Embattled AG now accused in sex scandal 'cover-up' 
I know what you were thinking - this Attorney General controversy just doesn't have enough gay pedophilia to be a proper Republican scandal. Well fret no more!

And this is from World Net Daily - they're just to the right of Genghis Khan. Gonzales must really be in trouble.

On March 2, 2007, Governor Rick Perry appointed Jay Kimbrough, his former staff chief and homeland security director, to serve as "special master" to lead an investigation into the Texas Youth Commission sex abuse scandal. Shortly thereafter, the commission stopped a hiring practice that had allowed convicted felons to work as administrators in the system. The practice had involved a requirement that prior criminal records be destroyed for employees hired by the commission.

I don't even know where to start.

Exclusive interview with Richard S. Prather 
Linda Pendleton very kindly directed me to this in-depth and fascinating interview with Richard S. Prather she conducted in December of 2006. Prather, of course, was the creator of Shell Scott and wrote many other crime novels, including the recent Hard Case Crime edition of The Peddler.

In this incredible interview, Prather gives detailed notes on how to write a novel (he literally tells you exactly how to do it using Jack Woodford's technique), and touches on topics as diverse as books every writer should read, plotting, numerology, automatic writing, channeling, gurus, UFOs and more!

Linda Pendleton is the widow of the late Don Pendleton, creator of Mack Bolan, the Executioner, and a writer in her own right. I would like to thank her for providing this very valuable resource.

RIP: Richard S. Prather 
Sad news. I've got a stack of Prather's Shell Scott books next to my bed. This site has some good information on Prather and a nice interview. That particular interview is what turned me on to Jack Woodford and his excellent book on writing Trial and Error.

There was a guy named Jack Woodford, who wrote the best book for writers that I ever read. It's called Writing and Selling. It was originally called Trial and Error. If you can find it, I highly recommend that book. I think it's the single best book for people who want to be writers.

Buy Loren Coleman A Beer 
If you met Loren Coleman, famed cryptozoologist and writer, would you buy him a beer? I would. And not a cheap one either - one of those good $5 dollar ales.

Here's your chance. Loren is having some financial trouble and is struggling to keep his excellent and informative web site, Cryptomundo, on line. Cryptomundo is a valuable resource for all things cryptozoological and a worthy addition to the Weird Wide Web.

You can help by donating a little cash. There's a Pay Pal link on the site and here are instructions on how to help by check or money order, or by buying a signed copy of one of Loren's many classic books. I bought a copy of Mysterious America, one of my favorite books from my youth and one of the reasons you're reading this right now.

So pretend you're hanging out with Loren Coleman this weekend. For the price of a beer or two you can help keep one of the best sites on the Web open and available to all of us. Every little bit helps. I don't have huge traffic on this blog, but $5 bucks from every reader would go a long way.

And no, I don't think he'll spend the money on beer.

Telepathy Confirmed In Recent Tests 
At Book of Thoth. Via the Anomalist.

Best part: Professor Peter Atkins commented in a radio interview that the samples used were tiny, and that the effects were statistically insignificant, further, that the experiments had not been conducted in a "scientific" way.

Professor Atkins later admitted that he had not actually seen any of the findings of the experiment, but insisted that it made no difference to his original statement, adding that there are no serious reasons for believing in the effect of telepathy.

I have never met Professor Atkins, but I feel it is safe to say that he is a dwarf who enjoys dressing in women's clothing and fondling livestock. I see no serious reasons for believing otherwise.
