Ubiquitous Bubba (if that's his real name) spends a significant amount of time surrounded by imaginary characters from bizarre universes. He's been known to hold conversations with animals, inanimate objects, and food. These discussions frequently diverge into philosophy, speculations on Reality/Unreality, and the proper role of cheese in society.
Growing up in Texas, he studied the lore of the Storyteller, the mysterious art of the tall tale, and the pervasive universal existence of Bubbas. They're everywhere. As he wandered universes, he discovered that there's always a Bubba around when you need one.
Ubiquitous is also a drummer, who has somewhat narrow and specialized musical tastes. A fan of progressive and hard rock styles, he's also known to incorporate some funk just to keep himself entertained.
Ubiquitous Bubba enjoys relaxing at home with his wife and three kids. He enjoys telling stories, eating pizza, and holding the recliner down. It hasn't gotten away yet, but one can't be too careful.

- The Battle of Chibi
on June 28, 2013
The Battle of Chibi may appear at first to be a daunting read, but it is well worth the effort. The book offers an abridged version of The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. For those who are not acquainted with this revered saga, The Battle of Chibi is an excellent introduction.
The introductory sections of the book are extremely helpful to readers who are unfamiliar with the story or the culture. The reading advice presented here is excellent and helps to make the entire book more accessible. The Battle of Chibi is well written, presenting not only the actions of warriors but insight into the culture and thoughts of those involved.
This is not just a story of war. It is a tale of honor, betrayal, strategy, heroism, love and sacrifice. The characters are shrouded in legend and myth, but they are still intrinsically human.
Readers who are not accustomed to this type of literature may have difficulty at first with making sense of the seemingly unending battles, beheadings, plots and characters. In the end, persistence pays off. The story unfolds and primary figures emerge. To me, the story became intriguing when master strategists matched wits. Those who enjoy tales of schemes within plots veiled in subterfuge will love this book.
