Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,
Robert E. Vardeman proprietor
Lots of stuff this week. The Cenotaph Road series is finally
completed. Above is book #6 in the series, the grand finale. Next
is the first book in the eXBureau series. I am plotting
book #3 as you sit and read this. Finally, what I consider my
best western, a rootin' tootin' shoot 'em up with artist Charles
Russell. For 99cents you get not only my (Jackson Lowry's) novel
but 7 others. That's not even two bits a book, the price when

Big news. Biggest news. Yuuuge news. The Western Fictioneers
have selected a 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award winner. I was
stunned to see my face staring back from the top of that page.
Many thanks to Bill, James, Livia and all the rest who honored

Ford Fargo (and maybe others) thank you from the bottom of their

Fed up about now. The landscapers did the rock replacement in
the front and it looks good. But, always but, you know? But it's
been over 6 weeks and the hedge trimming, trees and weeds remain
where they were, ie untouched. With the rain we've had, they proliferate.
I am not happy about the massive delay.
Theatrical movies: None, but I am thinking about Logan
at the dollar theater (which is now, inexplicably, $1.23) Too
many people with decent taste have said the followup for Prometheus
(which I didn't like) is not very good. And coming up Thursday
night (5-27, the 40th anniversary of Star Wars) Scott Phillips
is hosting a showing of the movie 5-27-77 about a kid film
maker and how the original (and still best) of the SW movies changed
his life. I'm anxious to see this one. May not be great but looks

iPad viewing: Nothing. Been reading instead.
iPad reading: Started a pulp adventure in the Lazarus Gray series
and quit on it, at least for a while. Went to Will Murray's Pat
Savage book and am enjoying it. Doc Savage book next up.
iPad listening: Given up on Pandora (which might be on the sales
block, being bought by SiriusXM) and listening to Spotify now.
