The Journey of SILVER BROWN

Sherman: A So-Informal-That-Clothing-Is-Optional Introduction

I've been actively editing the manuscript over the last several weeks, gutting and reconstructing several chapters that I had written months earlier but still had a sliver of some ineffable quality that I couldn't quite put my finger on.

They are fronted by a guy who calls himself either Papa Emeritus or Cardinal Copia (depending on his mood), who wears… Continue reading The New Jazz [Part I]: Ghost

His son, Christopher Robin Milne, bitterly resented him for using him as the… Continue reading The Curse of Pooh
