I’ve been very busy, and using social media more than the website to update readers, but decided I should drop by here and leave a few notes… Most recent book: The 10th Anniversary edition of Wings of Creation came out this spring. I love the cover! These editions are put out by Wordfire Press, and are re-releases with a little love added to clean up prose, but no change in story. Most important, the fourth and final book in the series, The Making War, is in late editing stages and will be out from Wordfire, hopefully this year. Most recent story: “Maybe the Monarchs” came out in B-cubed press’s “After the Orange.” I’m rather proud of this one – I’ve read it out loud a few times (at Orycon, Norwescon, and AWP), and gotten really positive comments. It’s a little sad. It’s a climate change story that could be a precursor to the world of Wilders and Keepers. Thanks for dropping by…..
Wow, this really is beautiful. An amazing find of an essay by the 13-year-old Ruth Bader, from Brooklyn 1946, w/words that still resonate powerfully today: https://twitter.com/RuthanneDeutsch/status/1307329522312916994
Beautiful remembrance. https://reason.com/2020/09/18/rbg-r-i-p/?fbclid=IwAR3vdeuTplyCpZgk4E5nkCkRZn2nMDa9yO1fYBwUJInGrJ9AytZyhP2cQAo
We have lost a giant in the history of our nation with the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
It is heartbreaking that in her final moments she was, as are many others, preoccupied with what would happen after her passing.
I want to make one thing clear: we can, and must, fight. https://twitter.com/nprpolitics/status/1307101950115229696
Just days before her death, as her strength waned, Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that i I will not be replaced until a new president is installed." https://trib.al/2q7vg0g
You do not need to, nor should you, ignore your fears - there is plenty to be afraid of - but we have possibilities before us.
We can win, we can succeed, but we cannot do it alone. We will need the people.
We must get to work.
Everyone has something to give.
