Science Fiction & Semi-Fiction

    Hi, there, I'm Ed Howdershelt. If you arrived here as a result of clicking a Tripod URL at the end of one of my books, here's why...

    Back in the late 1990's I set up pages here at Tripod because:

1. I had just started writing and didn't know how far I'd go with it,

2. They had 'How-To' guides for everything to do with web pages,


3. They offered competent, dependable web-space for free.

    Somewhere along the line my writing became more than a hobby.

    All of my science fiction titles (about 20) and my post-Civil War semi-western appeared on the bestseller list at for a few months each directly following their releases. In fact, that's how I knew I had talent enough to continue. :)

   Today my titles are sold by Barnes & Noble, Amazon, SONY, Powell's Books, Fictionwise, and other places around the Internet.

   Searching will turn up my titles at various places as well as a quote from 1971:

"There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, and ammo. Please use in that order."-Ed Howdershelt

   On the right sidebar are links to those bookstores and my other website.
