A face full of wild bison

What do you think will happen when folks scamper after a full-grown bison and someone throws a stick at him to get his attention?

    There’s a paperback copy of Lee Whittlesey’s “Death in Yellowstone” on sale at Amazon, for $ 11.53. A delightful read, and a bargain for that woman.

    I’m aquainted with a fellow who runs a buffalo farm in Belgium, WI; he reports that the slaughterhouse workers are terrified of those creatures, and demand that he kill them himself (he uses a .45-70) while still trailered. When the butchers are convinced that the buffalo is sufficiently dead, they drag it off of the trailer with a forklift. I can testify that the steaks are worth the inconvenience.

    About Me

    I've worked as a ghostwriter, a magazine editor, and an acquisitions editor in publishing, and lived for quite a while in NYC. Now I live in the trees and am a freelance "content provider" for print and digital media and for broadcast programming. I also rep the work of angling artist Ernest Schwiebert. I published a short story collection, "The Midnight Fish," in 2001, and the satires, "The Vampire Survival Guide," (2008) and "The Vampire Seduction Handbook," co-written with Luc Richard Ballion" (2009). My novels are represented by Harold Ober Associates, NYC.

    What I'm Up To


    Grizzly rear paw print found on Kvass Trail in...

    Spring ‘10: Going fishing, making stuff up, fooling my friends, trying to find an illustrator for a graphic-novel project. Other than those things, the usual: Working on a new long-form project while trying to sell the others.
