Onion AV Club - Guide to Greasy Spoons

There's something about fall that makes me want to stay up all night at a diner and write things in a notebook. This list of 24-hour restaurants tastes like coffee and greasy cheeseburgers at 3 AM.

Onion AV Club - Interview with the LARPer

Though I've dabbled in LARPs, tabletop gaming is my first love. Vampire: The Masquerade is one of my most influential RPGS. This article talks to the ST of Nocturnal Rapture, who even borrowed plots from Milwaukee By Night just like I did.

Kickstarter - Shelter In Place and Gimme Shelter

Kickstarter is a wonderful way for small games companies to get their product out in front of interested parties. This is the most recent game I fell in love with. It's a set of zombie live action rules that let you live out the fun of a zombie apocalypse without the actual ending of the world. Plus twist characters can be hiding out amongst the regular old humans to change it up a bit.

But that's not all.

I wrote some flash fiction for the game and it will be appearing in the accompanying anthology, Gimme Shelter.The piece is titled Samuel Colt Made Them Equal. A PDF of the anthology is included to all Kickstarter backers. Back the game for $10 and you get a copy of the rules and the anthology.
