Non-Fiction By Me

While I’m primarily a specfic writer at the moment, I’ve done other stuff, most notably writing about movies and TV. My new book, Now and Then We Time Travel is out from McFarland and also available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

I also just self-published Sex for Dinner, Death for Breakfast. This book chronicles the James Bond films from the TV production of Casino Royale in 1954 through Spectre.

Cyborgs, Santa Claus and Satan is a look at made-for-TV spec-fic films. It runs from the birth of made-for-TV movies at the end of the 1960s through 1998.

The Wizard of Oz Catalog is an encyclopedic Oz reference. It includes the original “Famous Forty” canonical novels, plus movies, non-canonical books, TV shows, stage plays, radio dramas, cartoons and videogames, both U.S. and overseas. It runs into the early 21st century.

Screen Enemies of the American Way is a look at political paranoia in American movies. The country has had a fear of subversion since it was founded so I look at movies dealing with Japanese agents, Nazi spies, Communist subversives, body-snatchers and Muslim terrorists for the common patterns.

There’s also my “Quicklet” on Empire of the Summer Moon, analyzing the book—its strengths, its flaws, related topic.

I worked for ten years at the Destin Log newspaper but almost nothing of mine is easy to find online. However you can find my more recent newspaper work at the Raleigh Public Record.

And here’s my Demand Media profile with links to some of my most recent articles.

I write on politics every couple of weeks at And magazine.

I’ve written for many  magazines over the years, including Dragon Magazine. For example on clerical codes of conduct, or Spider-Man to Wed Vanna White!, an article on life in a super-heroic universe.
