New Publications Listed Below

Well, not so new any more,
but still a good read.

My novel,
2060: a love story in a utopian future,



was published in 2007 and is available from amazon.com
and can be ordered from your favorite independent book store.


*** *** *** ***

The year is 2060, and women have been struggling for fifty years to find a cure for the virus that obliterated the male population. With the careful management of sperm banks, women have kept the human race alive and, at the same time, achieved a multi-racial society.

A genetic amendment of the Y chromosome has enabled experimental groups of boy babies to survive. Young men sequestered from civilization are now beginning to emerge.

How will women respond?
How will men adapt to being out in the world?
And what about heterosexual sex as in the Old Days?

"2060 is a stunning look into a future where integrity, cooperation, trust, and kindness are essential. I just loved it and didn't want it to ever end."
—Barbara Trent, Academy Award-winning filmmaker of The Panama Deception.

Political Songs

In August-September 2005 I dealt with my anger and disgust re the Bush Cabal by writing political songs and attempting to organize a local chapter of the Raging Grannies.

The Nine:
War-Monger Georgie
Impeach Him! The Lying Interloper!
Down on a Ranch In Crawford, Texas
Katrina Was an Act of God
So Sing the Iraqi
Nobody Knows How Many We've Killed
The Pentagon's Plotting New War Sites
Take Him Out!
"Official A"

For the lyrics to these nine, click here.

Some Thoughts on 9-11-2001
(posted September 21, 2001)

Note of December 11, 2005: This article is an interesting snapshot of my thinking ten days after 9-11.   Even though I had instantly recognized the falling towers as a controlled demolition— I had turned on the TV and caught the sight of the first tower in free fall before hearing any mention of planes hitting the building— it took time and a lot of unanswered questions for me to accept that 9-11 was another Reichstag fire. For any of you who still believe the official story, I urge you to read theologian David Ray Griffin's The New Pearl Harbor.
Note of July 26, 2008: The Griffin book is good for the LIHOP (Let It Happen on Purpose) theory group. If Griffin has you re-thinking the Official Version, maybe you are ready for the MIHOP (Made It Happen on Purpose) group. If so, the book to read is: Webster Griffin Tarpley's, 9/11 Synthetic Terror - Made in USA.
