"I just know that i’m heading from the dead things piling up behind me."

Cooler today, but sunny. It's 47˚F, and we may reach 60˚F. My sister posted photos from her house in Leeds. It's so green there, the spring of my memory. But at least, come 2 ayem, I'll be in the same time zone as the rest of East Coast. This was my twelfth year to remain on Daylight Savings Time all year round. I look forward to the year when the whole country follows suit. As it is, DST has become "normal," comprising a full two thirds of the year. I can say that I was a temporal pioneer.

Winter is almost dead. The Equinox is a mere eight days away.

Yesterday I got a decent start on "Objects in the Mirror." Today, I think it will begin to look more like the story it is to become.

Also, yesterday the mail brought my contributor's copy of Lynne Jamneck's Dreams from the Witch House (Dark Regions), which includes my previously unprinted SF story, "Our Lady of Arsia Mons." The book is distaff Cthulhu, and other authors include Molly Tanzer, Elizabeth Bear, Joyce Carol Oates, Amanda Downum, Storm Constantine, Sonya Taaffe, Gemma Files, Colleen Douglas, Karen Heuler, and others, with stories illustrated by Daniele Serra.

Ellen Datlow has announced the Table of Contents for two of her forthcoming anthologies, Children of Lovecraft (Dark Horse), which includes my previously unpublished story, "Excerpts for An Eschatology Quadrille", and Nightmares: A New Decade of Modern Horror (Tachyon), which reprints "Interstate Love Song (Murder Ballad No. 8)." The former will be released on November 1, and the latter will be along on September 20 (so these are very early announcements).

We finished the Klimt puzzle yesterday and after dinner discovered five episodes of Naked and Afraid we'd not seen. It's an exciting goddamn life.

  • "...even if we're just dancing in the dark."

    A beautiful, sunny spring day. We made it to 80˚F, when you factor in the heat index. So, during the long silence, there were books. See the photo…

  • In the saddle again? Possibly?

    It's a lot harder than I imagined it would be, getting the LJ working again as a going, day-to-day concern. I almost let it lay fallow too long, I…

  • Start Again

    I did not actually consciously decide to put the journal on hiatus. It just happened. I could not image to continue recording that "Today I did nor…
