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.

no tree left alive

Well, the neighborhood association has fought it for years, but the evil-doers have finally triumphed. They have knocked down the trees on the corner. It will be the end of Red-Headed Woodpecker nesting in this neighborhood. Pileated Woodpecker disappeared several years ago. And for what? No business has ever succeeded on that corner, and chopping down all the trees to make the site ugly instead of attractive isn't going to change that situation. After all, a few steps away, is another empty building on a completely treeless lot which has huge amounts of parking right across from the entrance to Beau Chene. And a very short drive down the road takes us to yet another boarded-up gas station and convenience store. There was no reason whatsoever to cut those trees to open yet another eyesore gas station with junk food mart that isn't needed and won't make anyone any money except the original contractor. But they are just not going to stop until Highway 22 looks like Veteran's Highway -- as if it doesn't already.

At least we had nice weather today, and the peachfronts are outside again enjoying their beautiful new perches. Courtney, Ronnie, Beep, and Dale's feathers really glow in natural sunlight. I've put some of the plants out too, although not the species that prefer night-time temperatures above 55 degrees.
