Father's Day

Unlike me, my father was not a very expressive person and much of what he did say was sarcastic. At the same time, he had a quiet strength I try to emulate.

He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 1995, and an operation gave him almost six years before the cancer recurred. That time helped me understand our differences and meet him halfway. For that I am ever grateful.

Netflix Saves Lucifer

Earlier this week I saw Amazon was in talks to save Lucifer, which was canceled by FOX after three seasons. Today I see Netflix is picking up the show for a fourth season.

It's great to have been a small part of the campaign that saved the show. Apparently it came down to the wire. The original contracts holding the actors to the show would have expired today.

New Poem in Retreats from Oblivion

Last month I received an email announcing NoirCon's new online journal, Retreats from Oblivion. I submitted a poem from the perspective of a World War II aviator, "Why?", which is live today. I hope it transports you as it did me.
