A new slice of Trek-flavored cheese

In Movies, Television by Lamar Henderson0 Comments

I’m not a huge fan of reboots in general, and the Star Trek reboot in particular. Oh, the J.J. Abrams 2009 movie was fine enough on it’s own merits, even considering the what-was-Spock-doing-in-the-cave plot hole. It was fun and pretty (I rather liked all the lens flare, myself). What I didn’t care much for was how this story related to …

The Meandering Dead

In Fiction, Humor by Lamar Henderson0 Comments

When the zombie apocalypse came, it really wasn’t all that bad. It started small enough. A new strain of flu was making the rounds that fall — not a bad strain, nothing to panic over, just new. A couple days of sniffles and coughs and body aches and then back to the grind. Except it wasn’t just a couple days …

The Gates will be Closing Soon

In Fiction by Lamar Henderson0 Comments

“It’s late. The gates will be closing soon.” “Why? Do you have somewhere to be outside?” “No. It’s just an observation.” “Come back to bed. You’ve observed enough for now.” “Move over. You’re taking up all the space.” “It’s not my fault you have such a little bed. You should come to my place. My bed is huge.” “Well, that …

The Cabin by the Lake

In Fiction by Lamar Henderson0 Comments

I’m not participating in National Novel Writing Month, but I have decided to try to write 2,000 words of original fiction every day this month, just because. Bits and pieces, fragments, whatever. Surprising no one more than myself, here’s my first installment. ***** The cabin. Kaylee hated the cabin. The cabin was on the western shore of the lake, halfway …

Revenge of the geek

In Movies by Lamar Henderson0 Comments

As you may have heard — if you weren’t getting blown away or flooded — there’s going to be another Star Wars trilogy of movies starting in 2015, episodes VII, VIII and IX. At this point, we have not a clue what the this trilogy is going to be about; I suspect that the people in charge at Disney/Lucasfilm don’t …

Phantasmal Lights

In Games by Lamar Henderson1 Comment

Believe it or not, I still get requests from people looking for Phantasm and Phantasmal Lights, the role-playing games I created in 1994 and 1999, respectively. Since I took down my Wildhaven Creative site a while back, the copy of Phantasmal Lights I had there to be downloaded has been homeless. So, for those interested, here it is again.   …

Making a break for it

In Humor, Technology by Lamar Henderson0 Comments

So, that was weird. I registered my first domain name, wildhavencreative.com, about 10 years ago with a discount registrar that you’ve heard of but whom I won’t identify here. At the same time, I also bought my first hosting package. Until then, I’d been dependent, almost literally, on the kindness of strangers in order to host anything personal on the …

Roll to save

In Games by Lamar Henderson2 Comments

A few weeks ago, I noticed that a group called The Onyx Path is now the officially licensed producer of tabletop RPG products owned by White Wolf. Of course, White Wolf was bought up by CCP, the Iceland-based publisher of the computer game Eve Online, a number of years ago. It was clear from the start that CCP was only …

Random notes

In Culture, Writing by Lamar Henderson0 Comments

I am chipping away at Reason to Be, hoping to find the novel that already existed in the big block of words. Copy editing is hard, especially when it’s your own work. For whatever reason, I’m following a traditional path with this novel — looking for a literary agent who’s willing to represent me and my work to the traditional …
