Award Season

January 31, 2017

This is the time of year in which hopeful authors post a list of their publications in the fond belief that their readers will nominate them for awards.  It’s never worked for me, but then there’s always a first time. My list this time is short and simple: the only publication I had in 2016 was […]

Can’t Escape the Damn Eagles

January 29, 2017

So I went with my gracious hosts to the aptly-named Todos Santos over on the Pacific side of Baja, and I found myself visiting this hotel, which allegedly inspired the Eagles song.  Which song I’ve been unable to get out of my head for days now, so thanks a lot.

Spot The Fish In This Picture

January 25, 2017

Here amid the scattered wreckage of the lost German freighter Lunderberg lies a highly toxic fish.  You don’t want to touch it or step on it lest it inject neurotoxin through its spines, which are designed like little pressure mines, the more the weight, the more the venom.

Post-Apocalypse

January 20, 2017

In an apocalyptic mood for some reason?  (I can’t imagine what that reason might be.) In that case you should take advantage of the 99-cent sale on my bestselling ebook, The Rift. The Rift was intended as a breakout book, in which a larger-than-usual audience would be exposed to my Walter-y goodness.  In the event, the […]

Sulawesi

January 18, 2017

A little over two years ago, I was right at this spot, seeing these exact creatures. I set the climax of Impersonations here, thinking perhaps of camouflage and how to maintain it.

New Year, New Career

January 18, 2017

I just want to remind everyone that the submission period for Taos Toolbox, the master class for writers of science fiction and fantasy, is far from over.  There are still places available, and if you take your writing seriously and want to move in the direction of having a writing career, sending in your application […]

Spot the Fish in this Picture

January 14, 2017

It’s a crocodile fish, known less descriptively as “de Beaufort’s flathead.” It’s also an ambush predator, so if you happen to be a small crustacean, don’t get too close.
