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.

leaf jasper and andara glass spheres join the collection

2013-12-15 - 9:54 a.m.

About time I got off my duff and posted photos of the two new spheres that have joined my collection. Both were cut by Michigan artist Jim Meeker @spheremaker, and both are far superior to what my limited photography skills can hope to express.

The leaf jasper appears to be some sort of brecciated jasper, and it's the one I originally bought for myself. The huge four inch green Andara glass was originally intended to be a gift but, oh well. Once I saw it, I couldn't bear to part with it, so it became a gift to myself. It's near perfect, bubble-free glass -- Jim says he saw one bubble but I haven't found it yet -- but the flip side is that this pure glass is so reflective that I haven't yet figured out how to get a good photo. It's one to admire in person.

On another note, Jake Bugg -- the singer who always takes a shit picture because there's always a hateful look on his otherwise cute face -- has said Christmas parties are boring. Suddenly he's my new hero. Kidding, folks! Kidding!!! No, really. Kidding! I didn't say Christmas parties are hell. Jake Bugg said it. And he hates life so you know?
