Hoarded (short fiction)

Wren & Hess


The ancient dragon Vulzarnius-too-many-syllables-for-most-people-to-bother-pronouncing had been there before the city had been founded. As the decades passed and the city grew, it was assumed that one day the dragon would either move away or have to be convinced to. In the end, neither was required. The city engulfed Vulz’s lair, and she seemed not to mind. Her cave, sitting in the middle of a quiet neighborhood, no longer seemed out of place, and her neighbors never had reason to complain.

The Muppets

I find people’s reaction to the new Muppet show to be more interesting than the show itself. (Though I did like the show.)

There’s something fascinating about seeing the multiple and varying interpretations these characters can create. Perhaps because the Muppets have been around so long and have such a special place in many people’s perceptions, it’s only natural that everyone has their own unique idea of what the Muppets are.

Strangely, I find all those interpretations to be universally wrong. Just as when someone tries to tell me about the “Best” version of Batman. There honestly isn’t a best version. There’s a version you prefer over other versions.

20 Minutes into the Future

I don’t think people like shows set in the Near Future. I don’t know why, but they almost never make it.

If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say it has something to do with the setting being both too unfamiliar and too familiar at the same time. Even if the setting is basically “20 Minutes into the Future”, it still tends to confuse your average person.

I think too it’s because your average person will start dissecting the setting for plausibility. Every little piece of technology introduced into the setting will be dissected for its believability, and inevitably, something will come across as too unrealistic for your average person.

Two Appearances

A quick update on two local appearances in the DFW area.

I’ll be at the Euless Public Library this Thursday evening, along with several other fabulous writers.

And this weekend I will also be at Fencon, a local con. It was my first con ever, and one I heartily recommend.
