It's been almost 9 months, so I decided I should probably post and update things for anyone who might care.

I'm still contributing the occasional review for RevSF, SFSite, Locus Online, and The Austin Chronicle.

I've contributed essays to Benbella's Smart Pop books on Farscape and King Kong. The Farscape piece "Flautence, Food, and Fornication" discusses many of the fetid biological aspects of the show. In typical Klaw fashion, I was a 1/3 of the way through the essay before I ever mentioned Farscape.

The Kong piece "Thirty-three" is about the autobiographical aspects of the classic film. Fellow ape nut/scholar Mark Finn remarked on the esoteric info in my essay. What exactly does 33 have to do with Kong anyway?

Farscape Forever is currently available and I believe King Kong Is Back! will be out in October.

My agent has very little luck selling Ape Confidential: A Pop Culture History of the Ape. Plans are to try for a little longer then shelve it until ater Peter Jackson's Kong comes out.

I'm currently researching my next project The Monarch of Tease, the first book length biography of legendary fetish photographer Irving Klaw. Klaw was among the first to photograph Betty Page and is responsible for a good chunk of her fame. But he was so much more than that. Literally, the country's views on pornography, socially and as a business, changed because of this man.

I'll try to check in more often. Hope everyone is well out there.

Any relation between you and Irving? Glad to see you back!

Irving was my grandfather. He died roughly 16 months before I was born.
