Cold World Goes Round

June 21st, 2022 Better than any kind of formal review, people are starting to tell me how they feel, and the thoughts they’ve been thinking, since reading Cold World, and the conversation so far has been outstanding. Thank you so much to those of you who have visited Earth two hundred years from now, enjoyedContinue reading “Cold World Goes Round”

Building an Afterlife

June 4th, 2022 I’m writing this while my human blood is still mostly replaced with coffee, so I hope it’s coherent. A giant hug and a supermassive thank you to the kind souls who came out to support me today; I don’t know what I did in dreams or a previous life to get youContinue reading “Building an Afterlife”

Cold World is Here

June 2nd, 2022 Today is the day. I hope you’ll join me in giving a warm welcome to my eighth book, and my first full-length novel, Cold World. It is now officially for sale on Amazon as an ebook, paperback, and hardcover, and as a signed paperback on dennisvogen.com. I want to tell you everythingContinue reading “Cold World is Here”

We Are Not Shields

May 25th, 2022 Let’s give all the children guns. The people who have guns, who love guns, who make money off guns, are absolutely unwilling to do anything about guns, so the only solution I can think of is arming each and every child who has to enter a school building. If you’re thinking, “That’sContinue reading “We Are Not Shields”

Star Wars Day 2022

May 4th, 2022 Happy Star Wars Day. I have written at length about my love for that galaxy far, far away several times (even recently, as I was going through my first viewing of the Clone Wars television series), so I’ll keep it light (side) today. Cold World is a love letter to many things.Continue reading “Star Wars Day 2022”

a small word

March 23rd, 2022 Last night, I got to take part in a really special interview/conversation (hopefully I can share details soon!). The fun part of interviews is that it doesn’t matter how much you prepare; you don’t know what someone is going to ask you, and you never know what you’re going to say untilContinue reading “a small word”

Everything Just Is

February 25th, 2022 There are bitter things in this world that we’d like to think have lost their taste. We are humans, look at how far we’ve come, a society that believes that we are post-what-we-used-to-be. See how we have evolved and that history has been written, the future not a reflection but a brandContinue reading “Everything Just Is”

Pathways To Bliss

February 22nd, 2022 A cliché usually becomes a cliché for a reason, and that reason is usually because it’s true. Besides watching his interviews and studying the examples of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, I hadn’t dug too deep into Joseph Campbell’s catalog. Campbell was what everyone read. Lucas used Campbell to create StarContinue reading “Pathways To Bliss”

Bottomless Refills

February 11, 2022 I’m on empty. This emptiness is nothing new. Regular readers (hi, there!) will know that I’m the type who believes in using whatever tools work. It’s why I’m always trying to understand others, especially those who are not the same as me. Feeling empty, as least from a Western standpoint, is widelyContinue reading “Bottomless Refills”

What if God was (not) one of us?

January 23rd, 2022 I wrote a little last week about this book, “God Is Not One,” by Stephen Prothero, and now that I’m finished I could not recommend it more. Learning about all the things the world believes in makes you believe in the world more. The book is both expansive and intimate, covering theContinue reading “What if God was (not) one of us?”
