“The game’s afoot!”

I was just getting ready to call it a day last night around 11:30pm...and when my head hit the pillow, the thinking portion of my brain called out: “Hey...weren’t you supposed to put together another giveaway for the blog?”  So I apologize for not having this post up earlier.  I did hint last week about another contest,… Continue reading “The game’s afoot!”

I received a plethora (I learned this word from Cliff Weimer—it means “a lot”) of entries in the latest Thrilling Days of Yesteryear giveaway...oddly enough, I think we had more people participate in the previous “Full Details” contest.  But that’s just nitpicking on my part, and though I would dearly love to be able to… Continue reading “Winning doesn’t always mean being first.

Call me anything you want…just don’t call me late for winner!

Profuse apologies to everyone out there in TDOY Land for getting this announcement up so late...but I’ve been hard at work finishing some liner notes for an upcoming Radio Spirits release featuring tales well-calculated to keep you in...Suspense!

“Giveaways are my stock-in-trade…”

Apologies for the quiet on the blog recently but it’s just been one of those months: off-blog chores to do for Ma and Pa, and for a moment there, I thought I might not be able to pay the income tax this year.
