The Last Paper Stars

This is the cover spread
(photos by Rustle!) for the
latest Good Deed Rain book,
The Last Paper Stars. Yep,
it's another timely one.
Original stories written in
my twenties. Waited all this
time to be published. Hope
you enjoy this collection.

New Good Deed Rain book

Just sent the latest Good Deed Rain
book off to the printer. This book
is called The Last Paper Stars.
It's a collection of 3 adventures:
The Last Frankenstein, Paper Guide,
Stars Become Sand When They Land.
All set in the rough, futuristic America
we call home. More about this book soon.
Publication date is February 14.


Back in the old days of Seattle
in the 1970s, tuning in a TV movie
called Five Million Miles to Earth.
I remember I had to watch it
standing up in case I needed to

king o' the sea

Phew! This was from 2013, many moons ago.

Good Deed Rain progress

There are a bunch of new Good Deed Rain
books planned for publication in the next few
months. You're going to like them! Here's a
couple teasers. Another book featuring the
illustration talents of Aaron Gunderson,
which features cowboys, pirate radio, a
gorilla, dreams and more. And the other
picture is from the second novel I wrote
back on the East Coast in college. I'm
excited to share this one finally. Set in
New York City, it also includes the
journal that I kept when I lived there.
I only recently rediscovered this--I utterly
forgot that I kept a journal during my stay
and it is quite fun to see how the fiction of
the book is mirrored by the daily goings on,
the subway observations, jobs, and blunders.
So plenty of good reading on the way for you!

next book...

This is a picture I just painted
for the next Good Deed Rain
book. You will soon meet a
world falling in the future
where Seattle is dream full
of sand.

2018 Good Deed Rain books #9

Good Deed Rain's 9th book published in 2018
is a wild collection of essays (and 2 plays),
Elbows & Knees. Here's your chance to read
up on beatniks & B-movies, beauties & beasts,
artists & ostriches. And more! I don't know if
there's another essay book like this around;
it would make a fun read by the winter fire.

Here's an excerpt from "The W. Lee Wilder from

Burning oil fields, trailing a disturbance. Theremin,
cigarettes, coffee. A crazy reporter with a pipe and
a photo of the moon: "If you want to know how
things turned out, read the Chronicle in the morning."
Chased around pallets, catwalks, hunted by Geiger
counter, The Phantom finally removes its helmet and
suit, escaping invisibly. It may be free, but it is trapped
in the Griffith Institute labyrinth without its radioactive,
magnetic, indestructible suit and its breathing apparatus
helmet. The Phantom's one chance for survival in a
strange land comes when it tries vainly to communicate
with a human named Barbara.
