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.

so many spheres and goodies in the mail today!

Goodies in the mail. A credit card company sent me a couple of $25 Amazon gift cards. But the real jackpot came from Michigan...

Please note: All spheres, stands, and photographs on this page were the work of Jim Meeker, "spheremaker" on Etsy and Twitter aka "rattlehead" on RTH. Thanks so much for a beautiful job.

This is a huge, absolutely awesome Orthoceras sphere on an Orthoceras stand that incorporates a small Quartz Crystal sphere into the design. Truly amaze-balls!

Four inch diameter Verdite sphere on an Andara bottle-green glass. Wowsers.

Unakite on Coke bottle glass stand. (The Andara glass in the tweet is a typo.)

I also got some bonus items. Here is the new Michigan septarian display piece:

Jim found this Michigan septarian in addition to shaping and shining it -- and taking the photo. I just took his photos right off Etsy. I may play with trying to photograph them myself soon.

Also I got a pyramid and four cabochons, including a super-nice Petosky cabochon with an amazing shine. Definitely need to photo those guys sometime soon.
