Happy Robbie Burns Day!

January 25th is known as Robbie Burns Day, annually.

Robert Burns was a Scottish poet who lived from 25 January 1759 to 21 July 1796. Many of his poems have been made into touching songs.

“Burns Suppers” are held around the time of his birthday each year to commemorate his life and writings, with traditional Scottish food, drink, dancing, poetry readings and songs.

Here’s a great site about him and his writing: http://robertburns.org

-11°C feels like -18

As General Simpson in my D.U.M.B.s series is fond of saying “Goddam!” N0 wonder it was feeling chilly around here! I hope you are snug and warm where you are.

And remember…it’s always warm deep underground! (At least in my books…)

MMD cover 2

HIS FUTURE-SELF FREAKS HIM OUT!

When Jack, a pensive writer, encounters another version of himself, the “fun” is just beginning.

His doppelganger takes him on a fun-house ride that knows no bounds, only those of the imagination.

But it’s not all dazzle, as his future-self has things to tell before he disappears.

Where did this other self come from? Why is he here? What the hell is going on?

Jacks needs answers! His future is at stake.

The Abyss film is 25 this month!

Wow, was it really 25 years since the amazing film “The Abyss” came out? It must be, as this month marks its 25 anniversary!

I came across a book a while back that was written by one of the editors during the production of the film. It’s called “Life’s Abyss Then You Dive” by Joe Woo Jr. (Great title!)

I read the free sample and so far it’s a fascinating memoir (at least to a filmmaker, sci-fi fan, and somewhat film geek like me), providing a lot of on-set detail and stories about working with James Cameron. Joe has a photo gallery here: http://lifesabyss.com

His ebook is available here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/422532

I also see it here: http://www.scribd.com/book/219452567/Life-s-Abyss-Then-You-Dive 

I’ll be reading the rest of it on Scribd with my subscription trial! I’m really liking the subscription so far. (Some of my books are on there too, if you are curious!)

And here’s a detailed blog post about the production of The Abyss: http://blogs.virginmedia.com/movies/blogs/making-of-the-abyss

Enjoy,
Dave

p.s. My book “Moonbase: D.U.M.B.s (Deep Underground Military Bases) – Book 4″ is a pre-order on Amazon.com where you can order it now!
