Happy Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July to all my American readers! Enjoy the holiday.


Paint The Force Red is out

My newest ebook, Paint The Force Red, is now released on Kindle. It can be purchased here.

I’ll admit this “e-pamphlet” was one of the most challenging to write. While my past ebooks have been written solely on my own whim, this was intended as a (somewhat) serious guide. I struggled with how much to add, and how rigid I should be. In the end, I settled on a cheap, brief guide to hopefully guide readers with the basics-after all, every country is different.

So, enjoy.

It’s June

Well, June has arrived, and so has the heat. (And worse, the humidity. Ugh.)

So between that and being busy with a variety of things, I may not blog as often as I have been “normally.” but I’ll still try.

My First Post On Sea Lion Press

I’m delighted to now be a contributor to the Sea Lion Press blog. My first article is a review of an alternate history WWIII thriller, Harvey Black’s The Red Effect. Regrettably, it contained both of my big pet peeves for the genre: Too much perspective hopping and too long of an intro to a foregone event.

The post can be seen here.

The Wail Rid I Row Project

So, now I have time to put together something that I’ve wanted to do for a while. Namely, start up an anthology of World War III fiction. The details can be viewed on my secondary blog devoted specifically to it, the Wail Rid I Row Project.

(Wail Rid I Row is an anagram of World War III.)

This is a passion project, everything will be free. I’ve been too critical for my own good-I want to help make fiction, not destroy it. I have modest expectations, but you never know.

Hyper cup phone

Dr. Mortimer Lafayette Blake Gordon had a hundred million eyes watching him.

“Good morning, my friends and brothers. Today, I am proud to announce the newest product from Dr. Gordons’ Communication Projects. This is the Dr. Gordon’s Hyper Cup Phone.

The phone can be cupped in your hand with greater ease than the Dr. Gordon’s Super Cup Phone or those available from rival phone firms. It has faster processing power than the Dr. Gordon’s Super Cup Phone. It is second to none.”

Dr. Gordon took a breath. The TV cameras saw.

“And, as always, the Dr. Gordon’s Hyper Cup Phone can attach with a pair of Dr Gordon’s Earphones to all past and present Dr. Gordon’s Weed Trimmers.”
