Wenclas Premium

A REMINDER THAT my hard-core ideas about literature are now being posted at my premium blog,
by registration only. There I'll be giving thoughts and tips for the individual writer, and perhaps about individual writers. This may include Writer Case Studies with names left out. I'll also be posting my unorthodox ideas about "How to Save Literature" and other topics. If you're in any way involved in creative writing or in promoting writers, this is can't-miss info you'll get nowhere else. Email me for an invite.

Do I know what I'm talking about? Judge for yourself.

The kind of fiction you won't find anywhere else.

Pop Lit!

WRITERS WANTED for an exciting new lit blog whose modest goal is to change literature-- or at least revive the American short story. I seek to bring adventure, imagination, drama, and fun back to the art form. Care to join along?
(Now up: an excerpt from Wred Fright's latest novel.)
Coming soon from myself: the Introduction on the blog of a bizarre but exciting new character.
