 Greetings Everyone!

My second book - Aliens, Robots & Virtual Reality Idols in the Science Fiction of H.P Lovecraft, Isaac Asimov and William Gibson - has just been reviewed in the prestigious DePauw University journal Science Fiction Studies by E. Mariah Spencer, Vol 48, No. 3 (November 2021), pp. 600-604.

Please use the link below & then log into the JSTOR digital database to access the review. 

Professor Spencer flatters me by referring to my “masterful storytelling ability” & recognizes that, in the final analysis, the readers of my book (and of the remarkable works of Lovecraft, Asimov & Gibson) must come up with their own interpretations of what an “alien” really is- and perhaps more importantly, decide how the genuinely alien entity differs from entities linked to specific “markers of otherness” – such as ethnicity, gender, race, disability & age- all of which are, in my view, merely human-centric associations.

Best wishes to all of you!

November 3, 2021

Greetings Everyone!  

Autumn continues.  The skies orange and ash gray at twilight; the  leaves brown, yellow & red as they fall from the trees; all working their magic as the season declines & moves towards winter. 

This is the perfect time to check out my two books!  They are essential reading for everyone who is an autumn person & a fan of the great New England horror writer H. P. Lovecraft.

And, of course, for readers who like science fiction, horror & fantasy literature.
