He Lived Long and Prospered: Leonard Nimoy, RIP

Austin Dragon Writer Musings Leave a Comment

March 26, 1931 to February 27, 2015 (dies at age 83) Yesterday we lost “Mr. Spock.” Leonard Nimoy was, of course, much more than that in an acting career that spanned an amazing sixty-four years. He was also a husband, father, grandfather, director, author, poet, singer, songwriter, and photographer. But he will always be best remembered as that pointed-eared, green-blooded Vulcan …

Worlds of Science Fiction: After Eden Series Tek-Fall

Austin Dragon After Eden Series Tek-Fall, Series Overview Leave a Comment

Series Overview I may never have written a word of fiction in more than 15 years, but there was never a time that the ideas were not flowing. Why this seven-book series, with at least two companion novels, would ‘force’ me to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard), I don’t know? It’s a beast. Over seventy years in …

Worlds of Horror: Sleepy Hollow Horrors

Austin Dragon Character Profile, Sleepy Hollow Horrors 5 Comments

Character Profile As I once stated in an earlier blog post, I like horror, but most horror today is…crap. Silly, stupid, and gratuitously gruesome are the three normal categories they fall into.

Hell’s Menagerie (After Eden Series: Tek-Fall, Episode II) My companion mini-series concludes. In Metal Flesh (Episode I), the focus was on “living” inorganic robots. Now with the concluding Hell’s Menagerie (Episode II), we move to “man-made” organic creatures. I marvel at the groundbreaking story of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (full title: Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus) which was written in 1818 anonymously …

I like the word “phase” in my own life, both personally and professionally, when I’m planning big changes and major goals. Marvel Studios also seems to like that word and is giving us a list of every single, solitary marvel super hero movie to 2020. As an avid comic book collector when I was a kid, and a huge fan …

Austin Dragon Inspirational, Life Tips, Writer Musings Leave a Comment

At the beginning of every January is the perennial debate as to whether New Year’s resolutions are good or bad, stupendous or stupid, beneficial or a complete, self-defeating waste of time.  The simple question back should be: What’s wrong with wanting to improve yourself or your quality of life? That’s what we homo sapiens on Earth do. Shouldn’t we all be …
