"And the day is as dark as the night is long."

I spent yesterday reading a novella I've been asked to blurb, asked by an editor, not by the author. At forty-thousand words, it consumed most of the working day. But there was some correspondence attended to, as well.

Today, I begin a science-fiction story I'm calling "Beyond the Laughing Sky," and my thanks to Elizabeth Bear (matociquala) for the boojums.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. My books, signed by me, sold by me, shipped to you from me. Since 1999. I'll personalize anything.

Last night, we saw Shane Carruth's 2013 Upstream Color, which is undeniably beautiful and undeniably smart, but which also, for me, falls terribly flat, somehow.

Night before last, I watched Christopher Nolan's Interstellar (2014) again, maybe the fifth time I've seen it. It's such a brilliant gem. I'm very much looking forward to Nolan's Dunkirk (2017).

Now, it's time to make the doughnuts.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast
