023SG: The Formation

This entry is part 1 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

As we stated in the teaser yesterday, today we begin the bridging 'meta' series between The Home Front -- the era of Mystery Men up through the second World War and its immediate aftermath (specifically capping around 1950, if this post is any judge, though "My White Plume" is a letter written in 1952, so take these… Continue reading 023SG: The Formation

The Home Front: Homecoming Part Four

This entry is part 2 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

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

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

This entry is part 3 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

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

The Home Front: Homecoming Part Three

This entry is part 4 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

A bit late, but here's the third part of "Homecoming," here in The Home Front. This particular file got corrupted, so I didn't have any choice but to rewrite about half of it, which put things off a bit. And here we are! Of course, it occurs to me that Greg Fishbone, my former editor,… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part Three

The Home Front: Homecoming Part Two

This entry is part 5 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

I'm about halfway through part eleven of "Interviewing Leather." It seemed wise not to push to get it done and possibly compromise what may be one of the more engaging bits (or not be, depending on how well it goes, of course). On the other hand, it certainly can go up on Thursday without any… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part Two

The Home Front: Homecoming Part One

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

Leather, sadly, will have to wait until Thursday, or even to next week. There was just no writing time...well, at all since last Thursday. None. Not a jot. Which isn't normal for me, but it's start of school. And you know... start of school. So, we move on to the last of the Home Front… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part One

The Home Front: Diamond in the Rough

This entry is part 7 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

One of my favorite story drivers, bar none, is The Big Change. The Big Change is exactly what it sounds like. Something happens to change the world, change society, change the way things have always been done, and then everyone has to deal with it. Theftworld and Trigger Man both deal with the same Big… Continue reading The Home Front: Diamond in the Rough

The Home Front: Spycracker and Torpedo

This entry is part 8 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

This is the second Home Front story, though it was the first I wrote. I hadn't submitted it to Greg at Mythic Heroes yet, mind, though I was going to eventually. The Home Front got its start, more directly than almost anything else I'm putting on here, in Superguy. Superguy, for those of you unfamiliar… Continue reading The Home Front: Spycracker and Torpedo

The Home Front: My White Plume

This entry is part 9 of 9 in the series Mythic Heroes

This is a story that occupies a special place in my heart: it was my first full on professional publication. The magazine was called Mythic Heroes: The Serialized Superhero Prose Alternative, and in a lot of ways it was the first attempt of the Superguy authors to try and make a (very) small amount of… Continue reading The Home Front: My White Plume
