Dustin' off the Elder Scrolls

I've been getting back into Oblivion lately. I started in on this one when it came out, played for about 20 hours or so and never touched the main quest. I also found I was having trouble leveling up, but that's because I started out with the wrong character class. Well, I made the momentous decision to start over from scratch with a custom class and now I'm hooked once more. On paper, it seems like I'm not getting anywhere in that game, but I somehow spend entire nights playing it. Now that I've got the right kind of character that suits my style, I'm leveling up faster and getting even more addicted. When the hell am I supposed to get any work done, Bethesda?? HUH???

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.
