Oh, uh, hey.

Still nothing going on here at Malevolent & Benign for the foreseeable future, but on the off chance anyone's still got this joint saved to their RSS feeds, I wanted to mention some current blogular projects.

Phasic Archives is my personal attempt at a a multimedia cyclopedia of the planet Vanth and its denizens, an Encounter Critical themed congeries of pulp covers, retro-futurism, sci-fi and sci-fantasy illustration, and the odd audio and video.

Alone With the Sandwich is a collection of sandwiches I made, photographed, and ate. I bet you like sandwiches.
