Spray-on mud: the ultimate accessory for city 4×4 drivers

John Shirley is all upset about this over on his blog. It doesn’t seem surprising. It is is in the same class as spray on hair and spray on tan. Putting image in a spray can is one of our society’s major goals. Guardian Unlimited | Life | Spray-on mud: the ultimate accessory for city […]

Cosmos 1: The First Solar Sail

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.
