The Perils of Multitasking and Time Delays

So, I have to pony up a faux pas I made in my last post. Remember when I said that R.C. was the only one who picked up on the fact that I had a character sitting in a frozen cave buck naked during a thirty minute conversation? Yeah, well that wasn’t entirely accurate. My … Read more…

In the Aftermath of Multi-Culturalism in Steampunk

This weekend I attended COSine 2017, a very small convention held by and for writers in the Colorado Springs and surrounding areas. It is a volunteer-staffed enterprise where even the panelists pay to participate. I mention this because I go to conventions across the country—twenty cons in 2016 and seventeen cons in 2015. I can assure … Read more…

Rogue One: Pre-flight Jitters

I’m doing my Rogue One blog in two parts, mostly because I’m curious to see how my impressions compare before and after what is a significant media event thirty-nine (yes, 39) years in the making. That’s three quarters of my existence, and I’ve had a vested interested in the franchise since I was a wee … Read more…

Revelation: Axanar

There’s a new sheriff in town, and its name is Axanar. Okay, okay, so that’s a mixed metaphor. Simile? Analogy? Whatever.  What’s important is that Trekkies have something new to love about Star Trek again. It’s been a while, and I’m pretty sure most of us have the DTs. I grew up with Star Trek. … Read more…

An American White Guy’s Realization About Culture

When I’m faced with a moral conundrum, I often ask myself, “What would Picard do?” I admit that with a great deal of pride. The character Captain Jean Luc Picard was depicted in such a fashion that his decisions and decision making processes offer a marvelous compass for the generations who watched Star Trek the … Read more…

“Strength from Within” TOC

I’ll be mentioning this again, so consider yourself warned. When I was asked to contribute a short story to this charity, I counted myself lucky.  Well, it looks like I made the cut, and the list of authors is already out. It’s no secret that I schlep the various books I’m in, as well as the … Read more…

A.T. Russel’s Words

A friend of mine, Anton T. Russsell (the go-to guy for Twisted Core Press), wrote something a while back that really resonated with me. It isn’t about what you want to be, or even who you are. It’s about putting yourself and others in the sweet spot so that reality can be what it is … Read more…

Wrestling the Maelstrom

New mental challenges to face these days… shadows of doubts to slay with mettle and savvy and wisdom. There’s always something, and I suppose these weren’t that unexpected. They even came from the right source. It’s a wild, wacky business I picked, and like everyone else, I’ve ended up tossed about like flotsam within a … Read more…
