Still cat-blocked. They’re insidious!

  1. Is that a can of Fancy Feast I see to the left on your desk? No wonder the kitties won’t let you get anything done!

  2. My three year-old daughter just looked at this picture and the previous one and then said that she wanted to see more pictures of cats. I looked through the list of the last 100 posts and discovered that there has been a shortage of cat pictures recently. This was most disappointing to her.

  3. Jen – wife. mother. knitter. unschooler. band geek. fatass. card-carrying socialist. militant breastfeeder. profane. agnostic. ENFP

    Clearly they have worked something out between them.

  4. O Great Scalzi, how wonderful it is to see the Beauteous Ghlaghghee.

    Except for another glimpse of your beshorted leg (or are those your big boy pants?) this picture is actually fairly decent.

    In order to have taken a better image you would have had to disturb Her Repose – and intelligently for a change, you realized this was not the thing to do.

    Given the circumstances we forgive the defects of the picture.

He is the author of A Latent Dark (2012) and BLOOM (2013) He has also written numerous short stories and contributed to dozens of video games. He is perhaps most famously known for building papercraft Eve Online ships, which continue to haunt him wherever he goes. He lives near San Francisco with his wife and their myriad of pets. He is a huge fan of technology, cats, dinosaurs, music, robots, bad science-fiction films, drum corps, humor, books, steampunk, horror, ravens, and strangeness. You can follow him on twitter @fersnerfer, or on Facebook Who runs marlanesque? That’s me, Marlan. Martin Kee is a pseudonym. You can call me Marlan if you like. Why use a pseudonym? It’s easy to remember. It shows up better on an Amazon search. It doesn’t get mispronounced or misspelled. Does that happen a lot? Only since birth. I give “Smith” as a name when I order Starbucks. After a while hearing “Grande white mocha for… Mar….Marlene? Marlane?” get’s a little old. So what are you, some kind of writer? Sure. I write text for video games mostly. I wrote an entire story for a Marathon mod called “Sons of Ludd” in the 90s. Now I write copy and content for mobile games as well as test them. That’s it? No. I write novels and short fiction. For a living? Lol… no. Oh, so you aren’t published. No I am. I’ve been in newspapers, newsletters… I published a book called A Latent Dark. It’s up on Amazon and Smashwords. I have a second novel called Bloom that should be coming out next year. Oh, so not really published. Depends on your definition. The book has been workshopped, vetted and professionally edited. Also the cover is great! It would look good on any bookshelf. It’s gotten some excellent reviews from people who have read it. Do you do anything else? I play a lot of video games. I ride a bike. I build paper models. I like making stuff. Stuff, huh? It keep me off the streets. And it beats watching TV.

    My wife is concerned that the blue bowl on your desk is your cat’s food bowl.

  6. A.J.: Just go to and search for “Caturday”, then click the number to the right of the headline…there you will encounter many pictures of cats. Most of which have been captioned to make the cats seem silly, which will probably amuse your three-year-old and annoy chang, who is not chang.

  7. I note the contents of your desk – one-a-day vitamins, one of those pop-top air fresheners you see in the back of custom spray painted vans, two gel hand sanitizers, coke zero and what I assume is a small bottle of Axe body spray. I can only assume you are writing your next Big Screen Thriller: Old Man’s Desk.
