The Adventures of The Geek Rogue Writers…..


In my first post at Geek Goes Rogue, I quoted Simon Pegg and what defines a geek. We're passionate about the things we love. Things have been getting a bit heavy around these here parts, so I thought I would break it up a bit.Here are my top ten favorite writers of all time. Some of them are influences on my own work, some of them I just read for pure pleasure. Many of them have "geeky" connections.  Remember, if I were doing this on literary merit AND Geek outness, they'd probably be … [Read more...]

The Mystery of the Catholic Devil


Since I started getting back into comic books, people have asked me my favorite. That is a difficult question to answer, as I have a number of "favorites" for different reasons. For example, I'm a huge Green Lantern fan. As a fiction writer, there's nothing more appealing than a superhero who can create "objects" by the use of a ring and his pure willed imagination.  I may not fight evil by fiction writing, but I'd like to think so.However, there is a comic that I've discovered in the past … [Read more...]

The Adventure of G.K. Chesterton and The Penny Dreadfuls

Tomorrow, The Stars edited by Robert A. Heinlein.

The Adventures of G.K. Chesterton and the Penny DreadfulsSince Geek Goes Rogue started, I've been overwhelmed by the response. Geeks of all stripes are coming out of the woodwork and thanking me. I'm really floored by the thank-yous. The comment highlight came from the editor of a major online magazine telling me, "I really admire you and what you're doing. It's much needed."Sorry for the Wordpress brag. I don't include this comment to show how great I am, but how deep the need is for … [Read more...]

Don’t Step in the sh–, er, why earthy talk is needed in fiction…..

'Secret War'

Much to my chagrin, my Rob Bell mini review got sidetracked by the whole "profanity" discussion. While I disagree with the rebukes in regard to my language, I realize a good, learned defense on why "earthy" language in fiction is needed. Especially as my upcoming novel, 3 Gates of the Dead, includes characters who actually curse. I'm guessing it will raise more of a furor than my post on Rob Bell.  To that end, here is why I use earthy language in my novels.Be warned, I'm actually going to … [Read more...]

First Travel Post…….

Long Walk

Simon Pegg, fellow geek turned amazing actor once said,"Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. it means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It's basically a license to proudly emote on a some what childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating." Well said, Simon.Here at Geek Goes Rogue, we aren't afraid to express how much we love stuff. … [Read more...]

Rob Bell is Youth Group Guy

Rob Bell

I just got an advanced copy of Rob Bell's new book, What We Talk About When We Talk about God. Part of the gig is I'm supposed to write a reviewHere it goes.Note: this will not be a normal, linear review. Given that's pretty much Bell's writing style, I figured I'd go with that.I want to offer two disclaimers. This is the first Rob Bell book in my library.  I've watched a few of his sermons and his Nouma videos. Here is what I've always thought about Rob Bell. He reminds me of the ann … [Read more...]

The date is to be announced soon along with a teaser at the storyline AND the cover.This book has been a long, hard journey. It was published once, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away.
