Happy Birthday to ME

I’m 39 today.

People keep asking me how does it feel to be old?

The scarier question is how does it feel to be middle-aged?

Pretty good, actually.

Especially since right now I’m having coffee while watching Captain Zoom lick his ass with the carefree abandon of a creature who cares nothing for birthdays, and is, as Borges pointed out, effectively immortal, given that he knows fuck-all about death.

I told him, but he wouldn’t listen.  I said, “Captain Zoom, death will come and wrap you in its steely arms, hahahaahahahahaahahaha.”

He pondered this, and then continued to lick his ass.

    Happy Birthday. Let me use this opportunity to thank you on creating an absolutely stunning sci-fi/action/thriller story. Your books are so captivating and refreshingly different. Well, thanks!

    Didn’t realize today was your birthday! Happy Birthday Dave! Norbert (above) is spot on – your work is truly refreshing and I’m glad to have found your work. No doubt Captain Zoom cares not for the immaterial things in life such as birthdays…though licking his backside is something that can’t go undone or unnoticed.

    I approach this same date later in the year. The real question is whether we’ll make it to 40.

    Happy birthday!
    The age of 39 can be great:

    We are getting old only in our head.
