Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,
Robert E. Vardeman proprietor
Oddities and ends? Some not so ending, others, yes. A bit of
thriller/spy action in the old Baroness vein. Creepy horror/mystery.
And the Slocum book is the next to last one I did. The series
is coming to an end (with Slocum's Silver Burden). I suspect the
print editions will wither and die but the ebooks will live on.
If you are a dead tree fan, step right up while the getting's
good. They're worth it.
Not sure where the week went. Almost done with the weird western.
The closer to the end I get, the less I like the title. That has
to be changed. And Don Juan and Miguel got back on the final story
I did for them, wanting a new scene. More action! More derring-do!
I'll do it! Other than this, reading and note taking for my talk
on weird westerns at the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium has taken
up my time.
By this time next week, I should know if either of my books up
for consideration for the AZ-NM Book Awards made the final cut.
Is there anyone out there familiar with Zen cart? Drop me a line.
This afternoon I begin the submissions for the Jade Demons Quartet
on Smashwords and Kindle.
Theatrical movies: A Walk Among the Tombstones is on tap

A tour of Japan through the eyes of a woman samurai. Not to be
missed. Check out her story in the current Daily
My e-books on the catalog
page. Great stuff. Really.
iPad viewing: Midsommer Murders finished. Rewatched Grosse
Pointe Blank because it's funny and then tried another John
Cusack movie, The Factory, and remembered 15% of the way
into it I had seen this before and pretty much hated it. Which
sums up most of Cusack's later movies. He started out with some
classics. You owe it to yourself to see Better Off Dead
if you haven't.
iPad reading: A quarter of the way into Jeff Shaara's The
Last Man. Some stylistic glitches that make me cringe but
a solid book.
Regular cable stuff: Hell On Wheels. Setting up for new
bloodbath. I knew The Swede couldn't be written out. What a great
bad guy, who seems destined to be Brigham Young's right hand man
(A Lamb of God?) Bohannon is putting on his six-gun again to spring
the railroad crew from jail. Even Durant got tossed in for beating
to death a deputy marshal who tried to kill him. This week starts
a lot of my usual shows. Castle and NCIS. In a couple,
Arrow. Newcomer Gotham gets a look but likely nothing
more. I should be writing.
