Since I was a teenager, I have been telling stories for the fun of it through film, video, audio drama, and more. Check out many of those projects here, or read on for comments on other stories or items that catch my interest.

Doctor Who: Mission to Magnus [Big Finish – Lost Stories]

March 29, 2015 2 comments

It’s my second outing with the Missing Adventures line of Big Finish’s Doctor Who adventures, and this time we’re going with Mission to Magnus.  For those not in the know, this line is based on bringing to life Doctor Who stories that for one reason or another were never produced.  And the run of stories that I’ve come into possession of all feature Colin Baker as the Doctor, with Nicola Bryant as Peri, as they come from the non-existent Season 23 which was being planned before the series was put on a forced hiatus, leading the production team to axe all their plans and replace them with The Trial of a Time Lord (for better or for worse).

Last time, when I wrote about The Nightmare Fair, I talked about how disappointed I was in the utter lack of story that the title contained, in spite of containing the welcome return of the Celestial Toymaker.  Mission to Magnus certainly rectifies this.

Marvel & DC – Smooshing It All Together

March 18, 2015 Leave a comment

Recently, I found myself pondering a question – a question that I’m sure you have all pondered as well:  if all Marvel and DC comic books were cancelled, and I was in charge of restarting the line as one shared continuity, limiting myself to 25 books or so, what would I choose?

That of course led me to think of what a shared continuity between Marvel and DC would actually look like.  How does one integrate the best or most interesting elements of both company’s properties into one streamlined story.  Can you indeed put both the Justice League and the Avengers into one continuity, and give them both a reason to be there?  What about Batman and Moon Knight?  Hawkeye and Green Arrow?  It’s an exercise sort of like what happened back in Crisis on Infinite Earths, but on an even bigger scale.

I Used That in a Story One Day!

February 27, 2015 Leave a comment

A while ago, I had a minor but amusing incident on a road near my house.  I detailed this event in a previous post, part of my series entitled I’m Gonna Use That in a Story Someday… (seems like I haven’t written one of those in a while).

But just in the interest of being a completist, I wanted to mention here that I eventually did in fact use that idea in a story!

The story is called The Incident at Edmuss Rise, and it’s an interactive murder mystery party game.  Read more…
