$20,000 in a week

I lost some money this week in the market crash. I hope to make it back next week. You can’t think about this stuff. The stock market goes up and down. I never really had the money in the first place. This is all paper money. I won’t start taking money out until I retire […]

Retracing Rover’s Steps out of Victoria Crater

This incredible animate gif loops through retracing Rover’s Steps out of Victoria Crater. I love the Mars Rovers. Let’s think of a good story where the rover saves the day. Maybe a murder mystery where the guy who programs the rover is murdered but leaves a clue in the path the rover is programmed to […]


Each morning I open a bunch of blogs and read them during the day as I get bored. This morning about half of them were blocked by the County firewall software. It looks like the county has blocked most of the blogger blogspot sites. I will now have to wait until I get home to […] – who knew?

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.
