Review: Fullmetal Alchemist (Live-Action Movie)

 Fullmetal Alchemist, the Netflix flick. Quick reaction and some minorish spoilerish items ahoy:   Nowhere near as good as the original or Brotherhood, but that’s to be expected when squishing an anime from 50+ episodes down to a ~2hr movie. Folks who are not familiar with the anime will probably think it’s fine, but there’s […]

Bad Amazon Ads

 Attention authors, particularly indie authors who are doing their own marketing: If you are not treating your advertising with at least the same respect as your book, you’re throwing away your money. In fact, you may be damaging your career. On my Kindle Touch is an advertisement for a book that almost screams “do not […]

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

 So I’m binge-watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and I have to admit I’m really liking the show. I’m up to season two, episode nineteen, and it’s been solidly entertaining for the whole trip (so far!) One of the funny things is there are a couple of folks from Sons of Anarchy showing up as minor […]

Sojourner Tales

 Last year, the brilliant team of Tracy and Laura Hickman came up with an interesting idea for a game system based around stories. They set up a Kickstarter campaign to get it rolling. It did pick up enough funding to not only produce the game, but enough to use some quality materials. Even the box, […]

Nice review of Angels Cried

 “Big Al” left a nice 4-star review on Amazon for the charity anthology Angels Cried. He called out two particular stories, one of which was my short story titled For Christmas, I Made My Mother Cry. From the review: A couple of the stories stood above the rest for me. For Christmas, I Made My […]


 Since Tonya and I collaborate on work, and she is also my full-time business manager, we needed to get organized. I poked around, looking at project management tools. I needed something that we could both get up to speed on quickly, which ruled out Microsoft Project. I wanted something we could share on different laptops, […]

Some Adult Fare – Full-Metal Orgasm

 I’m a fan of Heavy Metal magazine, particularly before the first movie came out. I also enjoy manga and anime, particularly Shirow Masamune’s work (Ghost in the Shell and Appleseed). Toss in a bit of Hajime Sorayama, crazy Bizarro-inspired violence and sex, and you have the essence of Full-Metal Orgasm. Full-Metal Orgasm is a sexy […]

Booze & Books reviews Fifty Shades of Decay

 Booze and Books took a look at Fifty Shades of Decay, and gave the anthology four cocktails. Ann, the reviewer, pointed out two stories — one by Benjamin Kane Ethridge (Z Spot), and my short story, Rabbits. She said: “Rabbits, by Guy Anthony De Marco, is a rather bleak story that features a zombie with […]
