It's grim mathematics, any close look at my movements since returning from Woodstock. In the past 12 days, I've been outside the house ~30 minutes, or 0.17% of that time. In theory, I'm going to do better today. But only in theory.

Among other things – including those things I can't divulge – I'm trying to get through the galleys of The Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan: Beneath an Oil-Dark Sea (Volume 2), a job that should have been done a month ago. And I'm a slow reader. Yesterday, it too me three hours to get through "In the Dreamtime of Lady Resurrection" and "Pickman's Other Model (1929)."

We watched almost all of the two seasons on Peaky Blinders, and I adore it. Not only does it address my passion for Cillian Murphy, period grime, industrial landscapes, beautiful clothes, and violence, the lion's share of its soundtrack consists of Nick Cave and P.J. Harvey. Kathryn has declared that it has the best music of any television series ever.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

"In the Dreamtime of Lady Resurrection"
That's a very intriguing title. I am looking forward to the new collection. I hope you have a productive day.

Re: "In the Dreamtime of Lady Resurrection"

It's an old story, written, I think, in 2007.

I have been bingeing on the last two seasons of Californication, although I will thankfully take any excuse to see Cillian Murphy in anything

Shut-in and Editing
It's so cold. Totally understand why you would hesitate to go out. So you are editing instead. It takes longer to edit than it does to write, at least for me. I believe I've read "Pickman's Other Model", just forgot which book it was in. I could be wrong though. I'm slowly cruising through The Ape's Wife, enjoying "One Tree Hill." Saw Joe Hill's Horns last night. January is a bitter month; at least this one is.
Looking forward to your second Best Of. I'm also hoping Robert McCammon does a Matthew Corbett 6th book for reasons I won't say.

Right: I suspect I should see this. Thank you.
