Update: The Rifter #64 Now Available, Podcast Appearance, Detroit Fanfare, and Incoming Posts!

There’s a bit to cover this update, so I’ll get right to it.

First, I was lucky enough to sit in with 3Men2Souls for another of their podcasts earlier this month.  We had a great time trying to figure out how the multiverse theory allows us to blame all possible problems on our friend Nick Brodie, as well as cracking each other up to no end. I don’t think we really discussed anything, but damn was it ever fun.  You can find it, and many more of their episodes, here.

Next, The Rifter #64 is now available for pre-order on Palladium Books’ website!  My story ‘A Cold Night, Dead Past’ will feature in this issue, and I couldn’t be more excited. Working with the fine folks at Palladium like Wayne Smith, as well as the legendary Kevin Siembedia, is a dream come true.  I’ll post another update when the issue ships, but you can order yours now here!

I’ll be attending the Detroit Fanfare convention in Dearborn, MI this weekend (Oct. 26-7), so if you’re in the area send me an email and maybe I’ll see you there! Look for the Palladium Books booth, since I’ll most likely be nearby kissing Siembedia’s feet.

Finally, there’s a few new posts incoming over the next few weeks. I have a lot of work ahead of me and behind me, meaning sporadic updates are the name of the game right now. However, I’m really excited about some of the projects I’m currently working on, and can’t wait to share more of them with you as they develop. For now, I’ll just say that over the next month or so I’m tentatively planning to include:

  • An article or articles regarding several shows and events in Toronto I’ve attended recently.
  • A Movember marathon chronicling my soon-to-be-shorn beard’s triumphant return (after a moustachioed detour).
  • Some music review/interviews with a couple of local Toronto artists
  • Maybe even more…
Stay tuned!

Update: Short Fiction with Palladium Books Published Soon!

Hello everyone,

My short story ‘A Cold Night, Dead Past’ will be published in the next issue of The Rifter by Palladium Books!

A gritty sci-fi piece taking place in the rich setting of Rifts, the post-apocalyptic role-playing game from Palladium, this story revolves around a cyborg headhunter named Frost in the ruins of old Quebec City, now simply known as Old Bones.

Featured with the story is artwork by the amazing Chuck Walton, whose rendition of the main character is absolutely incredible! I’m absolutely blown away by the work he’s done to bring Frost to life. You can view his work here.

I’m very happy to be working with Palladium Books, and I’ll have future updates with more details as they happen! Stay tuned!

Brett
