Brad Oates is the author of ‘Edgar’s Worst Sunday’ and ‘Meaning Less‘.
Growing up in the small town of Mayerthorpe, Alberta, Canada, Brad developed a passion for literature at an early age. Many of his first memories involve being curled up on the couch with his parents and siblings as they read ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
Brad now lives in Edmonton, Alberta, with his dog, Bogney. He is a senior member of the Edmonton Writer’s Group, and enjoys writing at the the local Whyte Ave bars when he finds the time.
On his blog, www.BradOHInc.com , he enjoys writing in a wide variety of genres, and covers numerous topics. In general, he finds himself leaning towards a darkly comedic, literary approach, and often dwells on the themes of human virtue, and self-deception.

Let’s start off with the (semi)weekly posts. Now, these posts, made most often each Sunday, are meant to be pretty straight-forward, and are even tagged under a variety of headings to allow a sense of the theme or topic right from the get-go. But that might be a little intellectually demanding for some of our less cerebral fans out there, so let’s just go ahead and outline the various post categories, and what exactly they are meant to represent:
(Note: You can click on the title of each category below to go straight to a list of all posts made in that category. This can also be done at any time via the little drop down menu directly to the right marked, ‘Post Categories’.)
‘Under the Green Desk Lamp’ is a regular feature here on Brad OH Inc. This category is the place for any sort of random musings to come off the reporting desks here at Brad OH Inc., and may cover such varied topics as philosophy, society, media, music, etc.

‘Project: FearNaught’ is a side-project by our esteemed guest writer, Jeremy Arthur. Jeremy’s purpose in the article of ‘Project FearNaught’ is simple—he wants to start ‘the conversation that changes the world’. It’s a pretty tall order we admit, and it must go without saying that his efforts hinge entirely on your participation and dialogue. As such, each article will include a direct link to the comments section. Please do feel free (and highly encouraged) to use that link to discuss the issues, share your own personal opinions, and help to grow the ideas beyond merely one man and a keyboard.
