Portrait by Maxim Peter Griffin
Yeah, remember him? The guy with the omnipresent cigarette who once upon a time wrote and infrequently published movie reviews, poems, stories, and the half fractured book? Well, lock up your cats and daughters—Simon Drax has limped back to life.
These are the projects in which I’m currently engaged…
Yeah, I know. But this story is still important to me, and I want to put it to rest. I rewrote the first chapter back in March, and I’m pretty pleased with it. I want to tell the story I didn’t tell, tell the story I’d promised to tell. You can read the revised first chapter here.

UNTITLED BONDAGE SF FANTASY (NSFW)
Aaaah… yes. That’s right. Basically it’s a rip-off of THE TERMINATOR, except with hot women tied-up in every chapter. THE BLACK HOLE IN THE CENTER OF OUR GALAXY! ALIEN TROOPS FROM ANDROMEDA—AND FROM THE FUTURE! THE TRIPLE GODDESS! You can read a sample here.

TWIN FUCKING PEAKS
I’m writing short essays about my “TWIN PEAKS” experience for as a yet untitled anthology about the “TWIN PEAKS” effect on modern culture, later TV, film. There’s a lot to chew on. I submitted my first piece: it was about the night I taped the first episode. (Obviously, I can’t share this, as it’s for a forthcoming book.) Now, crazily, I want to to jump into a massive essay about “FIRE WALK WITH ME.” Good art is never linear.

THE LAST STAR IN THE SKY
I’m going to publish this as a Kindle Single on amazon for 99 cents a pop. Why not?
So if you want a copy before I take down the page, DO IT NOW.
And that is all. If even ONE of these projects reach conclusion before December 31, 2014, I will be a happy man.
