*DRUMROLL* The new Doctor Who…

The new Doctor is, gasp! A woman!

Specifically Jodie Whittaker, best known for her role on Broadchurch. Ironically, opposite a former Doctor.

For the record, as long as the stories, acting and action are good, I’m perfectly fine with a female Doctor, and honestly could care less. 

But more than a little part of me thinks this is political, and if it’s a political casting, then there will be politics and public perception weighed out in every episode. And that will destroy Doctor Who until they remove her and go back to a male lead. Then there will never be another opportunity for a woman as the Doctor because BBC bowed to the critics and journalists, not the fans.
When you listen to the noise and let social issues and talking head perception affect your choices, you will fail every time. I truly hope they chose Jodie for the right reasons, because she was the best choice of the possible choices, but I have some doubts….

I wish her the best of luck, and hope the new showrunner Chris Chibnall and the BBC don’t fuck her career for short term ratings and headlines….

“Storybook Endings” Now Available

I am very happy to announce that my newest book, “Storybook Endings” is now available!!!! For now you can buy it as a paperback or an e-book at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/63channelspress 

For those of you that use a kindle, nook or I-Pad, the book will be available on all those formats in 6-8 weeks. I’ll send out another announcement as each format become available.

if, for some bizarre reason you want an autographed copy, please shoot me a message, don’t buy from my store. I will send it to you directly with some extra goodies. This does cost a few bucks more than the book alone.

Here’s a first review of the book:

About the book:

“Captivating, complex, impressive and resolute, Storybook Endings “bend[s] the bright lights of tomorrow” into one of the most interesting gatherings of material published this past decade. Endings explores new ideas with characteristic brilliance and attention to detail. While his writing varies in forms from prose to free verse poetry and everything in between, Feulner is a truth-teller: “look[ing] inside the outside,” he makes his way through the varied forms, and in doing so, seeks to move through the self, the story, and the truth in ways that are never anything short of instantly fascinating  and immediately compelling. There aren’t many writers whose language so precisely resonates with the pervasive concerns of the contemporary human condition. Feulner is a powerful writer whose daring and ambitious “storybook endings” aims at the heart of extant America and hits their bull’s eye every time.”

– Michelle Greenblatt, Poetry Editor of Unlikely Stories, author of brain:storm and the ASHES AND SEEDS (forthcoming)
