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.

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.







more canals than venice and more fog too

2004-01-26 - 2:26 p.m.

We have arrived in Amsterdam. The flight out was long and tiring for not any discernible reason. The security was alert and efficient, and the Kenya Airways outbound flight was on time and extremely smooth, but I think I am a bit road-weary.

The last bird seen from Nairobi was the Black Kite. As I was making a note in my paper diary to this effect, a security guard asked to see what I was writing. I'm sure he was concerned that I was making notes about security precautions and was hugely amused to see that I was writing about birds.

We enjoyed onion soup and a liter of a highly dubious wine last night, but today we have more energy and have already explored the Hermitage exhibit at the New Church despite the gloom and fog. The topic of the exhibit was love, romance, and eros through the ages, which seems a bit odd for a former cathedral which appears to still have bodies buried under the floors.
