Up and Coming Events

Sunday night, January 23, I will be seeing “Hot Tuna” live at the Helen Hayes theater in Nyack, NY. I am looking forward to this. We listen to Hot Tuna on vinyl every sunday night at poker. We have named one of our games after the group. On March 25, I will be at the […]

Books on Tape – Short Reviews

Books on Tape I finished “The Diamond Age” by Neal Stephenson. The ending was not as good as I would have liked. Stephenson ended it, but it was not satisfying. It sort-of reached a point where the book was long enough so he just shut down the plots. I bought Stephenson’s Snow Crash on eBay. […]

Hit and Miss

I received a no from SDO Ghost on a story that I thought that I had not submitted to them and a Yes from Tales of the Talisman for my Western tale. I thought that this one was a dead-un also because I mistyped my email address on the submission. The Talisman sub was for […]

James Baker Award

Bad news on the James Baker Award over at I am up against Justin Stanchfield who seems to be pretty damn good. His story Steel Birth pisses all over my “Flare Bound” story. In addition, the SamsDotters telegraphed their hand by having his story on their Preditors and Editors sample ballot.


Boy are you guys lucky. I started writing a 2004 retrospective and an outlook on 2005. Both were pretty grim, and I trashed the entry, so all I will say is that 2005 is going to be another tough year. I hope things get a little better – at least for a while. I’m sick […]


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
