Now that we're finished with that Black Friday and CyberMonday hysteria, it's time for my annual Christmas poem:
Twas the week before Christmas,
And all through the house,
Every creature was fretting
And starting to grouse.
Then from UPS
Came a gift flowerpot
From a friendly old colleague
Whose gift I'd forgot.
But then I remembered:
Don't feel like a schnook
In just a few minutes
I can send a great book
No wrapping, no breakage,
No address to scrawl,
No trade-ins, no trouble,
'Cause one size fits all.
So boot up your browser,
And don't be a schnook.
In a fistful of keystrokes
You can send a fine book.
Naturally, I recommend one of my novels for a fun read and fitting gift—perfect for smart adults and bright teenagers.
For just $6.99 each (or less when buying more than one), you can go to http://www.thewomenofpower.org to read about each story and what reviewers said. Then you can send your friends engaging, exciting stories, each one that also carries one or more science/technology themes.
These novels are my attempts to put the science back in science fiction and the techno back in techno-thrillers.
The Residue Class Mysteries Themes
The Freshman Murders: Computers, Culture, Genealogy
Where There's a Will There's a Murder: Mathematics, Anthropology
The Death Lottery: Randomness, Programming, Espionage

And if you've already gifted everyone on your list, I invite you to try one of my novels for yourself. As always, if it doesn't fit for you, I’ll gladly return your money.
Have a wonderful Holiday every day,
