Smaller Bits

Sometimes I slip smaller assignments in between the larger ones. There are days when tackling another novel seems daunting, especially when I can polish off a magazine article in just a day or to and savor that sense of accomplishment. For instance, I just turned in an article for an upcoming issue of The Escapist, an excellent online magazine. It’s mostly about video games, but the editors aren’t shy about crossing that boundary when there’s good reason. Tabletop writers like Allen Varney, Will Hindmarch, and Mur Lafferty appear in its virtual pages too, and they and the other writers generally do a fine job.

By way of another example, one already published, check out my review of Laser Dolphin for Manifesto Games. It’s apparently been up since November, but if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s still fresh to you.
