Super. Liminal.

July 1, 2016

I’m still slogging through the final pieces of the book, trying to mop up the subplots in something resembling an organized manner. But you don’t have to wait for my new work to be published, you can read something by me right now in Lightspeed Magazine! Admittedly “Surfacing” is a novella that’s decades old, and that […]

I’m fully engaged in trying to finish a novel, while also preparing for this year’s Taos Toolbox, so I’ve not been posting much here. I recently came across a quote from Vladimir Nabokov: “In a first-rate work of fiction the real clash is not between the characters but between the author and the world.” I’m […]

That Seems to Have Worked Out Well

June 27, 2016

My new sale has put Voice of the Whirlwind at #1 for SF at Kobo, and landed me on Amazon’s best-seller list.  Which is not bad for a thirty-year-old book. Should you desire a copy for your ownself, feel free to click the link to Amazon, Google, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Kobo.

WRX– First Impressions

June 24, 2016

Britain didn’t merely shoot itself in the foot, but managed somehow to slice off both legs below the knee.  At least it will be cheap to visit there in the future, if I can avoid being eaten by the starving cave dwellers lurking in the cellars of the once-great metropoleis. But anyway I want to […]

Return of the Whirlwind

June 22, 2016

The recently-ended promotion of Hardwired turned out to be the best ever, so I’d like to thank those of you who clicked the buy button. On the theory that one should reinforce success, I’m hoping to repeat or even top Hardwired’s sales with a 99-cent sale on Voice of the Whirlwind. You may find VotW at Amazon, Google, Smashwords, […]

So I was making the black roux gumbo of Chef Francoise le Vison, and when I make the roux there’s enough smoke to set off every fire alarm within a hundred yards.  But this time the alarm for the whole lodge went off, and the whole building was evacuated except for maybe half a dozen […]

Dueling Hams

June 13, 2016

Does anyone remember the TV series “Slings and Arrows,” which opens with the theater manager being run over by a truck full of hams? That’s probably how Tim Minchin feels in this tribute to the Bard, which features a rather formidable cast. This one’s been around for a while, but it hasn’t been available in […]

How Much Work Could a Workshop Shop if a Workshop Could Shop Work?

June 13, 2016

I’m up a mountain in northern New Mexico, at the Rio Hondo Workshop.  We’re in a  beautiful valley of the Sangre de Cristos, so what did I do?  Hike in the beautiful mountain wilderness?  Go bird-watching?  Get a workout on the ol’ mountain bike? Nope, I spent the day cooking a meal for twelve people. […]

The Scum Also Rises

June 7, 2016

It’s been a couple months since we’ve heard from the Panama Papers, the 11.5 million documents extracted from the Panamanian law firm of Mossack Fonseca, and detailing the financial shenanigans of the rich, famous, and connected. After various revelations about Putin’s clique, David Cameron’s father, Li Xinping’s relatives, the prime ministers of Pakistan and Iceland, […]
