Luke Cage’s Symbol of Justice

Captain America has his shield. Thor's got his hammer. Iron Man's got his full-body armor. Not just weapons that they wield, but iconic symbols of their mythic power.

I have my doubts that either of those recipes is accurate, let alone complete, but there are elements of these ingredients in all of us. Books come from [...]

Deep Talk, Or Why I Love Cons

My last con for the summer was Con-Gregate, a small sci-fi/fantasy convention in High Point, North Carolina, where I was a guest author (You can read about what I was doing there here and about the con itself here).
