Welcome, Stephen Goldin!

Polly!

My latest book is a religious satire called Polly!

Making up your own religion can be fun. Check out my blog PollyTheism.

Stephen Goldin's Polly! is an engaging novel, drawing the reader into humorous philosophical discussions about the various demands that people make regarding their deities.

--William Hampl
Editor, American Atheist magazine
=======================================================
All hands on Decalogue! A protagonist readers will find it easy to identify and empathize with, a classic journey story told with wit, wisdom and deceptive ease, and the most interesting guest star ever--what's not to like, here? Perhaps writers who attempt a book like Polly! wanna crack or two across the face for their audacity (to parrot conventional wisdom)--but not if they can manage to pull it off this entertainingly.
--Spider Robinson
co-author of Variable Star
by Robert A. Heinlein and Spider Robinson
=======================================================
Read some excerpted quotes from Polly!

Science Fiction/Fantasy Atheists

Atheists enjoy speculative stories as they *should* be enjoyed: for entertainment purposes only, not to be confused with reality. Members here can have fun discussiung the literature, movies, TV, etc.

Strange story.  I did a Google search on my name to see if the general public see's my connection to Atheist Nexus and what level of detail is shown to a non member.

A link came up on the second page to a letter I had written on animalsincanada... I recognized it as a letter sent to the Toronto Star a couple of years ago that wasn't published.  A further Google search showed it actually was.

On re reading the letter I got all enraged again.  Since I've been posting stuff lately on atheist nexus I remembered your dog and cat discussion.  I love both my dog and cat - but have a little problem with all of our hypocrisy with treatment of other animals.  So I was going to post something to stir up a bunch of dog and cat lovers.  I've calmed down now.

These were the two links.  The Star one takes longer to load.

Here is the Star letter:

So...I did all that work for nothing. You still haven't used it. Why?

Hey Stephen!!!!!

This one is a good one too:

I was checking out your blog and this "golden rule" spoke to me:

"Children demand their rights; adults accept their responsibilities."

I must be an everlasting child. I have started 6 books in the past two months and haven't finished any of them. I would rather play on the computer.

Hey Stephen. I am unemployed and I have lots of time on my hands. I think I could do a slightly better job on your website http://prasina.com. Check me out at http://www.pc-tamer.com/ Anyway, I would like to do it for free. I just would like your permission to use the current pictures and text on your website right now.

Some details: I could publish it to my website and let you see it so that you could decide if you are even interested in using it, and if you are, we could work together to get it just the way you want it.

I get the benefit of keeping my skills fresh. You might get a website with more impact.

What do you say?

Thanks for the welcome.  Looking forward to seeing the ideas here and tossing up my own.

"Tweets" button

Posted on December 9, 2009 at 12:03pm 9 Comments

How do I get that damn-blasted Tweets button off my screen? I don't want it there. I never asked for it. As far as I can see, the only thing it does is block the left side of my screen, covering other things that I do want to see. Not everyone is a tweetaholic. If this is an example of the "improvements" Brother Richard has been bragging about, I want no part of it. HOW DO I TURN THE FUCKING THING OFF?????
