Hermie’s Here

This fine fellow used to live across the street, but the people moved away. He’s been living under the tarp that covers the wood pile. Recently he he has decided that we are acceptable people and has moved in with us, rather than just mooching our food outside. E. Jim has a similar situation with […]

The Infinity Concerto – Greg Bear

I have received disparaging words from an unnamed sister-in-law about book reviews on my blog, so this will be brief. I have always been a fan of Greg Bear, in spite of his novels being too long. The Infinity Concerto; not so much. I prefer hard science and I believe that Bear writes hard science […]

Free eReader Stories

I managed to convert a story to eReader format. I was able to download it to the free eReader app that I downloaded from the Apple App Store. Next I need to add formatting and some cover art. The simple program that I found doesn’t really let you do anything. The default eReader font is […]

PHA Close Approaches To The Earth

Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are asteroids that will pass very close to earth. The link is to the list ordered in ascending distance order. Aphophos will pass Earth at about 21,000 miles in the year 2029. This is very close, and I think will be very scary. I will be 78 years old then. There’s […]

Edd Cartier 1914-2008

I am saddened to learn that Edd Cartier, one of the great artists of the Golden Age of Science Fiction, passed away on Christmas Day. I met Edd quite by accident when he and his son were having a garage sale. I was lucky enough to buy some of his work and get it signed […]

eReader on the iPhone

Robert J. Sawyer, a darn good SF writer, coincidentally posted about using the iPhone as an eBook reader today. He seems to like it a lot. I downloaded the iPhone eReader app today and I am going to download the conversion utility next. e. Jim pointed it out to me. I had already read it […]

The Closet of Lost Technology

Every once in a while Justine cleans out her closet, and I get a shot at some neat pieces of old hardware that she doesn’t want anymore. Justine, Erica and I went down to New York City to do the Christmas Dinner thing at the NY Athletic Club on Central park South. It was, as […]

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 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.
