Way back when I first wrote Stuff Every Husband Should Know and contributed to Geek Wisdom, I pitched the idea of doing a beer book to my editor at Quirk Books. I can kinda write, and I like beer, so why not bring the two together for a beer book? I was given a dose of reality.

Happy birthday to the mostest awesomest editor

Stephen Segal is awesome. I can vouch for this. He’s not awesome for being an award-winning editor, nor even for being the guy who guided me during the writing of Stuff Every Husband Should Know, Geek Wisdom, and Whispers of the Old Hag, my piece for the legendary Weird Tales Magazine. He’s awesome because he’s awesome. He’s not just a colleague in the publishing industry, nor my supervisor for several projects, nor even a good fellow. He’s a great guy, a tremendous talent, and a friend. Today is his birthday. Happy birthday, buddy. Hope to see you soon.

In more exciting news, I’m just days away from wrapping up final edits on the first draft of a science fiction novel. It’s an action-packed story set in a dystopian America of the near future. I still have a long way to go on it but hope to be feverishly writing the next draft by Memorial Day.
