New Post at Home of Heroics

I’m in the middle of trying to put together presentations for back-to-back conferences next week, so I’m a little late in mentioning this.  (Plus Blogger and Firefox don’t seem to be on good terms lately, forcing me to use a idfferent browser; what’s up with that?)  The latest installment of my column Dispatches From the Lone Star Front is up at Home of Heroics.  It deals with Robert E. Howard’s legacy, so if you’re a Howard fan (if not, why not?), check it out.

A Bit of Shamelss Self-Promotion

If you’ve read this blog in the last few weeks, you’ve seen me mention Home of Heroics over on the Rogue Blades Entertainment website.  I’ve got a column, Dispatches From the Lone Star Front, there, and the first one went up a little while ago.  Check it out.  The column will be a little different from the type of things I write about here.  I’ll be focusing on factual heroes more than fictional, with the emphasis being on those from Texas, since that’s where I live.  Hence the title.

Announcing Rogue Blades Entertainment’s Home of Heroics

Hey, everybody, just a quick word to let you know that Rogue Blades Entertainment is about to launch a new feature at their website.  Tomorrow morning, April 4, at 8:00 a.m., Home of Heroics makes its debut.  This will be a page focusing on heroics in any and all forms, fictional and historical, reviews and analysis, and general discussion.  There are 26 regular contributors, posting Monday and Friday, with guest contributors posting on Wednesdays.  My column, Dispatches From the Lone Star Front, will premiere on Monday, April 25, for those of you who are interested.  Jason Waltz has assembled an impressive lineup of writers and an aggressive schedule of new content, and I’m excited and humbled to be a part of it.  Also, he’s got some upgrades and changes to the RBE website that will be going live over the next week or so.  Check it all out.  You’ll be glad you did.  As much variety as Jason has planned, you’re sure to find a number of things that will appeal to you.
