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.

back again like the proverbial bad penny

We are back! Since the tickets were gifts, and we got economy comfort seats the whole way, I think it went pretty smoothly. I also got TSA/Precheck both ways and didn't have to take off my shoes or do any of that scanner garbage, which is especially nice with the knee and all. However, on future trips, I think I will still make more effort just to go in business/first.

They actually had a good restaurant at SFO. I got ahi tuna tacos with a lemon drop martini. The lemon drop martini was a fair not airport price for a martini ($9) and yet was a high quality lemon drop. The tacos were crisp and out of this world and not too expensive either. I gather that this is a real restaurant that just happens to have a location at the airport.

Now that I have found my camera cable, I will be uploading more photos soon. Stay tuned.

I had a rather bad dream. It was about Arthur. We had a huge place with a view like our hotel room in San Francisco. However, the maid had apparently come in and put down the blinds but raised the window glass. I didn't know the window was open. Neither did Arthur. He came out to play and then accidently flew out the window and didn't know how to fly back in at first. It was 35 stories up (not 25 stories as in real life) and, either way, I could not climb out the window and try to catch him out of a tree. (Pretty tall tree, huh, but that's dream logic.) Fortunately, he eventually flew back in before I completely freaked out and woke up.
