Here’s something you can file under “what was lost” and has not yet been found: The two great 80’s Soviet invasion TV miniseries. On the big screen, in the 80’s, we had Patrick Swayze fighting Cuban paratroopers, the ultimate in jingoism in Reagan’s new America. But it’s what was playing out on the small screen […]
The greatest mystery isn’t why my dad left. It’s what happened to him between 1985, when he vanished into the night, and 2000, when he sued me for control of my mother’s estate.

I think there was the vague idea that it would be a porn site, but that somehow drifted into becoming a “literary” community.

Just having finished The Pesthouse, a love story disguised as a post-apocalyptic novel, and having my interested piqued by Nacho’s new project, I decided to join in the fun and present a list of the best cataclysmic or apocalyptic songs. Also, there is a giant high pressure system just squatting over the entire Gulf region […]
Apocalypse Literature: A definitive, updated guide. More of a challenge than I thought when I was toying with the idea a few days ago.
