Well, since the villain in my book is an insane […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2072: During my travels, I’ve spent a lot of time in the copilot’s seat on tiny airplanes. I don’t know how to fly, but I’ve picked up some pointers by watching. If the pilot suddenly died, I could probably at least crash the airplane with style. Here’s one of my […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2071: Yay! I have finished writing my new science fiction comedy novel (or at least I have it ready for an editor). The book even has a title: Time is Irreverent. Yesterday, I mailed out the first copy of the manuscript, and I let Martyman check it out before I […]
