More columns: Suvudu and otherwise

So, I’ve got not one but two new columns up for your perusal. Or reading. Or pointing and laughing. Whatever.

First, my latest Suvudu column, about the "Hollywood ending" and why dark endings aren’t always superior to happy ones, using the TV series Supernatural as an example.

Second, SFF Chat is doing a series of eight guest blogs from Jewish authors for the eight nights of Hanukkah. My particular entry is an exploration–almost thinking out loud, really–about why I haven’t used many Jewish characters in my writing.

As always, I look forward to any comments, thoughts, or questions you may have. Happy Hanukkah to those that celebrate it–and heck, to everyone else, too.
