Here's what's been on the Word Press blog over the last month or so.....

I posted two final reading lists: stuff in worlds of my own creation and collaborations, shared worlds, and other miscellaneous stuff.

I've also been posting embedded vidoes of my KRAD COVID readings on the Tube of You, in which I've read "Letter from Guadalajara" (from 2011's More Tales of Zorro), "Diary of a False Man" (from 2000's X-Men Legends), "Back in El Paso My Life Will Be Worthless" (from 2015's The X-Files: Trust No One), "When the Magick Goes Away" (from a 2012 crowdfund, reprinted in Tales from Dragon Precinct), "loDnI'pu' vavpu' je" (from 2005's Star Trek: Tales from the Captain's Table), "Arms and the Man" (from 1997's Untold Tales of Spider-Man), "Materfamilias" (from 2020's Bad Ass Moms), the first chapter of 2001's Here There Be Monsters (part of the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series), "Many a Mile to Freedom" (from 2001's Farscape: The Official Magazine #1), "Catch and Release" (from 2013's Tales from Dragon Precinct), and "Ragnarok and Roll" (from 2011's Tales from the House Band Volume 1).
