Sunny this morning, and it's warmer. Currently, it's already 57˚F, with no windchill. Our high is supposed to be 73˚F, a genuine spring temperature. Maybe things will begin to green this week.
Kathryn and I will be laving for Birmingham on either the 17th or 18th. We have a lot to get done between now and then. I need to try and get Sirenia Digest #135 done. We have to have the car looked at, and Hubero has another vet visit, and there's about a hundred other things. By automobile, the trip is a little more than 1,100 miles each way (~1,800 km) and we'll be doing it over two days. I am relieved that so few days remain between us and the trip.
Yesterday, I wrote the introduction for the forthcoming Gauntlet Press edition of Clive Barker's Everville. The introduction mostly concerns the first time I met Clive, in New Orleans, at the 20th annual World Fantasy Convention in October 1994. I was only thirty years old, and while a few of my short stories had sold, none had yet appeared in print. I was writing Silk. It was my first convention, and I bought Everville at Garden City Book Shop and Clive signed it. I was smitten.
Today, I need to write fiction. Today's photo is by Spooky, the big tree outside the pantry window, view to the northwest.
