"Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock." II

Running late, thanks to insomnia and not waking until noon. And I have a phone conference at six (CaST) with folks from Dark Horse.

Yesterday, I didn't work on Red Delicious. Instead, I polished "Forests of the Night,"* took care of an interview for the HWA/Bram Stoker Awards thing that I'll be doing the GoH thing at this summer (I truly have come to hate interviews), and took care of edits on the most recent Alabaster script. But now all that stuff is done and out of my way.

Please recall the Very Special eBay Auction currently in progress: Letter H of the 2006 Alabaster short story collection (Subterranean Press), with a handmade quilt-weight "bunny calico" drawstring book cozy. Thank you.

Tap, Tap, Tap,

* It has been pointed out to me this title was used for a vignette in "Forests of the Night," in Tales from the Woeful Platypus (2007). Plan B....

A Question for Sirenia Digest Subscribers:

Poll #1895972 For Sirenia Digest Subscribers:

Would you like to see Fay Grimmer serialized in Sirenia Digest?


Were I to do this, it would begin with Chapter One in #87, and there would be one chapter a month. But I wanted to see how people feel. I understand that just because I'm not happy with the end result doesn't mean that others wouldn't like to read it. And there will almost certainly never be a hard copy, print version of the novel.
