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.

some finds in blue

Some stuff I found cleaning up before I got too overheated:

That's neon blue apatite, facet grade crystals. We were going to get into faceting and then, well, 20 years went by and obviously we're not getting into faceting. I think I'll be able to sell that.

On my front yard, I have placed a Brazilian Agate too big to lift so I kind of had to ease it into place using a dolly. I would sell it, I suppose, but there's no way to ship it. I can't even lift it, much less fit it in a large priority mail flat rater. No idea what it weighs. A lot. But if someone knocked on my door and wanted to buy it, I'd probably sell since it's way too large for our projects. It was in a hidden place in the backyard for some reason, and I didn't even know it was there. I'm going to put it on display out front. If anybody wants to steal something that size, well, knock yourself out honey! In all the years I've lived here I've only had one item stolen from my front yard rock display, a large crystal cluster. Gosh, that was probably 10 or 15 years ago. Those evildoers are long gone...

The lady who bought my bloodstone pieces from Instagram left me a really nice note about it. I'm so glad they found her! I need to get serious about moving some of my other extras...
