Steve Van Beek, prominent local writer, film-maker and river specialist has just sent me the following encouragement to get off my lazy butt (interview with Philip K. Dick’s daughter) and do more to promote my series of darkly comic futuristic novels (underway) that will clarify most important features of reality in rippingly entertaining fashion. (Some opinion has it that I write better novels than I do blurbs.) Certainly, Philip K. Dick is one of the most successful science-fiction writers there ever was, never mind much of this success has come post-humously, which is rarely ideal from the writer’s point of view.
Meanwhile, Bill the Mathematician sends me advice on making a million dollars from your blog. This is the same Bill the Mathematician who once suffered a broken back without noticing, and it isn’t uncommon to find him with tongue in cheek. Whatever. I still have some way to go with this million bucks. Patience, eh?
Poll. This post establishes a personal record number of embedded links. Is that bringing me closer to my $1 million, or does that merely irritate visitors? (Visitors? What visitors?)
