About John Blandly

An experimental artist, actor, filmmaker and writer, John Blandly depends on the kindness of strangers. He supports everyone who is on a peaceful mission, and encourages everyone to be optimistic and to keep trying. Every tiny success is an endorsement. If you try ten things, and one works out--it's a plus. That's his thinking. Obviously, he's no math professor.

Several years ago Blandly started writing screenplays. Suddenly it seemed like a book was completed when it got to 100 pages. He put in a lot of dialogue and quick cuts, as if you were watching a fast-paced movie. So, consider yourself lucky that you have been spared a lot of narrative.

In his spare time, Blandly does nothing, since he doesn't have any.

Blandly's massive corporate front office would like to say thank you to everyone who has bought copies of his books. Other than a purchase, there is little in the way of feedback, so, when he is aware that a book is appreciated enough to buy, he is very grateful.

It is said that a prophet is not without honor except in his home town. Blandly has said, based on the sales of his books: Looks like my home town is--THE WORLD.

The young adult novelette, The Volunteers, is based on a number of true stories, or more accurately, harrowing experiences. It was originally published in a print edition in Studio (Australia). Blandly loves Australia and hopes some day to visit there. South America too. Finn was first published in a print version in Japanese and English in The Abiko Annual.

Love stories--that's what Blandly likes in a book or a movie. Some love stories here are Kiss Me, I'm Irish, Leap Year, Robin d'Hood, Ace It, Girlfriends Lost, and The Volunteers. There are others.

Blandly resides in the wilderness of the New York frontier.
Here are some links to navigate with him!

Girlfriends Lost is completely fictional--we wish!
We do not know how to explain it right now except to say, Caesar used to write about himself in the third person, but he had far better adventures.
So, enjoy reading "The Death of John Blandly, Continued," included in this novella, and if you can figure it out, let us know, at

The drove me nuts. Did not finish it. Dreary and had lost me by the 3 or 4th page.

Review by: B. Sting on April 05, 2017 :
A literary fiction novelette with a slight magic realism vibe. Very much in the humor category. Funny. Recommended.

Stephen King may have written the definitive "fan" book, but this novelette is just as good. A light literary jaunt. Recommended.
