Hey Everyone!  I’m back from my yearlong academic sabbatical in Michigan and I’m working with the Dark Winter Nights team to set up our next big live show!  While I was away I achieved my dream of buying a DeLorean sports car and shot a documentary about driving it all the way back to Alaska.  You can find a link to the film’s website at!

We need stories for our next live event!  If you’ve got one, or know someone who does, submit it now!  Thanks!
