OTHER STUFF BY JASON POMERANTZ
Long Limbed Tales
If you enjoy Fiddle and Burn, you might also wish to sample one or two LONG LIMBED TALES. Told in the style of the Brothers Grimm, the methods and techniques of these stories are old but the scenery and characters are as modern as the latest web browser. You’ll find that some of these tales are being retold, in a radically different style, in Fiddle and Burn.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
It's been called "the first true American fairy tale" and L. Frank Baum's masterpiece of children's literature richly deserves the title. You can hear my reading of MP3 Podcast Recordings of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz at Mama Lisa's Children's Classics.
These recordings are also coming soon to Podiobooks.
The dangers of taking things literally: IRWIN GOES TO HELL.
In case there's some confusion: JESUS VS. SUPERMAN.
SUPERMAN MOVES TO BROOKLYN. Just, you know, while we're on the subject.
Theory and Craft
THREE PRINCIPLES OF ONLINE SERIALIZED FICTION. An article originally written for the now defunct "Blogfic" blog, in which I discuss some of the rules I try to follow when writing Fiddle and Burn. I've reposted it on my personal blog.
Comic Book Journalism
Once upon a time, I had a regular column on COMIC WORLD NEWS called MYSTERIES AND CONUNDRUMS. The highlight was an interview with one of my favorite writers, NEIL GAIMAN, about his series 1602.
The Day Job
In my secret identity, I pose as the mild-mannered VP of Planning and Digital Media at R. A. Rapaport Publishing, fine purveyors of health magazines and books. Among other things, I help run the Diabetes Self-Management web site.
Jason's Personal Blog
Not really intended for the general public, but not particularly private either. My place to record whatever strikes my fancy.
