Recently the research team at Maroonbeard.com came across this Ancient Persian Zombie Mural and we just had to share it! This proves once again that Zombies have a far-reaching and timeless presence in the history of civilization.

My latest children’s book is now available for download!
I have added another short Children’s Book to my collection, it’s called ‘There’s A Puppy In My Tummy” and it is probably my cutesiest and least insane book to date. It’s directed to ages 0-4, if I were actually a “real” children’s book author I would print it as a board book.
This week it’s available as a FREE DOWNLOAD on amazon!
Just click the ad to be directed to the amazon listing!

Happy Pioneer Day!
My third and final tribute for Pioneer Day is a poster of my Great ++++ Grandfather Lewis Barney. Lewis Barney was kind of like the Forest Gump of early Mormon History, in the sense that he seemed to be present at most famous Mormon events. He knew Joseph Smith and the early church leaders personally and was one of the members of the first wagon train to arrive in Salt Lake City with Brigham Young. Not only was he a member of the original party but he may have been the first man in the Salt Lake Valley. Here is a short excerpt from his journal:“At the mouth of the Canyon it became very rocky, which delayed the camp one day. I wishing to see the Great Salt Lake Valley worked my way down the creek through the brush, and entered the Valley. I went on a little raise of ground, cast my eyes over the valley, and saw the Great Salt Lake glistening in the distance. I then returned to camp.”
Another fun fact about Lewis Barney is that apparently he and Porter Rockwell had a small rivalry and Porter didn’t like him much. Here’s a great article from the Salt Lake Tribune recounting their relationship:

I put a few of these flyers up around Baltimore today to promote the Picklas Kickstarter project. If you’re interested in helping me get some buzz going feel free to print some off and post them on some bulletin boards!
