Robert M. Campbell hails from the east coast of Canada, having recently returned to New Brunswick after extended stays in Toronto and Ottawa.

Book 4 Update, June 2018

Hi.


Sorry it’s been awhile. I have some Good News:


NEW PROVIDENCE BOOK 4 IS ALMOST DONE!


No, really. I mean it.


I might even have a catchy title for it.


I’ve been working on this thing for a year now and it’s finally wrapping up. It is still in draft form. I still have to do one final pass and some rework, but it is approaching completion. I can feel it.


This is a big, complicated book, with a lot o

Robert is 30% done with The Three-Body Problem: Shelving this. Interesting story but the party politics are kind of gross.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

R. Buckminster Fuller
“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”
Buckminster Fuller
