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.

So, awhile back, this guy hopped up and got removed from my office. A few days ago, around the snow day, Nyota the Lovebird and I became aware of a second smaller, but still adult, anole that was living in my office. I figure these guys hibernate and that her mate (assuming it was a pair) was out there hibernating, but I could hardly put her out in the snow since she was active and hopping merrily around. Also, there's an alternative theory-- that they aren't mates, that she was able to move into the warm territory because I removed the bigger, bolder, badder anole...

Be that as it may, I have now learned that an anole can cry. Just once, just for one sad lonely moment in the dark of night, but it tore my heart. What if it was her mate? What if they never find each other again?

To think I have lived this long and never before heard one of them speak. I didn't even know they could...

Only one White-throated Sparrow so far this year. I have learned they are missing all over Louisiana, not just at chez Peachfront. Hmmm.
