Listed by Kirkus Review as one of the one hundred best indy books of 2019. A magical realism/dystopian story set in the near future against a background of climate change. Bobby Fallon is half human, half forest spirit of the wild hare clan—a trickster—and he’s pissed off. His best friend Arne is in jail, and he has to somehow find the money for bail. Bobby doesn’t realize that his efforts at fundraising, legal and illegal, would set off a cascade of events that would put his life at risk.


“A wrenching, complex novel that any fantasy fan would do well to pick up.” - Kirkus Review


“When you fight a violent and mean enemy, it’s difficult not to become violent and mean yourself,” an old friend advised Bobby Fallon.


Bobby is a trickster—half human, half nature spirit of the wild hare clan. He is also the guardian of a remnant of old growth forest near a small town in northern Wisconsin. He lives a marginal existence as a card shark, shoplifter, and small time criminal while participating in the secret culture of the forest spirits. His small town life is thrown into danger when his efforts to get his friend Arne out of jail spiral out of control. Set in the near future against a background of climate change, Wild Hare is a dystopian/magical realism novel with undertones of political commentary.

5 Reasons to Visit Istanbul

The stunning city of Istanbul is where East truly meets West. From southeastern Europe, the bustling metropolis reaches into southwest Asia.

Consequently, the Turkish nation is a blend of different cultures and historical flavors. The modern skyscrapers of Istanbul stand magnificently alongside the minarets of ancient mosques. Travelers are spoiled for the diversity of experiences in cuisines, sightseeing, and sheer eventfulness, even in a short visit.

The city is a blissful place to reside for citizens and tourists alike. The permanent residents enjoy the gleeful aura with which Istanbul is furnished while tourists find themselves in awe of the intermingling of tradition and modernity. From centuries-old breathtaking architecture to museums, concert halls, restaurants, and clubs, the city has so much to offer. So, there’s no reason to not go to Istanbul as you’re bound to have a good time there.

Can You Guess What the Favorite Video Game is in Every State?

Christmas has come and gone so now it is time for everyone to put out lists of the best/worst things they've done over the past year. Throw in what many people call the end of the decade, too, and you're overloaded with lists.

Well, here's another one from the team at SatelliteInternet.com. They wanted to know the most popular video games across the US this year, from 'Fortnite' to 'Minecraft' and 'Call of Duty.'

The Great Gopher Boat Giveaway

I haven't posted any big-boy toy giveaways in a bit and happen to run across a giveaway for a boat. I think that qualifies. Can't imagine going boat fishing with snow on the ground but not all my readers live in a colder climate state, and... the giveaway doesn't end until the end of February, so there is plenty of time to get even colder. Unfortunately, I live in an excluded state (California, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia, Alaska, and Hawaii), so can't enter myself. This is one of those cases where it paid to read the rules...

Five Favorite Newsletters

Every once in a while I post about trying to reduce the amount of email and snail mail that I get, and that you should try to do same. My Unsubscribe Successful post was about reducing email, while Stopping Unwanted Junk Mail was about the physical kind. With this post, instead of telling you about how you can reduce the amount of mail you get, I'd like to highlight a handful of mailing lists that I actually find useful. One of them, I've actually been subscribed to since the early 1990s.
