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.

andean subspecies (possible upcoming species) of white -rumped hawk

Eh, photobucket and the internet at the house are giving me fits since I've been back. Very slow to load. And then I get distracted and wander off and do something else.

Yeppers, that's a whole bunch of excuses for why I haven't finished editing and posting my photos from the northern Argentina adventure yet. Enjoy this highly confiding White- rumped Hawk -- we even heard him singing! -- as a teaser.

Honestly, it's a stretch to say I took this picture. It appeared on my camera but I had very little to do with it. My unsteady hands are just not made for free form digiscoping, so S. did the real work of taking the photo...and a beautiful job it is, even though he isn't used to working with hobby cameras held together by spit and aluminum electronics tape!

The bird list will be upcoming soon too. I have decided to add scientific names to my list, so it's all taking longer than I expected. Onward!
