Like many writers, I have a habit of checking the Amazon pages of my books to see how they’re ranked from week to week. I’m also intrigued by reviews not only on Amazon but on Goodreads, Kobo, Nook, blogs, everywhere. It’s interesting to see what people say. Writing is a lonely job, so I always […]

Good friends of ours opened a float therapy business called Peak Performance Float Inc. Here is their website. The address is 311 Lennon Lane Ste #A in Walnut Creek, CA 94596. You can call them at 925-899-87761. For a sci fi guy living in the future, I don’t get out much. I’d never heard of […]

Actually, I strive not to be political as far as social media is concerned. Too many kooks on the net! If you read my books, you can get some sense of my world view. Meanwhile, Happy Halloween! 🙂
Here is my short story “Pressure” translated into German as Lange Augen on Pulpcore, a hot new webzine in the Fatherland. That’s right. The editor, Heiner Eden, released his translation in July. I am just now bragging about it. What a crazy year it’s been! 😛 Dankeschun!
The critics at San Francisco Book Review think good things about Frozen Sky 3. Hooray! Their acronym and my acronym make me want to say this an SFBR FS3, right? My only quibble about their review is that while, yes, FS2 was a short novel and therefore a ‘novella,’ FS1 was a full-fledged novel and […]
We live in northern California in a small old house built in 1961, when everybody but everybody was putting in pools.
