I find myself a little malazy, not to mention swamped. SO, pre-posted hangovers it is. Things should settle down over the weekend and I’ll try for some actual substance next week. (Oh, and yes, I will NaDruWriNi
tomorrow Saturday–even better–though likely with less of an intoxication factor than the spirit of the event calls for.)
Sidenote: Finished watching VM Season 1 last night; so excellent, must now rewatch all this season so far. I’ll probably do a post next week about the strange mental phenomenons that happen when you "catch up" to a good series television show.
- Mark Rich reviews Rick Bowes’ From the Files of the Time Rangers over at Strange Horizons.
- Margo Lanagan has an excellent, desperation-inducing quote from Peter Carey: There’s this question people have, how should I really be doing this? Students always think when they’re proper writers their self-doubt and their uncertainty will go away. I say to them, this is what you’re choosing for your life. You think you feel bad now, you wait. Because that’s the nature of writing.
- Boing Boing has a post about excellent Cubist paint jobs on military ships in WWI.
- Chris Barzak‘s "The Boy Who Was Born Wrapped in Barbed Wire" is up at Endicott Studio’s Journal of Mythic Arts.
- Colleen gushes about Cecil Castellucci’s new book The Queen of Cool. Christopher just called to inform me there was a copy in the mail today: yay!
- CAAF’s back. Another yay!
