Avian Missing Link!

Recently, a 163-million-year-old therapod dinosaur was discovered in China: Ambopteryx longibrachium. With bat-like wings that would have allowed it to glide. It was about a foot long and weighed less than a pound. It is in a family of scansoriopterygid dinosaurs that are the ancestors of birds. (its wings were membranous rather than feathered)

Lots to write about: a present-day mama-sized Ambopteryx attacks Louisville during the Derby, but the race must go on!

Bookriders library!

Bookriders operated out of county seat libraries or in small warehouses used as libraries. This was likely an old grocery store. 1934-1943 WPA project to distribute books in eastern Kentucky on horseback.
My story is Beware the Blue Lady, part of a Bookriders anthology.

Recently, scientists created particles that have negative-mass and do not obey the laws of physics. They have negative weight, and if you hit one, it comes after you instead of away from you. (anti-matter is different, it has a negative charge)

Scientists believe that the 95% of the universe that is missing is negative mass matter. I am still learning, but anything that does not obey the laws of physics is fair game for my writing.

Given the mountainside log cabin with no windows, it is hard to believe this is likely from a 1934-1943 WPA project to distribute books in eastern Kentucky on horseback.

This Bookrider’s mount is climbing a dangerous slope. And, she is wearing slacks—something that would have gotten her locked up a few years earlier. 1934-1943 WPA project to distribute books in eastern Kentucky on horseback.

This shows a mountain father reading to his daughters. I believe a magazine photographer followed some of the Bookriders. 1934-1943 WPA project to distribute books in eastern Kentucky on horseback.

May 14th Roll Out!

Big Red

By Damien Larkin

We have always been here…

Traumatized by the effects of Compression travel, soldier Darren Loughlin holds the key to the fate of Earth’s Martian colonies. With his Battalion decimated, his fractured memory holds the only clues to the colony-wide communications blackout.

With time running out, Darren pieces together his year-long tour of duty with the Mars Occupation Force. Stationed in the Nazi-founded New Berlin colony, ruled by the brutal MARSCORP, he recounts his part in the vicious, genocidal war against the hostile alien natives and all who question Terran supremacy.

But as his memories return, Darren suspects he is at the centre of a plot spanning forty years. He has one last mission to carry out. And his alien enemies may be more human than he is…
