To Boldly Podcast…

As I have shamelessly plugged here before, your humble blogger also happens to be a writer of science fiction–which is kind of obvious, given the content of this website!  I’ve actually been doing it for the better part of twenty years, but I had to crank out eight whole novels before any publisher would touch me with a ten foot pole. Along the way I had a few adventures out in Hollywoodland, when I was invited ...

Opus Trek

Posted by:

Back when I was a kid, I begged my mom to buy me what I thought of as the Holy Grail of Star Trek reference books, The Star Trek Compendium by Allan Asherman.  Of course, it didn’t help that I told her that the name of the book was The Star Trek Emporium–but eventually, trusty mom figured it out and it picked the book up just in time for my birthday.  Unwrapping that puppy, I couldn’t wait to jump in and read about ...

The Numbers Game

Posted by:

My buddy Steve, an engineer in Colorado, sent me this interesting artlcle about firms that will–for a more than modest fee–propel your book to the top of the charts at Amazon and other online retailers, even if it’s just for a little while. One gets the notion from the tone of the piece that the whole thing is just a big scam, and I’d have to say that I agree. I mean, sure–I’ve followed my own numbers on Amazon ...
