I want to scream at that tiny percentage of ivory tower critics that this is a cosmic horror picture with Nic Cage that is Lovecraft and Richard Stanley and you are watching it at midnight at a genre film festival surrounded by goths and people with face tattoos and three inch wide ear implants and Doc Brown haircuts and wearing cravats who just drank the bar at Alamo Drafthouse dry. What were you expecting? Why are you even here?
I get asked all the time who my favorite currently active writer is. Hand’s down it is my friend Nick Cole. And no, not because he’s my friend. I made that determination when I read Old Man and the Wasteland back before we became friends, when that book was an Indie phenomenon, before it got […]
Hi, As most of you know, Hollywood is making a full-length major motion picture from my novel Pennsylvania. It is a fun, exciting, patience-scrambling, wonderfully head-shaking exciting time for us. For all of us. But here’s the thing. I URGENTLY NEED YOUR HELP, and it won’t cost you a dime. At the most it will […]
Hey y’all! The fundraiser for our trip in September is going pretty well. For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, take a little time and watch the video and you can get caught up. As of this morning (this video was made yesterday afternoon) we’re at exactly $2,500 raised. We […]
My wife Danielle and I are, Lord willing, traveling to Hollywood in September to meet the production team for the Pennsylvania movie. In the first part I wrote about my quixotic quest to play the character Goa Eeguls in the movie. But I want you to know that it is a fun quixotic quest. I […]
This one was easy. D Dub Mac offered to donate $199 to my fundraiser if I’d sing this song. I sing this one all the time for free D Dub! If someone has a real challenge, drop it in the comments.
I’m on a quest! In 2014, during the height of my novel Pennsylvania’s popularity, there was a lot of demand for Pennsylvania short stories (and a ton of fan fiction!) so I wrote two short pieces as the back story of one of the most popular characters… Goa Eeguls (or Eagles.) The two stories, which […]
If people thought an Amish/Scifi novel and film was a weird concoction, wait until they see the Bunker’s in Hollywood! We’re heading to Hollywood in September to meet with the production team of the film and to make a “Plain People” adventure of it! I mean, who doesn’t want to follow along as we share […]
Time and the Gloaming introduces the world to Michael Bunker’s unique and fascinating world of time travel. Finally gathered into this exciting anthology and now available in audio, Bunker’s time travel stories are the freshest take on the genre since Jack Finney mastered it decades ago, in Time and Again. In the audiobook, you’ll find the story […]
The word “poor” has long ago ceased to have any real descriptive meaning in this world. What poverty means has become completely subjective, and also very personal and political. For example, a recent survey showed that almost everyone who makes below $70,000/year considers themselves to be poor (or struggling,) regardless of any official nomenclature of […]
The process of a novel making it’s way into being a movie is long and sometimes complicated. But we seem to be moving right along. Things are going great in PA movie news, and I hope to have stuff I can share with you soon, but take my word for it — the project is […]
