May 2010 News

Yow! Where did May go? I prepped some stuff early on, but suddenly the month is almost over! Still, I don't want to let y'all down by skipping a month. So, here's a brief edition with more to come in June, when (hopefully) I'll be more organized.

The good news is that I've been busy writing, and you'll be seeing plenty of new stuff up on Amazon and in other venues soon. For now, though, here's some cool stuff you may not know about.

Current Projects - A Roswell Play

Though I recently completed a steampunk story (more about that in the future), and I've been working on various Blue Kingdoms tales, my major project in the early part of 2010 has been adapting my story "Last Call at Corona" into a stage play. The inspiration for doing so was working with my friend Tim Mosbach, one of the founders of Theater Undreground. Attending TUG's productions over the last year really got my creative juices flowing.

What would it be like to see my work on stage? I wondered.

"Last Call...," a Roswell story featuring aliens and UFOs, might be an odd choice for the stage, but -- as the cliche goes -- it seemed like a good idea at the time. One reason is that the story has two strong, interesting characters (Tom & Beth) and some fun dialog. My initial idea was to do a lot of multimedia effects for the UFO/aliens parts. While that could still happen in a big production, I've scaled the story back so that it can be fun with a small setting (and budget, too). I've done one reading with TUG and two with the Alliterates, and I feel I'm pretty close to done with the script. I'm hoping to do another reading with TUG in the near future. I'm also hoping that we might actually produce the thing later this year. Stay tuned to future newsletters to find out.

Until then, if you want to read the original story, you can find it through the link below.

Uncanny Encounters: Roswell

Uncanny Encounters: Roswell melds "facts" - in this case, the story of the crash near Roswell, NM, with fictional takes on the same event. Roswell features the work of Nick Redfern (fact), and fiction by Robert E. Vardeman, Jean Rabe, and me.

You can buy the book from Amazon by clicking above.
