And now we’re at the $40 milestone on Patreon!

At the $60/month level everybody starts to get regular (monthly) 500-word roleplaying game world material: Patrons will see it first, and everybody else a little later. Some of the 100 word short-short-short fiction stuff will appear here, too, but not reliably. Gotta entice new potential Patrons, after all.

Thanks to everybody who’s contributing, by the way. It’s… encouraging.

I have a new goal up on my Patreon account!

For those interested: at the $30/month level I’ll be writing a new hundred-word fiction story every week and sending it out to my patrons.  These will probably not end up here (although the occasional one might); I want to give my supporters a little something nice for themselves.  Well, theoretically something nice. I actually have to go out and write them, after all.

…Well, that last bit was creatively draining.

And, alas, not particularly easy to monetize.  Speaking of which: I really, really need to figure out how to get more interest in the Patreon thing.  I hesitate to do the obvious, which is to whine about it on Twitter until people take pity on me, but that may be what it takes.  Anybody out there successfully doing it that has tips to share?

Book of the Week: Lost Majority.

The Lost Majority: Why the Future of Government Is Up for Grabs – and Who Will Take It





I first did when it came out in 2012 (heck, Amazon quoted my review in the Review section); and its arguments were extremely helpful in letting me see early the warning signs that the 2006/8 Democratic coalition wasn’t up to snuff when it came to winning the 2014 electorate. Go read it, and remember: nothing in there says that what happened to the Democrats can’t happen to the GOP, either. It can. It probably will, too.

And so, adieu to Multiverse: Exploring Poul Anderson’s Worlds.
