Sugar Cube Golem

My buddy Mur Lafferty has a book series out—the first one is “The Shambling Guide To New York City” The sequel is going to be called “Ghost Train To New Orleans” and is the reason we spent a couple of the days in the French Quarter last year. (Many of our adventures will appear therein! […]


I have written too many words today and now I’m out.   They needed to be written. The book won’t write itself. This is how I earn whatever fraction of a cent they pay me for every letter.   The problem is that now I’m out of words and have started to forget the names […]
