Yes, I'm excited. For the longest time, I just kind of assumed that I would need to self-publish this. I know there's still some stink on the idea of self-publishing, even after the colossal success of The Martian, but . . . I really wanted to get it out there. Fortunately, I fell in league with the twisted folks at Sinister Grin Press. They've got a lot of great, visceral horror there from some names horror fans will recognize.
Many of you have asked about a print version and I am here to assure you that yes, one is indeed coming! And early reviews are positive. One of the strangest (and satisfying) feelings is seeing people you don't know praising your work. I'm grateful.
And I'm grateful for you guys. You, the Select Few. You've been here with me for a while now. Thanks.
So do me a favor, even if the book isn't your 'thing', maybe you can do me a solid and spread the word. Tell a friend who might like it. And of course, tell your Nana. She'll dig it the most.
Oh! And again, I'm going to send something groovy out to the mailing list in the next few days. There's a link over on the side there. If you want in on the goods, go for it!
I'm trying to put together some sort of livestream reading of a bit of the book, too. Is that something you guys would be into? (More past the break!)
Yes, indeed! I saw it. It was fantastic. I don't go to the movies often, mostly because of my aversion to other people that go to the movies, but I broke down and caught a Friday matinee of it. It was hysterical. Ryan Reynolds nailed it. Lots of in-jokes without alienating the audience. Absurd violence. Puerile humor. Excellent flick all around.
The image you see above is from my favorite interpretation of Deadpool. It's Rick Remender's run on Uncanny X-Force. Deadpool, in his 25 year history, has been presented in a few ways. Mostly, he's an uber-violent Bugs Bunny. In Remender's story, he's still the clown, but strangely, he's also it's moral center. He's got the best moments in the entire arc and some of them are actually sincerely heartfelt. The only stumbling block is that it's steeped heavily in 90s X-Men continuity. I know that era pretty well, but some of it was kind of impenetrable. I can't recommend it unless you're up on your X-Men lore. But if you are . . . it's damned good.
SCAM SCHOOL & MODERN ROGUE
Make no mistake! These are two different things. Brian and I met this weekend so we could get moving on filming new Modern Rogue episodes. We've got some fun stuff planned and a lot of it is more than a little dangerous.
In case you can't wait, I'm on Scam School semi-regularly now. Here's the latest, in which Brian has us do horrible things. You might recognize my friend, Will, from Double Toasted!
I didn't expect to be playing Firewatch when I went on last week, but it was fun! In spite of all of my bluster, I genuinely do appreciate when developers try to do something different. This is that 'something different'. I've said for a while that Indie games are where all of the cool innovations are happening. This is no exception. I'm looking forward to playing the rest of it. . .
. . . and hacking up those kids with a machete. (That does happen eventually, right?)
