Leaving 2019 in a hail of bullets (and a Top 10 list to boot)

  • Shawn Hebert, proprietor of Lailokens Awen (whose candles I wholeheartedly endorse) posted a terrific review of my latest release — Descendant: A Novel of the Liber Monstrorum
  • I don’t really do New Year’s Resolutions, but I do like to make plans for the coming year and more occultdetective.com content is high on my list of priorities.
  • Hellier is one of the better paraentertainment series out there and well worth a look if you haven’t. I have a soft spot for Planet Weird content.
  • I read just shy of 60 books this year which is becoming an unfortunate trend.
  • I’m making a list (and checking it twice) of projects I want to manifest in 2020. Truth is, I have so many irons in the fire, and so many more I want to add, it seems like a improbable set of goals. Hopefully, if I can accomplish a fraction of these, I will be somewhat at peace with it.
  • If you’re into gaming, you might want to keep an eye on Bordermen Games next year. We have a lot of interesting things in development and the blog will be showcasing reviews, serial fiction, and GM tips and tricks in 2020.
  • Thrilled to be continuing my relationship with Paint Monk’s Library. If you dig comics, then yeah, it’s the place to be.
  • I was going to post a Top 10 list of my favorite films of 2019, but, unfortunately I didn’t see ten films that I thought deserved the recognition.
  • So, no Top 10 movies, but Top 10 TV series is a little easier to manage. See my list below.

Top 10 TV Series of 2019


  1. The Mandalorian
  2. Game of Thrones
  3. The Good Place
  4. Stranger Things
  5. Good Omens
  6. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
  7. Lucifer
  8. The Man in the High Castle
  9. Living with Yourself
  10. Veronica Mars

Bonus: Best Scene — John Constantine meets up with Lucifer on Earth 666 on an episode of the Flash (Crisis on Infinite Earths, Part III)

  • Last bullet. Will there be an Occult Detective Awards this year? I suppose there will. It will be my 10th year doing so. I guess the bigger question is, will they continue after that…
