|Jan. 22||On my tenth year anniversary of photographing CWC releases, Robyn Graboski released Athena, a juvenile bald eagle, an eagle particularly eager to be outdoors once again.
For reference, here is a list of CWC releases that I've photographed the past ten years.
|10||The November issue of Electric Spec includes my SF story "Bliss," a happy tale of an alcoholic planet.
I've more details about the story in my bibliography.
|I have added two blog posts:
A sign of spring? A January robin.
A Sunday walk in the game land: with nature photos.
|4||I've come back with a new blog post that has links to two of my published stories and a pair of Cooper's hawk photos.
||The fall issue of Samjoko Magazine is now live and, happily, includes a story of mine in it, "A Light in the Forest."
That is a fine reason to bring my bibliography up to date.
||Over the past week, I've added three new posts to my blog:
Today I published five photos of a hedgehog (the first time I have ever seen one).
On Thursday, I considered a bird identification challenge: A view to a preen.
Although there are bluebirds of happiness, bluebirds also enjoy having fun.
||After an interval of laziness and the transfer of servers (at Hub), I've returned to my blog:
Yes, at last, excerpts from the first reviews of my new fantasy novel Thora's Dagger.
Two days earlier, I posted nature photos from my walk on Sunday.
||More posts from my blog:
A ruby-throated hummingbird makes a discovery.
Photos from my Sunday walk.
A long sequence covering the progression of a monarch emerging from his chrysalis and being released to butterfly glory.
||Recent blog posts:
A red squirrel
Excerpts from Gilded Basilisk reviews
A ruby-throated hummingbird
||Guess what! I've started a blog (perhaps 15 years or so everything else has had one. My posts will be an expansion of what I have over here, such as a post on a recent snowberry clearwing.||
||How can anyone resist looking at or photographing a hummingbird moth that is both beautiful and fascinating?||In story news, The Gilded Basilisk has received a splendid new review at Amazon.||
||Here is a 30-second video promo for my new fantasy novel, Thora's Dagger.||Odd news: It has come to my attention that browsers dating from 2021 or more recent can no longer play Flash video. This affects my various games as well as other features. I'll try to update everything over the next few weeks.||
||Here's a video of my reading the first chapter from Thora's Dagger.||
||Revisiting the spicebush swallowtail (a large butterfly).||
||Life can move along very swiftly. My fantasy novel Thora's Dagger is available at ReAnimus Press and Amazon. And it will arrive at other online shops too very soon.||
||Time for a bumblebee celebration. First there is the striking tricolored bumblebee. Second, kindly consider the fuzzy perplexing bumblebee.||I've returned proof for both the print and ebook versions of Thora's Dagger. I expect both to ready any day now.||
||Trouble on the pond.||
||This has been a very good spring for seeing Baltimore orioles.||Last week I sent the completed manuscript of Thora's Dagger to my publisher, ReAnimus Press. It won't be long now . . .||
