This is my writing blog. I will post writing on it, both fiction and nonfiction. By me, for preference.

As often as possible, I'll be posting 2000-word chapters of my serial novel Strike in the Shining City. I court feedback, especially at this early stage where it'll be easier to correct defects in plot and characterization.

This will also be a home for short stories, scripts, poems, etc. They'll likely have a science fiction or fantasy bent to them. Unless they don't.

The Spell of Vesperia (Nanowrimo 2010 Novel):

Strike in the Shining City:
I, II, III, IV, V.

Short Stories:
50-Word Short Story #1, #2, #3, #4.
500-Word Short Story #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6.
A Brief History of Metal, Exhumed, The Goose Girl part I, II, Latitudes, Ogre, Share and Share Alike, The Taxman
Things in History You Should Know: Queen Crisantha, Things in History You Should Know: Hal Kolger.

Completed Longer Work:

Sonnets: Machina, On Waiting.

John A. Macdonald and the Pacific Scandal, Pierre Trudeau, Sir Matthew Baillie Begbie, John Diefenbaker.

Also, here are most of my nonfiction history articles, as published in the University of Lethbridge's student newspaper, the Meliorist. Some drabbles are posted in the blog, but not listed here.

And, ahem, I have started to write some Doctor Who fanfiction, which is hosted elsewhere. Sue me, I love that show.

Thank you for visiting. Enjoy your stay.


  1. Are you writing from May 2020? That's awesome! You don't just like 'Doctor Who', you're traveling in the TARDIS, aren't you?

  2. I definitely am. All the so-called 'contemporary' posts are just guesses of what I might have been doing if I wasn't all over the timestream.

    Travelling with the Doctor is swell. I'm in much better shape, what with the constant running away and all, and I've only accidentally unleashed cosmic forces greater than any mere mortal once. You'd be amazed what duct tape fixes.
