… Slouches toward Burque to be born?
Bubonicon 44, of course!
And by “rough beast,” I naturally mean this entirely adorable Mayan Perry Rodent!
Impending Apocalypse never looked so cute!
I love that image! I wish it were on our official tee-shirt. I want it on everything.
Since I can’t find a credit, I can but attribute it to [...]
Tonight, August 5th 2011, I’ll be telling the Albuquerque Science Fiction Society all about my epic fantasy novel THE DINOSAUR LORDS, coming from Tor in early 2013, and the ensuing trilogy.
I don’t want to overload you with Emma Dog. (I know – too late.)
But since she’s also like the biggest single draw for the blog, I’m going to anyway. Plus she did something else which her fond and foolish Daddy found adorable. So, deal.
Friday night was the annual ASFS December Dessert Cook-Off Meeting. And I [...]
I really intended to walk Emma Dog today. Even though I walked four miles last night with her Uncle Joe – which I’m pretty sure is the farthest I’ve walked since I got sprung. I felt up for it. Would’ve made it three days in a row, and eight miles in three days. Definite progress.

Albuquerque Science Fiction Society Christmas meeting features Dessert Cook-Off and FRANZ KAFKA’S IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE. Plus, bonus holiday episode of TMI Theater.

He was still upstaged by a special guest: he and his wife Gail brought Skippyjon, The Halloween Chihuahua. Who’s well-behaved, personable, and fearfully cute, and so was a huge hit.

That’s not code or a euphemism or anything. Sorry. I just hate puzzles.
Screw you, Sudoku, and the horse you rode in on.
Why that should be I’ve no damned idea. In general I really love figuring things out. But as for puzzles per se, I suppose my attitude is, Oh, fucking get on with it.
I just learned by email that Jack Speer died overnight.
Jack was a member of First Fandom – the pioneers! – a mainstay of the Albuquerque Science Fiction Society, and a friend. He and his wife Ruth, who survives him, played gracious hosts to many a pleasant pre-Bubonicon party.
Sad news. Fandom in general and our Albuquerque [...]
