Read this Week

Read On Spec #82 this week; I’ve been slow to catch up on my magazine subscriptions because I’ve been reading some ‘research novels’. A strong issue, as always, with several interesting stories and really cool cover. And just as I finish it issue #83 arrives! Which was also a delight because at the end of […]

Review for “Digital Rights”

A positive though short review for Writers of the Future 26 went up at SF Site… not sure if its been there for a while but ego-surfing today I stumbled across it. My story and Adam Colston’s are the only ones really discussed, with both of us getting nice reviews. Specifically for ‘Digital Rights’ Sandra […]

Intergalactic Medicine Show

I’ve been a subscriber to the online magazine Intergalactic Medicine Show for about half a year now and though I haven’t had time to read all the issues the few I have read have been fantastic. Anyways one of the reasons I haven’t read more of the backlog (you have access to all prior issues […]

Dragon Age 2 Demo

Several visitors to this blog asked me to check out the Dragon Age 2 demo and I finally had the chance to do so last night. (Note: I played it on the xbox360… for comparison I never played Dragon Age Origins on a console, only the PC) Please keep in mind that this is only […]

Preparing for a career in the games industry

Generally I only receive questions from college students or older adults asking how to get into the videogames industry but recently a sixteen year old asked me for some advice. This is basically the e-mail I sent back and I’m wondering what other advice those of you reading this might give as well. … Hi! […]

BioWare Employees

I’m getting a lot of cool folks stopping by here and thanking me for games I worked on in the past with BioWare. But I really can’t take all the credit for the games you have all loved, heck I can hardly take any of the credit. Few BioWare folks seem to have websites (or […]

Dragon Age 2

So I’m getting a bit more traffic than usual to this little blog and figured I’d give a bit of a shout out to those of you coming here curious about me, BioWare, Dragon Age, and Dragon Age 2. Hi! I haven’t played the Dragon Age 2 demo yet so I can’t really comment on […]

iBooks store

So yeah demonstrating the extent of my geekiness I was very pleased to notice yesterday that most of my story reprints are now available in the iBook store for Apple devices. While not quite as cool as holding a new magazine with a story of mine in it, this comes a close second. Just go […]

Writers of the Future XXVI Review

Diabolical Plots has posted a review of Writers of the Future XXVI, the first full review of the anthology that I’ve seen so far. There’s some spoilers over there so don’t go read it unless you’ve already read the anthology. I’m pleased with my review, I think the criticisms levied against my story are certainly […]

Auroras, Stories, and More

Just a reminder that my story ‘Digital Rights’ is free right now as part of a Smashword promotion. If you are Canadian and enjoy it please consider nominating it for an Aurora reward. If you are not Canadian and liked it please consider writing a Smashword’s review (and if you are on Empire Avenue let […]
