About

Well, I’m in my mid-50s, which means middle-aged, hence “from the middle zone.”  I have two daughters – one 23, in her last semester at college about 5 hours away, finishing her BFA.  The other is 18, about to graduate,and go off to college, and runs the household.  I have a B.S.B in Business (1980) from the University of Minnesota, and a J.D. from the University of Hawaii (2004).  I am on disability (SSI) due to multiple health problems, so I have plenty of time to think, muse, read and write.  I use the Weblog as a way to get my thoughts out somewhere, even if no one reads them – at least they are out of my head!

I read SF almost exclusively, peppered with some thriller/adventure type books like Matt Reilly and James Rollins, and some of the better Da Vinci Code style thrillers, like Steve Berry, Raymond Khoury, etc.  I also love YA SF/Fantasy fiction – there are some great authors out there.

So most of my writings/musings, in order to stay away from personal topics about my life, health, family and ex, are about what I read, or what I watch.  I have many topics always in cue, so it’s just a matter of finding the time to sit down and roll them out – so they come in clumps – several within a few days, then nothing, then more.

I write about what interests me, what intrigues me, and what I have questions about.  I invite comments, as many of my posts have questions either explicit or implicit within them.  If anyone has suggestions for musings/writings, please feel free to let me know – I am always on the lookout for more things to think about.  And I invite guest contributors, provided they stay within my conceptual framework of what is relevant, semi-relevant, or just plain intriguing.  Nothing too polemic (with the exception of book burning), just thoughts on what is current.  As the X-files tag says – The Truth is Out There!

  1. Greetings.

    Ever read “The Occult Technology of Power”?

    As the X-files tag says, The Truth is Out There.

    It’s easy to google.

    I am a muslim, and hope you read The Quran one day.

    I was wondering if you could e-mail me the name of the song on this website, Thehouseai’s Weblog.

    Salute!

  2. Sorry to hear about your health issues. I know how that goes. Science fiction is a great outlet for me, too.

  3. Thanks for linking to my Spider Robinson and Allen Steele lenses on Squidoo. I’ve added links to this blog to them. I also have a lens for John Varley. There are also web pages for these authors on my website.

    I’ve been reading SF, although not exclusively, since I was a teenager, and that was back in the ’60s!

  4. Thank you so much for posting my book, “The Christmas Doll.” May I send you the cover design? I would love to see it posted also. Kind Regards, Linda Doty. P.S. the sequel to my book was just released, “Hydrangea Hill.” I hope you read it.

  5. Hi, when I was a child I read this english children’s book about a little boy whose father was a horse cab driver in 19th century london. Their horse was named diamond. I read it when I was so little I don’t really remember, but I think basically the family was slowly starving, and the little boy kept getting sick and having these dreams where he would climb up a ladder to the stars and open a door and be in a beautiful place where a lady would come and take care of him. I think in the end he died and stayed there forever–the book was kind of on the order of the little match-girl. Anyway, I loved the book, and now I can’t find it and I can’t remember anything more about it. Do you by ANY chance know what I am talking about?

    Thanks!
