Tales from the Beermat


Hey, I’m one of the judges in the Storm Crow Tavern’s Tales from the Beermat contest. Write a microfiction story (250 words or less), and it could wind up on a coaster in the Storm Crow Tavern, to be soaked in beer and sacrificial blood by thousands of victims, err… patrons! Plus, there are prizes of cash and gift cards to the Storm Crow!

If I wasn’t a judge, I would totally enter this myself.

The other judges include Kristi Charish and Silvia Moreno-Garcia.

The only catch is you have to be a Canadian citizen, although they may waive that if you write your story in blood. I don’t think it matters whose blood it is, but you may want to check the rules.

Ich bin ein Storm Crower


Thanks to everyone for coming out to my reading at the Storm Crow the other night — especially the German film crew that randomly showed up. That’s Vancouver for you.

That was my last reading for a while but I’ll still be making a few appearances at conferences and such. Please check my Appearances page for updates.
