white and empty shelves

This won't be a real post, nothing of substance, just a reasuring note so you'll know that I haven't succumbed entirely to this chaos of cardboard and crumpled newspaper. But I am beyond sore and exhausted. The "good" news is that all the books in the office are now packed. I'd guessed it would take two days; it took four. Now we have to ferry the rest of them to the new place. Then I have to start packing bones and fossils and such. Sometimes, living in a frelling museum is less comforting and more of a pain in the eema. Like now. Anyway, tonight will be the last Kid Night at this address.

An update on The Dry Salvages. Word from subpress this morning is that the book is very nearly completely sold out now. Your best best of getting a copy at this point is to order from Amazon.com (says Bill Schafer). You can do that by following this link. I'm very pleased that this book has done so astoundingly well for subpress. I know it was a risky move on their part, publishing an sf book by Caitlín R. Kiernan, that horror writer...

Thanks for the heads-up! I just ordered a copy through them, so they're still there...

I grabbed one from Amazon yesterday, and I'm thrilled that you've written a science fiction novel. I think it's rather ridiculous that authors get pigeon-holed. Most readers don't stick to one genre. Why should authors limit their imaginations to one genre?

Additionally, if books have to be categorized, I've always preferred the term speculative fiction. Their are just too many brilliant novels that are cross-genre.

It could be worse. It could have been a book about "gay chefs."

Well, only them there vampire writers can really do justice to stories about gay chefs. :D

Oh, Cabana Boy....
This is where you need the crew of muscle-y minions (attractive variety, not orc-ish variety) to do your bidding and whisk all your possessions safely into boxes and then schlep them to your new abode. You get to just sit back and direct.
