KEPLER-11 on Google Sky

I tweaked my star finder program so it could see where in the Sky KEPLER-11 is located. This is the planet that is so much like Earth that it might be able to support life. This is very exciting that the Kepler Space Telescope can actually find earth type planets – not just one but […]

The Last Space Shuttle

My friend Jim wants to retire to Florida. I totally disagree, but some people like Florida and I can’t really argue with what he wants. He went down a few months ago, found a house he likes, and wants to buy, but before he buys, he wants to see Florida in the summer time. I […]

SmashWords Update

I sold a story through SmashWords today, but it was a sale on the Barnes and Noble site. This was the first time this has happened. I made 61¢ from a 99¢ sale. If I sell directly through Smashwords I get 81¢. I hope that I sell hundreds more. If you list a book or […]

‘The Hobbit’: filming begins March 21

I Like Lord of the Rings (I have read the book literally hundreds of times), and I enjoy The Hobbit, although it is not a great book. The Hobbit, however should make a much better movie. There are large parts that can be cut out, compressing the story so that it will fit well on […]

eBooks Shelf Space

Today I received my first sale from SmashWords. I had given up on this site. They have a huge inventory, but do not have the traffic that Amazon or Barnes & Noble have. I have 7 books for sale there, but this is not much “shelf space” on a site that has millions of books. […]

Larry Losing his Job

My brother is losing his job at Xerox. They are closing the distribution center in Suffern on May 3. Larry has worked for Xerox for 35 years, fixing copy machines, riding a fork lift, and supervising stock handlers. He will have 45 weeks severance and a small pension when the plant closes, followed by 26 […]

List of Crayola crayon colors

I am not an artist, and I have trouble making web pages that use colors. This link to a page on Wikipedia, however, translates the Crayola crayon colors into HTML color codes. Now, when I need a color, I can go back in time to when I was 7 years old and pick the right […]


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.
