About

The Optimist’s Umbrella is the home for the creative works of William Brust, Atlanta area author and adventurer.  

On this site, you will find the continuing adventures of Bubblegum-Man and In His Spare Time.

I occasionally blog about politics, spirituality, and fantasy/scifi stuff. Sometimes, I get everybody’s hopes up by saying my book is almost done (which it is, perpetually).

You can tweet me @TheTrueConq (I’m so lonely!) or @10000ce (history comes alive!)
We update sometimes!
