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.


2003-07-01 - 10:30 a.m.

I am posting from the public library to let people know what is going on, especially my EBay customers. The eye of Tropical Storm Bill passed over last night at around 7 P.M. At that time, the floodwaters on our street began to subside, and we started to sigh a sigh of relief. Wet hummingbirds and baby mockers ventured out to feed, and I even saw four purple martins take to the air.

Around 8:30 P.M. or perhaps a little earlier, as I was standing in the kitchen, I heard a tremendous slam and BF was shoved forward along the living room. The power, which had been going on and off constantly all evening, went off immediately, as did the telephone service. There is no telling when it will all be fixed, because the enormous old oak tree from the CLECO property is now in my living room with several branches thrust through the cathedral ceiling. There are more branches in my office. The bird porch is completely destroyed, and Cookie likely would have been killed if he had been in his usual spot. Everyone is safe, but the damage to the house is serious and extensive. I can't write any more right now. I hope to return with photographs in a few days but realistically it may be more like weeks or months before I'll be uploading pictures again.

I don't know about my Brownsville trip now. I think I will have to find out if I can get my money back, but it may be too late.

I am in shock. I am not used to large objects falling out of the sky and narrowly missing BF's head. Our adventure with a small object of that nature (the bullets of Kenner) was quite enough, thank you.
