The published stories were written for Datamation back around 1970. There are a couple of others that I'll reenter someday. (Note, I'm the author of the pieces, not the copyright holder. I don't think it's likely that whoever holds the copyright nowadays will want them taken down, but they have only to ask ...). Unlike the rest of the material on the site, these are not published under the Creative Commons License. The copyright holder can, if they choose, restrict your access to and use of them. The unpublished stuff is just that -- unpublished and, in many cases, unfinished.

Some fragments of a novel that will never be written. The original plan was to retrace Dante's path to Hell in reverse with lots of hopefully entertaining satire and social commentary. The problem turned out to be that I am a deeply flawed individual who finds Dante to be terminally boring. I'm quite sure that is my fault, not that of Signor Dante or his translators.
What does the working title -- Pangloss Lives! -- have to do with the content of the story? Nothing whatsoever. But it is a really fantastic title, No? (At least for those who have read Candide).

Links to sites I find interesting for one reason or another. Maybe you will also. I have many more, but the list needs to be examined in detail, and I won't have time for that for a while:
YOU ARE PROBABLY VIEWING THIS AT http://donaldkenney.x10.mx HOWEVER THERE WAS/IS ANOTHER COPY AT http://Donaldkenney/110mb.com THAT IS CURRENTLY MOSTLY INACCESSIBLE BOTH TO YOU AND ME. I PLAN TO UPDATE THE INFORMATION THERE TO THE LATEST VERSION SHOULD THE SITE EVER REAPPEAR FOR MORE THAN A FEW MOMENTS
This is a fairly minor update. Mostly I've just added new sites and fixed a few things. Separately, I've done a lot of work on creating usable regional maps of sites. But there's still a ways to go on that. And, sadly, none of it shows up in this release. Hopefully that will change in the next major release.
An additional (unanticipated) problem is that I've outgrown my web site construction toolset. So I've had to rebuild my tools. Unfortunately some stuff is still a bit broken. As a result, the new sites added in this version have some problems in their taxa lists and are not properly checked for being duplicates of existing sites which many of them are, but in many cases with additional/better information about the location or the fossils found there.
Plans for the future:
|site statistics from latlong.py|
|16854 sites in list||0 sites without position|
|16854 sites with latlong||0 sites with ddmmss format|
|1169 sites with PLSS/DLS positions||0 sites with only PLSS/DLSS positions|
|0 unconvertable locations||0 short entries|
|4 UTM locations||6636 Dubious locations|
|1 Possibly reversed locations||0 Unknown locations|
|0 Truncated Lat/Long||0 Unresolved locations|
|1 Positive longitudes*||795 PLSS/DLS Positions without PM|
|site statistics from fossfnd.py|
|16854 sites in list||0 tabulated sites|
|0 evaluated sites|
|0 unknown words||0 incorrect entries||881 words in supplement.txt|
*The positive(East) longitude is legitimate
I've added a three published stories to the fiction section and a fourth manuscript that probably was never submitted for publication.
And Pangloss Lives! (Fragments of a Novel) has grown a bit -- still a work in progress
NOTE: This version of the site has not been fully checked for dead/altered external links. I have a stand alone link validation process, but it's not especially satisfactory.
