News and Video

A fascinating thing about writing books is that I almost never know who’s reading them. I just have to embrace the mystery.

And a fun thing about having a sister who works in schools and libraries is that she revealed part of the mystery today, after a student pulled The Drake Equation out of his backpack to read!

I know this is embarrassing for both of us, but the new, revised, updated edition of The Pocket Guide to Spy Stuff comes out on August 14. And not to brag, but you’ve never seen anything like it!

LEGAL NOTE: You may have seen something like it. However, this *updated* version is stuffed with expanded material on timely topics like misinformation, propaganda, and spy-jinks! Plus, jokes. Jokes are good.

And pre-orders are even better! 😇
 It’s at Indiebound,  Powell’s, 
Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Or, just ask your local library to order it!

But fan mail that combines a near-death experience with a whiff of blasphemy?

Wow! This was sent by Ethan and Rowan Eshbaugh-Soha, who along with their mom Michelle, have written their own book. It’s called “Food Wars: A Noodle of Hope.” The novel is a bit like a quality book version of the movie “Space Balls” — and it’s really, really funny! I gave it five stars at Amazon. Thanks, Eshbaugh-Sohas!
