I hope everyone had a Happy Easter. I did until the heart-breaking news out of Sri-Lanka broke. At present there is no comment that I could make about the incident that would not be outright hateful, so I'll hold my tongue and offer up my sorrow-laden prayers until my usual Catholic stoicism re-asserts itself. In … Continue reading Breaking Fast
There are very few things I miss about New York City. The Strand Bookstore numbers high among them. It wold be a crime against bibliophiles if the bookstore went bust because of bureaucratic busy-bodying. https://youtu.be/kZoIlz2y4Cw
“Let’s be joyful and courageous at least in the higher part of our souls, in the midst of the trials the Lord gives us, as The Angel who foretold the Birth of Our Little Savior and Lord, proclaims it singing and sings proclaiming joy, peace and happiness to men of good-will, so that nobody can say … Continue reading A Merry Christmas To All!
Today is the last day to download a FREE copy of my latest novel from Kindle. https://read.amazon.com/kp/embed?linkCode=kpd&ref_=k4w_oembed_YcBzA27HbefgIb&asin=B07K2T87C3&tag=kpembed-20&amazonDeviceType=A2CLFWBIMVSE9N&from=Bookcard&preview=newtab
Censorship Need Not Become The New Normal!
Now this is worth putting out the call to action for.
USMCA, the purported replacement to NAFTA, includes some provisions that spell bad news for anyone on the Internet with dissenting opinions to those who run the big tech companies.

President Trump hailed the trade agreement he signed with Mexico and Canada last week as “great for all our countries.” Perhaps he doesn’t know that the NAFTA-replacing trade agreement, USMCA, gives tech giants in Silicon Valley a special legal privilege to censor his own supporters — and anyone else they find “objectionable.”
Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube all engaged in pre-election censorship against Republicans and Trump supporters. Yet they’ve managed to sneak a liability protection into President Trump’s trade bill that would make it even easier for them to censor their own users.

This story from Reuters gave me a fit of the giggles. It would appear that amazon is scrapping its Artificial Intelligence Human Resource gizmo because the machine mind is sexist! To be fair, amazon lists other problems with the AI, but its preference for male workers is most definitely the story's lede. One is left wondering whether the machine … Continue reading AI Promotes Patriarchy!

Have you got a Sword and Sorcery Tale collecting dust like a long-dead, mad wizard’s scroll in a damp and dark dungeon?
Millhaven Press will take a gander at it…
Millhaven Press is looking for one more Heroic Sword & Sorcery Tale to complete an anthology due out in winter 2018/Spring 2019.
The story should be 10,000+ words.
The theme is generalized and should be taken as a jumping off point. We want each story to embrace the works of Robert E. Howard and others, but not mimic them. We want a creative approach to the genre.
Compensation is 20% of net sales plus a free contributor copy.
