Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,
Robert E. Vardeman proprietor

Lost again. I mean the NM-AZ Book Awards where my Fate of the Kinunir lost to Weston Ochse (again). Such is life. Above are 3 different NM Book Award "losers" but I think all are winners in enjoyment and downright fine entertainment value. Tis the season!

NaNoWriMo is still not going well for me this year because of so many life interruptions. Plus I am struggling not to get a cold. Sniffling a little, but not much. These days I don't get so many colds but they still mutate within me now and again. Last year I caught something that lasted months. Not sick, not well. Just dangling in limbo between. Hope this won't be like that since I still have 20k worth of words to do on NaNoWriMo. Next month is a launch into a spate of short stories, so gotta do the book now.

Is there anyone out there familiar with Zen cart? Drop me a line. Really. Please.

Theatrical movies, reprise: Interstellar -- I finally figured out the ending to my satisfaction. Not as contentious as Inception and very upbeat. It didn't seem that way while I sat in the theater but does now. Definitely want to see this one again. I've heard 2D doesn't have the deafening soundtrack, too.

Follow me on Twitter It's the small things in life... Or at least the 140 character ones.

Blog banter.

Empires of Steam and Rust! Great news. ESR was part of a Kickstarter project and is featured as a scenario in a RPG from Lester Smith. Steve Sullivan did great work getting it ready to go. Check out his ESR novel Heart of Steam and Rust.

My e-books on the catalog page. Great stuff. Really.

iPad viewing: Finished the 2nd season of the Miss Fisher Mysteries and have launched into season 2 of Peaky Blinders. All I can say is, wow, the last shot of season 1 ending was turned on its head by first minute of season 2 opener. Well done!

iPad reading: Not a great deal that wasn't research oriented.

Regular cable stuff: Gotham. Hell on Wheels is over until it comes back for a final 5th season. And Netflix picked up Longmire. Good for them. They're going with a winner and I don't need to ever go back to A&E.

Wishing you all a very gobble-licious Thanksgiving.
