It’s Going to Be All Right (2022)

It has become almost a cliche to refer to these times with anxious adjectives: These challenging times, these trying times, these unprecedented times, these stressful times, these times, these times, these times.

For more than a decade now, the world has gotten angrier and meaner and more afraid. Log into your favorite “social media” site, anytime, and someone will alert you about some outrage, someone will warn you about some threat, and someone will be shouting down voices of reason and calm and peace.

This book has a simple but powerful message: Never mind that the world is scary and raging; if you reach inside to a calm place, you’ll find the most basic of truths: It’s going to be all right. Oh, change is inevitable, and tomorrow will not look like yesterday, but it’s going to be all right. ORDER THE EBOOK FROM AMAZON … OR THE PAPERBACK FROM YOUR FAVORITE STORE (BARNES & NOBLE).

Echoes of Freedom Past (2022, 2023)

History doesn’t repeat itself, but you can hear its echoes every day. The same wind that brings echoes of past foolishness also brings echoes of lost freedoms, echoes that are never quite stilled.

This is a little book about what used to be, what is, and what could be if we wish to reclaim it.

There is a section about freedom and the Bill of Rights. There is a section about what has been happening in the last several years, and how everything changed, almost in a blink. And there is a section of hope for the future, because most of us want to be free, want to be left alone to live our personal vision of our best life, and want to respect everyone’s right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, as long as they don’t infringe on other people’s equal rights to those things.

This collection of essays about freedom includes the poignant short story “Letters from Camp.”


FULL: Rockets, Bells & Poetry (2021)

“My God, I’m full of words.”

“The dance of the pen across the page is a deer prancing in the snow, kids racing through the grass, a performance car zipping across the flats so fast the videographer struggles to keep the machine in the frame.”

Here are notes, aphorisms and poems in three mini-collections: “The Creative Soul,” reflections on making art and the power of words; “Live Free Or Die,” thoughts about liberty, self-expression and emerging from dystopia; and “You Can Do This,” encouraging words of finding light in a darkening world.

Gladness is Infectious (2020)

Add to the beauty or add to the despair: Each of us has two choices every day.

The choice is there, every morning – to ride the light out of darkness and live in peace, striving for harmony against the discord.

Refuse to be Afraid (2010, 2020)

Fear has become the motivating factor in this contemporary world of ours. Life is portrayed as a maelstrom of forces beyond the power of the individual to tame.

It’s a lie. You can tame the maelstrom, if you can tame your fear.

This short but powerful book is designed to help you plow through the nagging doubts and outright fears of various sizes and shapes that are keeping you from living your best life. Faced with a scary reality, it challenges you to navigate past the anxiety, refuse to be afraid, and free yourself to move on to your dreams.

“When this wonderful little book by Warren Bluhm first dropped into my hands a decade ago, I thought it was important. Today, I think it’s particularly vital.” — Wally Conger


How to Play a Blue Guitar (2020)

The Zero Aggression Principle states, “No one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being for any reason whatever; nor should anyone advocate the initiation of force, or delegate it to anyone else.”

This quirky little book contains two dozen poems, short stories, prose poems and aphorisms around the theme of finding a way to live and let live in peace — to co-exist without forcing a way of life on people.

Because “The way you play a blue guitar is the same as the way you play any guitar … It’s built with the same workings, potential melodies and chords, hopes and dreams as any other color guitar. Kind of like people.”

The Imaginary Revolution (2012)

The people of Sirius 4 tried to overcome tyranny the old-fashioned way: by force. It turned out to be an imaginary revolution, replacing one violent regime with another. Raymond Douglas Kaliber suggested another way: that free people living by a spirit of non-aggression could live in peace and prosperity with one another. Before he could launch that bold experiment, however, he had to defeat the greatest tyrant of them all: his best friend … Set in the same universe as the interplanetary romp The Imaginary Bomb, this novel sets a different tone, told in the voice of the man who led a planet to true freedom.



A Scream of Consciousness (2011)

There has to be something more to life than moving through a haze. And every now and then, it gets to you. You just want to wake up, smile at God and the universe and shout: I’m alive! I’m here! I’m ready to make a difference! That’s a scream of consciousness. This book is about getting conscious and staying alive, moment by moment.

The Imaginary Bomb (2008)

So his ex is a terrorist. Now what?

It’s bad enough that government couriers have commandeered Bob’s space freighter to transport a secret cargo.

Now his ship has been hijacked again by polite thugs led by a masked woman whose voice sounds awfully familiar. She and her gang take the secret cargo.

The couriers say it’s a gang of thieves. But the government took his ship, so who are the thieves?

Bob has to figure out which side he’s on before something else goes horribly wrong, like the moon exploding. Wait, what?

You’ll love The Imaginary Bomb because everybody enjoys a fast-paced space opera with a love triangle.
