Daedalus Howell | Writer-filmmaker-journalist.
The creative industrial complex has its perks. Art is sexy, madness is genius, and — in a market tempest tossed by taste, any of us, at any moment, could be heroes. This is our world, culture serf… And this is what I write about.
Who am I? Your basic multihyphenate born under the sign of X. I’ve had breaks, been broke, and I brake for solid storytelling, good branding, and better wine. I began my career in letters as a paperboy but eventually grew into a newspaperman. I have written for various national and regional publications, clocked hundreds of bylines, and, since 2019, I’ve worked as the editor of the North Bay Bohemian and Pacific Sun, the longest-running alt-weekly on the planet.
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. My first feature film is the sci-fi artsploitation extravaganza Pill Head (“…Satirically off-the-wall…”), and my new feature, Wolf Stories, claws its way to a screen near you in 2024.
