Update #0001

I should probably get back to blogging at a semi-regular basis (hopefully I can manage this).
Here is the link for the online e-zine of Gone Lawn #6
I hope you enjoy "The Action which Wolves Do towards the Moon." Whose title is an allusion to Allen Ginsberg's poem "Howl" which inspired this work.
After somewhat of a writing hiatus, I'm going to get back on a regimen of trying to edit my novel and work on the sequel.

This past week I did go out and watch Sherlock Holmes A Game of Shadows. It was relatively good, following some of the same tropes set forth in the first film. Overall it was on par with its predecessor. Professor Moriarty was an excellent villain in the film. Although my familiarity with the older series starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce somewhat tainted my opinion of the new Sherlock Homes films. In itself, the films are excellent in setting Sherlock Homes in the authentic time period. But the character dynamic and interaction was not quite what I had anticipated. But it was good overall.
