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…

Winterfall

December 24, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

A drift, a breath Another death Of season, and of time Gather around Family bound Beat snow-devils from your coat Summon your kin To hearth and stone To home and bone These ties that forever bind Winter has fallen A chill so near Pressing frosted claws…

Some Early Cheer

December 17, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Or late, depending on whether or not you were looking forward to this quarter’s newsletter. We’re still in the fourth quarter, though, so it wasn’t late as much as…strategically delayed and deployed. Or something. Anyhoo, Geadhain’s Quarterly was jus…

Creative Collective: David Antrobus

December 3, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Getting to know David was one of those ‘six-degrees-of-separation’ encounters. A few months back, I lost a member of my editorial team (to a new career, not the Great Beyond), and found myself in growing and desperate need of an editor. I reached out t…

The Long Road

November 26, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Writing these two novels—Feast of Darkness, Part I & 2–has been both the biggest struggle and achievement of my working life. It’s the conclusion to the series, and to be honest I’ve never really finished anything (professionally). Prior to being a…

Dust

November 12, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Meaningful thoughts come to us at the strangest of times; the inspiration for this poem hitting me while I was sweeping up dust the other day. I was thinking about how pointless, existentially, the process of cleaning really is—despite my Virgonian obs…

Kitties, Cuddles and Newsletter Prizes

October 29, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Today we’ll be discussing a hodge-podge of topics, and we’re not going too far beneath the surface with our insights. I mean, it’s been an intense few weeks, and after pushing so hard—emotionally—it’s time to put on the brakes. Sure, it has been a news…

Money, Money, Money

October 15, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

If there’s one thing that J and I have fought about throughout our relationship, it’s money. Money–the lack and/ or abundance of it–is one of the most common relationship stressors. When J and I met, I had a decent salary for a young man. I made 50K/…

Creative Collective: Simon J. Cambridge

October 1, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Such a grand, literary name for a person who I feel is a genius of the written word. I don’t remember how, exactly, I first encountered Simon’s work. I believe it was while browsing for a new fantasy title to read on my Kindle. The simplicity and stark…

Some Friendly Reminders

September 24, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Morning folks, hope you’re all having a nice weekend. I’m still recovering from a hangover from my partner’s 40th birthday, which we celebrated on Friday. I haven’t drank in almost 2 years, so I’ve no one to blame but myself (and perhaps our charming I…
