Ron Collins and his Science Fiction

  I was fortunate to interview Ron Collins recently, as part of the science fiction month here on the blog, to celebrate the launch of New Star Rising (yesterday!).

The GOOD Things About 2016

I thought the passing of Carrie Fisher was really the topper of the year, but no -- her mother, Debbie Reynolds, passed the very next day. Well before Carrie Fisher's death, people were already saying what a horrible year 2016 had been for unexpected deaths of celebrities, unexpected political outcomes, depressed sales, and much more.  My
