About

Welcome to my official author website, Archaeologies of the Weird. My fiction and poetry has appeared on 600 Second Saga, Steps Magazine, the Veg, and the Dawson College SPACE website. I have also published nonfiction with Cult Montreal, The Bull Calf Review, Scrivener Creative Review, and The Senior Times. As a proofreader and editor, I handle a range of different clients in the genres of both nonfiction and fiction, offering competitive rates.

With Archaeologies of the Weird, I turned my older blog, The Vinciolo Journal, in a slightly new direction. A rebranding was long overdue and you can see the results before you : a cleaner look and a new commitment to quality content. After my mandate as Managing Editor of Scrivener Creative Review wrapped up, I decided it was time to begin working on my blog again. You can still access all of the old blog’s content.

I began Archaeologies of the Weird with a series of weekly reflections on the early stories in Ann and Jeff VanderMeer’s anthology The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories. My original goal was to review all 110 stories, covering more than a hundred years of weird fiction writing, but this turned out to be too ambitious. I hope to update this regularly on a miscellany of different topics.

One of the things that I hope to do more with Archaeologies of the Weird is explore the genre of archaeological adventures/thrillers, particularly when it has a weird fiction twist. I will post reviews and think pieces about everything from H. Rider Haggard’s She to the Uncharted games and the Jade Ilhara series of YA novels. Meanwhile, I will be working on my own in-progress archaeological thriller novel, which I hope will benefit from the insights I garner from writing about what’s already out there.
