Current & Unpublished Writing Projects

Stay up to date with my crap by following me on Facebook, Twitter, and my newsletter, MASSTRONAUT.

Broken Lines

Broken Lines is an illustrated novel. A waitress, a cowboy, and a little spaceman wander America’s highways in a stolen rental van, pursued by evil firemen who are mostly stupid. It’s funny and sorta weird and I really like it. I’ve been working on this project very intermittently for a couple of decades, reinventing it every seven years or so. In its current incarnation, it’s 240 pages of prose, artwork, charts, footnotes, and sidebars. I aim to complete it by the end of 2017. Perhaps some day it will cause clearance tables across our great nation to lament and creak mightily. An author can dream. [PROJECT PAGE]

Mind The Gap

A time travel story I’ve been chipping away at for a couple of years. I think I wrote two full drafts and chucked the bulk of them out (the problem with writing time travel is that when you think too hard about it, it makes your face pop off). MTG is currently being harshly judged by a trusted reader.

Empyrean

I sketched out a big plot outline for a sci-fi story set aboard a derelict spaceship. A somewhat daunting project. I’ve already written two sections of it and dig it so far. Needs a second draft and some heavy thinking.

Dead Mall

A promising first draft of a chronicle of working at an All For A Dollar in the mid-nineties.

Bygone

A series of science fiction short stories about a girl and her robot, set in a rural future where most people have left Earth behind. No dystopian horseshit. I’ve got three stories done, and ideas for a few more. The first story appears in issue #65 of Andromeda Spaceways.

Metal Quest

I’m in the early stages of working with Matt Smith (Barbarian Lord and Lake Of Fire) on a story that will undoubtedly include demons and heavy metal. [PROJECT PAGE].

This Town

What if time travel is just getting drunk? – Out for submission.

The Bottle Man

Dug up a half-decent idear. – Out for submission.

Nonexistent Works

All of my nonexistent writing is under exclusive contract with Naught Books.
