Photo: Politics and the Apocalypse

Sometimes I like to mess with the curves function on my photo editor. There’s not much skill involved – you just toggle the color values around here and there until you get something that looks cool. It took about five minutes to transform an ordinary picture into an apocalyptic landscape. That’s about the same amount of time it would take the chain of command to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile. It’s a sobering thought, even after a few deep pours of single malt.

On the brighter side, here’s a link to Gavin Chappell’s Schlock! Webzine.

He’ll be publishing my novel, The Lake Erie Lights, in serial format over the coming months. I thought it only fair to give him a quick plug. He’s based in the United Kingdom, and he brings in writers who contribute compelling stories concerning science fiction, fantasy, and horror.  If you’re a fan of any of those genres, check it out. It’s free.
