It’s been a while since I updated the website. My apologies for folks who’ve been looking for more Wizard of Quippley comics.
The comic’s not dead, but I’m taking a break. I’ve been putting all my creative energy into brand new Silas Black short stories that will be available as e-books on Amazon and other storefronts!
The Strange Case of Cradle Hills
by Adam Casalino
Sometime in the late 90’s:
“Do you believe in aliens?”
“You know, aliens. Creatures from another planet?”
Silas Black lowered his newspaper. He looked at the small blonde girl with pigtails who was counting out his change. She stared at him with bright, unblinking eyes. It was creepy.
“I know what aliens are,” the man said.
“I saw this TV show where a man was abducted by aliens,” she said. “They took him aboard their ship. They… did things to him.”
Silas folded his paper and tucked it under his arm. “You watch too much TV, kid.”
“So, you don’t believe in aliens?”
“Don’t be ridiculous. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to see a man about a demon.”

A Paranormal Tale
by Adam Casalino
Silas Black didn’t like the woman very much. He thought it might have been her nose. No, it wasn’t that. It was her smile. She had a wry smile. It made her look smug. Silas didn’t like people who were smug. Some people called him smug. But they confused smugness with knowing stuff.
This woman knew stuff. Too much stuff.
People flocked from all over the city to see her. From the outer boroughs, even. She had started in a small tea shop. Now she appeared in an off-off Broadway theater. Soon, people from outside New York would be flying in to see this medium. As the city’s only paranormal detective, it bothered Silas.
It could hurt business.
