My new novel, Diego in Two Places, is now available on Amazon. I hope you get a chance to read or order for a friend, maybe as a strange Valentine’s Day present.

Have you ever wondered what Santa did the other 364 days a year? Now you do...You didn't hear it from me, probably would make the naughty list, but Vermeer knockoffs pay big!   Given that the gift operations is an underperformer financially, the loot comes in handy. the Cuban cigars and single malt Scotch ain't cheap.
 
Happy Christmas!
wishing you all a wonderful Christmas, with peace, health and joy!

To help you start smiling, especially for those of you who may not follow Christian observance, check out these amazing works by Ed Wheeler.  Wheeler is a professional photographer who also loves (and knows) his art.  
For this series, he has taken photos of himself in a Santa a costume, usually in the pose of one of the figures in the painting, and then transposed that figure into an image of the painting.  But he did so very delicately, ensuring that the lighting, colors, and textures were adapted to the painting, in order to get an optimal fit between original painting and inserted Santa.

Check out the website over the Holidays, you will find a few amusing surprises.

A knockout day, creatively.  A couple of ideas for novels with strong hooks,  great visuals, and fresh feeling encounters with alien civilizations. I'm intrigued and want to figure out more. :D

I've read a number of Heinlein's books, liked them all.  Fun and creative stories.  Some take a stab at "Hard" sci-fi, e.g. Farmer in the Sky.   This though is the work of a master of the genre at the top of his game.  It's as if he was on a mission to prove he was THE master of the genre.  Creative on so many levels.  Believable cultures and dialog.    A more action oriented version of the story could be a television series or a trilogy of movies.  Stephen Spielberg level sci-fi (With some work).

Addendum: since posting, I've come across a couple of his stories that I didn't like so much.  Still, if he were a baseball player, he'd be compared to Babe Ruth.  Actually, I think he was at one point considered one of the three great sci-fi writers, with Asimov and Clarke.  His dialogue does feel a little mid-century now. And the philosophy espoused by his characters would be considered controversial by many...but...it's sci-fi...not all potential cultures are going to be understandable or likable.  He's a real explorer of ideas, which I admire him for, even if his characters are outrageous at times.

For fun of meeting interesting people. Can be serious but consider the internet more of a party with precious little libation.  If google came up with a cerveza on tap app that would be good.  LOL
