Read my new book, The 10 Best Things You Can Do For Your Bird at Amazon or at many other fine distributors like Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and more.


By public demand, and after a delay of an embarrassing number of years, I've finally put my notorious essay, Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman, free on the fabulous internets.

A bibliography of my published books and stories.

Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.


A Sadean take on Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics can be found in Roger Williams' NOW REVIEWED ON SLASHDOT!!! The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. Adult readers only please -- explicit sex and violence. For updates on the "Dead Tree Project" and other topics, you may visit the official fan site, Passages in the Void..


My Bird Lists -- My Louisiana State Life List, My Yard List and, tah dah, My World Life List.


HEY! What happened to the Peachfront Conure Files? The world's only OFFICIAL Peachfront Conure site now features free peachfront conure coverage, including a magazine length Intro to Conures previously published in American Cage-Bird Magazine, now free on the web. I offer the best free Peachfront Conure information on the internet. If you have great Peachfront Conure info, stories, or photos to share, contact me so I can publicize your pet, your breeding success, your great photograph, etc. on my site. Thanks.

The bark beetle tree is gone. Yay.

A strange day. The bank no longer takes coins. The machine was pulled. They said they plan on getting wrappers so people could roll coins. I burst out laughing. Even the teller had to burst out laughing. (I'm not sure the bank manager was laughing.) C'mon, people, I'm not going back to 1983. Ain't nobody got time for that. Oh, and I forgot to mention -- they're only taking quarters and up. Other coins will be phased out. Well, I've been noticing myself that inflation has gone crazy. Everywhere I went that it was $3 or less, I used my coins. The post office. $2.38. Coins. The cupcake place. $3. The dollar store. $3.20. Nobody seemed to mind. And it's kind of like getting stuff for free since the coins are no longer worth anything...

Nobody was in the used book store. I only had two books to trade, and the place is for sale and probably on the ropes, and nobody ever did show up after...hmmm...15 or 20 minutes? So I just left the books on the desk without taking anything for trade. There's some trade fee now, and I never remember what it is, so I wouldn't have known what to charge myself if I did take a book. Oh well. They probably don't mind a couple of free books. They'll figure it out. Or they won't. I just hope they didn't go screaming out the back and get murdered or something. It was just...weird.

A lady on Twitter DM'd me claiming to know me from wayback, and maybe so, but I don't know her, and mmmm, nope. Never heard of you and I'm not going to attend your event, lady. Getting a real weird vibe from this person. If they were somebody who knew me, they clearly didn't really want me to attend the event. But for some reason they wanted to say they contacted me anyway. I think they just wanted to know if it was me. I hope it wasn't my stalker. Ugh!!!!!

If there wasn't a heat advisory today, there should have been. The birds are all inside for the duration. I spent $71 of my gift card from Amazon on bird items. They better appreciate.
