The Silver Thread begins with a train heading South through Copper Canyon, traveling free with no destination as you’re transported deep within Mexican interior and high up into the mountains of Oaxaca.

After a few strange twists of fate, the author finds himself collapsing in a thatch hut while participating in an ancient Mazatecan indian mushroom ceremony. As the indigenous hosts try to get his heart beating again, experience a most incredible and transcendent journey beyond. (Based on a true story)

This is the first chapter of a true story I recorded in the desert of San Luis Potosi, Mexico during the Summer of 2014.

I’m using the recording to base a new screenplay I’m working on. The story is called “The Silver Thread” and this first chapter is called “Copper Canyon”.

This will be available until I get all the chapters completed and compiled into an audio book that will be available for sale. :)

This is a brand new 12x18 Double-Sided Poster Offering. The printing I’ve had from this company has been consistently stellar for several years.

This is a regular poster though. It’s not the same archival/museum quality printing I normally sell to fans and collections. But, it is acid-free and VERY affordable. I’m guessing this would look beautiful framed for many years.

There’s a second image printed on the back that you can see by viewing the preview. Magcloud prints a small scan graphic very small on the bottom right of the back image. 

Not sure it I will continue these offerings or where the pricing will eventually be, but for now, you’re basically getting two 12x18 prints for only $10 each. Get’m while they’re HOT!!! :)

Membrane update Pop-Pop-Pop and Boom!

Hi,

Been down to Mexico again, but this time I was working on a new screenplay based on a true story that happened to me about 14 years ago. 

Got attacked and punched in the face on the first night, and there was some shooting at the border and some killings just prior to my arriving in the San Luis Potosi area… but overall it was an extremely productive trip.

I hitched a ride in the desert and while sitting with my ass flat in a pickup truck bed, the driver hit a speed bump at high speed which bruised my tailbone… so I still can’t sit for long and need to complete the last 15-20 pages… but I’m almost finished and got great contacts, location images, and location video clips.

I also chronicled the process, personal notes and observations of the trip here: http://storify.com/skiphunt/chupacabra-1

CHUPACABRA: A True Story | Audiobook Sample Teaser Chapter ONE: Ladies Bar

Chupacabra Cover

"When one man’s singular obsession leads him to the brink of death."

There’s a true tale I’ve been telling for over 13 years now. My obsession with writing down a screenplay in Mexico very nearly cost me my life. I tell the story most often as a warning to others, but the response I most frequently get is that my true story may be better than what I was writing at the time. The last person I told this story to late at night, out in the desert of the Wirikuta region of Mexico was an Argentinian juggler. We didn’t particularly hit it off, but we both found ourselves killing time late at night in the middle of a full-moon night and too wired to sleep.  

This fellow was game for listening first to my entire true tale of obsession and then the entire story I was trying to write at the time. His assessment was that the true story was his preference. He very much loved both, but he believed the true story actually happened exactly as I told it, and this gave it more appeal.

I decided to finally record this story that I’ve told for so many years by desert camp fires, jungle treks, and caffeine-fueled late-night cafe chats. I’m not certain what I’m going to do with it, but I broke it down into chapter notes in pieces that I felt I could get through a recording in one take. It was recorded in the same room I used in the desert 13 years ago.

"This is an absolutely incredible, riveting story! I do agree that THIS is the story that should be the screenplay!" ~ E. Davie
"I could visualize the scene of the ‘Ladie’s Bar’ through a fish eye lens sort of in the style of Twin Peaks. Truly an odd trip with some weird encounters." ~ Y. Buckley
