book won through, they both made it to the semi-final stage, with Daniel’s book getting a rather more positive review than mine. It soun...Read more of this blog post »
Ihr wisst ja, ich laufe. Also, für Sport. So richtig. Gut, eigentlich nicht richtig, aber schon regelmäßig, und auch seit mehreren Jahren.
Trotzdem lässt die Performance optisch wohl noch immer zu wünschen übrig. Elegant wie eine Gazelle? Eher nicht. Flink wie ein Reh? Würde ich nicht sagen.

The hardest part when you're getting started is to build up momentum.
But once you've got momentum it's like you're sitting in a car that's already driving.
And all you'd have to do to drive faster is to put your foot on the gas pedal and you'd be able to drive faster.
