Aquarius at Noonday

An essay I posted yesterday: Aquarius at Noonday. An observation born of my experience as a physics & math teacher; as previously a process, device, manufacturing and product engineer. I consider myself -- a man of a 'certain age' -- one of Sputnik's Children. My fear is this generation's Sputnik moment may be [to use a track metaphor] after the gun, 40 meters to the rear of the rest of the…

Its light reaches through galaxies

It illuminates all dark places

I ramble through dark despair

Striving to reach its glow

Darkness of fear blinds me

But its brilliance lights my way…

Race Matters: Showing Race or Racial Issues Is Important

Skinwalker So, I like it when an author puts race in front of my eyes.  I enjoy visualizing what a character looks like, race and all.  When it's done correctly, the experience can deepen the reader's relationship with the character.  There are some people who say that showing race in this way is racist.  They enjoy reading or writing raceless, race free, or characters of color with little or no physical description. I contend that this approach is racist. …

On his face a pair of circular lens glasses that had a hard time accommodating his nervous facial expressions.

On the screen appeared five men whose faces completely shrouded in darkness and were only represented by the… Continue

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
