The Optimist’s Umbrella is the home for the creative works of William Brust, alias “the Conq.” I’m a writer from Atlanta, Georgia in the United States. In addition to writing, I can also cook a mean omelet and know how to change a tire.

On this site, you will find the continuing adventures of Bubblegum-Man and In His Spare Time.


You can tweet me @conqcomix (I’m so lonely!) or @10000ce (history comes alive!)
We update sometimes!
