Mega Millions

I’ve been trying to figure the odds of nobody winning tonight’s Mega Millions. It is on the order of 5%. I read that about 500 million tickets will be sold this time. This is a guesstimate. It was confirmed that 400 million were sold in the last 48 hours. That would indicate that at least […]

County Web Site Hacked

A few minutes ago, the county website was hacked. Nobody knows how it happened. Security is a joke! Your box owned by Mr.XHat Greets To: All Underground Hackers & Mafia Bands

Political Haggling – I am on furlow.

Because of politics, I am out of job, at least for a few weeks. My contract has been held up and I am told that I can’t come into the office without a contract. Much of the work here is done by consultants and contractors like me, so I don’t think this will last too […]

Today we visit the tractor factory

My brother Ward is vacationing in Russia. He is following the steps my father took during WWII. Dad was stationed in Volgograd. From Ward’s description the place is grim. From Ward: Volgograd is a very historic city for Russia and an industrial dynamo. The city is still recovering from the ravages of Germany’s attempt at […]

Void in New York

I used to get Mother Earth News and loved it, but I haven’t thought about them for years. I guess they are still around. I’d like to see if there still is a magazine to subscribe to. Anyway they are holding a neat contest, but it is void in NY. I want to win these […]

Romney’s Favorite Novel

L. Ron Hubbard was a hack SF writer in the 40s and 50s. He wrote typical imaginative adventure based SF without much depth or characterization. He would be forgotten today if he hadn’t invented Dianetics. I read the original Dianetics in Astounding Science Fiction, and I was not impressed. Somehow this pseudo scientific alternative 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.

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.
