Entry #4,327

This will be short, as I'm running late, because I overslept – because I had to watch the sunrise again. There's talk of the temperature reaching 75˚F today. Currently, it's at 64˚F.

Yesterday was mostly spent on another trip to the storage unit in Pawtucket, retrieving more material to take with me to Brown University next week. The first draft manuscript of The Five of Cups (circa 1993), for example, which is very different from what was published by Subterranean Press in 2003. And, from college, "Morality and Effect in Henry James' Turn of the Screw" (circa 1988). It's really strange seeing all this stuff again. And that's an understatement.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions, which include the first copies of the Brazilian edition of The Drowning Girl we've ever offered. This is the Portuguese translation. There's also a copy of the trade edition of Two Worlds and In Between and an ARC of Cherry Bomb. Have a look. Thanks.

I watched the first episode of Penny Dreadful last night, and while it's extremely derivative of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, I enjoyed it very, very much. It's a great-looking and well-acted production, and I'm looking forward to getting back to it tonight.
