Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,
Robert E. Vardeman proprietor
An exciting mixture this week. A thriller in the tradition of
The Baroness. Then some weird western horror zombie action--3
books for less than $1. Wrapping up the banner is a LitRPG book
complete with killer clowns, creepy bad guys using a bone laser
and...check it out and see for yourself!
First off, thanks to all of you who scarfed up a few dollars
for the steampunk story bundle. You got a great deal. I'm working
my way through Kevin Anderson's Clockwork Angels right
now and looking forward to other titles I hadn't read yet. Enjoy!
Wild Wild West Con 9 was a real treat this year. In addition
to all the stuff I like so much (the Apocalypse Later film fest
was great, as usual) I had the chance to talk to the headliner
musical Italian steampunk group, Poison Garden. Pleasant folks,
dedicated to their music and people I wouldn't mind having as
friends. They came in from Rome the day before and left immediately
after, barely getting home before Italy shut down all travel.
I listened to their first album, A Victorian Carol on the
drive home. Look for their new release, Army of Dreamers
soon. WWWC9 was the world premier of the songs there, btw.
Not a lot to say about the Kung Flu. Stay safe. Sort of strange
hearing how hard it is for others to stay home (not going to work
to earn money aside--I'm talking the psychology of going stir
crazy) when it seems like just another day to me. Be good to restaurants
and their workers. They operate on a razor thin margin and I fear
many of the indie restaurants will go under.
Speaking of such dire straits, the AZ Ren Faire closed 2 weeks
early. Many of the performers make all their yearly money in 8
weeks and early closure will slice off 10% or more. One musical
artist, harp player Sarah
Mullen Rua, is in this category. Go to her Patreon site and
check out all the great stuff there and help her and her family
stay afloat for another year.
Speaking of Patreon, I am going to post some nifty stuff there
myself. A chapter of an unpublished fantasy on Monday, new sf
chapter on Wednesday and a short story you might not have seen
on Friday. Free for a couple weeks, then please sign on and help
me publish on. Bob
Engineering Infinity. The Dust of Stars is done
and I am already working on book 2 in the series, Shatter Time.
Theatrical movies: Portrait of A Woman on Fire was well done.
Not exactly the ending I expected (I would have swapped the final
two scenes and given it a more upbeat feel). But well acted and
lovely to watch. Chances of seeing anything in a theater any time
soon are appreoaching zero, especially since Mulan has
Streaming: Finishing off the fluffy Republic of Doyle.
