001JW: The Paragirl from West Littleton (Tease)

Even as Folio #1 gets assembled for PDFing, and the Myth gets ready for being put out... Folio #2 is rearing its head. Folio #2: Generations and Originals stakes out beginnings and expands our options a bit. This includes the next Justice Wing Banter Latte serial -- alongside Interviewing Trey and Vilify 5 (which is… Continue reading 001JW: The Paragirl from West Littleton (Tease)

Justice Wing: Greyfalcon

I posted this Concept Art of second tier Justice Wing hero Greyfalcon over at the Patreon (with explanation of her uniform because blah blah blah along with some background details not here). On Twitter, I made mention that Greyfalcon isn’t “Black Canary,” but is enough of a pastiche that I wanted to do the ‘fishnets’ visual… Continue reading Justice Wing: Greyfalcon

The Home Front: Homecoming Part Four

At very long last, the fourth installment of "Homecoming." Interesting things when you're working on a story like this -- especially when there's a long break the way there was with "Homecoming." You evolve as a writer. The world you're writing in evolves and changes. Your priorities change. Your understanding changes. But when you return… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part Four

The Home Front: Homecoming: For Those Who Came In Late

Previously in The Home Front and "Homecoming #1-4:" Decades before the Age of Heroic Intent, the first costumed heroes and super heroes began to appear. The first of these Mystery Men -- and also also the last -- was Knight City's Adrian Wainwright, AKA the Golden Swashbuckler, who began his career in 1923 and retired in… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming: For Those Who Came In Late

Patchwork Worlds: Structuring an inter-related anthology

An interesting comment came up, regarding one of my beta stories on my Patreon. It was a short story -- not, perhaps, the most common thing I write these days (though there's a myth partially completed which would beg to differ) -- and the reader didn't care for it. It's not that he thought it… Continue reading Patchwork Worlds: Structuring an inter-related anthology

023SG: The Goldfish: Rise of the Icthyomancer #1

I'll mention, first off, that this was supposed to be Corbett-877. Liam's keeping his mouth shut, so instead... here you go! The very first 023SG post -- a whole new world. Which is a lie in at least two ways. The first way is simple. All the Mythic Heroes posts I did before? "The Home Front?" "Diamond in… Continue reading 023SG: The Goldfish: Rise of the Icthyomancer #1

“023SG: Goldfish: Rise of the Icthyomancer” begins!

Banter Latte news! The first new Banter Latte serial begins today on Patreon for all Patrons and arrives tomorrow morning right here, free as a grouper. Why the first new Banter Latte serial? Because Corbett-877 told me to shut up and leave it alone, and I owed one last Banter Latte post not counting the Myth. So you… Continue reading “023SG: Goldfish: Rise of the Icthyomancer” begins!

Patreon: Debriefing Leather

As promised and finally here (on the Patreon for $5+) -- a short story that actually had the good manners to stick to being a short story. It's a faster read as a result. It's got a lot in it for shorter, though. (And it's not a short-short by any means.) Marco and the Bagmen… Continue reading Patreon: Debriefing Leather

Leather – a face detail

A fast shot of a smirking Leather, mostly to show off her piercings -- though looking at the shot, I realize we can see her right ear, which has a few, instead of the metalworks in her left ear. As this is one of her formal suits (for slinking around a base or captive heroes,… Continue reading Leather – a face detail

Interviewing Trey #13

After a rather long way away, as we've discussed elsewhere... Interviewing Trey returns -- the second of these serials to be revived. As you'll recall, Todd Chapman's in a bit of a pickle, and I'm afraid his brining isn't over just yet. One aim I have, in the "explaining how villainy works" vein, is the differentiation… Continue reading Interviewing Trey #13

Interviewing Trey: For Those Who Came In Late

In Interviewing Trey #1-12... Some years before, Todd Chapman had been a music journalist for Amplifier magazine. He was given the opportunity to interview a third tier, C-list supervillain named Leather -- an interview which went over the course of a week and served as a crash course in the economics of making a living at super villainy,… Continue reading Interviewing Trey: For Those Who Came In Late

Interviewing Leather: Diverged in a Wood (Patreon)

As hoped for as of yesterday, the first beta of "Diverged in a Wood" is now up on Patreon. I hope people like it. As mentioned before,  "Diverged" is the story of Lora Layton, Leather's older sister... and what happens after the Amplifier magazine article "Interviewing Leather" is published and she realizes that her sister has some… Continue reading Interviewing Leather: Diverged in a Wood (Patreon)
