Shift of substance

While my writing career flounders on I have decided to take this web page in a different direction. Prepping and Survival is a thought that is not too far back in my mind most of the time and it has been brought to my attention that while I think of many things, most people don’t….

WorldCon’s End 3 Sep 2013

Well the drive back from San Antonio sucked because people do not appear to know how to drive as part of a collective group. Got to meet Harry Turtledove and his wife and they appeared to be very nice people. Harry Turtledove is considered the Master of Alternate History Novels and I got to see…
