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.

Hey, if you chase down enough livestream rumors, sooner or later you find one that actually works. I saw the entire Arctic Monkeys livestream from Voodoo Fest. There was no way I was going to pay festival ticket prices plus the nightmare of City Park parking when there was only one act that represented young rock 'n' roll so I was happy their performance actually got streamed. The act streamed before them was god-awful, so everyone in chat sighed a sigh of relief when their stage got cut off in the middle to switch over to AM.

The boys seemed to feel a bit out of place, and the setlist was missing a few key pieces such as "Cornerstone" and "My Propeller." Also Matt was missing his hair. I might not have chosen to shave my scalp the day before a night that's barely above freezing but he probably thought he was headed off for the tropics...

Instead of screaming, "Ladies..." -- Alex can no longer scream after over a year of live touring -- he mumbled something about Nietzsche before playing "Dancefloor." I know he spent his formative years pouring drinks in a pub but somebody needs to tell this boy that there's such a thing as books published after 1950. Nietzsche and Nabokov don't fit the Elvis/James Dean pouty look anyways...

I guess it's obvious I spent most of Saturday getting caught up on my sleep -- napping, coloring my hair, gossiping about the setlist (some of the girls already knew what they would play although I'm not sure how), and then watching the stream. Very restful, I'm sure...

I just remembered that I dreamed something about Cookie last night. Now I can't remember what.

a few minutes later

Awwww. Cookie just ran over and picked out a lucky Green Moss Agate to play with. He's so cute.
