Photo: HWA's Stoker Award for Specialty Press, won in 2013 by Gray Friar Press from the UK.   Well, this is embarrassing, but here's my admission:    As a member of the Horror Writers Association of America, I thought I was eligible to vote for the HWA's Stoker Awards, but I'm not...

Photos: Awesome pics of the woods and mountains of Berea, Kentucky, from its Wikipedia page.   Just a quick shout-out to a few new readers in the past month or so.  I thought it would be cool to look at the towns and cities, and their pasts and presents, of my awesome (and new) readers...

Talk of health care reform seems to vacillate between scoldings and a snooze fest. So I'll admit that I attended last night's dinner and lecture expecting bored-with-a-chance-of-finger-waving.  Clearly, I need to get out more. Journalist and author T.R. Reid took the audience at the OHSU...

We got the call at 9:15 last night.  It was a recording from the principal of my son's middle school. "Excuse the lateness of this call, but I think it's important you know that yesterday after school one student reported hearing another talk about bringing a gun in tomorrow." The principal...

My wife had her New Day sustainability breakfast on Friday morning.  The agenda is to provide a forum for everyone to come together to share grassroot ideas about improving community.  They often have several speakers.  One speaker this week was from the United Way. I was surprised...

We're planning a trip to Bend, Oregon.  It won't be much, just three days and two nights. We do expect adventures. Not having ever been to Bend, we're looking forward to it.  Oregon is the sixth state my wife and I have adopted as home.  We've never done as well as we should in...

           The National Rifle Association is a collection of cowardly bastards afraid to venture out in the world without firearms. Most of our politicians are yellow bastards who do what NRA members tell them. That’s why our children are murdered.    ...

  I arrive home from a day on the reservation and notice my clothes smell of smoke. Then I remember the three homeless men sitting by a fire. Neda had asked the Senior Center to pack extra lunches - salmon, boiled potatoes, broccoli - then we drove to the men's camp to give them the food....

Kesey's first book, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, is written in a more relaxed traditional style, but he must have been on LSD too long when he wrote SOMETIMES A GREAT NOTION, because he's everywhere, even in a dog's head. (Tolstoy did that too. It's okay; I've been there too.) It all happens in...
