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of Contents for two of her forthcoming anthologies, Children of Lovecraft (Dark Horse), which includes my previously unpublished story, "Excerpts for An Eschatology Quadrille", and Nightmares: A New Decade of Modern Horror (Tachyon), which reprints "Interstate Love Song (Murder Ballad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.
