So, I believe I have finally, on this try, beat the Seroquel. Last night, I slept seven hours and a little more. And I awoke with my mind more or less clear. I've been asleep since last December. It's been a miserable few days and an unpleasant few days. But maybe now I can get back to work that amounts to more than just answering email and checking word counts and such.

We're probably going to get our first substantial snow of the season tomorrow night, and, of course, I'm not ready for it. I'm not sure I'll ever again in my life be ready for snow, not after last winter.

We were promised sun today, and we have a lead-grey sky, instead.

Please have a look at the new eBay auctions. As I said yesterday, these include a copy of the Spanish edition of The Drowning Girl (La Joven Ahogada), with Santiago Caruso's beautiful cover.

Last night – well, after dark, I mean – UPS delivered the page proofs for Beneath an Oil-Dark Sea: The Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan (Volume Two). It's a very heavy box filled with pages of very small print.

I think that's all for now.
