“I Seen My Pretty Alice in Every Headlight. Alice, Alice Dallas.”

Watching a DVRecording of the Tod Browning silent classic, The Unholy Three, I found myself marveling at its opening shot of a side show fat lady chatting with a rube, and I found myself wondering (as I do every time), “Who is that lovely (if perspiration sheened) lady?” IMDB had the answer, of course: t’was famous side show attraction Alice Julian, a.k.a. Alice from Dallas in her only credited movie appearance.

Neldra C. Returns

I'm a coupla weeks late in mentioning this (I was having difficulty with Blogger and a Google app not quite speaking to each other), but I need to note here that a new piece of fanta-sizer fiction has been posted on Dimensions's online website. It's a sequel to my pulpish mystical WG fantasy "Astral Thief," entitled not too surprisingly "Astral Thief II." Check it out if you haven't had a chance to yet . . .

Reality Intrudes Once Again

Doing a tour of fanta-sizer friendly sites, I learned this weekend that Susanne Eman, the Arizona woman who at one point was working to become the fattest woman on record (and who inspired a piece of a recent Fat Magic story), has done an about face and is now engaged in a weight loss regimen. With no real details about the reasons behind her decision, I won't criticize what is, after all, a personal lifestyle choice. But a wicked part of me still can't help wondering what might've been.

Another Frippin' "Fat Magic" Story, You Say?

For the Spring (and posted on Tax Day), I've posted a fresh "Fat Magic" story, "The Therapy Session," on the Dimensions Online site. The piece is pretty short and to the point, and, as usual, I had a great time writing it. . .

Grand in Casa Grande

For those who might've noticed, my latest piece of fiction contains a passing reference to SSBBW Arizona native Susanne Eman, who reportedly is working toward becoming the fattest woman on record. Thought about Miz E. more than once when I was writing about my heroine Sylvie's transformaton . . .

Ye Olde Bookstore

Posted a new story for the holidays on the Dimensions online site, "The Bookstore," a tale that's meant to fit into the "Fat Magic" universe. Check it out if you're at all into fantasies about magical gain (and, if you're not, how'd you find your way here?)

Wakey, Wakey . . .

A new "Fat Magic" story has been posted on the Dimensions Online site this Labor Day Weekend: "Waking Moments." It's a fantasy that takes the Lew Baird class-based WG transformation story and puts a more uplifting spin on it. Some readers have been turned off by the somewhat darker tone of the Baird tales (as I've noted more than once, he's Richard Bachman to my Stephen King), and this is my attempt at looking through this material through a more positive lens. I'm somewhat satisfied with the results, but I can't help wondering what Lew'd think . . .

Thanksgiving Memories

This Thanksgiving I found myself recalling my one WG story with a turkey day theme, so I hit the "Fat Magic" site and reread "Lady Bountiful" to see how it held up for the holiday. Not a bad little erotic fanta-sizer romance, I ultimately decided -- if a bit unsafe for family viewing.

More Magickal Abundance

Must be close to the holidays ‘coz a new “Fat Magic” has just popped up on the Dimensions Online: “Belle, Book and Kindle.” It’s another of those tales connected to the publisher of my favorite arcane text (the last in this series was the comic-related “Fat Manga”), though it hopefully works as a stand-alone piece. In any event, I got a charge out of putting it together.

A Smallish Plug

For the record, Lew Baird (or at least someone playing him in a comic romantic novel!) has a cameo appearance in Becky Fox & Bill Sherman's Measure by Measure.

New Fat Magic Tale

The fifth (and probably final) “Lew Baird” tale has been posted on the Dimensions website this week. Like the previous entries, it’s a fantasy of magical weight gain, altered realities and class transformation. Unlike most of the FM tales that appear under my name, the Baird stories have a little bit of an edge to 'em: nothing too dark unlike some of the WG fantasies you can find on the web, but not as celebratory as I try to be in my own tales. Think of Lew as Richard Bachman to my Stephen King, then. In any event, "Sandra/Sandy" is online for your entertainment.

Facebook III

Here's another Facebook plus-size postcard photo album, this time devoted to E.L. White.

More Facebookery

Another Facebook photo album of plus-sized postcards has been posted for your edification, this 'un devoted to Walter Wellman, master of the zaftig cutey-pie.


Page Returns

For the pre-holiday weekend, I posted one of the last Wilson Barbers tales, "Lightweight," to see print in magazine form. It's an Adipost Zone s-f adventure featuring my detective hero Page Briant and, unlike all the other entries in the series, it's a fairly straightforward action tale, if you can believe that. Not a weight gain sequence to be found in this 'un, though the story is written as a set-up to our hero's actual enhancement. One of these days, I've got to write that follow-up . . .


Facebooking It

Bill Sherman, co-author of the plus-sized soap Measure by Measure, has begun the job of moving many of the postcards from my old Geocities page onto Facebook. This first album is devoted to Arthur Thiele, naturally, so if you'd like a look, why not click here?

". . .We're Gonna Get Married."

Another Thiele wedding moment:


"Goin' to the Chapel and . . . "

Looks like this Thiele BBW is indulging in some cradle robbing, doesn't it?


On the Beach II

Here's yet another amazing Arthur Thiele summer holiday card. Who sez that fat women aren't athletic?


On the Beach

Here's a second Arthur Thiele classic, featuring two plus-sized bathing beauties.

On the Pier

My old Geocities site devoted to fat themed postcards has bitten the dust, so until I find the time to put together a new set of pages devoted to 'em, I've decided to start posting some of my favorite cards here. First up, is an item by the great Belgium artist Arthur Thiele:
