The really great News!
New agent alert! Going forward I’ll be represented by the great and noble Stuart Miller.
Stu has spent decades as a Hollywood-based talent agent and consultant, primarily in the literary and packaging fields, with considerable operational and management experience. Worldwide contacts and relationships include top executives, talent and creative artists at agencies, networks, studios, distributors, independent production companies, book publishers, technology and software companies.
Research and Development on The project with a different name every week will take me abroad from late November until March of next year, possibly longer. Stay tuned! I’ll be starting a new category here to share news and pictures.
IN OTHER NEWS! First up, filming for The Kinjiku is complete. Stay tuned to WillFightEvil4Food@wordpress for updates. This entire thing has been a shit ton of super fuckin’ boring hard work punctuated by 18 hour days of thunder. All these movies we love? The great shows on television (GOT, Happy, Patriot, Barry, the late and lamented Daredevil) well, behind the scenes? People are working like rabid mofos and charming androids who never tire. All the photos up on this site are stills and whatnot. A very special thanks to Mark Harris, mentor and cherished friend, my friend and talented actor Tony Dennison, friend and legend Ron Canada, the incredible Mark Bramhall, the beautiful Miki Hamino, stunning ladies Elizabeth Lambert, Colette O’Connell, Lynette Coll, the charming Skye Coyne, aces Isaac Gonzalez Rossi, Javier Lavato, Dan Harris, Tabbert Fiiler, the magnificent Heather Denton, Shaina Paulson, Kelly Fillinger, Sammi Begeiman, Paul Gonzales, Phillip Collins, Callum Barrass, Anthony Stivale, Irfan Merchant, Ian Nelms, Jin Ryu, Mikel Ross, Pietro Staccia, the all around excellent Tom Hildreth (seriously BIG thanks) and of course my sweetheart Sylvia Mann.
An investigative journalist is on the verge of breaking the story of his career, and all he needs is a single interview to give the article wings. The Kinjiku is the most exclusive bar in the world and ground zero for a burgeoning black market stock exchange. More than four trillion US dollars move through the underworld annually, and The Kinjiku is where colossal deals are made, where desperate futures are modeled, and where elite shadows and apex kingpins cross pollinate. The New York Stock Exchange began in the Tontine Coffee House on the corner of Wall Street and Water, and underwriters, traffickers, slave traders and politicians wrote an American rule book for supply and demand that would domino through time. The Kinjiku is much the same, though much can be made of a menu. The Tontine served black coffee and spirits to fire the trading. The Kinjiku is the speakeasy answer to molecular gastronomy and serves rare whiskies and liquors microdosed with select toxins engineered to produce a variety of unique highs. Every glass comes with a bullet you’re meant to swallow like a vitamin.
GROOVY! Just learned that Tattoo Machine, Tall Tales, True Stories, and My Life In Ink is in its 9th Printing!

the sweet sonifications of Fencepost Beckenshire
The most commonly asked questions about my novel Knottspeed, A Love Story are answered here. No spoilers, but this is what happened to Fencepost, the hard drinking piano player from the novel. What did he find when he went looking for the place postcards come from? This. Look in the Free Short Story Of The Month archive. I was going to sell it for a pitiful even grand, but fuck that. I’d rather give it away so I did.
