One Door Away From Heaven

I am listening to Dean Koontz’ book on tape One Door Away From Heaven and I am enjoying it entirely too much. I have one big problem with Koontz and that is that he believes in Evil (capital letter intended). His bad guys are very bad – too bad. They scare me a little too […]

My tippet only tulle*

This is from Johnny B. He says that it should be sung to the tune of Gilligan’s Island. It puts a whole new light on the poem that I have always thought a little too grim. You have to repeat the last line of each verse soto voce to get the full Gilligan effect. Thanks […]

81 mph Bike

My friend Eric is an avid bicyclist and sometimes rides around Nyack in a vintage recumbent bike. I see him from time to time when I walk around Rockland Lake. A biker will pass me at some incredible speed and I’ll hear “Hey Keith” and by the time I turn around he’s gone. He sent […]

How to Not Hire an American

Here is something that I have known about for a while, but it seems few people actually believed. American companies want to hire foreign workers because they will work for much less than the going rate. In order to hire a foreign worker, a company must pretend to look for qualified Americans. Most jobs posted […]

Social Security Calcs

My friend Jim and I have discussed when to start collecting social security. I can start collecting at a reduced rate at age 62 plus one month. I can get full benefits if I don’t start collecting until 66 and I can get even more benefits if I put it off until 70. At age […]

Changing Offices

I moved my office location at work today. I am in a new building and cubicle. The chair is very uncomfortable and designed for a short person. I am 6’3″ and my legs are hitting the underside of the desk. The phone doesn’t work and the internet is very slow compared to the other building. […]

Harry Potter Spoilers

A hacker claims to have a digital version of the last Harry Potter book. He announced some spoilers, but they don’t seem to be make sense. I don’t think Rowling will kill off both Hermione and Hagrid. I think she might kill one or the other, but not both. Also, I believe that Snape will […]

Deer at 3AM

I got back from my long Saturday trip around 3AM this morning. I pulled into the driveway and cut the headlights. I got out of the truck into the pitch black night. The streetlight was out again and I had to fairly feel my way to the gate. As I opened the old gate into […]


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.

Keith Graham's Links

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.
