Robert E. Vardeman proprietor
A trilogy of fine heroic fantasy of cosmic sweep and individual
daring and love.
The talk for the Southwest
Writers went well, I think. At least I was invited back later
on in 2014 (could have been because their sniper fell asleep while
I was talking and they wanted another shot at me, but we won't
go into that). I was quite pleased they invited me.
Still under the weather and heavy weather it has been, too. Hit
-16 on the other side of the mt a few days ago and predicted -1
here in town tomorrow. The heavy snow amounted to nothing. the
light dusting last night gave us black ice today. A good day to
stay inside and read. or work. Or clean. Or all the above. Best
to do the cleaning when I don't feel well since I don't want to
ruin the good times.
Christmas is coming down the tracks like a runaway freight train.
Nothing holds it back. Comes every year with the same screed against

branches. If I can find my work gloves, I will wear those while
decorating the tree. The tree is a family heirloom since 1958

is only cold. There, could be blizzardy.

TV this week. Dracula is tortured with his steampunk
Frankenstein contraption, walks in sunlight, then kills his lab
assistant to recover from the awfulness of sun exposure. Just
when you think he's not so bad.... Tonight is the first half of
Bonnie & Clyde and the reboot of The Mentalist. I caught part
of The Mob and didn't much like what I saw. And Arrow continues
