I am recomputered

I have a computer, Dual Core, 2.83ghz, 3.25 gigs ram (I could have used 4 gigs). I am trying to restore all the stuff that I need to get work done. In the process, I was able to finesse a second monitor so now I have one monitor with email and another with work on […]

No Work Computer – Day 5

I found and appropriated a very small computer that was to be used in the Parks Department Kiosk project. This involved a kiosk that was to be placed in various places with County information. I wrote the whole thing, but the old Kiosks had screens that did not work with modern machines. The drivers were […]

No Work Computer – Day 4

I am still getting paid, but I have nothing to do but sit here in the computer lab and surf. All the bosses are on vacation. Normally, this would be a very productive time – I do my best work when the bosses are gone. Unfortunately all of my tools and resources are on a […]

Farewell Tour

My story Farewell Tour, is up at Freezine. It is a Rock and Roll ghost story, not Science Fiction. John Shirley, one of my favorite writers, is serializing an old fashioned pulp style adventure fantasy so my story is sandwiched between an exiting story that people are actually reading. I hope they hang around long […]

More on low traffic ways to make money from affiliates

Ten days ago I made a post about using a simple php script to create a web page of things for sale on eBay. I chose as an example Shimano Bicycle parts. I know little or nothing about bicycle parts, but I did a little research on eBay and found that there is a large […]

More Rejects

It’s Karma. I gave Crescendo a bad review and in the time it took to write the review I received a couple of unkind reviews of my own short stories. It seems that this time the editors went out of their way to express their dislike for my stories. It doesn’t help me feel any […]

Crescendo, L. Marie Wood (2002)

I was doing a Google search for Speculative Fiction in Rockland County, NY. I wondered if there were any clubs or readings in my neck of the woods. I found Crescendo, which was written using some settings in my neighborhood. I decided to buy it and found it on for $1.99. Crescendo, according to […]

Work Computer is Dead

My work machine wouldn’t boot this morning. This has been coming for a while. I have been getting frequent errors. The help desk will get me a new machine soon, but it means that I will spend a day or two reinstalling all of the software and tools that I use on a day to […]


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.
