Open Wounds

Gelatinous Cubes and Hobbled Goblins


It’s two days before Christmas. I’ve done little shopping for some and finished for others. I’ll be scampering around NYC today finding last-minute gifts for my son. He’s been introduced to Dungeons and Dragons and he’s told me my gift for him (in addition to Amulet #4, Pokemon Black and White Cards, a Techdeck pack, and miniature radio controlled fighting tanks) can be a fully realized dungeon for him to adventure in so he can play. I’m up for it. I bought a small notebook with graph paper inside and a fine point pen – you have to have the right pen for these kinds of things. I’ll have to dust off my dice and look at the rules again. I think I’m missing page 36 from book one. It could be important but I can probably make up the rules as I go along.


A literary Christmas gift has been given to me by Kitty Bullard from Great Minds think Aloud Literary Community. she’s written a wonderful review of Open wounds and recommended it to her community. When a review starts with: “I feel “Open Wounds” is one of the greatest adventure books I’ve ever read,” I feel as if I’ve done all right. Thank you Kitty.

    • Hah! Yes, the Game Master inside of me has been waiting a long time to come out of hiding. A long, long time.

  2. I would give anything for a son to crawl dungeons with, but luckily, I have a daughter who’s just as into it. Did you read my Gelatinous Cube short? It’s wasn’t as good as your reanimated skeleton piece, but it was meant to be kind of silly.

    Dungeons & Dragons, and Christmas, and Family. There is simply nothing better!
