Back from my August 2012 grave

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Wow, I haven't ventured into these discussions in almost 1 1/2 years. Curiosity brought me back. I always loved my time here. Found the people engaging, intelligent, and fun to communicate with. The curiosity part: is it still the same?

Briefly about me: I'm 31. I first started participating at The Cult forums if September 2007, if dates can be trusted, which means I spent much of my formative late twenties here (screw the teens; twenties are the true formative years. Or at least, they create a much more important form of yourself). Says me, the wizened 31 year old.

I read. Of course. Currently halfway through Brian Evenson's Immobility. I'm an enormous Evenson fan. He's an American great, if you ask me.

Most of my time is spent divided among work, family, making YouTube videos, and writing. I've got a YouTube channel focused on books and stupid humor ( I have 5 books of fiction published.

It's good to be back, I think.
