Two AR Links, A Review and a Bonus Video

TweetLife is random and full of amusement. Had a busy, productive week for the current novel project about Alexandria.  Added a few posts to Games Alfresco–one about a new AR RPG called Traveller and another about an interactive billboard.  Also, The Digital Sea got a nice review from the Literary R&R. And last, because I …

Anthology Announcement – Mirror Shards: Exploring the Edges of Augmented Reality

Tweet                         I’m excited to announce that I will be producing and editing an anthology about augmented reality this fall through my publisher Black Moon Books.  The anthology will be pay up to professional rates and be released in September of 2011.  The title …

A New Cover – Sagan’s Law

TweetPeople really do judge a book by its cover.  I’m a cover snob myself.  Unless I know the author’s work already, a cover will make or break my buying decision in the bookstore after reading the premise.  Hell, I won’t even read the premise if I don’t like the cover.  It doesn’t make sense, but …

Mirage HMD Augmented Reality System

TweetThe HMDs are here! The HMDs are here! Okay, maybe it’s not that exciting, especially when you realize that the Mirage from Arcane Technologies is not a stylish pair of glasses or even some retro steampunk goggles outfitted with AR HMD gear.  The unit looks so bulky and bland that not even Lady Gaga could make it trendy. …

New Short Story: The Unbelievers

TweetThrough my publisher, Black Moon Books, I’m pleased to be releasing another short story: The Unbelievers. I’ll hit you with a description of the novelette first. Power exists through the illusion of belief… Stephen’s sister dies slowly from a wasting disease and only the mysterious Unbelievers offer help if he will deny the “false reality” …

Why Write About Augmented Reality?

TweetBesides the immediate surly replies of “Because” or “Why not?” (my parental mind is leaking through here), I think it’s an interesting question and one I’ve encountered before, including a recent tangential discussion in the comments section about AR and eBooks. So far I’ve written five novels and twelve short stories utilizing augmented reality and have …

Music for The Digital Sea

TweetYou might be wondering, based on the title of this post, if I have a soundtrack for my novel The Digital Sea.  That would be ludicrous, of course.  But, wow, it would be cool.  Music is an integral part of my lifelong experience with books.  I have at time read certain books or series while listening …

Football and a Chapter

TweetThe last few weeks have been hectic.  I’ve finished five shorts, including a requested story for an anthology, and finished the latest edits on my most recent novel Gamers.  I still have to type in the edits and write my submission package, but that shouldn’t be too bad, just time consuming. So after an afternoon …

The Digital Sea – Now Available in Paperback

Tweet For those of you without an eReader, The Digital Sea is now available on Amazon as a paperback.  The cover looks fantastic and I’m very pleased how the artist, Joseph Roberts, transformed my vague ideas into a beautifully rendered retro sci-fi cover.  He’s done a number of album covers but this was his first …

Augmented Reality Year in Review – 2010

TweetTwo years ago, in 2009, augmented reality took its first steps into mainstream consciousness.  This last year, 2010, we’ve seen augmented reality really expand into new formats and across spectra. Like I did last year, I’m going to review month-by-month the mishaps and happenings of augmented reality in 2010.  This year the task seems more imposing …
