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.

the lovebird is most displeased at the poor quality of human beings you run across these days

2015-02-12 - 7:45 a.m.

I thought I might wash the dirty curtains where Nyota likes to climb and scramble and oh-by-the-by leave her little lovebirdy deposits. She stomped and cried and flew back into her cage and glared and stared but eventually and reluctantly she flew over to play on her actual playpen -- where she stomped and cried and looked out the now-curtainless window. Poor baby.

Finally the curtains came out of the dryer all nice and clean -- and that's when I discovered that the curtain rods were broken and I couldn't put them back up. I blame the stomp and sulk of an angry lovebird landing on them with the full force of her one ounce weight. So then I thought there might be some curtain rods in the attic but whoops, turns out the door to the attic was broken too. Ever had one of those days? I covered the window with an old sheet and Nyota ripped it down and now I have the window sorta covered with a patchwork of fabric and cardboard. Eek. We'll have to get it all sorted this weekend.
