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..

2013 New Year's Resolutions


  1. Study a bird identification tip or field mark 5 times a week.
  2. I will switch to "Bird Friendly" coffee, once I find a supplier who can provide it.

  4. I will plant three new garden herbs. I've let the garden take care of itself the last few years, which means that the hummingbird plants have eaten the entire backyard and the only remaining edible herbs are currently garlic chives and rosemary. The three new herbs don't have to be perennials but it would be nice to get growing more green food again. Something that could work as a caffeine free tea for the evenings would be great.
  5. I will continue to exercise 45 minutes a day 6 days a week. Although I will keep the focus on low impact activities, I will add 15 minutes of weight training three days a week ONLY.

  7. I will cut and polish at least 12 cabs this year. 2012 was the year of big projects, including several tables, with something of a focus on paper and paint, as well as stone. It was also the year when I finally swapped/sold enough stone that I can now see all of my materials on a single layer and actually FIND my stone materials. perfect more cabs.

  9. In honor of the 10th anniversary of the publication of The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect, I will launch the localroger fan site. Among other services, I will Kindle-ize his stories to make it easier for fans who prefer to buy ebooks on Kindle.
  10. I will launch my own writer's site, which will touch on my SF and other projects, as well as offering my freelance services. I will also Kindle-ize my SF and get paid freelance writing gigs from at least three different clients.
  11. I will create two niche/affiliate marketing sites.
