My books listed at blog book sites, etc.

The Acorn Gathering recently reached number 1 at the blog-based book rating site All Consuming. Over the past several days, it has consistently appeared there and two similar sites: Weblog Bookwatch and News Is Free. Those sites look for books that receive coverage in blogs.

I edited and co-wrote The Acorn Gathering, with all royalties going to fund cancer research. I previously wrote four other books. In fact, one of them came out just a few months before The Acorn Gathering


Degranon.



That controversial science fiction novel has received mention at some of the same sites, as well as at various science fiction sites and in various newspapers. You can comment on Degranon at The Global Network of Dreams (GNOD), a rather unusual, interactive site.

As GNOD’s creator put it: “Gnod is my experiment in the field of artificial intelligence. Its a self-adapting system, living on this server and 'talking' to everyone who comes along. Gnods intention is to learn about the outer world and to learn 'understanding' its visitors. This enables gnod to share all it's wisdom with you in an intuitive and efficient way. You might call it a search-engine to find things you don't know about.”
