I wonder if the movie will be as good as the book?

Picked up the DVD for the animated Planet Hulk movie. Talk about an awesome comic book! That story had it all and it was focused on a huge green dude that smashes stuff. I know the movie can't cover all the bases of a 10+ issue story arc, but I hope it's good enough to represent. I want to know where the second Doctor Strange animated feature is!

In other news, Skinners 4 is coming along nicely. My brain is already chugging on Skinners 5, which amounts to a whole lot of grinding gears and smoke coming from the space between my ears. Considering the previous paragraph, I can't help but think how cool a Skinners comic book would be. I'd take a movie too, in case any Hollywood big-timers are reading this. Heh.

I've become addicted to Jimmy John's sandwiches. Not only are they delightfully tasty, but their delivery truly is freakishly fast!! There's one across the street from my place, which means the sandwich is there sometimes before I hang up the phone from ordering. Ok, maybe not THAT freakish, but pretty darn close.

Had our first rain of the winter season. It's nice to have the piles of snow washed down to the point where I can turn onto another street and actually SEE if a car's coming or not. I know. I'm picky.

Should I get a coffee drink? An Almond Joy Latte from Scooters sounds great right about now. If the Jimmy John's guy would swing by there to pick one up for me, I'd never have to leave my sanctuary.

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.
