Fasten 8 Ing

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The fascination of time travel is being able to change something that’s already happened. But why do I assume I could change it for the better? What if I went to Dallas in 1963 and kept the president from being shot. Seems like that would be a good thing, right? Nothing against JFK, but what… Read more »

Tuttle’s Influence

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Besides writing the Garison Fitch books (which are experiencing their best sales month ever this March–thanks readers!!), I also draw the comic strip “Tuttle’s” and the on-line comic book “Burt & the I.L.S.”. In addition, I write a column for the High Plains Observer, an on-line newspaper that covers the Texas panhandle, as well as… Read more »

Return of Garison?

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

All of the novels I have written have come to me suddenly, some of them in dreams. A dream about picking someone up at the bus station became “Psalm 88″. A casual comment by my father three decades ago became “First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch.” Yesterday, while building a fire in the outdoor… Read more »

The Lochs

Drove to Amarillo and back today, crossing the Canadian River each way. Whenever I do this, I picture Edward and Marianne as they cross the great lochs. I honestly don’t know how “engineeringly” possible this concept is. A few miles up the river from where I crossed, is Lake Meredith, which was created by damming… Read more »

Musing on Time Travel

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I have to tell you: I don’t believe in time travel. I’ve read the articles about how a super-sonic jet traveling from New York to L.A. actually travels backwards in time something like 2 seconds. And I read the book “Elegant Universe” (by Brian Greene) and almost understood the part where the front end of… Read more »

Whoo-hoo!

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It’s official: I have now sold more copies of my books in the month of February 2010 than in any other single month! 31 Kindle copies and 2 paperbacks, in case you’re wondering. This is appropriate as I always look forward to February as it’s when pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training. As a… Read more »
