Welcome to the website of M. D. Taylor.  The site exists to share some of my writings (mainly science fiction and fantasy) and certain bits of mathematics.

I have two recent additions to the site.  One is a post on The Laws of Humanics, some idle thoughts inspired by Isaac Asimov’s Laws of Robotics.  The other addition is a science fiction serial titled Self-Storage.  It should turn out to ultimately be about eight or nine thousand words.  I hope to put up parts at roughly two week intervals.

Let me bring to your attention two notable local events, right here in Orlando.  One is the Thirty-Sixth International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts.  It will be held March 18-22 at the Marriot Orlando Airport Motel.  The other is OASIS 27, the annual convention of the Orlando Area Science Fiction Society.  It will be held May 1-3 at the International Palms Resort on International Drive.

There are a number of links on the Links page to local science fiction and fantasy groups, authors, and authors-in-the-making.  There is quite a bit of activity of that sort here in the Orlando area, though people who share these interests are often only hazily aware of one another.  This list is far from complete and will hopefully grow with time.

I put things up on a very irregular schedule, namely whenever I complete a piece that I think worth sharing.  (Some people will think I am often deluded.  Some will think this piece is worth sharing but not that one.)

On the mathematics front, I have put up A Crash Course in Geometric Algebra and Geometric Calculus.  You can find more about it on a subpage of the Math page.  This is an experiment.  The notes run five chapters and are brief and superficial.  The longer-range plan is that these brief notes will, in due course, be followed by a much longer and more complete book on the subject.

One of the pages on this site links to my e-book The Blue-Haired Shadow and Other Tales and to a reading of one of the stories.  Another concerns a character, Sir Hilary, who has appeared in two short stories and looks likely to show up in others as well.

The page labelled Miscellany is intended to have links to short pieces, some fiction, some less so.

I have a page with readings of some of my short stories; people can listen or download them.

Oh, and you might check out the blog by my sister, Linda Matthews:  My Bright Shiny Penny.
