Spooky Action at a Distance is a phrase that physicists have been muttering for several years now. It was actually proven just last year that you can transmit data using entangled photons.

What is really exciting about this latest research is that it appears we might be able to move matter the same way.

A FREE book is available from Harper Collins. With a name like Nymphos of Rocky Flats, how can you refuse!

Just for the steampunk enthusiasts among us, here are some fantastic examples of the creative arts.

Impressed, I am!

A Review of The Reluctant Dom by Tymber Dalton

Powerful. That is the very first word that came to mind after finishing Tymber Dalton’s novel in one sitting.

Several important items caught my attention as I was reading it. The first is that she got it right. This is decidedly not the Story of O or Claiming of Sleeping Beauty fantasy treatment of a dominate and submissive relationship. This is very close to the reality of a twenty four, seven, real-life situation. Congratulations on doing a lot of homework and making a fascinating sub-culture come alive for us, Tymber! The next highlight is believable characters. I found it all too easy to suspend my disbelief and think of the characters as friends from a popular fetish club.

The Reluctant Dom is an impressive work that deserves wide-spread recognition from within the bdsm community. Equally important is the fact it has a flow and continuity that is rare these days.

Lyrical Press has a winner with this one and finally, yes damn it, yes! I did cry at one point. Nobody can say The Reluctant Dom isn’t an emotional roller-coaster of a read. Bring a box of tissues and prepare to enjoy yourself.

Back in the 1970s, NASA commisioned some studies of space habitats. From this research we got Gerald O’Neal’s famous “Colonies in Space” book as well as engineering design studies from several major universities. In order to visualize some of the designs, they commisioned some artists to show what they might look like. Here are some of the better images:
