Yesterday, I had the doctor, which always devours an entire day, somehow. Afterwards, we grabbed supermarket sushi from Greenwise, though I think it was almost midnight before I actually ate my California rolls. And then, last night, for some damn reason, I slept less than four hours.
So yeah, I will be doing a third Dancy Flammarion novella this year. The first two, you will recall, were "Dreams of a Poor Wayfaring Stranger" and "Requiem," written back in the spring, each about 10k words in length. We're probably heading down to Selma tomorrow to do some research for the new story, which does not yet have a title, but I know it has something to do with a mermaid in the Alabama River. All of this is for a yet unannounced Subterranean Press project, which I have not yet been told I can announce. But Dancy fans should be very pleased. Actually, there are two Dancy-related SubPress projects in the works, so Dancy fans should be very, very pleased.
Oh, and I read "Pickman's Model" yesterday, in observance of Lovecraft's 129th birthday.
AS I SAID YESTERDAY: Also, please have a look at the current eBay auctions. There's a copy of the ARC (advance reading copy) of The Ammonite Violin & Others (2010) that I'll be drawing a couple of ammonites it, so...that's special, right? Plus, here's a link to Spooky's Dreaming Squid Etsy shop, where she's gonna be putting up Halloween goodies of her own design.
