Jeff Cohen First of all, happy holidays to all who are observing anything. And no, I didn't just make a political statement. That's just silly. This is the last full week of new DEAD GUY posts, so it's necessary to... Continue reading

From a much bigger snow Jeff Cohen I hate snow. There was snow in my area this past weekend, and that is unacceptable. It wasn't even a lot of snow. In fact, this was as easy-to-ignore a snow "event" as... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Wow. 2017. Won't be sorry to see this year go, will we? It's December, and you know what that means! (No, DON'T cue the Christmas music.) That's right: This is the last month of new DEAD GUY posts.... Continue reading
It's just my opinion, Lynne, but I think that ANY story which ends with its protagonist out of the action, doing nothing, is not as good as it could be. Genre doesn't play a role for me in this; I don't see the point of following a character through the whole story if s/he isn't going to be involved in its resolution.

Jeff Cohen "I hate painting. I love having painted." "I hate singing. I love having sung." "I hate acting. I love having acted." "I hate dancing. I love having danced." You never hear those phrases, do you? I don't recall... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Those who have visited this blog previously might notice the change in design. Yeah. It's really green. We get that. The thing is, this is the result of making preparations for the sign-off of DEAD GUY at the... Continue reading
Today we welcome back former DEAD GUY Dale Spindel, one of our library bloggers, as part of the DEAD GUY farewell tour! So glad to have Dale back one more time! Dale Spindel I was invited back for one last... Continue reading
I have been doing my level best, Loretta. But I live in a pretty blue state so my voting power has been somewhat redundant.

That's my point, Lynne. I think there ARE enough to go round (I'm being British there). I just think we need to do a better job of standing up and identifying ourselves.

You don't need an apology from me, Barb. I should have been outraged decades ago.

Jeff Cohen Dear All Women: No. Not every guy is a sexual predator or an unbelievable jerk who believes he is entitled to belittle, humiliate, revolt and violate you because he's a man and you're not. It's not normal, it... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen I've discussed characters here before and one of the points I've made was about the writer's need to understand that the people with whom they populate their stories don't know they're in books/movies/plays/television commercials. They think they're living... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Tomorrow, for those of you who never turn on a television or go to a grocery store, is Halloween. Which sends some adults into a frenzy of glee about ghouls, goblins and "sexy" costumes, and others into a... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen A couple of days ago I named a gay couple Adam and Steve. I was going to add, "I couldn't help it," but let's be honest. I could have chosen not to do that because it might offend... Continue reading
