It was one year ago today...

...that my nephew Blake killed himself. He was only 18 years old.

Throughout his growing up he and I would fall into each other's orbits and back out again. Those times we spent together were always brief- that's just the dynamics of my family- but I knew him and I loved him.

He was a gentle soul- I know that term is a cliche but that's the truth of it. If you met him I am sure you would have thought the same thing.

If you ask me this sad old world is just a little sadder without him in it.

FLASHBAK has a Colorforms blast from the past!

As Star Trek (1966-1969) nears its 50th anniversary, it’s time to feature another franchise memory of the disco decade: The Colorforms Star Trek Adventure Set. This Colorforms toy from the year of 1975 permitted children to create their own series adventure about the U.S.S. Enterprise, or at least a 2-D replica. With this set, kids could “travel into unexplored territory in outer space on assignments to explore and probe the mysterious regions beyond our galaxy limits.”

THE DEVIL'S INTERVAL is at it again!

From TheDevilsInterval

(Recommended Reads) The works of S.A. Hunt

From the author's website

​It's been five years since Robin Martine's father threw her mother Annie off the second-floor balcony and broke her neck. Five long years since Robin was locked away in a mental hospital for telling the authorities that the murder was caused by a witch. A witch named Marilyn Cutty. Three years ago, a man named Heinrich Hammer came for her. I'll get you out of here...but you'll have to kill. Now a veteran witch-hunter and YouTube star, Robin has come back to town to settle up with the coven that stole her life from her. But she'll have to fight through Heaven, Hell and everything in between if she wants to free her mother's spirit from Cutty's soul-sucking apple tree and end the witches' reign over the town of Blackfield once and for all...

After coming home from a stint in Afghanistan, veteran Ross Brigham learns that his father has passed away. Dearly departed Dad was a famous fantasy novelist, and the 300 fans that show up for the funeral demand that Ross finish E. R. Brigham's long-running magnum opus. Ross and two of the author's devotees investigate his untimely death and discover that he might have been murdered...and the time-bending gunslingers of Dad's steampunk novels might be real. As they try to acclimate to the arid deserts of the author's fantasy world, the three damaged heroes become pawns in a war for humanity's survival. The Muses have grown tired of immortality and now incite atrocities on Earth, trying to lure down a leviathan from the stars. Can Ross and his new friends stop the scheming satyrs before both worlds are eaten?
