In Memoriam

Neil Illing (2017). A thoughtful, kind, enthusiastic fiendling with whom I shared many emails, many direct messages, and many laughs. I shall miss you, sir. #fuckCancer

  1. I have enjoyed listening to The Black. Your narration is great and your writing style is intelligent, interesting, and can be described in one word – polished. I will continue to listen and will now make a donation.

    P.S. I too am a Whiskey drinker.

  2. I am one of the offspring of Garaaga: I dare you to try to kill me!! Keep up the good work and smart-ass comments, Mr. Cooley.

  3. As a Fiendling Evangelist, I will be bringing people into your graveyard. Sassy Staci is the first. There will be more.

  4. I am so jealous of all of you in Derelict. I have to wait till TB Evolution to get Cooleyed, though I have no doubt that the wait will be worth it.

  5. My friend (whose name I shall not name here) was rather upset that I wanted her in your graveyard. Perhaps she misunderstood, or I was not clear enough, or maybe both. Regardless, please remove her from TB4. It is NOT necessary to refund the extra patreon dollar. I want to help all of us get closer to making you record those Garaaga stories.

  6. I’m planning to pledge onece I at least listen to at least some of your work. I agree it’s unbelievable that people expect to enjoy your gift and not think about you. I am on SSI and only get $800.00 a month but I’ve only required to pay under $200.00 in rent. So if I can help I don’t understand. I feel so lucky to be able to enjoy all these wonderful podcasts. I really enjoy the series podcasts because I never want a good one to end plus its fun to have something to look forward to and the you feel they know you also. As you probably can tell I spend a lot of time alone and get very lonely. So thank you David

    1. Don’t worry about the money, mate. The podcast is here for people to find my work, sample it, or enjoy it as it is. Patreon is a luxury some folks can afford and others cannot. And I understand that which is why the podcast will always be free. Thank you for checking me out and thank you for your interest in my work. Go through the archives and hopefully you’ll find something to help get you through the days. Cheers.

  8. Ok, let me clear the air (yeah, the stench is real)
    I met Cooley LONG before he became this Killer of fans.

    That being said…

    I look forward to my untimely death in every story, even though my death scene is a flashback/backstory/just because he can. I am honored to call this RAGING lunatic my friend and my brother.


    yeah, I know, that ain’t happening

    1. I wrote a short story. In one scene, a news reporter named Paul Cooley gets impaled by a transmission antenna falling off a collapsing building. I felt it was only fair to return the favor.
