His work has appeared in Mind's Eye Fiction, alongside notables Stephen King, Fred Saberhagen, and Harlan Ellison. All of this is often used by his friends to lasso him to a keyboard, beat him over the head, and yell "WRITE MORE!"
He runs a periodic media review site called Coyote Reviews, whose mandate is to give a honest heads up to whatever crosses his fancy as Stuff That Entertains Him. You can visit the random ramblings at the link below.
