Overcast, 68˚F, humid.

I might have slept three and a half hours.

People keep asking whether or not M is for Mars began life as The Dinosaurs of Mars, back in June 2007. So, since you've asked, the short answer is "yes," though nothing much of what The Dinosaurs of Mars was to have been is to be found in M is for Mars. I made a finished novella from a perpetually unfinished stillbirth, I transmuted one beast into a beast of another sort. We call that alchemy. I spent all day yesterday editing, and I finally reached that point where I was no longer making improvements, where I was merely changing things. All perspective was lost. So, I mailed it away to Centipede Press, and this morning Jerad Walters told me he'll be getting to work on the design/typesetting right away. Mythos Tales has been coming together since 2012, and it should finally be along soon. There was much foot dragging on my part.

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

I have three photos from late yesterday afternoon, just as the sun was setting over western Providence:

View to the east. (5:45 p.m. EST)

View to the west. (5:44 p.m. EST)

And then there was Miss Pumpkin.

What a gorgeous cat! A neighbor's?

I love the photo with the sunset throwing a shadow to the east. Miss Pumpkin is fierce.

Sometimes when I walked my dog, I would pet the neighborhood cats. One group of cats would see my dog, and freeze. Another group would just ignore us, they wouldn't even give us a look. In the petting category, the cats would give my dog a look, then then they would give me the eyeball. You could tell the cat was assessing my dog, and myself. It must be a predatory thing.

Miss Pumpkin is the best thing I've seen all day. Actually brightened my mood. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Love the Abrams-esque lens flare in photo 2. Have a good one.
