I am educated in the Western Classical Tradition, B.A. from U.C. Berkeley in Latin and Greek, English major, one year at U. of Toronto, studied under Alain Renoir and Northrop Frye, read most classics full time for many years after university in French, English, Latin and Greek to the modern day. I am interested in the near future of technology, what changes it imposes upon our heritage and character as humans. Short stories and Essays are my medium.

            The chief and I, our five scouts, spent a much more active winter.  When weather permitted, we set off with guns to hunt and explore the surrounding hills.  We constructed snowshoes, and soon after wooden skies, as much for our amusement...

              “I am continuing my narrative,” (he wrote) “after a two-week delay, caused by my running out of paper.  I now have a plentiful supply, but also a small group of followers to superintend, such is the twisting of fate.  But I expect to f...

  Looks like Dave, only better dressed. We took the drive in my Volare to the flatlands of Alameda and pulled into the parking lot of a cheap, long, two-story motel. It was one of those places you could rent rooms by the week at a much lower rate, w...
