The thing I don't like about "geek culture" is that its conceptual space is occupied by ideas that are so inbred that they're crippled from inception and so insular that they're forced to subsist on their own waste. For example, in the mind of your average "geek", any permutation of the words pirate, ninja, and zombie is the bud of a flowering genre of art that would fit in a museum somewhere between the Warhol and Pollack exhibits. Most of what "geek culture" really produces is like a dandelion that sprouts from a cow pie: small, ugly, and common.

I kept looking for a "like" button because I am a non-geek Philistine that way. :D

p.s. couldja possibly send me an updated file of your stories I bought awhile back? Please please please? Now that I have time to read, Amazon doesn't wanna gimme the newer version :(

I don't think "The Informant" has changed but I added "The Mandala" after you downloaded your version, so I'll email it to you. Sorry to make you read it on the computer but I can't figure out how to get Amazon to update your Kindle copy. :( If it's any consolation, it's not long! Just email me so I can reply with the doc attached: easlern@yahoo.com .

I've been writing more often and I think I've improved quite a bit. When I look back at these stories I wonder what I was thinking when I published them, lol. Thanks for being a patron of my humble (but burgeoning) craft. :D
