ARTICLES

Procession of the Damned – An article I did for Ron Hogan’s Beatrice.com about Charles Fort, America’s great high poet of the weird and unexplained.

My Favorite Vampires — A guest blog I did for the Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver on the bloodsuckers who have carved their way to my heart.

The Big Idea — Bestselling author John Scalzi was kind enough to lend me some space on his blog, Whatever, to discuss what happens when real-world events overtake your fictional vampire spy novel. (Or, to put it another way: was Osama Bin Laden really a lizardman?)

My Top 10 ComicsThe Comics Buyer’s Guide let me pay homage to the books that really put me on the path to being a writer: my favorite comics. (Single issues only. My favorite comics series and graphic novels are the subjects of entirely different lists. Of course.)

America’s First Superhero — A piece I did for the Los Angeles Times and Hero Complex on Abraham Lincoln.

OTHER FICTION

Saturday Night Dead: An Oral History Of SNL During The Zombie Outbreak — A short story I did that combines two of the abiding obsessions of my adolescence: zombies and Saturday Night Live.
