Results are in on

If you enjoy pictures like the one shown on the cover of my latest project—taken at Duluth, MN. in 1966—then you’ll really enjoy my new Zenith City and Beyond 2016 digital image disc that’s available now. I announced this CD in October and made it available to subscribers for a small donation beginning on November 21st.

Positive vibes are already reaching my email INBOX, such as this one: "Just got my CD and absolutely love it! So many photos of places I have worked, brought back many memories. Thanks again for keeping Twin Ports Rail History alive." Vicki G.

As Vicki already discovered, my new CD contains 500 digital display images covering the Twin Ports of Duluth, Superior and surrounding communities—including the Mesabi Range. She used this link to find out much more information about this product before she made a small donation of just 4 cents an image!

Please check it out for yourself: conta.cc/2j3hGgI

My 2016 digital image disc is designed to be viewed digitally—perfect for viewing on your favorite digital device. And if you’re a historian like me then you’ll be happy to learn that you can use my images in a history presentation of your own, as long as they are not modified in any way. These aren’t just quick scans and copies like virtually every other history photo CD on the market today. Each of these images has been restored to remove the dust, fingerprints, film blemishes and scratches. Quality varies depending on the age and condition of the original, but overall—they look pretty darn good.

Content includes both color and black & white images that you can view on your computer through a CD-ROM drive or through your HDTV if connected to your computer network. No special software needed. Each image is its own file. Click through them one at a time or watch in slide show mode on your computer or HDTV. This is silent, no music or annoying beeps or clicks. It’s all about the photos, and each is made from an original film negative or positive.

Railroads include at minimum:

Burlington Northern Railroad
Chicago & North Western Railway
Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range Railway
Duluth & Northeastern Railroad
Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific Railway
Great Northern Railway
Lake Superior Terminal & Transfer Railway
Northern Pacific Railway
Milwaukee Road
Soo Line

I’ve included many different industrial topics from around the area too. There are pictures taken from the air and high vantage points, shots of depots, buildings, bridges, trains, train cars, steam and diesel locomotives and details, boats, industries, ore docks, ore trains, ore cars, ore mines, signs, railroad men, interlocking towers, rail yards, roundhouses, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. The oldest image on the CD go back to 1889 while most were taken during the 1950s-1980s. Only a scant handful are more recent than 1980. So please consider making a donation today to help me do much more in 2017. There is a book in the works too so be sure that you are subscribed to my once-a-month e-Newsletter to receive those updates by email.

Thanks so much for your interest and very kind support.

Hot Shot Z Trains

Hot Shot Z Trains

In the last portion of the 20th Century, this train was known on the Atchinson, Topeka & Santa Fe as the 991. Seen here, the ZWSPNBY speeds through Empire, CA., on a warm afternoon. This train crew is doing their best to make up time as computers in Fort Worth, TX., are causing havoc system wide. Meanwhile, the Amtrak California San Joaquin train I was aiming for, leaves a trail of dust in the distance.

Cherryh, C. J. – Cyteen (1988 BCE HB)

Cherryh, C. J. - Cyteen (1988 BCE HB)

Cyteen
Warner Books/SFBC, 1988
853 pages
Cover art by Don Maitz
Jacket Design by Don Puckey

From the dust jacket:
The innermost nature of the human mind and heart becomes to key to an epic struggle for power…and a riveting story of politics and passions, manipulation and love, destiny and individual courage. Set in the universe of the Hugo Award-winning Downbelow Station, S. F. master C. J. Cherryh again brings us a wonderfully detailed world…and her most challenging and mature work to date.

CYTEEN is the story of Ariane Emory: brilliant, corrupt, a genius in genetics, psychology, rape, and blackmail. She dominates the Council of Nine, as head of the expansionist party of the Multiworld Union, and is despot of the territory Resune, where her laboratories create the one product essential to Cyteen: people. They are the "azi," human workers and soldiers artificially grown, computer trained, and owned by Resune, and hence Ariane Emory. After one hundred and twenty years of life and fifty years of rule, Emory is murdered. But not for long…

CYTEEN is the story of the Project: the plan to replicate Ariane Emory. Creating a genetic double is routine for Resune’s bio-technology, but nature is not nurture, and clones are still human beings. For the Project to succeed, Emory’s followers have to subject the clone to every formative influence of the tyrant’s life, keep her innocent of history, protect her from Emory’s enemies, and oppress or silence anyone who might, even accidentally, disrupt the program.

CYTEEN is also the story of Ari: a little girl driven to solve a mystery she can sense, but not define. A child thrown into a storm of global upheaval when her creation is made public, she inherits a stranger’s face and past, enemies and victims. She must wield her predecessor’s power to save herself, even from people she loves. And to survice, she must find out if she’s a puppet crafted by a dead megalomaniac – or the one person who can defuse a socio-genetic time bomb threatening to destroy her planet. For only Ariane Emory can save Cyteen…
