A failed concert at Altamont over 40 years ago where the Hell’s Angels rough up the crowd quickly fades into Ed Wood graveyard backdrops, classic Hammer film horror scenes, Platonic dialogues between Laverne and Shirley — shots ring out in the cold air on the campus of Kent State, just beyond some grassy knoll — meanwhile back at the office, the new DOS 3.1 diskettes have arrived, and someone is dialing out on a modem with PROCOMM … a mysterious figure is attempting to be the next Jim Morrison, preaching to the dot-commer kids at Height-Ashbury … meanwhile on Twitter, delayed Morse code messages arrive from a capsized Love Boat (circa 1978), and tens of thousands of followers and members of the new

‘Generation SHOP’ are urging Yoko Ono to lead the new economic revolution.


Fans of Hunter S. Thompson’s drug-addled gonzo psychedelia, William S. Burroughs’ tripped-out routines, William T. Vollman’s deep weirdness, and anyone who appreciates the rare, odd humor of a mind that can blend five decades of pop culture into a musical lyric lullaby is going to love what this “business executive” (and former Deadhead) has conjured up: an American joyride that rockets through time, space, and several uncharted dimensions, bringing us to a crystalline happy Somewhere that we never thought we had access to.

It’s been a few months since I’ve written anything.  I’ve had my hands full keeping sane with both my parents being ill, not just sniffles ill but bipolar and can’t breath ill, and getting past the death of a great lady.  She was my mother in law and I miss her every day.


I’ve tried to get back into putting my thoughts to paper in a coherent enough way to tell a story but I can’t seem to sustain an interest in doing so.


Is it because said efforts aren’t reaching an audience or because of another reason. I don’t know but I look about the entertainment world and I can’t believe the dreck that succeeds in gaining an audience. I simply am aghast at the Khardashians, American Idols, Bachelors, (Various Cities) Housewives.


I guess what interests me doesn’t do so for others.


I have a friend who is in the same pickle and he has changed his genre of writing to fantasy. I kid you not, he even went on Facebook and espoused that he is writing unicorns into his story, and last year he was writing really well thought out vampires and spine tingling horror.


I think I’m going to have to change my genre of writing if I’m to make something out of myself in the writing field.

Upon a Time Ferret  (Amazon) - Stephane D Palmer
Upon a Time Ferret  (Amazon UK) – Stephane D Palmer
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
Published: Amazon – Amazon UK
Website: Stephane D Palmer

This wonderful tale mustn’t be missed!


When movie director Riffic Gorripp is kidnapped and his cast of superstars vanish, billions of fans are left devastated. Little do they know the drama on the Michael O’Handsome movie-set marks the start of a nutty race across the Galaxy.


Only Riffic has the power to save the Universe, for it was his mistake that put it in peril in the first place, but things aren’t easy for him – life as a criminal in deep space is never easy. Umperor Rodgarr, the murderous Urknod tyrant is after his blood. Killer robots, carnivorous grubbeels, vicious aliens, and space madness are worries too. But the main worry, the thing that keeps Riffic awake at night, is knowing that he was never much good at being the Time Ferret.


“None of this ever happened. The idea that it could be based on a true story is quite ridiculous.” – Dipmopian Council.


“Excuse my language, but WTF???” – Airport Book Reviewer.


“Seriously, I have no idea what this book is about. Things melt, aliens get their heads bitten off, a planet gets turned inside-out, and an Urknod makes a bowel movement. What? Perhaps I’m not intelligent enough to appreciate it fully but I enjoyed it nonetheless.” – The Daily Galaxy.


“The Micheal O’Handsome films don’t sound so bad to me. I wonder if the author holds some sort of grudge against the Zathian film industry.” – Watchitt and Readitt Reviews.


“This book portrays the Umperor in an entirely unfair manner. He most certainly does not partake in petty cannibalism.” – Urknodopedia.


“The Sea of Infinity does not exist and it is sad that the myth runs so strongly through this otherwise sparkling book.” – Galactic Atheist Weekly.

There’s been a few, quite a few people out there who’ve been presenting a re-interpretation of world history as it’s come to be chronicled.  I’ve been interested in all these proposed versions of our past and have amassed my own version that has melded a few of these ideas.  Bear with me and follow the chronicle of our time I call My-Story, not His-tory.



BAAL was conceived at the Vernal equinox and born at the winter solstice.
the Phoenician/Canaanite kings identified with EL while the high priestess identified with BALAAT. At the vernal equinox they had ceremonial, public sex and the resulting child would become BAAL until he matured and became king or EL.
this was very similar to the Egyptian RA and HORUS worship
these were then seen by the ‘Apiru and were similar enough to the Kingly knowledge Moses had passed down that they thought it was the lost knowledge that Seqenenre Tao had died to protect and taken to the grave with him
under King David the ‘Apiru were dangerous and volatile. The King of Tyre Hibram Abif saw a way to appeal to the wild men of Canaan and the King of the ‘Apiru.
Phoenician King of Tyre Hiram Abif was a master builder and also holder of Kingly knowledge which King David sought to legitimize his rule. The knowledge was deemed legitimate because on its conjunction to the stars and its similarity to the ‘Apiru ancient knowledge, given to them by their great ancestor Moses
Hiram Abif did not want to share his special and unique knowledge of his Goddess consort BALAAT. He also needed time to rebuild his city in order to harbor fortifications and thus kept his kingly divine knowledge to himself and his progeny but also his source of income; sea trade safe
he appeased King David and the ‘Apiru further by offering to build a palace in his new capital city Jerusalem. He went further and befriended David by teasing him with some of the secrets of his Kingly knowledge
THE BASICS: VENUS & SUN Cycles & their Conjunctions
the 5 POINTS EMBRACE 1-HAND to HAND 2-FOOT to FOOT         3-KNEE to KNEE 4-BREAST to BREAST 5-HAND over BACK
the light of VENUS was the light of EL or OSIRIS returning to bless BAAL or HORUS as they became EL or OSIRIS
Solomon continued the building program his father David began with King Hiram Abif, the Phoenician King of Tyre
the Phoenicians had Byblos & Tyre as their key cities so they let the ‘Apiru take over the land based other Canaanite cities of Ashkelon & Jerusalem
