Why subscribe?

Honestly, I have no idea. There are a million of these dumb things out there you could be reading instead, and most of those writers are putting a lot more energy and thought into theirs.

That said, I’m told I’m a fun read. I have lots of opinions — on sci-fi, on social justice, on TV, on music — some that aren’t fit to pitch, or that I’m too lazy to pitch, or that I’d prefer to send directly to you beautiful creatures for free rather than suffer the indignity of getting paid $200 for the rights to my creative output in perpetuity. And the publications regularly publishing the center of my taste Venn diagram are dwindling.

TL;DR: you’re probably here because you like the same shit as me, and you enjoy reading someone else yelling about it.

Your inbox will probably only get clogged up by my newsletters once in a blue moon, anyway — most recently, a good 16 months passed between MalonEmails! (I think that was a record for me, though.) That, of course, could change at any time. But then, that’s what the unsubscribe button is for, isn’t it?

Come hang out with me!
