Wake Up

June 24, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

I’ve been so busy with the manuscript(s) lately that I haven’t been commenting on the news. A lot has happened: a divisive election here in Ontario, the escalated fracturing of culture in the US, the destruction of decades of advancement in globalizati…

Inspiration

May 6, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

As it goes with moody personalities, this week I fell into a bit of a lowpoint. My partner and I are in a holding pattern of sorts: waiting for events to move—my manuscript (from the editor), another project I’m working on, some professional changes fo…

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…

A Golden Age of Sci-Fi and Fantasy

March 11, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

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…

Little Disasters

February 25, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Ugh, what a slog of a week. Both of my cats were suffering from digestive issues and I was literally up to my elbows in shit and vomit from Monday to Saturday. Their stomachs have since settled down from whatever bug afflicted them, and there are no fu…

Authenticity vs. Posturing

February 11, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Creative Collective, Year In Review

January 28, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

What started as a curiosity to force myself to read the work other writers (due a commitment of time that I’m poor at allotting—not a lack of interest) turned into a project that reached beyond my wildest expectations. Eleven amazing artists, and not o…

A Reading at The Round

January 21, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

This week I was invited to share my work via a Chiseries reading event. The videos are below. I don’t really have much else to say and the 2-part video is about 15m, though you can expect lots of chatter in the upcoming weeks, including last year’s Cre…

Art Begets Art

January 7, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

(Article originally appeared on Hypable.) I got my first tattoo when I was 20 years old. It was somewhat meaningless, as many pieces of body art can be when gotten on impulse. I hadn’t been drinking or anything, though my judgement was no less clouded…

Auld Lang Syne

December 31, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Well, that’s a wrap—almost. Another 365 days gone, goals achieved, failed or postponed. All in all I’d consider 2017 a personal (not politicial) success. My highs: completing the Four Feasts till Darkness saga, marching and speaking on the news, adopti…
