  • Thornwalker provides editorial services for periodicals, books, and websites, specializing in free-market libertarian materials.

    Thornwalker has no tolerance for misspellings, bad grammar, or incorrect usage in texts — especially in the texts of websites. We like to read sentences fueled by decisive verbs, sentences unafraid of pronouns, and sentences with accurate prepositions. Sentences vandalizing comprise and transpire are sentenced to corrective institutions, whence they emerge having paid their debt to society and prepared to live out their natural lives as productive citizens of the English-speaking world.

    We specialize in websites whose content is unencumbered by frills. Websites requiring intelligent clarity to reflect well on the businesses operating them need the love and attention Thornwalker will shower on them.

    We’ll even do a little advertising now and then:

    When the sleepy college town of Muscatatuck, Indiana, awakens to a brutal murder, an unlikely duo join forces to solve an unlikely crime. Detective Jackson Reed digs through conflicting evidence and contends with the town’s oddball residents. Meanwhile, Professor Peregrine Pribble deploys his natural nosiness — without really worrying whether he’s in the way.

    A Professor Pribble Mystery
    New author Sarah Hume is a daughter of Southern Indiana and has the ears, eyes, and voice to craft this story. She knows the depths and currents of the Ohio River country, and unforgettably brings the quirks of a small heartland campus to life.

  • Broken links are anathema to Thornwalker. We check all links on active websites we manage frequently so that no reader ever suffers the frustration of unproductive link-clicking. When the original link is lost, we search for suitable substitutes or note the loss in the text.

    In short, Thornwalker promises to be Annie Sullivan to your website’s Helen Keller.

    Some websites formerly managed, designed, or edited by Thornwalker are:

    Though the sites are no longer active, they have remained as archives on the Internet.

    Thornwalker.com is the home to a few political-commentary projects for which it serves as the “landlord”:

    Finally, Thornwalker maintains a watch on grammatical and word-usage Brambles and Thorns. The first entry (and so far the only entry) to be singled out for the infamy of membership is hone in. If you think that honing in on a problem gets you closer to a solution, you need to hone your language skills.
