In addition, he’s penned numerous blogs and articles for Tor.com, Alternative Press, Weird Tales, Fantasy Magazine, Clarkesworld, most papers in the Village Voice chain, and sundry others.
Proving there’s no end to his geekiness, he also writes science fiction, fantasy, and horror, the likes of which have been featured in over a dozen publications including Sybil's Garage, Apex Magazine, Polluto, Farrago's Wainscot, Brain Harvest, and the Descended from Darkness anthology. His next undertaking is the steampunk pirate novel, Ocean of Bone. When his head's not wedged in a laptop, he plays guitar in the punk bands The Fire Drills and 25 Rifles.
