Groundhog Dave

I wrote this for Hero Collector. I've always been fascinated by time loop episodes on TV. My wife hates time loop episodes on TV.

Sadly, as a result of writing this, I've had to subject her to several of them.

Outside In Takes A Stab Episode Revealed

My contribution to Outside In Takes A Stab is called First Among Equals and concerns the opening episode of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer's seventh and final season, Lessons.

The episode sees a death in Istanbul, Xander helping to reconstruct Sunnydale High School and Buffy embarrassing Dawn during her first day there, Willow recuperating with Giles in England. Back at school the Summers girls encounter vengeful spirits and a mad Vampire with a soul in the basement. Once again, that's not really what I've written about at all.

The final scene reintroduces the First, the Big Bad for the season. First Among Equals focusses on that last scene and boasts an exclusive behind the scenes look at the production of the episode. I guarantee you've never heard this anywhere else.

Outside In Takes A Stab is available here.

Outside In Takes A Stab Uncovered

This is very nearly almost the cover for Outside In Takes A Stab.

The tagline is stated as 138 new perspectives on 138 Buffy stories by 138 writers, but since this cover was unveiled, an extra perspective has joined the others on an extra Buffy story by an extra writer. My contribution has gone from being 1/138th of the whole endeavour to mere 1/139th. I'll live with it. I'll post some more details about the episode that I wrote about soon.

Blue Monday

Today is Blue Monday. Supposedly the most depressing day of the year.

How do we change that? How do we lift today out of the doldrums? How do we give it a boost?

Do something nice for someone. Pay it forward. Work with me here. Let's make this happen.

On a related note, here's some New Order...
