Flying Into Los Angeleeez

October 30, 2019

I’m off to L.A. for the World Fantasy Convention. I’m taking it easy, I’m not doing signings or other programming. If you want something signed, you’ll have to track me down, but I won’t be hard to find.

Me an’ Bogart an’ Them

October 27, 2019

It’s been a long autumn, what with hip replacement and all the deadline pressure and stuff, and my birthday is happening around now, and so I decided I deserved a really nice birthday present.   Maybe something I’ve always wanted. It so happens that I’ve wanted a Porsche since I was about eight, and ever […]

Making Scoville Proud

October 25, 2019

Tonight’s culinary odyssey was courtesy of our hunter friend Kyle, who laid some ground venison on us.  We could have made venison burgers, I suppose, but I decided to be a little more adventurous and make venison chili.  Kathy had bought a ton of freshly-roasted green chile back in August, and this seemed another chance […]

Reviews Too Late: Money Heist

October 24, 2019

While recovering from surgery I binged, mainly continuing my exploration of Spanish TV with Money Heist (Casa de Papel, “House of Paper”)  I do like an intricate caper, as my Maijstral books demonstrate, and this is probably the longest caper ever filmed, something like sixteen hours of television originally split into two seasons.  (One crime over […]

No Break. Maybe Some Whisky.

October 20, 2019

I have finished Fleet Elements, which is either Praxis Book VII (according to me) or Praxis Book V (according to the publisher). Objectively, it’s Novel XXXIII. The text has been sent on to the Power What Is.  I am celebrating the completion by working on something else.  Some day I’ll take a break, but it won’t […]

Week Five

October 16, 2019

I think I’ve taken some pretty good pictures, but I’ve never been lucky when it comes to photographing my own pets.  Whenever any of our cats sees a strange object with a lens pointed at them, they tend to vanish over the horizon before I can snap the shutter. Fortunately our ragdoll Mocha was too […]

From the Coffee Shop

October 11, 2019

Xfiniti, my phone company, dug up my ground line the other day, I assume by accident. I suspect malevolence, however.  My ground line now consists of nothing but splices.  The phone company has cut my phone line so many times that I have to assume it’s deliberate.  I mean, why would a public utility repeatedly […]

Hobbling to the Finish

October 9, 2019

I’m trying to finish the next Praxis book, which I hope to do in the next few days, so I’m spending even less time here than usual. In the meantime feel free to enjoy this interview with LD Colter, 2018 Taos Toolbox graduate and author of While Gods Sleep. PS: I continue to improve four weeks […]

October 2, 2019

Behold a pair of eider ducks, possibly in the process of settling into a new home.  These were encountered just outside Reykjavik back in June. The female eider lines her nest with the down from her own breast, and this is collected for use in pillows or whatever.  The farmers do not, I am told, somehow […]
