Sparrow & Crowe – The Kickstarter Project

On the upcoming Deceptionists episode, I talk about Sparrow & Crowe: The Demoniac of Los Angeles, which is an original comic book miniseries by me, Jeremy Rogers, and artist Jared Souza. It’s currently in production with Hermes Press, and it’s set to debut in Spring 2012.

The book is an occult mystery centered around the possessed daughter of a Los Angeles mob boss. The story mixes crime noir with pulpy horror, as occult detective Doctor Xander Crowe and his assistant Sparrow find themselves caught between Hell and the mob, facing Crowe’s greatest failure… and worst enemy.

This is a creator-owned venture, and the comics market is a tricky one. So, to that end, we’ve launched a Kickstarter project to help us raise money for costs associated with the production and marketing of our comic book.

If you’re curious about our characters, they are two of the main protagonists from my audio drama, Wormwood: A Serialized Mystery, which ran from 2007-2010 — and is still available on iTunes. Visit for more information.

Three Minute Fiction Contest

In the interest of sharing links that might appeal to our followers:

The next round of NPR’s Three Minute Fiction Contest has been announced with a deadline of Sunday, January 23, 2011.  The goal is to write short stories of 600 words or less (i.e., that can be read out loud in about three minutes). Some of us have participated in these and found them worthwhile.  We may discuss this, or similar challenges on future podcasts.

Things are coming.

Things of a recorded nature.

I’ve already said too much.
