One day, perhaps, I will be jaded to having a new book release, but today is not that day. And my enthusiasm will only grow between now and March 13th. Cooler still, the […]

What’s up with “VR Experiences?”

Posted by Rampant Coyote on February 23, 2018

When I first started getting interested in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (two elements of “cyberpunk” that actually sounded desirable), it was the early 1990s, and there was very little of either technology to be found outside […]

The SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch

Posted by Rampant Coyote on February 7, 2018

Technically, I guess this counts as another release. 🙂  I’m really excited to read this one… at least what I haven’t read already. The CRPG Book project is now complete.
