Here is a blog I hope you might find worth commenting on.
I live on Tatooine, in the anonymity of the poor. It's not an illusion, I just know how to do it and still live ok. Like having the garret room in the old tower in the wilderness, I live a simple reclusive life with a sweet old woman who cares for me. She

spells and encantations
which I cast upon the ether, in the hope of calling up a rain of silver. We don't see much of that here. Because I live by levitation, that is with no visible means of support, some have suspected I am either a crazy old
, or a fraud. They are more right than they know.
As a child, I lived on a green planet, with snow and fruit and fish. When I was eight, my Dad got assigned to a secret Fedbase out in the desert here to retro-engineer some

artist here these days, in Al Burqa, when he's not off running with the Lost Boys or the Pirates.
I was also impressed with that alien tech they were working on, so I went to
and learned to fly the hot X-Wing fighters that retro-engineering had led to. I did combat over the
jungles of Dagoba
as pilot of an anti-personnel land-skimmer. I liked the action, but I did something the Fed didn't like, got declared too liberal, and thrown out. I worked around while,
this old piece of junk or that, on both sides of the law, supplying remote outposts, running from the revenooers, whatever, then dropped out of the business of flying things. I hope I can say I have never done anything that ought to be called criminal, but you could say I've been an

Because of the powerful influence of organized religion on the governing of our country and the consequent fate of the world, and my hope to have a positive influence on that, I have a

I've been to that temple, and I know how the world looks from inside it. Whether as moralist authoritarian "social conservatives" or enraptured Apocalypse Crusaders they are unfortunately most dangerous to the rest of the world when most sincere.
As a working word-wizard, I have spun out a couple dozen books, and as I have worked with several co-authors, the range of subject matter is pretty broad. Those are available in paperback you can order from Amazon. Here is a link to those books if you're interested:
