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.

2014 new year's resolution scorecard

2014-12-31 - 12:11 p.m.

  1. Plan and take a birding trip. The Snowy Owl chase was canceled due to weather causing Delta to cancel multiple flights. However, as a piece of good luck, I was invited to join a tour in March which included such rarities as the Spanish Imperial Eagle at the nest...
  2. Get up at 8 AM six out of seven days. This totally didn't happen this year.
  3. Walk or very low impact exercise for an hour six days out of seven. Done!
  4. Shape and polish 30 freeform cabs. Done. I stopped counting after 30 but I think I've got it down the best way to shape by hand and then finish in the rotary tumbler. I got some nice pieces out this year.
  5. Make 12 new recipes this year. Done. I also worked on some new techniques that took some of my recipes to another level. I can get a super-crispy chicken or turkey skin every time now...
  6. Make 12 posts (1 a month) for each of our writer's sites and for the peachfront conure files. Done, plus I transferred to blue host and added a hidden mirror site for some of localroger's fics and essays which are hosted elsewhere. If the original site gets shut down, which may be just a matter of time, all I have to do is stop hiding the mirror from search engines and localroger's most popular older free pieces will be back online.
  7. Kindle-ize the rest of Roger's fiction. I Kindle-ized The Mortal Passage Trilogy and determined that it probably wasn't a good idea to continue with Revelation Passage until I get a fresh group of people willing to post reviews. I don't want to exhaust the fans.
  8. Get another writing job. The job I had at the end of 2013 developed into a longer job than I originally planned. It's wrapped up now, but I may travel a bit and spend some of my earnings before I dive into another project.
