One of the many creative offshoots of the Warren Ellis battery farm for genial artists, writers and other wonderful passionate madfolk that mortals call Whitechapel is the group writing blog Weaponizer. Under the kindly eye of Bram E. Geiben aka Texture, it’s set a very high standard of work in a short time.
So last weekend I thought I’d try submitting a piece for them, see if I was ready to play with the big boys and girls.
Seems the piece – Tribe of the Strange: Origin Myth – went down OK. Enough for Bram to invite me onto the team as a staff writer, working the Fortean and occult beat.
I am beyond chuffed to be doing this. I have huge respect for all there and hope my mad point of view finds a home among them.
First piece as staff writer – Frequently Asked Questions about Weird Shit – went live this evening. Hope you like my new(ish) direction…
(To come at WPNZR – more rumbling on about oddness and hopefully the birth of the Mason Lang Film Club!)
And here, the next Guttershaman – “…of Jedi and Jail” – coming soon.
