Amazon Context Links

Amazon lets you put a little code snippet on your web page that sets up context links. Keywords that Amazon recognizes are formatted as links and if someone clicks on it and buys stuff, you get a few percent back in their affiliate program. This sounds simple and painless. I just did a link-type report […]

John’s top 20 Comedy list

This is Johnny B’s response to my previous post: Top 20 Comedies in no particular order — (I’m assuming by “funniest” youmean the best comedies as works of art as there are plenty of mediocre filmsthat have a lot of funny lines in them, while at the same time there arealso great comedies before which […]

Top 20 Funniest Movies of All Time

John asked me if I liked the Simpsons and he said that someone that he trusted told him that the Simpsons movie was the funniest film of all time. I doubt it. It may be funny, but it is not my kind of humor. I don’t like physical or dumb-ass humor. I like clever and […]

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Repair

I finished Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Repair by Robert Pirsig on the way to work this morning. I had a long email discussion with Johnny B. about this book and the the sophists. He was reading what he could find of Heraclitus and we were discussing the Socratic philosophers and the break between […]

According to the tracking information from Amazon, my Potter tape arrived in the West Nyack Post Office today. It should be in the mailbox when I get home. I am currently listening to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, which I think is a very good read. I have four tapes to go, but […]

Hope for the younger generation

I play harp. Not all harp players are old guys. Check out this lesson from harp player Jason Ricci. Other than the fact that he needs a haircut, I totally get this guy, even though I am old enough to be his grandfather.

Potter Anxiety

I ordered the Potter book through Amazon, who promised to get it to me at or near the release date. The projected delivery date, however is August 1. The promised date applied only to the book and not to the the book on tape. I stopped at B&N to see if they had it, but […]


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.

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.
