lord julius Catch Up.

Wizards of the Coast interviewed me & Tim about our Appendix N read-through project, Advanced Readings in D&D. So...that is pretty cool. You know, just the guys who make Dungeons & Dragons got in touch with me because they wanted to interview me. & then you know, put it up on the front page of their website. So, that is a feather in my cap, huh? A little plumage to preen over? I also think Tim & I sound pretty smart in the interview, so that is fun. No big deal. Brush off my shoulder. Scuffle feet bashfully. Then I interviewed Dave Gross over at Paizo, which, you know, just the guys who make Pathfinder, the biggest rival to D&D, letting me blow up their spot, ask their star author some questions. Anyhow, so how cool is that! Pretty cool. Jennifer said to her co-workers, "he's basically a professional geek" & there is a degree of truth to it. It is my agenda! If you're good at something, never do it for free! Well okay I do it for free, plenty, but I'm working on getting more people to pay me for it. Oh hey, speaking of shameful self-promotion, here is a list of what I've been up to for!

Elric by Michael Moorcock.

My Arioch was
"John Carter of Melniboné."
Raistlin is Elric.

The Humanoids by Jack Williamson.

The Inorganics
Are Cylons, Chaos Marines;
these guy's opposite.

Forerunner by Andre Norton.

The big question is?
Are the Forerunners the Drow?
Or, well, vice-versa?

The Carnelian Cube by L. Sprague de Camp & Fletcher Pratt.

Wish upon the Cube,
and then, passive-agressive,
it grants it, but wrong.

King of Chaos by Dave Gross.

A roar of locusts:
Xagren! Antipaladin!
Silent Hill boss fight.

Shadows of the New Sun edited by J.E. Mooney & Bill Fawcett.

He hides his name in
the genetic lycanthrope.
These? In his honor.
