Abintra Press Move now points to this blog because it seems to require no user maintenance.

One of my usual websites ( and ) requires a monthly login, which might soon be very difficult due to my advanced COPD.

If one or both those sites disappear because I'm hospitalized or worse and can't login, this blog can at least preserve my thoughts for a while.

Amazon handles my book sales: is my author page.

PS: the original purpose of this blog is located here:


  1. Mr your 3rd World books. I hope you are well.
    Miss Kitty

  2. Hi, Miss Kitty.
    Nope, it won't get better without 1. Divine intervention or 2. (and far more likely, if they'd just start working on people instead of experimenting on animals) a new set of cloned lungs.
    But thanks for the thought.

  3. Hang in there Ed. People are still interested in your work!

  4. Best wishes, Ed. I have really enjoyed your books.

  5. Any news on Ed? I've not seen anythign from him in about a year.

  6. I would also like to know about Ed and how he’s doing. If anyone has news and would like to provide an update, please post.

  7. Ed Howdershelt, RIP:

    EDWARD ARTHUR HOWDERSHELT Wellman Edward Arthur Howdershelt, born June 11, 1949, died Friday, Aug. 16, 2019.

    Born in Fort Meade, Md., Ed grew up in Pennsylvania and Texas with his nose in a book before embarking on life in Vietnam, Ramstein AFB, Germany, Israel, Africa, and then back to Texas and Florida, settling to an end near Wellman. He was a soldier, medic, courier, mercenary, protector of wildlife, scourge of poachers, horseman, artist, computer nerd and Linux aficionado, a lover of good music, books, women, science fiction, Vulcans, flying - whether crop duster, chopper or hang glider, and cats of all sizes.

    Ultimately, as an author he wrote his experiences into some 37 books and stories he referred to as semi-fiction. He is survived by a sister, Flo; several children of his late wife; his companion, Cynthia; and a number of cats. He is deeply missed.

    Powell Funeral Home in Wellman is assisting Edward and his family.

  8. As a long term reader of Ed's books in the UK, I am so sorry to hear this news. I'd e-mailed him from time to time about his books, and tried recently again. Now I know why there was no news. I shall carry on re-reading his fiction & semi-fiction. They are brilliant adventures in such a gloomy world, with Ed's own unique world view interwoven with the stories.
