Woodpile 2020

posted on September 24, 2020

There won’t be a Flash Fridays post on the morrow because these bad boys have to be moved into the shed and out of Mom Nature’s way before the weather turns ugly this weekend.

I’m counting on some cozy winter evenings by the hearth as I continue my journey through Asimov’s Empire novels. Meet my pals Chip, Woody, Dusty, Bud, Ringo, Barkley… well, you get the idea.

Asimov 2

posted on August 26, 2020

I actually completed my second book in my journey through Asomov’s galactic empire novels a bit ago and it was fun revisiting those stories. I had seen this book in Jean Luc’s home on Picard, and hadn’t realized that all of the robot stories had been culled into one giant book (Let’s cal it “almost all” since Robot Dreams isn’t included), which is max handy. Watching Asimov age Susan Calvin through the stories was fascinating, and it made me wonder if I had pocketed that idea reading these stories as a youngster as something I’d like to do if given the opportunity. I did that a quite a bit in those days. At any rate, my blast through my and Asimov’s past is continuing in the The Caves of Steel which I’ve almost completed. Next up – The Naked Sun.

The Fire Story Arc

posted on August 15, 2020

A reader emailed me to say that I’d retconned the flashback to the fire in Montoni’s that appeared in the current story arc. I was able to point out that the two flashback panels were taken directly from the original story that ran in 1997, and that there was no retconning involved at all (Not that I would be averse to doing something like that, mind you, I just didn’t do it here). It made think that there might be other curious readers out there who would like to read that original story arc and see how it not only brings context to the current work that’s running now, but how it fits into the larger story that was part of the ‘Who killed John Darling?’ murder tale. If so, you can find the entire story arc and much much more in Volume 9 of The Complete Funky Winkerbean which we published just for moments like this.
