Well finally got to updating the counters for the WIP.  And I am now feeling the main issue that faces every writer with a day job, time.  There just isn’t enough of it.  Once you take time for commuting, writing, taking care of the animals and the day job itself, there’s barely a couple hours […]

So awesome it is scary. . .

Security asshats on parade.

| January 22, 2010

There is a certain class of people who combine stupidity, deep-seated insecurity with a pathological need to control.  The worst place to put these people is in a position where they are charged with keeping people safe. Case in point: We have a report (found here) of an unnamed vice principal at Millennial Tech Magnet […]

Of course the big story is Joe Kennedy’s loss in Mass.

| January 20, 2010

I’m not up for much of a blog post for reasons I won’t go into, but since I opine on politics, and the Massachusetts senate race is probably the biggest political story for this half of 2010, I should probably make a comment about it. To every Republican and Democrat out there: get over yourselves.  […]

Grand Decay. . .

| January 15, 2010

Browsing around the interwebs I’ve come across some cool galleries of modern ruins. These pictures have a weight to them in times like these, perhaps a glimpse into a common future. One wonders what Dubai might look like in a dozen years.

Truffle Update

| January 13, 2010

Truffles is still having a hard time. We’re still swimming her 3 days a week, but she’s still unable to walk on her own. All the vets we’ve talked to have given up on a diagnosis so we have no clue what’s up with her. However, we’ve made a bit of a discovery. If we […]

Cool review of Wolfbreed

| January 8, 2010

Thought I’d point this out on the blog proper. At the Blood of the Muse there’s a cool review of Wolfbreed which is not just cool because he liked the book, it’s also cool because of the meta-commentary about werewolves in general being the red-headed stepchild of classic monsters. Werewolves. They are like the annoying […]

And then there was one. . .

| January 6, 2010

I’m currently working on Messiah, which is not only the last volume of the Apotheosis Trilogy, it is also quite possibly going to be the capstone on my entire Moreau/Hostile Takeover universe.  I won’t say it will be the last book in that universe (never say never) but it is likely to be the last […]
