Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,
Robert E. Vardeman proprietor
Fantasy. Oodles of fantasy. Two of the titles can be found on
my newly renovated online store. Give it a spin. Looks good, sells
Over the next month or two I will be adding titles to the online
store, as well as updating some of the existing titles since ebook
tech has changed since many titles were put up quite a few years
back. And if you haven't signed up with my mailing list, do so.
I want to move from the ZenCart list to MailChimp since it gives
you more options as a subscriber.
Just saw that Bill Crider is seriously ill. All the best going
out to him. I have loved his stuff ever since we were doing NicK
Carter books at the same time in the early '80s. (He did Coyote
Connection). His later work covered westerns and mysteries and
he is currently president of Western Fictioneers. Here's hoping
those folks at MD Anderson work miracles, Bill.
Trail of the Emerald Unicorn is done, all 10k words of
it. For a view of what the video might look like, hie on over
to Martin Cameron's
Patreon site (and sign up. It's worthwhile).
Coming up before the end of the summer is a great space opera
anthology, Rockets Red Glare. I'll keep you posted (especially
since it has my story, "Jupiter Convergence" in it)
Theatrical movies: Off to see Star Tek tomorrow as a reward
for finishing Trail of the Emerald Unicorn.

My e-books on the catalog
page. Great stuff.
iPad viewing: Finished Persons Unknown, from 2010. Sort
of a low-grade Prisoner with the Illuminati thrown in.
Not great. Also finished Stranger Things. Not the greatest
ever but worth spending a few hours watching.
Major time sink on the horizon. Aug 9 No Man's Sky is
slated for release. This is one video game that looks like a,
excuse the expression, game changer in the way it is structured.
Every planet is unique because it is generated only when you land
iPad reading: Almost finished with #5 in the Travis McGee series.
Not much time for pleasure reading.
Dead tree reading: Doctors in Gray about Confederate Civil
War surgeons. Interesting that the Union's prison camps were almost
as bad as Andersonville. Almost meaning 22% death rather than
25%. The winner gets to write history (and in the doing, forget
Elmira--or Hellmira, as the survivors called it).
Saw Welcome to Night Vale at the Kimo downtown. The cast
looks nothing like I expected. "Ghost Story" was a clever
use of the Night Vale background and interestingly structured
to tease with every pause. If they come near you, go.

in on a story from along the Cenotaph Road.
