Howard Hughes and the 50% Glass

Sunny at the moment, though "showers of snow and rain" are promised. It's currently 40˚F. If there is snow later, it will do nothing but make the day messy.

There was this enormous fucking dream this morning, but all I can recall is being in some museum's paleo' collection, excited about looking at the varanid lizards and rhyncosaurs.

No real writing yesterday. Just rewriting.

And this evening, there's the reading at the Lovecraft Arts and Sciences Council at the Westminster Arcade. I wish I could say that I'm looking forward to it. I have no idea what I'll be reading from. I suppose I need to figure that out. This will be my first reading since KGB in Manhattan back on March 18th of last year. I used to enjoy this sort of thing, long ago.

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

I did get some work in on Houses Under the Sea: Mythos Tales yesterday. I've added two stories to the manuscript, "The Peril of Liberated Objects, or the Voyeur's Seduction" and "At the Gate of Deeper Slumber," both written in 2009. I'm hoping to finish the proofreading next week, after I get Sirenia Digest #120 out. I've taken on unconscionably long time with this thing.

We watched more of The Expanse last night. I'm really getting into it, but I fear it's too slow and smart for the large audience it needs to keep going. It reminds me a little of Caprica, another smart SyFy series that wasn't given a chance to realize its potential.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

The Reading
Just enjoy it. I'd come if it wasn't so far. I live right near the Reader Con that you were featured in. People love to hear you read. It's part of being a writer with the only difference being you get instant gratification instead of waiting for the reviews.

The first season of the expanse is ten episodes. SyFy has ordered thirteen more episodes for season two. I just watched episode eight. I think that the network is perceiving the show as another Battlestar Galactica. Pretty sure they will give a better chance than Caprica.

titles
I really love the titles you come up with for your short stories (and novels). They are so evocative - they paint a picture all on their own.

I think the Expanse is being overshadowed by The Magicians (also on Syfy). I'm really looking forward to the season finale, which I'm sure will have something big.

The Magicians is worth checking out. It's swell done, well acted, not really original or complex, yet compelling. It is an obvious take on "Harry Potter goes to college" type of thing. I haven't read the books, but it seems as many people hate them as like them for a number of reasons, but the show is enjoyable so far.
