Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,

A magical collection of titles. Ten in all, in three omnibus
volumes. Heroic fantasy as you like it. Snag a copy (or all three!)
The short story weird western for Straight Outta Tombstone
is nearing completion. The first draft, at least. Odd feeling
on this since I am going to use it as an exemplar at a UNM talk
later this year. It feels as if someone is looking over my shoulder
as I work. Kinda creepy, actually. The story, too.
Judged two high school science fairs. One was good, one outstanding.
It renews my flagging faith in education seeing some of the exhibits,
thought and work put into the science. I never participated when
I was in high school, and don't feel the lack. I am glad to see
so many students with a head start (2 presented a project they
are doing as interns for the county water authority--it made me
feel better about how efficient the water treatment plant is).
Kudos to the students of Cleveland HS in Rio Rancho and Amy Biehl
HS in downtown Albuquerque. It was a pleasure talking to the students
and seeing how they presented their work. I am missing a chance
at SYJackson Elem since I'll be in Phoenix then, so next up will
be Manzano Day School in April.
Since my Traveller book is no longer available through the usual
channels, you can get a print copy (no ebook) from my store for
a limited time (until my stock runs out. $15 plus shipping.)
Theatrical movies, Revenant is on the slate for tomorrow.
I'm working this in around getting 2 windows repaired (considering
the cost of that repair, Revenant might be my last movie in a
very long while)

Revolution of Air and Rust.
My e-books on the catalog

iPad viewing: X-files, mostly in the fabulous 3rd season.
iPad reading: Almost finished with Joe Nasisse's Heretic
with 2 Lawrence Block books on deck.
Regular cable stuff: Arrow and Flash. The first
new X-files was terrible. I have been told the 2nd was
better. Lucifer was a retread of, of all things, Castle.
