Time Travel

May 5th, 2017

Time Travel It’s one of my favorite topics in Science Fiction and there have been lots of treatments in literature, movies and television. Lots of them are silly, but several are very, very good, at least in my opinion. Netflix’s Travelers, Continuum, Twelve Monkeys (the book, the movie and the TV show)The Time Machine, Millennium, […]

Retirement

April 12th, 2017

What I’ve been thinking about lately is this: how in the name of all that’s right and holy am I ever going to be able to retire? Sixty-seven is only 12 years away and due to my own stupidity and bad financial moves I have maybe 35K set aside in my 401K. With the pittance […]

Caved In

June 19th, 2013

Once again, back on Facebook. I figured that a week away didn’t lead to withdrawal symptoms, so what the heck?

More of the Story of the Belleau Wood

May 10th, 2013

The ship came alive in Belle’s sensors, the energies she would unleash slowly building as the countdown approached the zero mark. Twenty hours earlier she had begun charging the toroid magnets of the Constriction Channel, flooding them with liquid helium, then gently ramping up the current running through them, monitoring for any hint of failure.

Sage advice (and good merchandising) from Wil Wheaton

A little bit of something that’s been kicking around in my head the past few months

November 12th, 2012

The sequel to Methuselah’s Daughter is a bit of a dead issue at this time. I made so many compromises to her character that I’m finding it nearly impossible to write Zsallia well, and without that I can’t see any point in pushing forward. It may yet come to pass, but I doubt it. Anyhow, […]

Upgrading to Windows 8

August 15th, 2012

Well, seeing as Microsoft released the RTM version of Windows 8 to Technet subscribers today I’ve gone and downloaded my copy and I am running a direct upgrade of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 to Windows 8 x64. Not as courageous (or foolish, depending upon your point of view) as you might think because I happen […]

Methuselah’s Daughter: A Novel

February 8th, 2012

My novel Methuselah’s Daughter is on sale for the next two weeks at 99 cents in both Kindle and Nook formats. I’m celebrating my youngets son passing his driving test (and hoping to scrape up a little insurance money)

Working up to working on something… honest…

October 27th, 2011

I’ve been playing mental ping-pong with Dean these past several weeks regarding the second part of the Methuselah’s Daughter series, but really the issue is me getting down to the work of writing. Excuses are multiple and quite lame because I really do have a very, very good idea how this should all unfold and […]
