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 mad potter of biloxi

Here are some photographs taken in March 2001 at the George Ohr museum in Biloxi. It's difficult to do justice to the quality of the glaze, shape, and color of these unusual pots. They must be seen to be fully appreciated.

Note: All photographs � 2001 by Elaine Radford.

Um, yeah, Biloxi. You might find a beach and some seafood and some casinos there too. The endangered "Least Tern" nesting area can be seen from Highway 90 going from Gulfport to Biloxi. Don't interfere with nesting seabirds. It's illegal, and the gulls and terns will drive you off their property anyway if you get too close.

Some easily seen birds from the highway include Great Blue Heron, Brown Pelican, Laughing Gull, Black Skimmer. In Biloxi proper, I've occasionally seen Osprey from Farradday's restaurant in the Isle of Capri casino or from one of the three Casino Row hotels of Grand, Isle of Capri, and Magic when I've had a room overlooking the ocean.
