The book, which is currently titled Transcendent, will bring Dez and Kale’s story to a close. It will answer all those burning questions about Dez’s parentage, how Sixes came to be–and the original question–how WAS Dez able to touch Kale in the first place? I’ve been sitting on this for a whi...

Nyarlathotep is perhaps the most interesting of the Lovecraftian Deities. He is arguably the only one who had a developed persona in Lovecrafts own lifetime and the one most involved in human affairs while at the same time being one of the most, perhaps the most, alien and incomprehensible of the...

Why Did ModCloth's Founder Double-Down on This Social Media Screw-Up


I am an unbiased professional (wink), meaning I can’t tell you how unhappy I am that Walmart acquired ModCloth back in March. Therefore, I won’t tell you. You’ll have to come to your own conclusions.
