Actually, Victoria, B.C. is only a couple hours north of Seattle, Wash., where more rain is seen than snow. Since snow isn't really a pressing issue, Bruce spends more time trying to remember to leave the "u" out of words like "colour" and "neighbour" than he does shovelling. The father of two, Bruce is also the trophy husband of burlesque diva Miss Rosie Bitts.

Bruce's first short story, "Another Man's Shoes" was published in the Winter 2008 edition of Cemetery Moon. "Yardwork" was made

Spirit of the King by Bruce Blake
"I read 60% of this book, until the paragraph below:

"I pressed his blood-streaked face into my cunt, smothering his with my womanhood and his own cum. My thumb finds his eye. I push hard until his eyeball pops and is forced into his brain, killing him" Read more of this review »

Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card
Rate this book
Clear rating
I may be an oddball in this but, as much as I loved Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead is my favourite in the series. It is such a surprising continuation of Ender's story, packed full of emotion and original concepts. A must read!
