devils on Mars

These days, I can't keep up with the amazing images flooding in from other worlds. Titan. Enceladus. Saturn. And this new one from Mars, the place I'm most sorry I'll never be able to visit, except via photographs (behind the cut or, if you're not reading this on LJ, click here):

An image like that is almost enough to make up for the wars and waste and hate and stupidity. It's enough to keep me moving.

There's so much work to be done at the moment that I'm not sure where to begin. I have to get back to Daughter of Hounds, to Chapter Eight, but now it seems that may not happen today. I've promised Subterranean Press I'll do the cover for The Merewife chapbook myself, so that's probably what I ought to do today. The editing on "From Cabinet 34, Drawer 6" (Weird Shadows Over Innsmouth) is finished. There's another enormous editing job waiting to be done. There are stories that need to be written. If you stare directly at this stuff too long, you'll go blind, and nothing will get written.

A new round of auctions on eBay. Since the lettered edition of Wrong Things didn't sell (and what the frell's with that, anyway?), Monster Doodle Scuplture #2 is now being offerred with the copy of "The Worm in My Mind's Eye" chapbook that is currently up. And now, if you'll excuse me, I must go slay a few vowels...

Addendum: eBay

So — tah dah! — MDS #2 is spoken for. I'll post photos when it's finished. We'll not be offerring #3 until sometime in September, but note that we currently have copies of Silk for only $10, plus The Five of Cups, PCs of the lettered edition of In the Garden of Poisonous Flowers, the Low Red Moon hardback, and The Dry Salvages. Bid or buy. Just click here. Books will be personalized upon request.

It's been a long day. I think I shall go lose myself in a couple of hours of Final Fantasy X-2.
