I'm the author of this site: Kevin O'Kendley. I'm responsible for all original material, and other material, including that which is clearly designated/quoted as being written by other sources, writers, talents. I'm responsible for choosing all nonprofits, too.
Fortunately, Conor Finn O'Kendley is responsible for the technical reality of this site -- he is not responsible for its contents. Given that I've been denied email access for several months re: hacked passwords/changing passwords, without Conor I would have no access to this site at all, as I use his egress portal to carbuncle moon.

A carbuncle is a roiled mass of skin or a beautiful gem. The incredible gem is pictured in the logo below and at the bottom of the short story section...
Kevin O'Kendley is the owner of Carbuncle Moon, and the author of all original material -- cartoons, blogs, shorts, essays, articles -- on the website (there has been a very limited editorial input in some of my work). All quoted sources are noted. I am responsible for all posts. The only blogs not time-dated are those advertising nonprofits. All nonprofits are vetted, investigated, though after the summer of 2018 my vetting has lapsed: (6/1/21).
