He was educated during his wandering phase, receiving his BS degree when he was 25 (despite the claims of some sycophants/critics who say it was at the moment of birth.)

He married a girl with alien roots, and subsequently she became pregnant and delivered The Boy With the Longest Name.
They had another child just af

Howard the Red

Howard the Red is now available at Amazon. It's been three years since I published Kathy's Recollections, a long time between books in this series. Next up is Douglas Lives.

Howard the Red is a more mature book with more mature themes. It explores new characters and one old character, Pete. In this book we learn how Pete was critical to Mike becoming "Chief."

Not Noteworthy

The worst of Robert Heinlein is better than most others, but this is his worst. Prepare to do a lot of skimming.

A Decent Read

This is an interesting book, well written for the most part. Some characters were stereotypical but most felt genuine, and the same can be said for the scenes. The main character comes off as rather clueless given his background.

Boring

Not the worst thing he has written, but close to it. Certainly the most disappointing book of the year, so far. I skimmed much of it.

Not bad, but I'm getting tired of all the recycled scenes. She is better than this book would indicate. Oh well

“Kids do not appreciate subtlety in adults when they are trying to understand something.”
Stan Morris

“I sit beside the fire and think
Of all that I have seen
Of meadow flowers and butterflies
In summers that have been

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
In autumns that there were
With morning mist and silver sun
And wind upon my hair

I sit beside the fire and think
Of how the world will be
When winter comes without a spring
That I shall ever see

For still there are so many things
That I have never seen
In every wood in every spring
There is a different green

I sit beside the fire and think
Of people long ago
And people that will see a world
That I shall never know

But all the while I sit and think
Of times there were before
I listen for returning feet
And voices at the door”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Hi Tammy,
I've been thinking about you. I finally finished Surviving the Fog-Kathy's Recollections. I'm in the process of editing it now. I had a lot of fun writing this book, and the discussions I had with you really inspired me. Thanks a lot. I forget where I was when I was sending you the chapters, but hopefully they are better now.


Tammy K. Useful Ways to Use Zombies was too funny Stan. Loved it!

L Dear Stan,
I would like to thank you for being my friend on Goodreads, which is a brilliant site where one is able to converse with so many likeminded people both authors and readers. I hope that at some point i will have chance to read your work, as it is a genre that i am very interested in. Also, i look forward to future book discussions and in 'the (not-so)Austen bookgroup' that i too am a member of.
Thanks once again,
Lucinda x
