It’s official: Homunculus Awareness Day is now a valid holiday and will be celebrated on November 11. Eleven is my number and good things come of it.

After publishing Gutter Ball: A Collection of Short Stories, in which The Wild-Ass Series appears, I realized how few people are familiar with homunculi.

So, I’ve decided to do something about it!

Having an actual holiday will be useful in future “Wild-Ass Series” stories, as well as lend a bit of credibility (sort of) to them.

Below is a picture of a homunculus.

Details on how to celebrate are forthcoming.


Don’t forget to mark your calendars!
