SALLEE ROBOT FIGHTER 2017 A. D.


Now, I wasn't fighting an Octo-Robot, but I did dismantle my PC with my bare hands so I could remove the hard drive. It is now repurposed as a frame for a photo of my dog. Or...is it?????????

ANOTHER COPY OF THE HOLY TERROR REAR ITS UGLY HEAD



Mike Olson now has a copy of the Zeising edition of THE HOLY TERROR, thanks to my pal Chris, who found a copy in Anchorage. I had been ready to have eBay mail him this signed copy that's been up there forever.

Does anybody ever notice that I asked Mark Zeising to put a period in the title and he did indeed do that.

Oh, and I don't know who that monster doll is because I'm dumb.

POLAR VORTEX 29-30 JAN 19










Photos c USA Today and Chicago Tribune, the boring photo of South Leclaire Avenue is c me.Sooner or later someone will bring the vortex up or I'll have to look it up and so putting photos on my blog will at least ensure that Russia sees them. Pretty crazy few days. Official low hit -52 with the wind chill and we stayed below zero for 82 straight hours.

SUPERGIRL AT THE BELMONT EL STATION







These photos were taken by my good friend Darci Stratton. Normally, I would be exiting the elevated platform on the opposite side of Belmont. As luck would have it, I was closer to the stairwell on the southern side, otherwise I would have missed the amazing advertisements for the Supergirl show airing on the CW. This was the only platform that had any advertisements (not even posters) when you usually get beaten over the head with ads for new products or movies or apps.

The photos go back to October of 2015 but I'm throwing them up here because my publishing life has no news and at least these are shots of my home away from home. Elevated train stations. Thanks again, Darci.
