Snapshots of Pescara

I attended Captivating Criminality 6 on the coast of the Adriatic. Pescara was once an Olympic venue. Pier Paolo Passolini passed there on his coastal roadtrip. It was very hot and surprisingly humid, so you can imagine how enervated I was (melting! melting!). Though I knew co-host Fiona Peters, I met folks I’ve known online…

Captivating Criminality 6

I am on the road again! Off to the east coast of Italy for Captivating Criminality 6. It should be a lot of fun. I’ve not been to that part of Italy and it looks like there’s a great range of presentations. I’ll be talking about the adaptations of Patricia Highsmith’s Ripley’s Game. Not sure…

Con-Eire FREE!

In honour of SFF con season, my short play Con-Eire from today through Thursday will be completely FREE! It’s appropriate for this season as it’s a love letter to the hard-working folks behind the scenes putting the madness all together: It’s three days before the start of Con-Eire, the best Irish-themed science fiction and fantasy…

The Occult & Popular Social Movements

Today I’ll be in Glasgow to attend a day-long workshop on a topic of interest for several things I’m working on at present including the serial. You can see the full program here. It’s been coordinated by Popular Occulture in Britain, 1875-1947. I expect I will write about it afterward, as usual. If you need…
