Some Alternate History

I've long felt that we are all living in a continuum that diverged from the main timeline a long time ago. This piece about a hypothetical George W. Bush presidency proves it.


The Worst Future You Can Imagine

This past weekend, at Albacon 2004, I was part of a panel, with George Zebrowski, Susan de Guardiola, and Tony Lewis, on "the worst future you can imagine." After getting off the almost irresistible cheap shot, namely "another four years of Bush, and we may find out," I made the point that what I most feared was a future in which there was no turning back, no way to repair the damage or to rebuild.

Then I read the following in today's Guardian:

"An unexplained and unprecedented rise in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere two years running has raised fears that the world may be on the brink of runaway global warming."

For the rest of the story, go here.


Another Review

A review of Thumbprints is up at EDGEBoston.


Thumbprints in Agony Column

Rick Kleffel of The Agony Column covers the Golden Gryphon publication of Thumbprints in his news column. Worth checking out.


Two Announcements, and a Change

It's time to make these announcements more personal, and to address you who visit this site directly, instead of continuing to hide behind the third person. I won't actually be blogging, but will be posting whenever there's an announcement to make or a subject I feel like discussing. Your comments are always welcome, and I'll try to post more often.

My new collection, Thumbprints, is now out, and can be ordered from your favorite bookseller or directly from the publisher, Golden Gryphon Press. I will also be a guest at Albacon, to be held in Albany, New York on October 8-10, 2004.

Props to Glen and Jill Engel-Cox for setting up this site and for hosting it all these years!
