"I'll fight to the last breath, if they dare touch a hair on your head."

This day has, sadly, sort of slipped away from me, and yesterday is a blur of work. Bright and sunny here in Providence, not quite as cold, still lots of snow.

There was an invitation yesterday, to have a story from A is for Alien adapted for a podcast, and I'll be looking into that. And there were a couple of inquiries about reprints. And..well...just a lot of work. When it was over, I decided, deadlines or no, I have to have some time. So, I'm taking one week, beginning today. Next Thursday, I'll go back to writing, which should still give me plenty of times to meet my deadlines.

Last night, we finished reading John Ajvide Lindqvist's Let the Right One In (2004; originally Låt den rätte komma in). I'm not going to attempt a full-fledged review, because I'm not very good at that sort of thing. I will put a few of my thoughts behind a cut though, spoilers and all that:

See? I suck at book reviews.

Okay. I'm going to put the platypus and the dodo in a desk drawer for the next week....
