stark realities -- Facts and Fictions is the business umbrella beneath which all my creative endeavors take place. It has been my service mark since I first moved to California in 1980.

I became a full-time writer when my wife and I moved to Mariposa, California -- home of Yosemite National Park, the crown jewel in the United States' National Park System -- in October, 2000.
In Spring of 2002, I attempted to self-syndicate a column called "Stark's Reality". My attempt failed, foundered on the rocks of the U.S. newspaper publishing industry's economic contraction in the face of plunging ad revenues.
So, what the heck, I've decided to make the sample columns I crafted available here, in Adobe PDF format. )After all, I'd hate for the effort to have been entirely wasted.) They're about 200KB apiece, so be advised:

Beginning in 2003, I hope to be occupied full time researching and writing a historical novel about Alexander the Great.
As part of that effort, I've added chapter numbers to the plublic-domain Dryden translation of Plutarch's "Life of Alexander" for the benefit of folks who may be trying to track citations of Plutarch's biography in other texts.
