My Christmas Poem

Twas the week before Christmas,
And all through the house,
Every creature was fretting
And starting to grouse.

Then from UPS
Came a gift flowerpot
From a friendly old colleague
Whose gift I'd forgot.  

But then I remembered:
Don't feel like a schnook
In just a few minutes
I can send a fine book

No wrapping, no breakage,
No address to scrawl,
No trade-ins, no trouble,
'Cause one size fits all.

So boot up your browser,
And don't be a schnook.
In a fistful of keystrokes
You can send an e-book.

Naturally, I recommend one of my novels for a fun read and fitting gift—perfect for smart adults and bright teenagers.

For just $4.99, you can go to and send your friend an engaging, exciting story, one that also carries one or more science/technology themes. 

These novels are my attempts to put the science back in science fiction and the techno back in techno-thrillers.

The Residue Class Mysteries Themes
The Freshman Murders: Computers, Culture, Genealogy
Where There's a Will There's a Murder: Mathematics, Anthropology

The Stringers Series Themes
 First Stringers: Physics, Social Psychology
 Second Stringers: Space Travel, Psychology

The Women of Power Series Themes
Mistress of Molecules: Chemistry, Politics
The Hands of God: Parallel Computing, Neurophysiology, and Prosthetics
Earth’s Endless Effort: Unconventional Computers, Alien Contact

The Aremac Project Series Themes
The Aremac: Software Development, Testing, Security
Aremac Power: Risks and  Rewards of Invention

And, of course, always Computers!

And if you've already gifted everyone on your list, I invite you to try one of my novels for yourself. As always, if it doesn't fit for you, I’ll gladly return your money.
