Anthony is a brilliant comedian and improviserfearsomely disciplined yet fearless in accessing the most twisted recesses of his id. Before I met him, I got to know his work through a series of bizarre short films he made, like this one:

My novelette "After the Earthquake a Fire" is now available as a 99¢ ebook.
This story tells a fictionalized version of some of my experiences as a Mormon missionary in Idaho after I was ejected from Canada. If you finished reading The Accidental Terrorist and wondered what what the rest of my mission was like ... well, I hope you won't read too much into this.
Be aware that this story includes scenes of animal cruelty which may be disturbing to some readers.
The Queens Lit Fest 2017 runs for two full days this weekend at LIC Landing in Long Island City. Admission for both days is free but does require an RSVP.
I will be reading promptly at 7:00 pm on Sunday evening, but don't come just to hear me. Come for an afternoon, evening, or all day to hear a wide array of Queens poets, essayists, storytellers, and more, including friends of mine like Emily Alta Hockaday, Jackie Sherbow, and Audrey Dimola.

Malcolm Chang reports: "I currently reside in Jackson Heights, but I have also lived in Johannesburg, Toronto, Chicago, and Los Angeles, amongst others. I was born during the apartheid era and as a third generation Chinese-South African, have been regarded at various times in my life as more Black than White, as well as more White than Black, on that odd spectrum of racial classification that existed in South Africa. I have written essays for Elle Magazine (South Africa), and a chapter of my memoirs appeared in Newtown Literary. You can also check out my blogs at Senile Delinquent and Mal and Di's Excellent Adventure. I am currently working on my memoirs and my first novel."
latest proper manuscript format post
I want to submit a novel manuscript to a small press in the US and their guidelines say "indented, not tabbed."
What's the difference? Usually I just hit the tab key once. Should I be doing something else?
I have Word Starter 2010, and I can't see any distinction between "indent" and "tab."
How do I make sure I'm indenting and not tabbing? If I'm tabbing, how do I change it to indent?
This is an excellent question, and I'm sure the cause of much confusion among word-processing novices. There is in fact a distinction between tabbing and indentingor rather, it might be more accurate to say that tabbing is only one way to indent a paragraph. I will try to explain a method for indenting paragraphs that makes your document more portable* and easier for your publisher to use.

The trade paperback edition of Deus ex Machina was released late last year, but for the ebook release Sinister Regard has given it a spiffily updated cover. And the ebook is available pretty much everywhere! Smashwords, Kobo, Nook, iBooks and Kindle all have it for a measly $1.99, and it's also available for your reading pleasure on such subscription services as Oyster and Scribd. How do you like me now?
But wait! That's not all! Sinister Regard will be bringing out three more of my books in print and electronic editions over the course of the summer, including two that have never before seen the light of day! First, on June 16th, is Whether We Are Mended, my collection of three long sci-fi love stories, which is also getting a cover that's a vast improvement over its original hardback edition.
