Short Fiction Reeve, Arthur B,: The Dream Doctor (1914), v1

This book is a "fixup" of 12 Craig Kennedy short stories, converting them into an episodic novel. There is a fair amount of linking text, and the titles of the original stories appear as chapter heads, not at the beginning of each story but a page or two in, which makes splitting out the original stories more difficult. So far as I could work out, the original stories were: The Dream Doctor The Sybarite The Phantom Circuit The Green Curse The Elixir of Life The Opium Joint The Kleptoman...

Red Panda is Judging You

The red panda at the Indy zoo has been elusive for me thus far. This is the best shot I've gotten. It was an impromptu zoo trip, and I was fortunate to happen to have been walkabout with the new-to-me Canon 40D and the 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens when we decided to go. (For the indoor exhibits I generally fell back on my iPhone 7 plus, because the decade-old DSLR's sensor and the slow-ish zoom just weren't up to shooting moving targets in the "Oceans of the World" building.)

YA Books That Feature Brothers

Action Reeve, Arthur B:. The Exploits of Elaine (1915), v2

The huge success of Pearl White in the cliff-hanger serial "The Perils of Pauline" saw Pearl White back in peril in another serial, "The Exploits of Elaine" (1914), the script of which was written by Arthur B Reeve and Charles Goddard, and featured Craig Kennedy as the man constantly rescuing Elaine from the villain's machinations. In 1915 the book version appeared, with a still from the movie as a frontispiece. The book, too, is naturally an episodic cliffhanger, not in the Craig Kennedy mains...

An EBook converter?

When I'm studying a subject and find a book that I wish to use I find that it helps me to absorb what I’m studying by copying pieces from the book onto my computer, then work with those words by writing a critique on what that particular writer said and then deleting the copied EBook. The problem is that if I wish to type the words I am reading from a book onto my computer face by the time I have moved my eyes from the book to the computer I forget what I wanted to type within seconds.

BOLO

Redo dollar store Christmas ornaments

Looking through my Christmas decorations, I found a bunch of outdated, inexpensive Christmas ornaments that were ready for either the trash or a whole new look. They were mostly dollar store ornaments that I’d picked up years ago to fill space on my tree, but I didn’t need them anymore. They weren’t old enough to be vintage and cool, they were just outdated. They had good bones, and just needed a refresh in their style and color. I’m going to have a rustic Christmas tree this year, so I won...
