The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

Found this while looking for something on my site. It’s from September 17, 2003. The missionary position I’m pretty sure I terrified a young, just-out-of-missionary school Mormon this afternoon. I heard a soft knock on my door and voices, leading … Continue reading
Yep, that’s what I’m going to be doing this week–retrieving files I wrote using XyWrite, which was a fabulous word processing program written by some of the guys that brought you Atex, the typesetting system I learned in the early … Continue reading
I have written before about my evolution as a blogger. But that was mostly a history of the media I used. Not the activism I practiced. I guess it started in 1987, when I got my first letter to the … Continue reading
You might have noticed that I’ve been putting up posts from my past. That’s because in April, this blog will celebrate its tenth anniversary. I’ve been blogging since before Instapundit—since before anyone in the current JBlogosphere, in fact. And this … Continue reading

In the summer of 2002, I had just moved to Richmond, VA, and was talked into taking part in the Blogathon, a 24-hour blog-posting marathon designed to raise money for the charity of your choice. This was my 10:30 a.m. … Continue reading
This post was first published on April 2, 2002. It occurs to me that I need one simple question answered, and only one. Let’s for the moment drop all of my arguments about the Palestinian suicide bombings, the refugee problems; … Continue reading
This was first posted on March 30, 2002, during the seige of Arafat’s headquarters in Ramallah. Eat your heart out, Drudge. Glenn, ya snooze, ya lose. Yourish.com has obtained the actual transcripts of Yasser Arafat’s phone calls to world leaders … Continue reading
This post was originally posted on March 10, 2002. (It’s the post that started my schism with my left-leaning blog circle of that time.) About a week and a half ago, I found a brief mention of my first essay … Continue reading
This post was first published on February 27, 2002 For the past couple of months, I’ve noticed that Qatar turns up regularly in my web stat demographics. It may be a spider; it may be a spammer using someone else’s … Continue reading
This post was originally published on January 26, 2002. A couple of days ago, I was in the lunchroom at work, standing in line to pay for my purchase. I work at a college. You need to know that, because … Continue reading
I have stumbled on a new year gift of a kind in the Guardian. It’s a letter by professor Emeritus MoshÃ© Machover, grandly titled “Israel, Jews and the peace process”. The letter is relatively short and is worth reading in … Continue reading
In honor of the east coast’s recent deluge of snow, Transterrestial Musings points out a relevant collection of Calvin and Hobbes cartoons. Some people were inspired to follow Calvin’s lead. I suppose I could do without the red food coloring. … Continue reading
