If Amazon can be trusted (I always here these things from them first,) the mass-market paperback of A Companion to Wolves goes on sale July 29th. [Mysterious Galaxy order link] This means, if the pattern holds true, it might be turning up in brick and mortar stores any minute now.
Also, it appears that a MMPB edition of Whiskey & Water is in the works for January. Fantastical!
Me, I spent the morning cleaning my apartment and fussing with the under-desk wiring (which appears, dear me, to still need more duct tape). Also, did laundry in preparation for ReaderCon--where I will be doing a talk, a panel, a kaffeeklatch, and a trio of readings--one all me and two with anthologymates. Also hanging around in the bar, playing Mafia, attending the Kirk Poland, gorging myself on the annual pilgrimage to The Summer Shack, and going climbing.
I even subjected the poor cat to the Robot Monster, and have what passes for a clean floor around here. Somehow, I feel like I should have done more, but this is vacation, right? And there will be climbing tonight.
truepenny and I have been touring the wilds of Connecticut for the past week--we've been to the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe Houses--apparently the Twain House is hurting for money, currently, if you are looking for a tax deduction--and Bushnell Park, for the carousel and stuff. Yesterday we did the Mystic thing, visiting the aquarium and seaport. Whaling ships! Steller sea lions! Clam rolls! Life is good.
If you think I'm studiously ignoring the latest idiocy from the Department of Health and (in)Human(e) Services... I sent a letter this morning. If you wanted to, you could send an email here.
Not that, you know, these guys listen.
In fannish news, the oh-so-awesome Mr. Wil Wheaton, noted writer and blogger, will be appearing on Criminal Minds. woot!
