Oh Doctor, what have you gotten yourself into this time?



A new BINDER OF SHAME story drops on Friday! Stick of Pain sold separately...




The RPG.net Rants
Uncensored, Unforgettable and Uncorrected

2002 was the year I first started to post stories for the amusement of others. (Aside from that shameful X-FILES fan fiction of course.) I began with these gaming anecdotes that I shared on the forums of RPG.net, a relatively safe haven for me at the time. They were strange little tales told in a kind of screenplay format that I used when I sketched out story dialogue.

The first one was pretty simple but as they went on they became more and more grandiose but they were raw and fun little bits of humor. I never bothered to proofread the things or set up any real kind of coherence or internal continuity- although snippets of these tales do show up in PRICE BEAKS AND HEARTACHES.

I'm posting them to the blog so I can add them to version of THE BINDER OF SHAME I keep here. I will do the first two today and then set up one a week until they're all there.

I've moved on a lot since I first created them but many of the folks that first came to know me through them are still reading my work now and they still keep finding new readers all the time.

If you have no idea what I am talking about prepare to be amazed, amused and offended.

And be warned these stories appear exactly as I did when I posted them on the forums. I haven't tried to edit them for fear of diluting their raw power.

Also I'm pretty damn lazy...

(Recommended Reads) 'Uncle Bush's Live Funeral' by Scott Seeke


On the publicity tour for the 2010 film Get Low, the first question from the audience was always "What's the true story that inspired this film?" After more than a decade of research, Get Low writer Scott Seeke answers that question with Uncle Bush's Live Funeral. This book tells the incredible true story of Felix "Bush" Breazeale, a feared hermit who attracted ten thousand strangers to the funeral he held while still alive in 1938. Seeke had begun researching Get Low as an outsider, a New Yorker married into a skeptical East Tennessee family. By the time Get Low arrived in theaters ten years later, he had earned their trust. They opened doors that allowed him to finally learn why Bush had his funeral while he was still alive, and why so many people came. He found the moving story of a man trapped by his culture and past, desperate to rewrite his life's story before it was too late. Uncle Bush's Live Funeral shows that any outcast can find acceptance, and any label can be overcome, all masterfully told by Get Low writer Scott Seeke.

(Recommended Reads) Arcane Solutions (Discord Jones Urban Fantasy Series Book 1) by Gayla Drummond



On New Year's Eve 2000, the stroke of midnight returned magic, both light and dark, to the world. Discordia Jones missed it. Struck down at that same instant like a cut-rate Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty mash up, she awakened three years later to a far stranger life, and saddled with psychic abilities. Working as a private investigator for Arcane Solutions only brings on more strangeness. At least there aren't talking mice...

From BLEEDING COOL


The character, last seen as a data ghost dispersing before the Doctor jumped into his own timestream, has always had a timey-wimey existence in relation to the Doctor. With her story seemingly ended, it was unclear if her time-traveling existence would allow her run into Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi. On the matter of her return, head writer and executive producer Stephen Moffat says, “As ever, with the most complicated relationship in the universe, it’s a matter of time …”

Creepypasta continues to go mainstream with Holly Ice's RUSSIAN SLEEP EXPERIMENT!

Found via DREAD CENTRAL


The Russian Sleep Experiment is a new horror/psychological novella by Holly Ice, inspired by the Cold War. The Soviet Union is conducting unethical, secret experiments in the depths of Siberia. This particular experiment is conducted on political prisoners ahead of the scientific trial being approved for human experimentation. The Soviet Union wants the edge in any coming conflict and to do this, they test Gas 76-IA on four volunteers. These political prisoners are offered their freedom in exchange for thirty days without sleep, powered by this mysterious gas, but the side effects are more than they had bargained for. 

The Russian Sleep Experiment is an extension to novella length of the original Creepypasta short story, with added content.

This extension of the tale has three parts:

Part 1: Told from the POV of one the prisoners, this part tells the story of how the political prisoners were recruited from their camp to take part in the experiment. (This was not explained in detail in the original short story.)

Part 2: Told from the POV of one of the experimentees and the lead scientist. This part fleshes out the major action of the original tale in real time. We see what happens from inside the mind of the prisoners and from inside the cage of the experiment, as well as from the logbooks of the very ambitious lead scientist.

Part 3: Told from the POV of one of the scientists involved in the experiment, after it has concluded. This final section shows the consequences of the experiment and is based in rural Siberia.

The Russian Sleep Experiment features artwork by award-winning graphic artist Daniel Tyka.

(Recommended Reads) MALUS DOMESTICA by S. A. Hunt


From the award-winning author of the Outlaw King series comes another harrowing adventure in the grand tradition of Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Charlaine Harris.


Robin Martine has come a long way.


She's not your usual college-age girl. More often than not, Robin's washing a load of gory clothes at the laundromat, or down at the lake throwing hatchets at pumpkins. She lives in an old van, collects swords, and dyes her mohawk blue.

Also, she kills witches for a living on YouTube.


You see, Robin's life was turned upside down by those hideous banshees from Hell. She spent high-school in a psych ward, drugged out of her head for telling the cops her mother Annie was murdered with magic. Magic from a witch named Marilyn Cutty.

After a 3-year warpath across America, she's come home to end Cutty for good.


But she'll have to battle hog-monsters, a city full of raving maniacs, and a killer henchman called the "Serpent" if she wants to end the coven's reign over the town of Blackfield once and for all...
