I can see this is going to be a short entry. There's only so much to say about a day spent sitting at this desk, at this keyboard, writing.

I will toss in a reminder about Subterranean Press now taking pre-orders for the 3rd edition of Tales of Pain and Wonder. Comes with a chapbook, Tails of Tales of Pain and Wonder, which will include, among other things, the original short text of "Salammbö Redux" (a.k.a., "Little Conversations"), along with "Angels You Can See Through" (excised from the third edition), "A Study for 'Estate'" (not reprinted since 2000), and other stuff.
A couple of weeks back, some of us in the Dune: Apocalypse sim, posed for a photographer from Wagner James Au's New World Notes blog, and the published article includes a couple of good photos of my Fremen character Shahrazad al-Anwar. You may read the article here. I am slightly annoyed that the character is called Nareth Nishi, when, in fact, Nareth E. Nishi has never set foot on Arrakis. For that matter, "Jimmy Branagh" is actually Jayat ibn-Baz, but I suppose the reporter was looking at our account names, not the names on our DCS readouts. At any rate, a couple of you have asked for Dune photos, so here you go.
