About

Daedalus Howell

“My work is the organic sugar substitute that helps the meds go down.”

I’m your basic, artsy multihyphenate, working artsy-type born under the sign of X. I’ve had breaks, been broke and back again, and brake for solid storytelling, good branding, and better wine.

I began my career in media as a paperboy and eventually grew into a newspaperman. I have written for various national and regional publications, clocked hundreds of bylines, and since 2019, I’ve been the editor of the North Bay Bohemian and Pacific Sun (and a shit ton of magazines).

I’m the author of Quantum Deadline (a “…noirish, sci-fi-lite detective story with a heap of self-parody”) and an occasional conceptual artist. I wrote and directed the sci-fi artsploitation feature film Pill Head (“…Satirically off-the-wall…”). My new feature, Werewolf Serenade, claws its way to a screen near you in 2024.

I believe the creative industrial complex has its perks, that art is sexy, madness can be genius and, in a market tempest tossed by taste, any of us, at any moment, could be heroes.

This is our world, culture serf. Let’s beautify it — word by word, frame by frame.
