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.

Courtney and Dale seem to love the new winter quarters. However, I think it is now going to warm up so they're back outside in their flight cages as of ten minutes ago.

I still have a few dollars left from my Christmas check. Maybe I will upgrade Sheldon and Ronnie's winter cage as well. The current option is already roomy enough but it's quite heavy. Hmmm.

I now have all five of The Strokes album on my phone on its own playlist. Put it on shuffle, and you have all the alienation and angst that you could ever need.

But after all these months my so-called smartphone still holds mysteries. For example, it has the greatest hits of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. I once had that record -- and by a record I don't mean a metaphor, I mean a thing on vinyl that gets all scratchy and jumpy -- and we somehow converted it into MP3s back in the day when we decided to toss out all the LP records and indeed all of the annoying record players with their annoying needles constantly needing to be replaced. So considering this album dates back to the 80s, how is it on my phone and NOT on my computer? There's a step skipped somewhere, yes? The NSA has been busy gaslighting my mind, that's the only explanation....Edward Snowden has failed to address any of MY questions, that's all I'm saying.
