Rainy and cloudy and cold in Providence today.
Almost all of yesterday was spent on the interview for WoW.com, which was actually fun, for the most part. I dread the comments it will elicit, though. I can't help but dread that sort of thing, those wild, unfiltered comments. Anyway, I think I'm going to rescind my moratorium on interviews, as I think it's only attracting interviews I want to give. Maybe if I say, sure, I'll give more interviews, I'll give interviews until the proverbial cows come home, people will stop asking for them, and I can get back to the business of just writing. I think I wrote more than two thousand words yesterday, but they don't count, as they were all interview answers. I also went through a mountain of old WoW screencaps for my favorites of my two mains, Shaharrazad and Kalií, which I'm supposed to send back with the interview answers. It's insane how many screencaps I've taken over the last year.
Yesterday, my complimentary copies of Jonathan Strahan's Eclipse Three arrived. The collection looks excellent, and includes a new sf story of mine, "Galápagos." I urge you to pick up a copy. The street date is tomorrow, October 28th. This is one of those anthologies in which I am especially proud to have been included.
We have begun a new round of eBay auctions, still trying to recoup what went out to the IRS a couple of weeks back. We're about halfway to our goal. Please have a look. Thank you.
Last night, Spooky made an excellent apple pie with apples we picked on Sunday.
And, speaking of Sunday, here are photographs of the abandoned house on Old North Road. Spooky has learned that it was built in 1888. I could tell, from the field-stone foundation, that it was very old, but I'd not thought it quite that old. Spooky will be posting more photos of the house, the ones she took in sepia, and I'll link to those tomorrow:
