Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,
Robert E. Vardeman proprietor

Shorter stories this time around, the last one with a twist--you can pick who died and whodunnit. Each section is different.

Finished the latest western project, all 95k words of it, and am launching into a brand new one due by the first of the year. Busy, busy, you betcha. Always difficult this time of year because so much Xmasy stuff intrudes, whether I want it to or not. But parties are fun and the only chance I have to see many people more than once a year.

Pirates of the Golden West in all its steampunk glory surges along. There is a tentative March 1 deadline for getting this out to see the light of day. That is especially nice because I hope to again go to WildWestCon over in Tucson. I had a lot of fun last time around, and this time one of the musical groups is Cog Is Dead.

Theatrical movies: The new Jack Reacher movie was meh. Not even good chase scenes and Tom Cruise is getting too long of tooth to make the fight scenes look good. OTOH, I saw Doctor Strange in 3D. One of the few movies that you really should spend the extra bucks to see it that way. I was even considering seeing it in IMAX but it got bounced before I could. Fun movie. Also well done is Arrival. SF, sure, but I could make the case for paranormal. If I have the time, I'll take in the new not-a-Harry-Potter movie tomorrow.

Follow me on Twitter It's the small things in life... Or at least the 140 character ones.

Blog banter. New stuff after a long time about plotting a series arc.

My e-books on the catalog page. Great stuff.

iPad viewing: Night Manager with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie was good enough to stay to the end. Hell or High Water was a load of fun, especially picking out where in NM it was filmed (amidst mentions of my dad's stomping grounds of Olney and Archer City in Texas). Also picked up on a YouTube documentary on the Salton Sea. That is one weird place, or rather the people who live around it are weird.

iPad reading: Finished Scott Phillips' new Drink the Blood of Pete book. I'll let you know when it is for sale. Wonderfully funny stuff.

Dead tree reading: doing research for the next western with Chisolm Trail.

here for the finest in fantasy, sword & sorcery fiction (and sf and mysteries and...) And in the for-free mode on my store, look in on a story from along the Cenotaph Road. White Fur.
