Dynamics of Cats

Dynamics of Cats is a fascinating blog by Steinn Sigurðsson who is blogging from the conference on Extreme Solar Systems. There is lots of information on his blog about discovering planets on other Solar Systems. The conference has revealed that earth type planets may be much more common than originally thought. Astronomers find it easier to infer the large mega Jupiter planets, but they are finding lots of smaller planets that have an orbital period of 300 or so days.

Nearby alien life just got much more probable.

    I agree earth like planets may be common place in this galaxy but I doubt they are populated with advanced civilizations like our own.
    Otherwise they’d be here by now.

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.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

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.
