Bark at the moon

There was a lunar eclipse last night and I don’t mean that in any way that could be taken as dirty. It was a real eclipse, but it wasn’t quite the Blood Moon I had been hoping for. As something of a werewolf buff, I always hope for a real good, rusty colored moon during an eclipse (again…nothing gross) ((damn, my mind must just be in the gutter today)). Kind of like this…

I’m not an astronomer, but I suppose these things may look different depending on where you’re at. When I lived in St. Louis, the eclipses were all nicely colored. Here in Omaha, it looked more like this.

Either way, it's pretty cool.

This is what happens without editors

I'm Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the SKINNERS series. Here you'll find various ramblings about movies, video games, TV, and...oh yeah...those books I write. If there's anything you'd like to discuss, just let me know. I try to update whenever the mood strikes me, so feel free to leave comments. There may be some occasional foul language, but anyone who's too easily offended probably doesn't read my stuff anyway.

Free Stuff

Here's how it goes. As usual, I've got my truckload of promo covers from EOS Books. I'll be going to some conventions, so I hope to see you there and I'll gladly sign your books. If you can't make it to a con, just email me your name, address and any inscription so I can send you a signed cover.

BONUS ---> If you would be so kind as to write up a review for any or all Skinners books and publish it on a site like, Barnes & Noble, Borders, or any other major review site, I can send you something extra. I made up some bookmarks (which I'll sign) and I've even put together some Shimmy's VIP passes (which I'll also sign). Can't guarantee the passes will get you into a real strip club, but I think they look pretty cool. Send me a link to your review along with your name, address and inscription, and I'll get these out to you as well.
