And Now, for my next trick…

Review Copies Away!

After an amazingly long and involved process (many of these reviewers seem as if they don’t WANT to be found!) I have managed to send off printed review copies of InterstellarNet: Enigma. The official pub date is June 30, 2015, but between you, me, and the wallpost, most such dates are imaginary and have been […]

My father, Thomas B. Allen, was just on the PBS National Geographic Special The National Mall — America’s Front Yard. One of the things he talked about was The Washington Monument. In fact, he wrote the book on it, and here it is. Later, when I can catch my breath, we’ll get the book onto […]
