Inspiration

May 6, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

My Heart Screams and Soars

April 29, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

For the people of Toronto and their loss and bravery during a domestic terror attack* that rocked our city early this week. On Monday, the city fell under a controlled panic, never crossing into Islamaphobia or hysteria, waiting until facts and foes we…

Our Colonial Privilege

April 22, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

I’m usually good at avoiding Facebook melodrama. I post my personal opinions here, online, in a space curated for myself and for those who want to communicate with me. In that, I can mostly insulate myself from extremist hyperbole and filter in only th…

Jessica Jones: What Went Wrong?

April 15, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Last week I raved about Wanted, my latest obsession. I also made mention of my disappointment with Jessica Jones’ latest offering. Such disappointment was mentioned as an aside, as I wanted that post to be all about the deserved success of Wanted. So,…

April 8, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Last week, while flicking through Netflix’s ever more burgeoning and dizzying selection of shows, I eventually settled on an Australian drama called Wanted. Synopsis looked decent: two women brought together as witnesses to a murder, now on the run (fr…

Creative Collective: DC Hampton Jacobs

April 1, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Come On In

March 25, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

I finally wrapped up 99% of the preparations for moving/ selling our humble abode, which means I can get back to writing next week. I’m sure gonna miss this place. We’ve lived here for nine years; before Zeus or mom left us, before I embarked on this j…

Homeward

March 18, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

It’s strange: having to say goodbye to a place where you’ve lived almost a decade of your life. We’re moving on–moving up, I suppose–in September, and the past few weeks have been a buzz of contractors, packing, data disposal hauls and all of the thi…

Interview originally appeared in Publisher’s Weekly’s Booklife Bestselling indie author Christian A. Brown resists labeling his work, though it has been called speculative fiction. His Four Feasts till Darkness series takes place in the fantasy realm o…

Creative Collective: Luanne Bennett

March 4, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

I’m delighted to share with you today a snippet from Luanne Bennett’s latest work: Crossroad of Bones. I love crossroads—since they’re usually where supernatural forces converge—and I love bones and creepy things so I figured I’d like this novel! And I…
