"I walk with others in me, yearning to get out."

The weather is grinding me down. Day after day after day now of rain and overcast skies, highs in the fifties Fahrenheit, sixty if we're lucky. Outside it's green, but I cannot summon the energy to step out into the dank and wet and chill. And this is May? I haven't been outside since Monday, but tonight is Kindernacht, and I'll go out with Spooky to get pizza at Fellini's and movies at Atomic Video.

Where did my LJ readers go? Not you few who are still here, but all the many who used to comment. Did they truly take part in some bizarre exodus to FB and Twitter? I'd like to think better of them than that.

TOMORROW is Free Comic Book Day, and a new Dancy story, "Shelter," will be included in the Dark Horse offerings (divided over two books). Do not miss it!

Yesterday, I wrote 1,362 words on "Hauptplatte/Gegenplatte" for Sirenia Digest #75. New subscribers always welcome!

Yesterday, I was also sent inked pages for Alabaster: Wolves #3, pages 14-18, and they're looking fantastic. By the way, this issue is largely comprised of a graphic-novel retelling of the short-story "Alabaster." The issue will be available June 13th (and #2 will be on shelves and in pull bags May 9th!). By the way, here's Greg Ruth's beautiful cover for #3:

Did I mention my insidious new addiction to Pinterest? Thought so. New source of time displacement. Six boards thus far.

If you're in the Providence area, I urge you to come (in the foul fucking weather) to see Brown Bird at the Met Cafe on Sunday night. They won't be playing Rhode Island again until the sold-out Newport Folk Festival this summer.

If you have not already done so, please preorder a copy of Confessions of a Five-Chambered Heart! The trade is a mere $40, and you get twenty-five stories for that $40. Twenty-five, kittens. And help insure that Subterranean Press will continue to publish my collections.

One last thing. All those people getting bent out of shape about the new Kickstarter project by Amanda Palmer need to shut the fuck up and get a clue. You think it's cheap to do the sort of shit she's trying to do here? You think you're so goddamn privileged art ought to come to you free on a silver platter? You think she's gonna turn a huge profit on this endeavor? You think we who struggle to make a living on our art are sell-outs? Then you're a moron.

Weary of the Morons,
Aunt Beast
