SAFARI MINE: An African Odyssey 1928-1937

Wait...what?  Another book already?

Yes, yes--now you know what I've been doing all this time. This is the book I've been working on since my mother passed away in 2014. I only wish she could have lived long enough to read (and proofread) it, since she is the one who told me the story and provided the title. It was supposed to be her memoir...but in the end I had to write it without her. Dammit. And there is much more yet to tell: I'm at work on the sequel, which covers the years 1938-1947. Incredible stuff, you'll see.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Short Takes on Pop Culture from Androids to Zombies

My new book is out! It's a collection of my favorite brief essays of the past decade or so, which I think are not only fun but informative...and the ideal length for reading on the toilet!
