Neumann Model KU 100

I collect old microphones and I came across this interesting stereo mic on a collector’s website. It is designed to give accurate stereo recordings by making the mic into the form of a human head with realistically shaped ears for the receiving sections. Of course, it is a dumb idea, but beautifully implemented “The KU […]

Roller Derby Tryouts in Yonkers

Erica spent a good chunk of her childhood on roller skates cruising the sidewalks of the New York’s East Village. She was very disappointed when they moved up to the burbs and there were no sidewalks and the roads were covered with tarred gravel. I bet there was a time when I could have talked […]

Nyack psychedelic artist gets 60 days to change storefront

There are a bunch of funny stories about the art on this North Broadway storefront. John B. met the artist in a bar in Nyack and wanted her to come to poker. She was all for it, except Jim didn’t want any 20 somethings at the poker table. My mother had some strong opinions about […]

Bleak History by John Shirley (2009)

John Shirley is one of my favorite writers. I just finished his latest book Bleak History. Bleak History is a fantasy novel that has its roots in SF type fantasy such a Fritz Leiber’s Conjure Wife and Heinlein’s Magic Incorporated. Bleak History has quite a bit in common Poul Anderson’s Operation Chaos books. It has […]

Template Problems

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.
