ERBzine Navigation Page - that's my navigation page at Bill Hillman was kind enough to create the page for me. It lists my available Edgar Rice Burroughs articles and hundreds of historically based ERB themed 100 word drabbles.
Check out the site. It's a true labor of love (On Bill Hillman and Sue-On Hillman's parts) and I'm honored to be part of it. 15,000 pages and growing every day. Kreegah Bundolo!

Strangely Funny VII released.

Mystery and Horror LLC announced the publication of "Strangely Funny VII" today. The book is available in both print and Kindle versions at:
The blurb on Amazon takes a quote from my story, the eighth Marvin, the snot nosed pixie, story to be published. Buy multiple copies, it costs a lot to keep Marvin in beer.
“Wake up, Jefferson. Early to bed and early to rise, and you don’t get caught with other men’s wives.” Jefferson answered the door and held it open for Ben Franklin and Marvin. “Damn, Franklin, how can you drink that much and be so chipper the morning after?"- Pixiedelphia Freedom, Robert Allen Lupton
As always, thank you, Sarah Glenn.

400 Days in a Row

400 straight days or running without missing a day. Today, I ran with someone else for the first time in the streak. My friend, Douglas Wise, ran five miles with me on the Bosque Trail in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We were awesome, two 70+ year old dudes rocking it on the river trail. We were so calm it didn't feel like we were running, it was more like we abided, or abode if you prefer, along the trail.

"STRONG SPIRITS." new short story collection is published.

"Strong Spirits," my third collection of fantasy, horror, science fiction, and adventure stories went live this morning on Amazon - with a little more wit and whimsy than my previous collections. I've found that the longer it's been since I had to go to work everyday, the easier it is to see the humor in things.

The cover is by professional artist, Mike Walter, and the book design is by Robin Allison Lupton.

The Ebook edition and the print edition aren't yet linked on Amazon, that will take a couple more days.

The electonic (Kindle) edition is $3.99 to buy and free to read with Kindle Unlimited:

The paperback is $9.99 at:
