We made it to 94˚F today, which doesn't sound so hot, until you factor in the 102˚F heat index.

Today, I worked on the "Stratigraphic Background" section of the glyptosaur paper. There will be more of that tomorrow.

In the time since I finished The Tindalos Asset back in April, I've written four short stories and two novellas:

1. "The Last Thing You Should Do"
2. "The Tameness of Wolves"

4. "Requiem"
5. "Untitled 44"
6. "The Surgeon's Photograph (Murder Ballad No. 11)"

Not enough sleep last night. Five hours, at best. Oh, and I started Barry Gifford's Perdita Durango today. And I talked with my lit agent and with Jerad at Centipede Press. Yes, there are still plans for a limited of The Red Tree. Eventually.
