I'm a journalist and author from Milwaukee, WI. I've written for a wide range of publications and have authored 3 non-fiction books: Heroes in the Night (2013), Monster Hunters (2015), and Apocalypse Any Day Now (2019). I also contributed a chapter to The Supernatural in Society, Culture, and History (2018). I have two books out in 2020: Wisconsin Legends & Lore and American Madness.

I write a weekly column on my website called "Tea's Weird Week." I have a great love for unique people and wild and crazy subject matters.

Tea’s Weird Week: Trump’s Joe Scarborough Conspiracy Obsession

[image error]


Memorial Day weekend— a chance to enjoy relaxation, grill out, and remember those who have sacrificed their lives fighting for our country. Or if you’re President Trump, a time to spend golfing and then spiraling into a tweetrage hurling insults, threats, and conspiracy theories. Can you imagine Obama or Bush acting like this? They’d be led out of the White House in a straitjacket

This was an excellent novel that is themed on nostalgia and the desire to go back in time to get our lives right. As an 80s kid, I loved all the 80s references. Someday Jennifer is a fun read.

"Krulos strikes again

Yea Krulos is one of the best chroniclers out there of the totally craziness of our world today, and he does not disappoint in this book. He has a wickedly keen eye for high strangeness and a great voice to bring it to light. Well" Read more of this review »

Rlsh Do any of you not get Tea's persecutive here? This is reality. It's not an illusion. He is reporting facts. Do not question that.


message 1: by Rlsh

Rlsh I'm Geist. And I'm a Real-Life Superhero.

I've recently finished reading Tea Krulos's book, “Heroes in the Night.”

I LOVED the book, but I don't think my point of view is very objective and I admit to that. In fact, I'm mentioned in the book more than I'd like, but I'll try to set that aside.

This is the most accurate historical depiction of the Real-Life Superhero community I've seen to this date. The “Insider voice” is really what has happened to my knowledge. Frankly, I didn't think he knew so much. But everything I read is true.

I have to say that I was surprised and also pleased that it wasn't just a compilation of Tea Krulos's already existing blogs about our subculture, which are also excellent reading.

It was so much more. And I was amazed. And that is such a small word to describe it.

The depth of research and number of side-bars that referred back to the topics actually had me learning things about things I thought I already knew.

The color photos were also very cool. I love to see my RLSH friends in color.

Tea has been known of in our culture for a number of years. We always knew that he was a “friendly voyeur” who one-day wanted to publish a book about us. I think he was doing friendly research of us for five or seven years. And we accepted him and didn't mind. But he's always a journalist with ethics and stuff.

In his and our wildest dreams... A few of us gave him hope and a few of us scoffed at his attempt to publish an actual book about the Real-Life Superhero movement.

We've allowed Tea to participate in our patrols. Some with genuine encouragement and some with tolerance and humor.

I've met Tea five times in four cities. He's a good guy and I always knew he was a good writer. I'm a good reader and saw a lot of talent.

It seems that Tea Krulos has panned out as a journalist at heart. If any of us misspoke, it's there. If we did well, it's there. We are both heroes at times and fools at others, it's all there in the book.

Tea captures it
