Believe it or not, I don’t spend all of my waking hours thinking about Zero Calvin. And it is evident by the 10 year gap (and counting) that I don’t spend all of my waking hours writing the sequels. This is a collection of my other ideas, writings, and instructive articles.

Short Story: My Seat

With Halloween fast approaching, I thought it would be a good time to post this creepy short story:

My Seat

by Brian Cramer

Today was Dan’s first day of high school. The very thought of it put knots in his stomach.  To make matters worse, his family had just moved to this little country town from the city, which meant that he also had to deal with being a strange, new kid in a tight-knit farming community.

As he walked into his homeroom for the first time, Dan could feel the heat on the back of his neck from the other student’s intent stares while he searched for an empty seat. He found one by the window in the second-to-last row. It was a choice seat, so he wondered why no one had claimed it. Continue reading

New book available: “What the Luck?”

I’m thrilled to announce the release of my latest book, What the Luck?, currently available only on Kindle.

Here is the summary:

Bill Brabham, a recently unemployed financial manager from Houston, is down on his luck. He is not even sure what that means, but he hopes that he will be “up” on his luck sometime soon. When he travels to Japan in search of work, he gets his wish and becomes amazingly lucky, and his life turns into a string of strange coincidences and fortunate events.

However, nature always seeks a balance, and it becomes apparent that his good luck is coming at the expense of those around him. Not even little old ladies are safe in his presence.

That is, until he meets another man with the same strange luck, and together they explore their power and learn to control it. Of course, it is only a matter of time before they decide to use their power to become superheroes. And when they eventually find themselves in the middle of a plot that could destroy much of Tokyo, all they can do is hope that their luck will not run out.

And after you’ve picked this up, don’t forget to check out all the bonus pictures and video for the book, organized by chapter.

The Origins of Ecchi

Foreign words are great. Sometimes we use them to soften or obscure the meaning of a traditionally vulgar or taboo word or subject.

It seems that both the Japanese and the Americans, or at least a small otaku (nerd / anime and manga super enthusiast) subculture thereof, have been doing this with each others’ words and in some cases the words gets passed back and forth.
