Oops, I forgot about blog

Habits sure are easy to break. I have been writing a lot of short stories lately, and trying to edit my novel, and doing a lot of stuff for Lucent Dreaming. Let's see, what's been going on... I've written 22 stories this year so far, though some of them are very very short, and some …

how ‘the customer is always right’ culture is ruining our society

We've already seen that ravens and crows can understand death, solve complex puzzles, and remember human faces--now it seems they can plan for the future at least as well as a human child.
