Words, words, words.

And here's one of those interviews that I mentioned this morning. One of the better ones, actually. It's mostly related to The Drowning Girl: A Memoir and my writing in general, with lots of blithering about....stuff. And there's also a novel excerpt, all at the marvelous Weird Fiction Review:

Interview: Caitlín R. Kiernan on Weird Fiction

Novel Excerpt: Caitlín R. Kiernan’s The Drowning Girl

With many thanks to Jeff VanderMeer! Oh, and there's Michael Zulli artwork!

I don't know the protocol on these things. Is it appropriate for a Reader to gift you a copy of MS Word (actually, the MS Office Student and Teacher)?

At this point, I would be extraordinarily grateful, and if there's a protocol, it's unknown to me. It only matters that the digest get back on track. It goes without saying that I would be immensely grateful. However, would I be permitted to use the Student/Teacher version, as I am neither. Also, there is presently someone else attempting to get a copy to me. So...stay posted?

Re: Word
Showing my age: it's called "Home and Student" now: "Licensed for home and student use on 1 (one) Mac; not for use in any commercial, non-profit, or revenue generating business activities, or by any government organization." If authors are considered "government organizations" or one of the other things, the regular version of just Word itself is only a few dollars more on Amazon. I will stay posted.

I've read TDG once, but I need to read it again with no distractions. The roomie leaves in a couple weeks, so that will be perfect. I loved it. It's softer, in a worn way rather than in a weak way, than TRT and it's intimate and sad. It's an incredible piece and I can understand why you need a break from such things for a time.
Thank you very much, Aunt Beast.

Great interview, and the opening of TDG has sucked me right in. It'll be next after I finish Liz Hand's and Joe Lansdale's latest books.
