starbreaker

a grumpy old techie, out-of-print sf author, heretic, and long-haired metalhead

Hello. I’m Matt Cambion, and this is my personal and thoroughly unprofessional website: a space for science fantasy, heavy metal, Unix, and occasional forays into reality.

If you have a browser with a built-in feed reader, you can easily read these. Otherwise, you’ll need a feed reader. You might want to start with The Old Reader, which aims to be a replacement for the late, lamented Google Reader.
