Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,
Robert E. Vardeman proprietor
For those finding my site because of Bubonicon, here are some
goodies. A fantasy, thrilling sf, and steamy steampunk. Tidbits
for your enjoyment. Sample, buy, enjoy!
Yes, Bubonicon is a week off. As I write this, it will be almost
over. My (future) time flies. I have close to 8 hrs worth of programming,
so be sure to stop by and say howdy along the way. The mass autographing
is always a good place since everyone's in the big ballroom. I'll
be there with Scott Phillips and Sarah Barstch and who knows who
else? We'll be selling our wares, as they say. I have several
new titles, including Straight Outta Tombstone, Rockets
Red Glare, Weird Menace 1, the Punished trilogy
of weird westerns, and who knows what oldies but goodies.
Be sure to ask me about Martin Cameron's and my launch of a penny
Major Arcanium Gazette. A "megazine" as it were
of serials, steampunk, f&sf, silliness and superb artwork.
iPad reading: Started Jim Butcher's Academe: Alera Codex 2.
Love the concept, great writing and characters, and sets off depth
charges in my mind of things to do and ways to do them.
Theatrical movies: Atomic Blonde was what I expected and
I enjoyed it for all that. Sort of a toned down female John
Wick. Meaning the body count was nowhere near as high, but
still enjoyable for watching Charlize Theron go through the paces.
A small double twist at the end. Thinking back, what I thought
was the twist couldn't have been. So, a mild surprise. Coming
up? Nothing until the, gulp, Bladerunner sequel.

It's the small things in life... Or at least the 140 character
Newer stuff about something.
My e-books on the catalog
page. Great stuff.
iPad viewing: Watched Dirk Gently's Holistic etc and did
not much like it. I never read the books and if the series is
anything like the video, no need to waste my time.

and mysteries and...)
Howabout some of that steampunk I've been going on about? Here's
the first episode of Millard Fillmore,
Master of Steam. Note: this is only the text. You want
to get the whole enchilada with Martin Cameron's illos. For free,
as a sample, then we ask you subscribe via Patreon
