The Man Who Came Down The Stair was created by acclaimed artist Celine Loup, as a way to deal with her own ticking biological clock and her incredible anxiety at the prospect of motherhood. I am obviously not a mother, but I can sympathize with her anxiety. There was a time when I very much wanted a child of my own, but my mental (and subsequently physical) health eventually made that prospect terrifying. It took several years to fully accept my decision not to father a child, and the emotional turmoil that lead to that decision.
At the same time I’ve watched more than one of my friends suffer from post-partum depression...Read More
I got to do a cool thing this week, I was a guest on The Legend of the Traveling Tardis Radio Show. The format for the show was a stump-the-panelist style game. I was a bit worried about how I would do against undeniably more knowledgeable panelists. Heck, a regular panelist on the show is award-winning author Mackenzie Flohr. She is putting out a book series called The Binge Watcher’s Guide to Doctor Who. How do I stump someone like that!? You can listen to how badly I did this Saturday on numerous platforms, and watch the video version next Monday on TLOTT’s YouTube channel.
Thankfully, she wasn’t on the panel this week. I assume that was at least in part because she’s part of the Kickstarter campaign for the first book in the Binge Watcher’s Guide to Doctor Who, Season 11.

By the Time I Get to Dallas is a limited series, 200-page graphic novel in five books about a young man struggling to become a doctor in the midst of an apocalyptic public health crisis. What if most of the human population tried to migrate to a single point on the globe? What would happen to them, to the people they left behind, and to the human species? What makes us human? Is it possible to lose our humanity?
Overall I thought this first book was very thought provoking. It’s not your traditional post-apocalyptic story, in the sense that it slows the pace right down...Read More
