The Walking Dead Featured Posture

Lockdown and The Walking Dead

Zombies are not my thing. As a child, I avoided the undead in my Dungeons & Dragons world for power-hungry humans, elves, or orcs. Evil is not mindless and faceless. It does not rise from the dead, but forms in the living. Because zombies do not interest me, I have not read The Walking De…
Cleaning the Capitol Building after the January 6, 2021 Insurrection

Mellowed links and The Vote

With the impeachment of Donald J. Trump behind us, it is time for reflection on the events of the last month. The impeachment vote of February 13, 2021, was a powerful reminder that American’s want change. Fifty-seven Senators, a clear majority, voted to convict Donald Trump.

Endurance and The Coronavirus

With 2020 behind us I thought it important to start my YouTube Channel with Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage. In the age of COVID-19 and SARS-Covi-2 the fact that everyone on the Endurance survived, is important.

Smoking and January 6, 2021

The Republican insurrectionist party had a chance to stop January 6, 2021 on February 5, 2020. When they voted to acquit of Donald J. Trump of trying to rig the election. They blew smoke in America’s face rather than stand bravely behind their oaths and defend the Constitution.

A New Glossary

The Explorers adds two new species to The Fundamentals Universe. That means two new cultures with unique languages and backgrounds. Even I need a reference to keep up, or at least be consistent. So thanks to Yootheme, a custom post type, and some custom fields, here is an enhanced glossary to The…

Putting an End to Hibernation in Sci-Fi

Galaxy crossing science fiction space operas are pure fantasy. Sure, we call them science fiction because they have spaceships and plasma rifles, but there is little science in even the most hard sci-fi stories. The term “hard science fiction” is rather new. When Arthur C. Clarke was writing his …

The Single Best What is a Virus Video

After finishing my first episode of TWiV, I realized that I needed a refresher course on viruses. I want to know the basics, without taking biology again. YouTube is both a cesspool, a library, and my first stop when researching a subject. I have learned to look for older videos YouTube Creators …
Brave New World Cover

Theme in a Brave New World of Coronavirus

I try not to think about theme when I am writing. Falling in that pit is the quickest way to lose a story. In a literature class you were told that theme is what the author is trying to convey, a central idea or meaning to the story. In rare exceptions, that might be true. In truth, authors have…

The Fundamentals

HG Wells’s The War of the Worlds introduced Earth to alien invasions. But nothing has prepared humanity for an eusocial, space adapted, species that can clone anything with DNA. The Fundamentals Universe starts here.

The Fundamentals Universe

The following short story was not cut from The Fundamentals, but it is missing. This is Keith’s and Erin’s first meeting told from Keith’s point of view. When editing the final version of The Fundamentals I found that I had a few chapters told from minor character viewpoints. That was important f…
The Living Fire, Orahi in space
A fire consumed the ship. A fire that burned like fire on Earth. It billowed black and white smoke that stretched up, or at least away, from the ship. Tongues of orange and black flame whipped around as if caught in a strong wind, but when they stretched away from the ship they didn’t extinguish …
Thanksgiving is an American holiday. Other cultures have harvest celebrations, but the tone of an American Thanksgiving is unique to history. I drafted this essay after the September 11 terrorist attack, while the Iraq war was still young, and the Afghanistan conflict had failed to capture or ki…
Shuttle launch from the New Mexico launch tower.
“EC Whores!” A yell from the darkness behind the stage. A man covered in black clothes and a ski mask ran on stage. A narrow beam of red shot from his hand. It cut up and across the man who won the lottery. The man’s mouth fell open, then the top of him, above his waist, slid on the slope that wa…
Ryan Jameson's The Terra Channel Logo
The captain took Viper by his central pole and pushed him out of the way. “I get enough geekery on my ship,” she said. “But I will give you a sit-down, exclusive of the other EC One reporters when the Santa Maria is underway.” “I am not with EC One, Captain. I am with The Terra Channel, and I do…
