Boskone 55 Round-Up

I’m back from Boskone, aka “New England’s longest running science fiction convention.” Boskone is big enough to bring in great guests/panel participants, and yet small enough so that it still feels relatively cozy.

Cliché as resolutions may be, I think having a certain time of year — be it the New... Continue Reading →

HEART BLADE, Blade Hunt Chronicles #1, kicked off the year in February, and has garnered some great reviews.       It's been a terrific year, which included some fun blog and web interviews,...
