Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,

Ten fantasy novels for less than $30. Yup, fabulous fantasy reading
for under $3 per book. Go for it now! Winter days need excitment
like these omnibuses.
Still working to get programs from XP to Win 7 machine. Futility
abounds. Many of my most useful programs won't work in Win 7.
I am almost tempted to keep working on the old machine but the
need for updated online security pushes me toward the new machine.
But this is a red herring in some ways to explain why I haven't
been working as hard as I should. Still got chapts to go on the
space opera. Only got a few pages done yesterday. Have a new project
writing a biography. Ghosting it, I am, but the pay is very good.
And I need to get in touch with a comics guy about work there.
I had thought to hear earlier this month and haven't. Lots to
do, no willpower to do it. This is not a good way to bounce into
A new title, part of the Blaze! western series, will be released
in March. Six-gun Wedding by Jackson Lowry attempts to
fill the void left by the demise announced a year ago of all the
adult western series. The ultimate, final, that's all folks, Jake
Logan was in November, Slocum's
Silver Burden. Check it out, then look up the new kid
on the block, Blaze!
on Amazon. The first 3 series titles by western writers you've
known and loved over the years.
Xmas tree comes down by Twelfth Night. Many presents unopened
waiting for my son to visit in a few days. So, in a way, Christmas
will start the New Year. Lots of parties (3 in one week is a lot
for me, at least) and devoured too much good food at every one
of them. Not a NY's resolution--ongoing. Lose at least 10 lbs.
After Twelfth Night it will be easier. Time then to focus on work,
too. Strange how food and work go hand in hand. The cats tell
me that, too.
Is there anyone out there familiar with Zen cart? Drop me a line.
Theatrical movies, none. Inherent Vice might open in town
in a couple weeks. Nothing else of real interest.

It's the small things in life... Or at least the 140 character
of Steam and Rust! Great news. ESR was part of a Kickstarter
project and is featured as a scenario in a RPG from Lester Smith.
Steve Sullivan did great work getting it ready to go. Check out
his ESR novel Heart
of Steam and Rust.
My e-books on the catalog
page. Great stuff. Really.
iPad viewing: Did not much like Broadchurch. The Brits
do love their pedophiles. I don't and the ending was truly bleak.
Marco Polo kinda sucked. They should either have gotten
an actor for the title role or written him some decent dialog.
Kublai Khan and the Chancellor were the best characters, and they
were the bad guys. Marco was superfluous to their dealings.
iPad reading: A
Backed up John by Michael McAfee, the artist who did the Jade
Demons cover for me above. A first novel.
Regular cable stuff: The new Librarians is still fun but
not in the same way the movies were. The group dynamic is still
off. The thief and the mercenary are the weakest links, the thief
just not fitting in at all for me.
Here's wishing everyone a most prosperous and healthy 2015.
