Because it turns out that I like having specific forums for specific pop culture obsessions, I maintain several different blogs, each devoted to different subjects. I call this the “Atomic Pulp Network,” because, like most writers, I’m pretentious and somewhat full of myself – when I’m not so insecure I can barely function. Here’s a directory to those sites.
My personal blog (well, they’re all personal, but this one has no specific theme) is Atomic Pulp & Other Meltdowns. This is where I write about my writing, my various pop culture obsessions (comics, sword & sorcery, pulp, B-movies) and, on occasion, my life.
The most popular of my blogs – by a large margin – is Space: 1970, which is devoted to the science fiction movies and television shows of my childhood (roughly 1968-1983), including Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Logan’s Run, Planet of the Apes, Space: 1999, etc. I review DVDs, write essays, post pictures of “space babes” of the era, wax nostalgic about old toys and comic books,and other odd bits of 1970s-era rarities.
Then, there’s DVD Late Show, which despite the format, I don’t really think of as a blog. It’s actually pretty much my “day job” and the others are my hobby. I do recycle/cross-post a number of the articles on the other blogs on occasion, but they’re almost always revised somewhat to fit the different themes.
I’m a big fan of spy movies and fiction, and write about the subject at the Spy-Fi Channel. I review movies, TV shows and books, post pictures of Eurospy starlets and Japanese spy movie posters, and anything else spy-related that interests me.
My sole comics-only blog is Guns In The Gutters, devoted to crime (and espionage and adventure) comics and graphic novels, old and new. Sadly, it hasn’t been updated in a long time; I have tons of material on hand, but I simply haven’t had much time to read (or re-read) comics in a while, and the reviews I write for the site tend to take me longer to write than anything else I review. Still, there’s a fair archive, some “creator commentary” from folks like Chuck Dixon, Jay Faerber and Greg Rucka, and a few other gritty odds & ends.
