Ben Tripp When I realize I haven't checked Goodreads for 55 days and missed a question. Otherwise I hate nothing about it. It's the best job.
Ben Tripp I don't generally get it. The secret for me is to work on several things at once. If I'm blocked on one project, I move to the next.

So I just realized it's been ages since I posted here. I'll provide two reasons for that, because it's very important to tell people a story that deflects blame from your own essential lack of seriousness or commitment to a project.

First, I've been having a very interesting life, and the more interesting it gets, the less time I have to chew pens and write words about writing words. Except the... Read more of this blog post »

Heat Lightning (Science Fiction & Fantasy)

Description: Just for the sheer thrill of it, I'm posting the first few pages of my third novel right here in public. It's a story of aliens, crop circles, and the most obstinate man in America. It takes place in a sea of ripe corn.

“Fellow Englishman. Ladies and gentleman. You gather here today to see a live man become a dead one, and for my part you shall have satisfaction. But I would offer you a moral lesson to commemorate my passing; otherwise it might as well be bull baiting you witness here today. However I shall not deliver a warning that crime does not pay, for it pays very well; nor that a life of drink and debauchery leads inevitably to destruction, for I haven't led such a life. Here's what this little life of mine has taught me. There is only one reason to live, and there is only one reason to die, and that is love. If you have not known love, you have not lived. But if, when death comes to take your soul, you have loved someone dearly, then your soul is safe; for it lives in the bosom of your sweetheart, and death can make no claim upon it. That is all I know, and it is enough. Farewell.”
