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.

picnic party with the birdies

2014-08-03 - 10:29 a.m.

Nice weather yesterday. I moved the conures back outside in the evening, and we all had a bird picnic party. Even the male Cardinal came down to drink at the birdbath, although he gave us a hairy eyeball while he did it.

At one point everyone was clutching a nutriberry in his or her claw, all the conures and Cookie. Only Nyota is the hold-out since she never acknowledges anything except millet as food. However, a little later I noticed that she did break down and eat some cooked corn.

The mulberry tree is already sprouting again...

In the News: Can't believe the folks who think the doctor should not have been able to come home for Ebola care. What a world. There's a lot of things to get freaked out about. IMHO a doctor getting treated in an isolation unit is not one of them unless you're trying to write a Robin Cook...


So the post office delivers on Sunday now? I know I said I only buy MP3s now but it was another situation where getting the CD was really cheaper after they pile on the free shipping and free MP3 credits...

Update: At one time there was a cool photo of my new Pavement CD right here but thanks to the tragedy of Photobucket, it is here no more. Don't do business with Photobucket is my recommendation...
