Sixteen years ago, if you’d told me that one day I’d be under studio lights with Chris Somos asking me to ‘hold that pose, yeah, just like that’ from behind a camera, my puberty might’ve become a fair bit more confusing than it already was.
But it happened. There’s proof. One surprisingly cold night in October of 2015, I found myself having a surprisingly good time in a photo shoot with one of my oldest, dearest, and surprising friends.
For anyone in the Toronto area (or willing to take a road trip/international flight) who’s interested, my favourite downtown nerd shop the Hairy Tarantula is having their Autumn Sale!
Although I haven’t had a chance to examine their inventory lately as I’m currently enjoying the un-sunshine here in beautiful Vancouver, Hairy T usually carries Palladium Books products and may still have copies of The Rifter #64 or #66, both of which contain short fiction by yours truly!
RPG books are 40% off according to the discount list, so feel free to drop by and grab one for almost half price – and if they’re all out, make sure to demand more Brett Caron fiction! I’m not advocating public nudity in every situation that may arise, but I guarantee they’ll remember you if you take your pants off.
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!
