Kevin Williams

Biography

Latest: Teddyhunter:Baby-Blues Sam
complete novel due feb 2019 (maybe)

Novels are usually 100,000 words: freebies vary. (and might be ANYTHING!)
If you don't fall over laughing at least once while reading these, the book is a failure.

Other than that, SF is the lit/philosophy of western urbanization.
Problem-solving
the effect of tech
on people
via new mythology.

Beware, you MAY learn something. Or think a bit here and there, even in the comics..
Cartooning? Does-is-ought. Take a does, show what is it is, discuss the ought. (ie: table= work-server= that gossips)
SF? what if, then what, so what?
Fantasy? Any sufficiently advanced tech is indistinguishable from magic.

Readers are welcome to proof-read; if I think it's a good correction, it goes in. (just send an e-mail, book-name + quoted line)
Thanks. (One long-suffering reader got a few books dedicated to him.)

On a personal note; I've got nearly 2 million words published at smashwords.com now. SF + fantasy novels, cartoons + short-stories.

Jeez, lemme see; This whole mess got started in grade school; shorts in HS; novels after. (first one done in pencil.)

Dozen or so 80,000 word novelettes (mostly type-writer.); first computer stuff, 80's; novels+shorts.

Years of quarterlies,novels,cartoons subs; (apple-clones, compacts, pcs) '86: BBSing a shorts echo (rogue-bone), blogs, cartooning

I THINK I can add another million words there. Maybe. Most of them are lost unless some old CD backups turn up.

Oh, if you don't make the best-seller list with your first novel today, you don't get a second. An 8-million hit web-wonder is entry level committee stuff. I think my count is 15 published and a dozen or so lost.

******************
* WARNING! * Live and live, (long i vs short) tho and thou. I use thou as tho sometimes. It's the most common complaint.
******************
Writing has been a hobby of mine since the third grade, and was an ambition even earlier. Cartooning, music + philosophy are other bad habits I keep up. (Plus a few secret ones I'm NOT telling you about, so there!)

I zined SF cons with shorts for years (on the freebie table). Well, till they started charging for intros, freebie placements and contests. Quarterly editions, mostly: fantasy, horror (Halloween), children's (Christmas), romantic comedy, (Valentines) hard SF, july 1st or world con. Most are in the collections, tho I'm still writing the occasional one today.

Enjoy, thanks, pass it on! (Have a day of it, eh?)
