Scide Splitters

Starting in February 2013, I began writing the Scide Splitters blog for Amazing Stories Magazine.  It consists of reviews of humorous science fiction stories, novels, collections and anthologies.  These reviews cover not only new releases, but also classics that I think are worth bringing to the attention of modern readers.
