What a strange thing to celebrate is Columbus Day: the enslavement and death of millions of indigenous people. Hey, at least we get the day off…
Hawaii, Oregon, Alaska, and South Dakota apparently do not recognize this holiday. They got it right. So did Berkeley, CA.
This is a genuine opportunity for the church to quit mythologizing about the Christian origin of this country, especially as a pretext for evangelical political involvement. The church is supposed to be about truth and love for all peoples, eh? Any takers?
To celebrate the release of Nightriders, here’s a free collection of three short stories by Marc Schooley. Please help yourself… A forgotten Vietnam vet’s strange adventure in Houston. A young woman’s near-death experience on a sunbaked roadside. A bubble-wrapped future overrun by a creeping plague. Visit a supernatural continuum whose hub is the Lone Star State as you’ve never seen it. Texas Dark features a bonus chapter from Marc’s paranormal thriller novel Nightriders. Nightriders is ready to download on Kindle or Nook for only $5.99. Paperback available here.
MLP author Kerry Nietz has a new release out: Mask.
I’m breaking radio/blog silence here, because I’m fired up about this one. Ordered it as soon as it hit the shelves and devoured it in one sitting. Great book. The mask symbolism hit me on a personal level–one I’ll carry with me for the foreseeable future–but the read itself is fast-paced and full of cool stuff. Highly recommended.
I hope Mr. Nietz continues to write; I’ll keep reading. Sooner or later, Kerry should probably have some kind of Sandfly mechanism to download it directly into the brain. Good stuff, man…
