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.

a thought from our fearless leader

That's why I switched to the UK Twitter feed. You still get #HappyBirthdayToZaynsDog but you also get alerted when Alex Turner appears on a Vine dancing with Miles to "Barely Legal." It's enough to make you wonder why we bothered to dump all that tea in the harbor...

Thought for the day: In modern fiction, we never use the word "exclaim." No one, ever, "exclaims" anything. If you think she "exclaimed" something, step away from the keyboard until you calm down. Thank you!

Seriously, tho. The English teacher who taught people that "exclaim" is a word should be arrested for malpractice. You wouldn't tolerate this level of shittiness from a lawyer or a doctor. Where is the ethics? It isn't like this is a new rule. This has been the same rule since I dunno. I want to say 1922? Some historian will have to figure it out because there can't be many people left alive who remember this being used as a legit word in fiction.

It's interesting in a way being on the editing side since I've been a writer for so many years but yikes. In another way you wonder why every editor doesn't go screaming insanity in the streets.
