Monthly Archives: February 2009


I ordered my bees today. I put the $70 order in at, which is up in Greenwich, NY. This is very late to order bees. Usually they tell you to order by February 1st. I hope that Betterbee is not sold out. I have not yet received my order confirmation. Greenwich (pronounced green-witch) is […]

Separated at Birth

I don’t usually watch much of presidential speeches. There has been little reason to do this for the last 8 years. Obama, though, is a tremendous speaker and his speech the other night was very interesting and entertaining. I am rooting for him, although I am not sure that any spending or bailout plan will […]

Philip José Farmer 1918-2009

Philip José Farmer died today at the age of 91. I remember Mr. Farmer as the Science Fiction writer who finally brought sex to SF, even before Heinlein. His story The Lovers is the first and best story of a love affair between an alien and a human. His Riverworld Series will always be on […]

Rudy Rucker on Self-Publishing

Rudy Rucker was interviewed at Rudy is one of my favorite writers. I discovered him when I started exploring cyberpunk, but Rudy is a different animal and his books are more like math-punk. His novel Wetware was the first thing that I read by him, and I still think it is his best. Rudy […]

SAO Short Course Week 0

I received the email telling me how to log on to the Swinburne Astronomy Online (SAO) short course. I managed to get onto their oh-so-slow system. They use a package with clunky java applets and ugly frames – very 1990s. I tried to change my password, which can be easily derived if you know my […]

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.
