Okay, my long-neglected readers. It's time to let you in on my side-project that's about to become my main project, as far as writing for public consumption goes. It's called The Escape Hatch.

Yes, I'm afraid it's a travel blog. And it's going to be awesome. Because, dear friends, my wife and I have decided to quit our jobs and travel around South America for a year. Our budget will not give mu... Read more of this blog post »

I can't remember how I found out about this book, but it was probably a recommendation from John Mantooth. (Read his stuff.) In Search Of starts off with a glowing introduction from Jeffrey Ford praising the Literary Merit and Exquisite Imagery of Wi ...more

Douglas Adams
“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Hunter S. Thompson
“We can't stop here, this is bat country!”
Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Nelson Algren
“You don't write a novel out of sheer pity any more than you blow a safe out of a vague longing to be rich. A certain ruthlessness and a sense of alienation from society is as essential to creative writing as it is to armed robbery.”
Nelson Algren, Nonconformity

Groucho Marx
“I sent the club a wire stating, PLEASE ACCEPT MY RESIGNATION. I DON'T WANT TO BELONG TO ANY CLUB THAT WILL ACCEPT ME AS A MEMBER.”
Groucho Marx, Groucho and Me

“Fourth Doctor: You know, the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common: they don't alter their views to fit the facts; they alter the facts to fit their views.”
Chris Boucher

Thank you very much! It'll take me another month, of course, to actually finish the novel.
