Pet Peeves and Paranoia

Given the very sad news of Roy Horn's passing on 5/8, I thought it appropriate to post this article I wrote about him several years ago, after watching a TV special detailing his recovery from an onstage incident involving a white tiger.

Although the piece (which was initially penned for the "Pet Peeves and Paranoia" column of my Mil Mania newsletter, and an excerpt from which was subsequently published in the Mensa Bulletin) discusses events now far from current, the spirit that inspired its writing will surely live on as Roy's legacy, and it's being shared here as both a tribute to him, and a challenge to readers (and myself).

Writing Section Updates

Having rediscovered the novelette that was serialized in the "Writings From the Asylum" column of Mil Mania (as noted in the last blog post) I'm now posting chapters of it as time permits the bit of reformatting needed for the web.  A new chapter (in two parts, as it appeared in the newsletter) has just been added this evening.  More will be coming soon, so check the  "Fiction" page for these regularly.

I hope you enjoy it.  And, of course, feel free to share your feedback either via email or the Random Rants Discussion Board.
