This website counts as a published work, I suppose. I have spotted visitors in my log file from every continent except Antarctica. Since I used to work for the US Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab, I know people who travel to Antarctica regularly, so someday I will probably get some hits from there as well. (Perhaps I have gotten some Antarctic hits already, ya never know!) I would love to get more hits, and I would also love to get more people clicking on the links on these pages.

Here is a link back to my Home page, just in case you haven't seen it yet or want to go back.

Occasionally I will post links to things I have written on the site, even though they might be of peripheral relevance to whatever the heck it is that this site is about. Like, ya know:

"The Forgotten Liars: the Tammi Honig Story": (Xlibris, 2004)

You probably already know about this book unless you got here without seeing my home page first. The Forgotten Liars is my version of the Great American Novel, a sweeping view of a tiny slice of the late 1970s and early 1980s. If nothing else, The Forgotten Liars certainly is American and it certainly is sweeping.

Estimated Snow Parameters for Vehicle Mobility Modeling in Korea, Germany and Interior Alaska: Special Report 95-23: with Roy E. Bates (US Army Cold Regions Lab, 1995)

This is a technical report I coauthored with Roy Bates while working at CRREL in Hanover, NH. It contains a few ideas for estimating average snow depth based on more readily available climatic parameters such as snowfall, precipitation, temperature, etc. There are many references to it on the web.

"Untitled." on the CD "Frog Peak Collaborations": (Frog Peak, 1998)

I was one of several dozen artists who contributed to a 2-CD anthology on Larry Polansky's Frog Peak record label. The pieces are all exactly one minute long and are all derived from the same sample, of Chris Mann reading one of his poems. I originally intended for my piece to be called "The Pragmatic Signal" but it ended up being entitled "Untitled." I created it using CoolEdit shortly after Princess Diana died. Frog Peak Catalog #FP19.

The simplest way to get the actual CD is to buy it from Frog Peak. It is catalog number FC19. You can order it from the CD Catalog page on the web site or by phone or mail. The last time I checked the price was US$20 for a 2-CD set. The contact info is:

A Stranger in the Kingdom: directed and produced by Jay Craven

This is as good a place as any to mention the fact that I was an extra in Jay Craven's 1998 film A Stranger in the Kingdom, based on the novel by Howard Frank Mosher. The novel is a wide-ranging magical-realist epic which weaves together over a dozen subplots spanning 200 years of history in the fictional town of Kingdom Common, Vermont. The movie concentrates on a recent subplot, about a black retired Air Force chaplain who comes to town in the mid 1950s to be the local minister and ends up getting framed for murder. It's an interesting movie with a great cast, starring Ernie Hudson as Rev. Walt Andrews. I got to work with Hudson in the scenes I was in, and I played a beer-soaked onlooker during the climactic scene where Rev. Andrews punches out a local bully named Harlan Kittredge (played by Rusty De Wees.) This is a rare example of a film about Vermont made by Vermonters, showing what goes on outside the frame of the quaint picture postcard.

During my week or so back in the fall of 1996 as an extra, I got to meet and work with such wonderful actors (aside from Ernie Hudson and Rusty De Wees) as David Lansbury, Bill Raymond, John Griesemer, Henry Gibson, and Tantoo Cardinal, amongst others. Some of the other noteables who appear in the film are Martin Sheen, the late Carrie Snodgress, Jean Louisa Kelly and the late Fred Tuttle. There is a new enhanced DVD edition which was just released in October 2004. And, any one of the several versions of the film is well worth renting and/or buying!

As a writer, I am pleased to note that the novelist Howard Frank Mosher was fully involved in the making of the film. Mosher's involvement went far beyond simply collaborating on the screenplay: Jay Craven actually used Mosher's barn in Chelsea, Vermont as a soundstage, and he also pitched crafts tents on Mosher's lawn. This is one case where the writer was not banished from the set!

'Zines and Such

In the 1980s, I appeared in several very small literary magazines, including The National Poetry Magazine of the Lower East Side, Shiny International (the arts and poetry zine edited by Michael Friedman and Stephen Hall, not the fetish porno mag), Big Scream (edited by David Cope), and Contact II.

And, I published poems in several student publications while attending Columbia and USC. One of these magazines, The Columbia Review, actually does have a website.

At Columbia, I was on the editorial board of The Columbia Barnard Course Guide (now defunct) and the Jester of Columbia (still in existence.)
