Yeah. Uh. February got way more exciting than it was supposed to be.The Russian invasion of Ukraine has eaten up a lot of my attention, understandably.I have relatively little commentary to make as a science fiction author of occasional military SF, given that I write about fiction, but I will offer a reminder that war… Continue reading Frigging February
A brand new season begins. My idiosyncratic calendar of three seasons a year has tipped over into spring – which I, personally, find a surprise given how cold it’s been over my way. Spring is all about new growth and bringing things out of dormancy to full bloom, however, and that is definitely on the… Continue reading Jaunting into January
Hello, at the dawn of 2022.

One of those moments of… Continue reading October Phantoms

Change is the… Continue reading September to September – A year of Aconite Braid
Life has changed. It is very, very difficult to know how to talk about or enumerate all those changes – my last patreons only post goes into it – but even if my circumstances have changed, and continue to change while I find out what my new normal looks like, I’m managing to work on… Continue reading Long days of August
