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..

Well, I have sad news, although it is not entirely unexpected. The little birdlet did not continue to grow, and he has died. Also, when Ronnie finally got off the nest so that I could check, the other two eggs had dead chicks who had partly opened their shells but never got all of the way out. Now Courtney and Ronnie are sitting apart and glaring at each other. It is time again for the annual ritual of the flinging around of the blame. I think it is just not meant to be for siblings to reproduce. If only they weren't so devoted to each other, but my attempt to split them up went down in flames and failure, because they are so heartbroken whenever they're apart.
