Note: If you’re wondering about the Radiohead Pairings, the explanation is here. Also, I decided to make them into a Spotify playlist! I don’t know why this didn’t occur to me sooner; now I can include all the album versions I wanted in the first place. 

You can listen to all my Radiohead Pairings HERE.

I didn’t know him well. Nobody did, really: he was the new kid. But he was funny, and he was cute, and I probably would’ve said yes when he asked me out, except that’s when the gullet-eaters attacked, and he didn’t know not to scream.

Nothing good came of being conscious this early in the morning, but eating jelly donuts in the stiff house was a special sort of low.

The Price You Pay is Red” – The Book Smugglers – November 2015
Made her sound beautiful, and hell, she probably had been. But the dead don’t look nothing but dead.

Radiohead Pairing: “Life in a Glass House”

The Case of the Little Bloody Slipper” – The Book Smugglers – November 2015
It was half past eleven when I saw her. She was standing at the top of the staircase, with restless fingers and defiant eyes, wrapped in blue silk that clung to her hips. Her legs went on, and on, and on.

Expiration Date” – Weird Tales – August 2011 (video)
The doctor said you expired at 11:55.


Trope Anatomy 101: Choose Your Own Family” – The Book Smugglers – December 2016
The idea is that family–like Christmas or really any holiday–can mean different things to different people at different times, and it’s okay if yours changes, if you have a new one you built yourself, or even if you have more than one.

Trope Anatomy 101: The Girls Who Deserve to Die” – The Book Smugglers – October 2016
I aim to see what sorts of tales might have been told, had our dead girls lived to tell them.

Trope Anatomy 101: Team No One” – The Book Smugglers – August – 2016
Ideally, we shouldn’t vote for a romance the way we vote for political elections. I want to care about two people coming together because I think they work together, not because one is sorta okay, or the lesser of two evils.

Trope Anatomy 101: Your Body Is Not Your Confession” – The Book Smugglers – July 2016
The entire joke centers on the presumption that nobody could want anyone so huge, which is also a message that will stick with you, especially after you hear it time and again.

Trope Anatomy 101: Waving Away Disability and Chronic Conditions in FictionThe Book Smugglers – May 2016
At the end of this adventure, after our child hero has kissed a girl and given an inspiring speech and talked to a skeleton and escaped the jaws of death, the boy stands on a beach, looks at his brother making out with a pretty girl, and dismissively tosses his meds behind him, saying, “Oh, who needs it?”

Bullshit, right? That’s unequivocal bullshit. 

Trope Anatomy 101: Beyond the Standard Heroic Range The Book Smugglers – April 2016
And that’s when I saw something that surprised me even more than an evil gorilla with mental superpowers: the police detective in question, Joe West, showed abject and unrestrained terror in the face of his worst fears.

Trope Anatomy 101: Reader, I Didn’t Marry Him – I Kicked His Jerk Ass to the CurbThe Book Smugglers – February 2016
I figured the best plan was to pick a romance that was also a murder mystery set in the future. 

And maybe that plan would have been successful, if I hadn’t hated the love interest with the power of a thousand suns.

Trope Anatomy 101: Learn to Love Your Mary Sue” – The Book Smugglers – January 2016
And the best thing about it was that I already knew what trope I wanted to hit first: Mary Sues, because there’s such a weird stigma against them, despite the fact that, like flag burning or the California condor, I rarely actually come across an instance of one in the wild.

Horror Movies – Moving Past The Final Girl” – The Book Smugglers – October 2015
The mystery, if there is one at all, always centers on the identity of the killer. It never centers on the identity of the survivors.


OB/GYN” – Gargoyle 58 – June 2012
She says, “We’ve already been dead once. Do you want to surrender to death again?”

The Kiss” – Gargoyle 58 – June 2012
Curious, how people expect a wandering necrophiliac to be a hero.

V” – PANK – August 2011
This is not a secret.

Why Princess Leia Was Never a Jedi, No Matter What the Fanfiction Says” – Gargoyle, Volume 57 – July 2011
Of course what self respecting woman would fight the Dark Side with a glowing phallus?

Brains” – Gargoyle, Volume 56 – July 2010
I want to talk about zombies now. Is that OK?

  1. Hi Carlie, I read your story on lightspeed and liked it…was wondering if I could borrow you now and then as a contributor for it’s nothing huge, a mix of Trek and other sci-fi stuff, so you could write about either…anyway, take a look and see if it’s your kind of thing. If not, no worries.


    • Hi, Oli. Thanks! I’m glad you liked the story. As far as contributing goes . . . possibly. I checked out the site a bit, and it looks pretty cool. Since it’s not a paying gig, though — which trust me, I understand — I would probably be an occasional contributor at best. Most of my writing time is divided between my own blog and original work I’m trying to sell, so it doesn’t leave me much time for anything else. (After all, I have to watch Justice League reruns at some point, right? 🙂 )

      Let me think on it a bit. If I have something in mind, I’ll let you know, and you can tell me if it’s something you’d like to have on your site. Sound okay?

      • Sure, it’s up to you. I’ve just started paying for fiction, but I don’t have enough to pay contributors on a regular basis. Maybe one day.

        Just send me an e-mail if you have something you wanna put up…it’s a pretty casual arrangement, you could write something once every 3 months if you wanted, I don’t mind.
