Daedalus Howell


I’m your basic, artsy multihyphenate born under the sign of X. I’ve had breaks, been broke and back again, and I 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, 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. 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 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. Let’s beautify it — word by word, frame by frame.
