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..

little stupid stuff

2013-10-10 - 9:21 p.m.

I stupidly contaminated my 120/220 tumbler run. I don't know why. I added a tablespoon of 60/90 for some unknown reason. You run 60/90 for weeks and I guess I was just in the habit of reaching for it. I had to run it with soap, and I'll just start the project again when I get back in town.

Speaking of stupid, I could only take about 30 seconds of Kanye West on Jimmy Kimmel before I turned it off. I thought he was a smart guy who acted like an asshat to make money because he isn't really much of a singer -- he makes his money on people watching to see what stupid thing he's going to say next. But evidently he truly thinks he's a creative rather than a clown, and it's just sad and embarrassing to watch him. Even though I know he's made scadzillions singing Gold Digger and then having a baby with's just sad. One day the baby will grow up and find out. Ugh, just ugh. But maybe it's worth it to have hundreds of millions, I dunno.

Actually, I've always thought if I was a famous person, I'd be Kurt Cobain, that is, I would have shot myself already. So I can't give advice to unselfconscious famous people. That's probably the only way to be if you're famous. Still, Ye's lack of awareness of how he looks from the outside is amazingly, stunningly awkward. I gather Kimmel just sat there flummoxed and abandoned all control of his show. There wasn't word one out of the dude (during the admittedly brief period) while I watched, other than to say that they would cancel Arctic Monkey's set so that Ye could keep on yapping that he was Jesus, Steve Jobs, and Michelangelo all in one chunky early middle-aged package.
