Well, it’s just after midnight here, meaning it’s now Friday, June 29, 2007 — and that day happens to be the 12th anniversary of my website. I was, by all accounts, the very first science-fiction writer to have a website, and it’s been of enormous value to me over the last dozen years.

The website went live on June 29, 1995 (the week before came online). My site (or “home page,” as we called them back then) started with 23,000 words of text, and precisely one photo. The text consisted of six novel excerpts, three short stories, some review excerpts, a little biographical information, and a little recent news.

Today, the website has well over a million words of text, and (of course!) hundreds of photos, including the smiling one above that beams out from each page on my site. :)
