Welcome, You Weirdos.
Can you believe it? I have my own website, and you’re on it. I don’t understand how this happened, either.
It’s good to see you today.

You can also buy t-shirts, hats, mugs, notebooks & more at our official Redbubble store here.
Now: here’s what’s next.
No more teasing. Let’s talk about the future: you and me, right here, right now.
Our brand new Kickstarter, Sleeping Kitty Stretches, starts today.
So what does that mean?
When a cat sleeps, it dreams; when it wakes up to get what it wants, it stretches.
Playing our cards right, this opportunity means we’re going to expand in ways that are both a natural evolution and hopefully a little unexpected.
The base goal is to publish two graphic novels: Brushfire: Wave 2 in July 2023, and Jojo’s Time Machine in 2024.
This is something I have done before.
But for the first time ever, we — yes, we — have stretch goals that could have fantastic and far-reaching consequences.
I want to create an Animation + Audio division of Sleeping Kitty Productions. If enough people invest, we’ll be able to acquire hardware and produce one, two, or three animated short films, and one, two, or three audiobooks, based on my previous work (including Them, which I’ll be talking about all month!).
This is what I want to do, and these are the things friends and fans have asked me for for years. We can make it happen together. You and me.
All the details (there are so many details!) are at our Kickstarter:
The video I produced might be my favorite ever. There’s a ton of photos and original art there, too.
Oh — who is this “we”? My good friend Steven Starks will be joining me in this endeavor, and he has a whole lot more to say on our page.
He and I just want to create art — the grand and intimate, emotional and funny kind — and we’re finally making the decision and taking the plunge to do a big project together. I am terrified and excited and mostly terrified but gosh, am I excited.
I hope you’ll join us.
As always, always, always — all my love.
P.S. Like, love, and share if this is something you care about, too! Even (or especially) if your financial support isn’t a viable option, which I totally understand. You do what’s right for you. I support that above all.

“This feels like the last dream.”
Welcome to the last dream.
The entire universe has fallen asleep, and it is up to vivid dreamer Liam to find out who has done this and why. He will need the help of anyone he can find inside the dream to survive.
In Dennis Vogen’s tenth book, he celebrates ten years of his publishing career by creating a sequel to all his work, real and imagined. He does so by remembering, revisiting, and reintroducing a lifetime of characters you know, a few you don’t, and by telling a story you will never forget.
You can get A Dream of Tin & Eternity in hardcover, paperback & digital @ Amazon NOW! Catch up with Dennis’ work at Amazon and the Sleeping Kitty Productions Shop.
I want to thank everyone who came to any (or all!) of the dates on my Fall Tour 2022. I was able to do over a full week’s worth of appearances this season, and I met (or reunited with) hundreds of you delightful people.
Every event was a success in so many ways, and that’s because you showed up and have been so supportive. Whether you just discovered my work or fully engaged with me in it, I have nothing but the best feelings from our time together. Thank you so much.
All my love. I hope you hang in there and have a wonderful rest of your year. Always feel free to reach out if you need to.
