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.

On Saturday we visited the Mission District. Many colorful murals, many street sellers and bookstores and thrift shops. The Pirate store and Paxton Gate, of course. Please tie up your parrot on the parking meter, as no parrots are allowed inside the store. A tour of the various sets at the Armory. We realized right away that we were, by far, the oldest people on the armory tour -- indeed, the next oldest was probably 15 years or more younger than DH, let alone myself so -- I guess it gives you hope for the next generation of weirdos and freaks. Or somesuch.

Dinner at a little hole in the wall Portuguese place.

Today we took the ferry to Angel Island and hiked up Mt. Livermore. It was the first day where we saw any fog, but it was really only enough to add some scenic atmosphere. There were several smallish kettles of migratory (or not, in the case of the Red-Tailed Hawks) raptors swirling around the island.

After the hike, we split a bottle of wine and listened to the live bluegrass music before catching the ferry back to San Francisco.
