The Black Dragon, Chapter 31, part 1,

I was going to get the Mermaid story ready to put up on kindle. The story has been broken up into nine books of 100 to 160k and I’ve been editing the series right along. but Tom and Chrissie’s story came to an end, at least their life before kids did.

There were other things and bad characters that showed up that other members of the bureau and family had to deal with that I just felt compelled to write so here is part one of the Black Dragon. You will see some things from chapter 30 repeated in chapter 31. That is because when I wrote them, the Black Dragon story was germinating in my head and I wanted to write the story down. Book nine of the Mermaid story has had those sections pulled, but for various reasons I wanted to make sure that the text was easy to insert into the new book, so I put it in Chapter 31 where it really belonged. So we start with new characters and a new mystery in the Black Dragon.

Tech Stuff 96

This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another. It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity. It might relate to science large or small. It might be art for art’s sake. Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries. So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old. So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways. Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of. So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.

This week, Hong Kong mailboxes, electronic stickers, King Tiger tank, a factory in Brooklyn and more.
