Down the Dark Path Books, Paintings, and delicious darkness from J Edward Neill

Tessera Guild Blog

I blog too much. It’s true. In tallying up the amount of articles I’ve penned for various websites, the total is enough to fill the pages of four novels. No, I’m not kidding.

Although you’ll find tons of content here on Down the Dark Path, this isn’t my primary home.  Whenever I’m not painting or writing sci-fi, fantasy, and philosophy, I’m the lead contributor at Tessera Guild.

Tessera is the bizniz. We have hundreds and hundreds of articles. Some are written by me, and others by a host of artists, movie-makers, comic book creators, et cetera. It’s stuffed to its HTML gills with blogs on art, writing, video games, movies, and most importantly, life. Most weeks, we publish between 5-7 articles. It’s worth your time to give it a visit.

Here’s just a few of my favorite Guild articles.

Head on over to the Guild. There’s something for everyone. I promise you’ll have a good time surfing.

Oh, and if you’re looking to become a high quality full or part-time contributor to Tessera Guild and you like to write about art/books/games/life, look me up at Twitter, FacebookGoodreads, or via email. We’ll talk.

Catch you later,
