And today I finished and uploaded my latest one: an appreciation for Legendary Kong, the version of Kong from the … Continue reading Kaiju Appreciations: Legendary Kong

Very excited to finally announce my next publication: a very different kind of project than any I've done before, and one that I've been working on again and off again for a year or more (I once thought it would be ready in April, which is either a testament to hope or an indictment of … Continue reading Coming Soon: ‘A Gentleman Instructed’
