July 4     Origins     At the root of it all is darkness.  The place from which I grow, the structure that holds me fiercely upright, is pressed on all sides by dirt.  When I get right down to it the ethereal leaves and twigs even the branches, do not exist, except for...

I just got back from Columbus after a great Origins convention weekend, and as promised I wanted to post a couple of my thoughts before I head off again for a couple of days with the family (and in between writing projects on top of that)--and also update you on a cool new Kickstarter I'm...

Just a quick post to note that I'm on my way to Columbus, Ohio for the Origins convention, which has now become the unofficial beginning of summer for me--kind of like a smaller, quieter GenCon, but with lots of the same great features (great writers, many of them good friends, interesting panel...

  This is the sort of adventure movie that I'm usually drooling over, the missus simply tolerating and along for the ride. This time, as the popcorn and nachos disappeared, she leaned over and whispered, "I really like this!" It's a Ridley Scott flick, and by the time of the missus...

November 24         Jet Lagging     Baby’s feet kick in the isle and we are all cocooned in our seats.  The movies play and earphones dangle in our ears. We are jetting across the country in our own little worlds.  Landing can not happen soon enough for me,...

Mind you, I still want to see the movie. It looks to be well done and entertaining (and exciting). And all the denouncing it gets is - let's face it - publicity for the film itself. But when the heir to the royal throne of Elizabeth I takes note, take note we should. It's become a family affair....
