Post Baker Street Irregulars (Alternative Sherlock)
My latest project is editing a collection of Alternate Sherlock Holmes stories, to be published by Diversion Books.

The most exciting part is that I'm editing it with NY Times Bestselling Author Jonathan Maberry, and we have some pretty big names contributing, including David Gerrold (the guy who wrote the old Star Trek episode "The Trouble with Tribbles") who has won multiple awards over the years; NY Times Bestseller Heidi McLaughlin; Keith DeCandido; Gail Z. Martin; Ryk Spoor; Jody Lynn Nye; Hildy Silverman; Beth Patterson -- if you read science fiction and fantasy, some of those names should be known to you.

The idea is to have Sherlock Holmes in a different body in a different time, so we have Sherlock as an alien; Sherlock as a female monk; as a computer program; as a young girl; as a vampire; as a parrot; as a TV reality show host....

I really like these stories and am looking forward to this. Coming in March 2017

You're a fantasy maven as well. Maybe add that to your little boast bio. ;)

Did a five-hour YouTube radio show interview about the book last night. Whew!

I was the main guest for the first hour, but I stuck around for the entire thing since I was the co-editor of the book. Every hour would be another guest author: First there was Jim Avelli, then Keith DeCandido, Jody Lynn Nye, and Ryk Spoor.

He is Michael A. Ventrella. Ask him for his list of achievements. He goes into great detail. He even got to second base while in college!

Is that supposed to be impressive? People start losing their virginity at 13 around me.

I'll let you be the judge of that once Groucho gives you his career summary.

The liberals were the ones having sex.

I live in an area with a relatively even split between Republicans and Democrats. Outside of the major cities PA is relatively evenly split.
