One of the “lost” events of the civil rights struggle was the kidnapping, mutilation and murder of a 14 year old boy in the Mississippi delta for failing to follow the rules he, a visitor, was wholly ignorant of. Worse was the travesty of a trial afterwards. Simeon Wright is the cousin of that lost […]

Battlefield maps aren’t really difficult to come by, but getting one map with absolute brain breaking loads of the them from a source known for quality? Just about unheard of. Click here and drool.

Once upon a time, in a book far away the hero was not the cuddliest man for miles. It sounds like fiction, and in a way it is. Fiction reflects its germinative society. In fact it not only reflects that society, it is by necessity and evolution a symbiote of that society. Neither can endure healthily […]

Some reviews are bad, but ok because they just show the reader picked up the wrong book. I’ve done it, some books just aren’t for me and I can recognize this. I grok that not everyone thinks the same, or likes the same things. Romances, or novels that spend more wordage on emotional exploration than […]

I keep telling people an important thing about my blog: I am not a writer. Really. I don’t have that urge to create. If i blog I have something to say. If i don’t blog reason number one is that anything that occurs to me to write is likely to bore me to sleep before […]

Sorry for the long absence, nothing I’ve thought of related to writing and publishing has arrived in my head lately that wasn’t fit to peel paint and melt the steel or concrete behind it. I’ll be delving into politics today, with the reminder that I am not a member of any political party. One of […]

Yo! In the near future I’ll be doing a guest blog or two for one or two sites. Yes, yes this is amazing since I seem to barely remember I have my own blog. But what can I say, I was bribed. Speaking of which.* If you really want something to think about bribing me with, this is […]

The Essential Why?   People ask; What does it take to get published? It takes a number of things. One is certainly, luck. It is almost certainly the smallest factor, but present.
