This Is The Post That Goes Ping

... it lets you know that your author is still alive.

It's been a while since I've, uh... communicated? Other than posting to Twitter, which has become sort of a reflexive habit operating almost purely on muscle memory at this point. So I thought it would be a good idea to mention that I am still here.

Hi. I'm still here.

Throwing the Gun: The Pen and Cape Society's Superhero Podcast

Submitted by C B Wright on

Have I talked about this? I know I've tweeted about it, but I'm not sure I've ever talked about it here. Let me rectify that situation...

Shortly after I joined The Pen and Cape Society, four of us started a podcast. It's called Throwing the Gun (named after the trope where villains keep throwing their guns at superheroes) and it comes out... uh... every other month or so (I edit the podcast, and the editing process is usually the long pole in the tent). If you like podcasts and want to give another a try, we just released Episode 11. You can find the entire run in the links below.

The First Year of Curveball is now Free

Submitted by C B Wright on

I know the website has been pretty quiet for the last month, but I've actually been working rather furiously to try to get some things done.

Last October I got the Year One and Year Two runs of Curveball professionally edited, which I then used to update the Curveball Year One Omnibus, and then release Curveball Year Two. Since then I've been trying to move those edits into the individual issues. I finally finished that last week, and delivered a batch of updated issues for my Patreon Subscribers.

Now I've finally updated the versions I sell online, and on top of it all I've also made Issues 1-12 completely free.

I'm 45 today!

Today, in honor of my birthday, I am getting in a car and traveling 10-15 hours (depending on traffic and stops) in order to spend the week with family.

Help Desk Turns 20

Submitted by C B Wright on

In 1993 I’d just graduated college and I decided I wanted to do two things: play punk rock music and publish a radical political newspaper or magazine. To do the first I needed a band; to do the second, I needed a printing press.

I had no idea how to actually put a band together. Putting a band together required people skills—while I’m not exactly a recluse, I’m not good at forging alliances. I’d done some solo recording in the past and hoped that would entice like-minded musicians to sort of drift my way, and then Step Three, and then Profit.

That never happened.
