Detox, Day 3. I awoke to unexpected, which is likely the best sort of sun. Currently, it's 67˚F in Providence.

Yesterday, I did 1,269 words, adding T ("is for Tattoo"), U ("is for Unravel"), V ("is for Vulva"), and W ("is for Wolpertinger"). Today, I'll finish The Chartreuse Alphabet, and Part 2 will appear in Sirenia Digest #129.

After making the trip to Amherst and visiting the successor to the Pratt Museum, "From Cabinet 34, Drawer 6" has been on my mind. So, I thought I'd share John Kenn Mortensen's illustration for the story, from Houses Under the Sea: Mythos Tales:

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions.

Actually, it's the creature from Creature from the Black Lagoon.

I've been admiring your writing....
for years now. Can't remember what I read first, it may have been Threshold. Of your novels, The Red Tree is my favorite. And since I like your short stories best, I've gotten my cold little hands (I smoke. I go to yoga once a week, but that's about it for physical exercise/exorcise. I forget to eat actual food. I drink coffee like it's water) upon copies of Tales of Pain and Wonder and an advance proof of To Charles Fort, with Love. I don't know how to italicize those titles, and don't care to learn ATM, apologies.

Point being. A) I love love love your writing, you're incredibly talented, pls keep on keeping on. B) I never bothered to find your blog until today. Therefore, C) I now know you're trying to quit drinking.

So am I. Detox wasn't a bitch, but figuring out how to live my life w/o booze for motivation, is. A bitch. So I wanted to write and let you know that someone gives a damn about whether or not you're healthy. I appreciate hearing that, when I hear it. Even from total strangers.

That's all. Take good care of yourself, if possible.
