Howdy Ho and welcome back. I hope you had a pleasant holiday season. Here in the McSciFi compound we had a wonderful time. Sadly, due to COVID related issues, we were unable to meet with family members. That means Christmas will be delayed for a bit. Which is okay, we’ll just leave the tree up with the gifts underneath until we can deliver them.

One thing that did get done was starting the year off right. Media legend, JoAnn Genette, interviewed me for her show, The Mightiest Nightiest Show. Unlike other interviews there were game show elements involved. From “who wore it better” to “name those boobs,” we covered a lot of ground in the half-hour I was there. Another first, I made it through the entire interview without dropping an F-bomb. We’ll see how long that lasts.

Now to the important stuff.

Last year, SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY was voted the Best Sci-Fi Novel of 2020 by the Critters’ Readers’ Poll. While Goptri of the Mists: Kitaab Ek, the fourth novel in the Brittle Riders Trilogy, didn’t get nominated this year, I’m still represented and would love for you to take a minute out of your day to vote for me.

ICC Magazine, which claims me as their assistant editor, is up for the Critters’ award for best non-fiction magazine. If you CLICK HERE you can cast a vote for all that’s good and holy in the world. Or, less dramatically, for ICC Magazine.

Sci-Fi Lampoon, which has printed several of my short stories and will be including my magnum opus, THE WRITER’S STUFF in their upcoming anthology, THE FUCKENING, is up for Best Fiction Magazine. If you CLICK HERE you can vote for them too, and you should.

Time, once again, for a reminder. Whenever the rights to my stories revert back to me I post them online for all to read for free. All you have to do is CLICK HERE to wallow in the awesomeness of it all. And, I’ll be honest, even if you never pay for anything I’ve had published I’m still happy if you enjoy these offerings. You’re not stealing from me. I’ve been paid, and I’d rather you enjoy them than just have them rot on my hard drive.

Finally, as you can see by the images below, people love wearing McSciFi gear or rolling around, scantily clad, in form fitting latex while reading autographed copies of my comics. Not to limit you in any way, I should also note you can roll around, scantily clad, in form fitting latex and read my novels too.

Really, if it makes you happy, it makes me happy.

Until next week, you do you. Stay safe, sane, and inside, and try not to catch COVID .. or the flu … or chlamydia … or … never mind, you get the idea.

Just stay safe. I’m getting kind of fond of you.
