Review Via Telescope

September 4, 2014

Readers of The Rift might remember the appearance at crucial moments of an Astroscan telescope, which featured in a number of different plot elements.  I made full use of its unconventional appearance, its general durability, and its more-than-passing resemblance to a trench mortar. I am therefore delighted to note that Norman Sperling, the co-creator of […]

What Should I Be Watching?

August 29, 2014

So I’m looking for new stuff to watch on TV.  I don’t spend a lot of time in front of the set, and I usually watch (1) when I’m running on the elliptical trainer, and (2) just before bedtime.  So I’m lookin’ for high quality stuff. I’ve seen The Wire, Dexter, Weeds, the Sopranos, Treme, White […]

Tony and Dr. Sun

August 28, 2014

So I’ve been making the trek up to Santa Fe to view the offerings at the Santa Fe Opera.  Which wasn’t all opera, by any means, though Doctor Sun Yat-sen is.  This is a new opera, sung in classical Mandarin, modern Mandarin, and Cantonese, by Chinese-born composer Huang Ruo, with libretto by Candace Mui-ngam Chong, co-creator of […]

Prehistoric Selfie

August 22, 2014

It’s something called Throwback Thursday.  So here’s an old photo, from when I was an angel or something.  I think I’m about eighteen or nineteen. I still have the blue velvet shirt, if the moths haven’t got it.

Episode One

August 21, 2014

So Hardwired, Episode One is now available at Amazon, Kobo, Smashwords, and iBooks.  There’s been a technical problem with Barnes & Noble, but it should be resolved shortly. Yes, I’m serializing a novel that’s already complete and available! Why would I do this, you ask?  Before I get into that, let me point out that it’s FREE. […]

August 19, 2014

Here you see that Kobo has declared that my story “Wall, Stone, Craft” is #1 in Historical Fiction! You know what else is #1?  The Macedonian and Cat Island, both by me. As you see, Implied Spaces is #1 in “Sci Fi” & Fantasy! You know what else is #1 in SF&F?  My story “Video Star.”  My novella […]

Slinging

August 17, 2014

Went to see Louisiana guitar-slinger Sonny Landreth the other day.  He played at the zoo band shell, and probably kept the lions and zebras up past their bedtime. One of the annoying things about seeing guitar wizards is that they invariably attract a crowd of guys in front of the stage who just stand there […]
