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

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…

A Foundation for Roswell

I’ve  been contemplating the nature of the culture and government of my 1871 Roswell society.  I’m at that point in the new book where I have to define it and lay the groundwork for future memory.  As I contemplated this on the drive in to my day job this morning, something occurred to me. Government … Read more…

Inspiriation: 50% Weirdness, 50% External Input, 50% Science, and 7% Cigars & Scotch

So, I sat down at my day-gig and ran a quick run-through of FB headlines. You never know what you might trawl up from there, and I got lucky over the past two days. And NO, I’m not talking about some hottie from Zodicus Zu’ul… (although some of what that guy posts is positively UberHotness.) … Read more…
