Second edition rules

November 15th, 2018

I’m not really keen on the self-promotion game, but I feel obligated to inform you that Advanced Death Saves is now available through Comixology. This follow-up to the original Death Saves anthology further explores matters of tragic mortality around the gaming table, and expands the concept beyond the boundaries of the heroic fantasy genre. It […]

My good pal, occasional collaborator, and Destiny brother Daniel Butler was doing quick sketch card commissions a while back, so I threw some cash his way for a quartet of favorite horror flick characters. Mythic Helen (Virginia Madsen) from Candyman and Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) from Halloween were for Maura, and Verden Fell (Vincent Price) […]

The end of my Warhammer campaign also marked the end of my direct involvement in Sci-Fi Club business. I still held on to the presidency to prevent some other joker using it as a bully pulpit, but I grew less interested in the day-to-day goings-on within the org’s social circle. As much as I enjoyed […]

Eulogy for a king

February 26th, 2018

In April 2016, Maura and I gathered the quartet of feral feline siblings who’d taken up residence in our garage and brought them to the vet’s office to be spayed. The two short-haired sisters — a tuxedo cat dubbed Nubby and a gray tabby named Little Baby Setz — turned out to be extremely pregnant, […]

Back to Wax #6: If not for him

January 16th, 2018

2014 started with my car getting destroyed by a collision with a dump truck, and it only got worse from there. I was already grappling with various existential crises at the time. Then came nauseating whiplash between hope and despair that ended with a miscarriage, some truly grim epiphanies, and an extended stay in the […]

The summer between my freshman and sophomore years at UMass Boston saw me in a better place than I’d known in, well, most of my nineteen years. I’d switched majors from physics to English, and pulled myself back from academic probation to make it onto the Dean’s List. There was money in my pocket, thanks […]

The Warhammer Fantasy Role Play campaign I started for my new college pals continued to build up steam through the spring of 1991. In addition to the core group of players — Mike (human pit fighter), Eugene (human apprentice wizard), “Father Flynn” (herbalist-turned-druid), and “Southie” Dave (halfling thief) — several other Sci-Fi Club members took […]

Outflow, inbox

December 14th, 2017

I recounted a embarrassing personal anecdote a few years back, which good pal Cathy Leamy offered to render in comics form. She did a fantastic job with it (and was adamant about getting the feline supporting cast as accurate to their real-life counterparts as possible. Other than that, there is isn’t much I can add…except […]

Today we’re going to dabble in a dark art that always makes me cringe with existential terror. That’s right, it’s SELF-PROMOTION TIME. The crowdfunding campaign for Advanced Death Saves has gone live! Like its predecessor, the anthology features tales of tragedy lifted straight from the gaming table, written and illustrated by an amazing roster of […]

Cooking with gas

May 19th, 2017

Peter was the morning shift cook at the hospital kitchen where I worked in high school. He had about ten years on me, though you wouldn’t have know from his looks and antics. He lived for stupid pranks and tasteless jokes of a type that made our supervisor wince before delivering a stern lecture. In […]
