Researching some things for my Pulp Noir Ink & Shadows stories and came across this interesting article in Salon’s newsletter.


This is why women get inked: Feminism, tattoos and the new politics of body art

I interviewed her as she got tattooed; she showed no reaction to the pain she was receiving. This led the tattooist working on her to observe that “women sit so much better than men.”

They made a rhythmic click-clack sound

[You’ll need to watch the video below or be familiar with the novel or movie, The Caine Mutiny for this to make sense, or be humorous, to you.]

We were at sea and I went from the Combat Information Center to the ship’s bridge to match nav fixes with the Quartermaster’s chart. Done with that little bit of duty I walked over to the Captain who was also on the bridge at the time. I didn’t say anything as I stood there next to him. He was tall, about 6′ 4.” He glanced down at me.

“Lowery…” he nodded his head.

“Cap’n…” I nodded back.

We looked out on the Persian Gulf. We’d just transited the Straits of Hormuz. I reached into my pocket and took out two ball bearings I kept handy for the right occasion. I began to roll them in my hand. They made a rhythmic click-clack sound. He didn’t turn to me but I felt him stiffen. Neither of us looked at each other. I knew it was coming.

“Lowery, get off of my bridge…”

“Aye aye, sir.”

One of the Stories I Might Write – MSB with a cover reveal

My wife enjoys playing first-person shooter games and loves action movies and TV series that have a woman character that can kick ass. As a joke I told her I was going to write this story and planned to post this cover reveal on Facebook. That startled her and she said, “Please don’t.” She was thinking of what family would say or think, something I don’t pay much mind to. Still I respected her wish and didn’t. But you know… maybe I will write a story about her. Metal Starbitch that is. 😉

METAL StarBitch - a story idea from Dennis Lowery

Stan was guilty of many things… but not this one

Contains mature language… but don’t let it offend you… just mentally replace with ‘witch,’ ‘butt’ or ‘fudging.’ That’ll work just fine.

AFTER The Bomb – a reader wonders what happens next

“Good one! I hope the story would be continued after that… um… explosive ending!” –Damon Xanders, about Honey, Where’s That Book

AFTER The Bomb - Bob - Jane - Sandy - Timmy - A Flashfiction Sequel by Dennis LoweryTo which I replied: Thanks Damon; you never know — the saga of Bob, Jane, Sandy and Timmy in the aftermath might continue. Does Jane leave to search for Arturo (her true love, so she believes). Does Bob dig the Edsel out of the rubble to turn it into a shrine to memorialize what he’s lost. Does Sandy live long enough to get her braces off (and does their metal become radioactive through exposure to fallout). Does Timmy ever tell his mom and dad what really happened to his pet hamster. So many lose ends to deal with and we haven’t talked about survival yet. 🙂
