Golden States


The surf was kind of lame after work, so I caught the requisite three waves to qualify the outing as a session and sped home.  I scribbled the rough draft of a map that I hope will anchor an article called, "Golden States." It occurred to me that all of the modern/horror/alternate history stuff I want to to write or have written takes place in California.

     With that in mind, I want to scribble a brief article/extended introduction/handout that talks about each of the series, shows where they take place, how they relate to one another and to specify which year they occur. I think it will help me to organize things in my mind, as well as providing a guide for the reader.

     In other news, with today's mailing there are just over 1,000 copies of the zine in circulation. I think we really have a nice thing going, folks. Thank you for your support and please continue to spread the word. Have a great night, all. :)

    1. I really credit the readers with the growth. Left to my own devices, the readers would include me, Master Cylinder, my wife and maybe Miss Ballerina Heartman.

    1. I hope it's nicer than the real California sandbox. Yesterday at the beach I saw dirty diapers, a used condom, cigarette butts and lots of fast food wrappers.

    1. Thank you, sir. I am also fond of "Ivan Don't Surf" for a Twilight 2000 series set in San Diego. :)

    I believe there's a saving throw bonus again at 5k and 10k.
