This is the Chaos Manor Reviews site: I'm your host, Jerry Pournelle. I wrote the lead column in BYTE for 20 plus years. I'm also both an author and a writer of science fact and fiction, and I've had some political experience including as Executive Assistant to the Mayor and Director of Research for the City of Los Angeles.

Chaos Manor Reviews is the latest phoenix to rise from the ashes of the BYTE columns I have written since 1979. The BYTE column has been prepared monthly for more than twenty years. These Reviews will be done at whim, but generally weekly. I'll also add special reviews, both from me and from guests.
My primary profession is fiction, and that will get most of my attention, but there's always more to say about the computer revolution, and what hardware and software I've found useful.
We'll continue this as long as it's worth doing.

I've long run my main site, www.jerrypournelle.com, on the Public Radio model. That is, I occasionally remind readers that subscribing is a sincere form of flattery, and likely to keep me writing and posting both reader email and my replies on topics of interest. I also send out gentle reminders to those subscribers who've let their subscription lapse.
Getting started here, I'm going to put new columns on this site in the Open Archives. In a short while, I'll start putting new columns in the subscribers-only area. Access to that is going to be user/password access controlled. I'll change those on a regular basis, and send out the new credentials via email to current subscribers.
Subscribe to the Chaos Manor sites. Encourage me to keep writing on the subjects and topics that you've told me time and again interest you.
