Two New Music Videos, Basket Girl, and From Me To You

February 19, 2019

Dear Readers,

Please see my youtube channel page for two new videos.
Basket Girl, is an original with Red Riding Hood overtones.
From Me To You, is the Beatle classic.

For both, I recorded the guitar separately, then sang live, to get a better mix. You will not be surprised to find there is no auto tuned vocals!

Review: Carter Ward, Space Rat

January 7, 2019

Carter Ward, Space Rat,
by Gregory K. HG. Bryant
Review 1/6/19

For many years Gregory K. H. Bryant contributed essays to my zine Musea. Later I found out what an accomplished artist and photographer he was. Now add author to that list with the release of his big trade paperback, “Carter Ward, Space Rat”

The 500 pages here introduce us to the adventures of Carter Ward; but it’s far from his last adventure as his story continues online.

Carter Ward is a crusty loner that survives in the outback of space between Mars and the Asteroid Belt, where the laws there are seldom followed!

His ship, 08-111 is a one of a kind marvel with all the necessary, rigged up, extras like his visual companion and a favorite character of mine, Dimara, who helps him out of scrapes more than once!

Besides Dimara, others intrude on his life more than he wants! There’s lots of characters here from the evil Mokem Bet and his Scroungers, to little Emily that has a crush on Carter.

All this adds up to lots of close calls – like the time he died – and even some tender moments when he lets down his guard – slightly!

Lots of space opera adventures here, that are not only fine writing, but fun reading!
I recommend this.
