The thrilling conclusion to Part 1 of the clash between the lifelong rivals, Guy Fieri and Papa John, from my NYT Best Selling novel from my critically acclaimed YA fiction series, available on Amazon or wherever books are sold.

Another clash of metal on metal. The heat where the peel and the spatula hit ignited a spray of oil in the air in a fat arc of flame. John swung his peel with inhuman speed, Guy struggled to find his bearings. Even when he could dodge the peel, the flying debris might hit his eyes. Clang. Clang. CLANG. with each…


The second to last chapter of my best selling novel in my critically acclaimed Guy Fieri YA fiction universe, “The Battle for Flavortown”

“Of course,” Guy thought to himself. “There was only one place this was ever going to end.” Kitchen Stadium loomed on the horizon as he tore down the battered road on his motorcycle. Already he could smell the oil wafting from the battlefield. Papa John was doing something profane.

His motorcycle gave out a short walk from the entrance. He let it lie there in the road. He touched the flames on the gas tank, like the…


As the demands on the Amazon workforce have grown over the months, the company has pushed the hours and efficiency of its employees to new heights. As always, Amazon is looking to technology to break the limits of what a workforce and a corporation can do.

Neural Link Solution

Researchers at Amazon discovered that most of what the company needs from its many laborers is robotic motion with a minimal amount of computation by the laborer’s human mind. While attaching a tablet to the laborer that told them where to be and what to do at every moment felt oppressive and got decent…

Zelda and Peach left the locker room after a few games of tennis that had pushed them both to their limits. They had showered and had the “just worked out” feeling in their limbs but clean clothes and no more sweat and it was that buzz that fit people talk about.

“Let’s get something to eat!” said Peach, and as she said it Zelda realized she was famished. She clasped her hands and nodded under her hoodie. Peach flapped her hand in the air to her driver. “YOOOOHOOOO!” and blew him a kiss. The man hopped in place and pulled…


In the following story all pokemon language has been translated to English, thank you Goldeen for your work on this! Hire him for all your translating work he’s great!

Jigglypuff looked down at the field, but she still couldn’t see which one it was. She looked left and right at the glowing silhouettes of Pikachu and Incineroar. Pikachu looked anxious, but he was holding it together. Incineroar was calm, loosening his joints. And there past Incineroar was Pokemon Trainer, fiddling with his pokeballs. It made Jigglypuff sick.

Suddenly the arena swept into view. Of course. Pokemon Stadium. …


Link walked over to the table where Luigi was already drinking his black coffee. Luigi only drank a cappuccino on the weekend as a treat. All week long it was black coffee, and he never made a point of it to anyone.

“So how’s it been, Luigi?” Link had a cup of hot water that he was crushing herbs into. It struck Luigi that he had never heard Link’s voice. Link was young in the face but had the voice of a man, there was no mistaking.

“It’sa been agood!” said Luigi. “An ahow abouta’ you? How isa’Hyrule?”

Link nodded…


Over the next few months Bowser was pretty pleasantly satisfied. He tried to eat better, drink more water. He did lose a few pounds. He caught up with DK every few weeks, and Ganondorf, too (who was now over 200k followers), but he kept stuff with the pseudo bros on text. DK had suggested to him that maybe he just needed a new challenge for challenge’s sake. Ganondorf, of course, liked that idea. The Nintendo Company was always down for him to contract with them, they always had been. He wrote to his contact there and told them he was…


Bowser slept off most the day after the outing with the Pseudo Bros. He woke up once or twice and saw a text from Wario that said “there was pcp in that joint look out”. There were a lot of notifications from Instagram and Twitter but Bowser just couldn’t manage to read them until he had recovered more.

The next day he had some coffee and finally took a look at his notifications. Someone near the gas station had taken some video of Bowser and posted it. Bowser searched the postings and comments to see if anyone was making Bowsette…


For almost a month, Bowser followed along with Ganondorf’s at-home work out regimen. Ganondorf had offered it to him free, it helped his algorithm and he needed the feedback for opening the classes up to a wider audience. Ganondorf had followed up with Bowser about making a vision board and a plan for success, but Bowser always seemed to have something that he had to do when Ganondorf tried to schedule, and eventually Ganondorf gracefully stopped calling so much.

Bowser had been having dreams. Nightmares. He was being haunted, not by Mario or Luigi. He was seeing visions of his…
