Black Ice

October 29, 2020

Kathy had an appointment in Albuquerque on Monday, and I had some business in town as well, so we drove up together.  We knew the weather would deteriorate over the course of the day, but Kathy’s business should have been over by 2pm, and that would have got us to our warm hearth in plenty […]

Sanity Trip

October 9, 2020

I badly needed a sanity trip, so I drove to the Ski Valley and checked into a condo.  I’ll be alone up here for several days, self-isolating in nature.  I may meet some folks on the trails or whatever, but I’ve got a mask for that. As for why I needed this trip, just look […]

Another Fine Review

September 26, 2020

The Nerd Daily posted a fine review of Fleet Elements. With a pace that is faster than light, Walter Jon Williams’s fifth book in the Dread Empire’s Fall series, Fleet Elements is a space opera that doesn’t disappoint . . .  great soap opera science fiction, full of gung ho rebels trying to save themselves, with […]

Back on the Keyboard

September 24, 2020

Fortunately the butterfly-switch keyboard on my machine had generated such […]

A Few Good Things

September 17, 2020

First, I finished Lord Quillifer in the early hours of the morning, and sent it on to my editor and my agent.  I was so afraid that the project would be Dance with Dragons-sized that I’d stopped doing word counts for the last ten chapters or so, but when I finally added them up, the book turned […]

Final Sprint

September 11, 2020

I feel as if I’ve been sprinting to the finish of Lord Quillifer forever.  Up till now, with every page I added, the finale seemed to have receded farther out of sight, but now I think I’ve got a handle on it.  I’ve written the last big action scene, I’ve written the last big revelation scene, […]

And Now . . . Winter!

September 9, 2020

The big storm struck as predicted, and the temperature dropped nearly 50 degrees overnight, complete with hours of heavy freezing rain.  We didn’t get any snow, but Colorado got quite a bit. Yesterday the high was in the 90s and the air conditioner was going all day.  Today I had to light the boiler so […]
