Overcast today, but a little warmer. Currently, it's 47˚F, no windchill.

Yesterday, I wrote 1,164 words on "Untitled Psychiatrist #2," which will be appearing in Sirenia Digest #133. And today Agents of Dreamland is released to readers all the world round, and I ought to be glad, and I ought to be excited. But I'm not. This isn't the same world in which the novella was written. It's not the world for which it was written. And I just can't seem to find any enthusiasm in me to celebrate.

I'm having a lot of trouble understanding how I am to be the writer that I am in this world.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thank you.

I finished Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses for a second time. And I learned that you shouldn't use Murray's pomade unless you want to learn what it's like to try and wash candle wax out of your hair.

Resistance, Peace, and Compassion,
Aunt Beast

The best part of running your own independent bookstore is that you can make a display of your favorite authors on the front table for no good reason and then use your amazing carny barker skills to tell people how empty their lives will be without reading these books. "The Red Tree" is already on my display, "Agents of Dreamland" goes up today! I'll send you a photo later. :)

Agents of Dreamland
When I retired at the end of last September, a friend at work gave me an Amazon gift card. I just used up the last of it to buy AoD. I hope we both live long enough that I might run into you at a con or somewhere and have you sign it for me. :)

Murray's Superior
I used to love this stuff when I was fifteen! Your mention made me laugh.

Indeed, my copy came in the mail this morning - so excited to pick it up after work, very shortly.

It's a valuable life lesson!

Try British Brylcream - the one in the red pot. American in the tube tends to be oily.

Groom and Clean is interesting too. I'd try it from a comparison I just looked at.
