and we'll never have that recipe again

Favorite link of the day: warren_ellis cooks!

Organic produce often costs a little more, and looks a little funny. It does, however, taste a lot better, and it is better on your system. Trust a man who is 95% toxins on this. (et fix link)

I can't possibly be the only one who is looking forward to the Cake Channel* version of this. (Episode 43, where Warren chases that Bam! guy around the kitchen screaming, with a peeler, is sure to be an instant classic. Not to mention episode 51, where Warren and Alton roast long pig in a furnace repurposed from a North Korean nuclear device.)

Me, I'm having leftover brown rice, apples, mandarin oranges, and ground pork cooked taco style for dinner tonight, with the last little bit of port salut and a glass of cheap Australian Shiraz.

Today was a day of various good news. ARCs of Seven for a Secret showed, and I have two to give away. They'll go to the first two people who provide me with proof of purchase (or pre-order) of a copy of All the Windwracked Stars. Well, that went fast!

Speaking of All the Windwracked Stars, casacorona tells me that the first copies have arrived in-house at Tor, and should be on their way very soon to me... and to a bookstore near you. So woot.

Also, my author copy of the Metatropolis audiobook arrived today. It looks awfully pretty in person, too.

And not only did I hear from my French translator for Carnival this week, which is a nice assurance that that is going forward, but arcaedia tells me that the Japanese publisher for the Jenny books sent money. And she tells me that she's forwarded Bone & Jewel Creatures to MonkeyBrain books, as previously arranged, and we're probably looking at a 2010 publication date for that.

And I wrote 1030 words on "The Tricks of London," and mean to get a few more tonight before I call it quits. Productivity rocks.

All in all, a pretty damned good day.

*Cake Channel, Hitler Channel, Dinosaur & Explosion Channel, Murder Channel, Dead Puppy Channel. Surely your cable provider offers these, as well?
