Happy Thanksgiving

Free HD WallpapersHappy Thanksgiving to everyone in the States or around the world who is observing the holiday.

Among the things I’m thankful for are all the people who follow this blog or my others, as well as everyone who reads my posts at Amazing Stories or Black Gate.  It’s nice having a platform to share my thoughts and engage in discussions about sword and sorcery, fantasy in general, science fiction, historical fiction, mystery and noir, and history.  Even if I haven’t had time this semester to post as much as I’d hoped.

I hope all of you have a great day, whether you’re celebrating the holiday or not.

Happy Memorial Day

I’m traveling this weekend, so this is going to be a short post with no graphic.  (Borrowed computer and all that.)  I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day.  More importantly, I wanted to thank everyone who has served in any branch of the military.  Without your service, sacrifice, and commitment, this country and the world would be very different.  But not better.

I focus on heroes a great deal in these posts, but you men and women are the real heroes, along with the first responders such as paramedics, law enforcement, firemen, and National Guard.  Your service is much appreciated.  Thank you.
