I am not a man of many hats.
I'm not speaking metaphorically. I'm talking about hats, in all their literal, haberdasherial glory. Though I have acquired lots of hats, I am a disorganized flake and lose them all the time. Right now, I just have one. This is not many.

Motivation (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 14, 2012 03:56PM
Description: This appeared in <i>Chess Life</i> about ten years ago. It was the first piece of fiction I ever sold. They gave me $150. I was ecstatic. In my humble opinion, I think it's pretty funny. Chess players especially should enjoy it, I hope. Thanks for reading. Hope you like it.
Practical Applications of Game Theory. A Novel (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 24, 2010 06:38AM
Description: This is chapter one of my second novel, for which I am currently seeking a publisher or literary agent. It's all about mathematics and prison. It's OZ for geniuses. Yes, it's got shower rapes AND advanced game theoretical analysis, all in one package. If any agents or publishers stumble across this and are interested in seeing more please contact me.

Killing the Deep State by Jerome R. Corsi
"This book should be classified under humor because I laughed out loud often at how ridiculous it is. The author is called a “conspiracy theory expert” so you know what you’re going to get. Absolutely no facts and only rumor and innuendo repeated f..." Read more of this review »
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
"This book meant a lot to me as a teenager. As I reread it, I tried to remember what I loved about it. Which parts spoke to me? It wasn’t the Irish politics or the schoolboy slang.

Head On by John Scalzi
"All Scalzi's faults are once again on display. The book is readable, but a pathological refusal to physically describe his characters, a neurotic need to give characters ethnically clashing first and last names, odd snarky comments implying people..." Read more of this review »

One thing that quickly becomes evident on reading A Life in Our Times is that John Kenneth Galbraith is enormously impressed with the accomplishments of John Kenneth Galbraith.

“I want an avowed atheist in the White House. When time comes to push that button, I want whoever's making the decision to understand that once it's pushed, it's over. Finito. They're not gonna have lunch with Jesus. Won't be deflowering 72 virgins on the great shag carpet of eternity, or reincarnated as a cow. I want someone making that decision who believes life on this Earth isn't just a dress rehearsal for something better -- but the only shot we get.”
