Micropost & Announcement(s)

Okay, first an apology: Sorry I've dropped off the face of the Earth. I was doing so well in my resolution to post regularly & keep content active with weekly music reviews cross-posted from CONFRONT Magazine. Well, that didn't work out for several reasons which may or may not remedy themselves in the near future.

Second, I am discontinuing the weekly music review cross-posting. There is a link to CONFRONT over there on the lower left. Scroll's there. If you enjoy reading my reviews, you should read them over at the Magazine; hell, you should be reading CONFRONT Magazine anyway, if you're into music.

Third, I am studying the feasibility of moving up the pitch-launch for Oh Well, Whatever, Nevermind. Why? Because I feel the need to strike while the iron is hot. I do not, however, intend to be foolhardy about it.

Fourth, on the Omniverse front, The Aeons War is coming along nicely, the first 7 chapters now put to bed. Looking at the outline for the story I see several points of departure from the script, just as I had with Unearthing and Darkness. I'm actually going to dig up and post those outlines for you soon, so you can see just how the story changed from the original draft.

Finally, with the launch this week of a practical, linked-to-a-smart-device augmented reality headset, I've added another gadget to the long list of gizmos predicted when I first wrote The Unearthing, back in 1997:

The Augmented Reality Windshield
The Portable Console Computer
Headset Computing
Galileo Navigation System (Down to the friggin' NAME!)

So...not for nothing, but it might be a good time to start digging around in Northwest New Mexico...all I'm saying...

Okay, well that's about it for this time; I promise I'll try and update again, soon!
