Recommended Reading List: November, 2019

This month vanished almost instantly. Busy almost every night from the beginning of the month to the 15th, which cut into my reading time dramatically. But things slowed mid-month so I was able to read many good things. If you want to see the kinds of things that can eat into my leisure reading time, then look no farther than the Winter Holiday Spectacular, which […]

Business Musings: Die Hard (Licensing)

In July of 2018, Bruce Willis emphatically stated (at his Comedy Central roast) that the 1988 movie Die Hard, which made him an action star, “is not a Christmas movie.” It is, he said, “a goddamn Bruce Willis movie!” Well, yeah, Die Hard is a Bruce Willis movie because it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role of John McClane. Arnold Schwarzenegger turned the […]

A New Novel For The Holiday Season

I guess I went a bit overboard preparing for this holiday season. First, I did the Holiday Spectacular. You can sample some of the stories here and here, and if you like what you read, you can still subscribe, and get 35 stories. You won’t get them in 35 days now, since the parade of stories started on Thanksgiving, but you’ll get the bulk daily, […]

Business Musings: Raising The Bar

I haven’t had a lot of contemplation time in the past month, but I sure have a lot of notes about things I want to contemplate for this blog. One problem I have living in Las Vegas is that the weather is no longer a prompt for me. Back when I lived up north, the shortened days combined with the overcast, cold, and generally cruddy […]

Update For Fey Fans (With Some Bonus Diving)

I know, I know. I’ve been silent on the future of the Fey for a while, except to promise that, yes indeed, I plan to write about the third Place of Power. I had no real dates on that, and I don’t have exact dates now. What I do have is a writing schedule. I am finishing a big story arc in my Diving Universe. […]
