lion in winter dead

(no subject)

The word on the interwebs is that Charles L. Grant, multiply-pseudonymed and prolific author of note, has passed away after a long illness.

While I did not know Charles, I do know his wife a little, and he was a friend to many friends of mine. Sir, farewell.

Yes, more music

Chris Smither was on NPR this morning, pimping his new ride album. And some wonderful person sent me a copy of his new CD, Leave the Light On, in the mail today. Which is a pretty good trick, because it doesn't exist officially until next week.

A bunch of us were going to head up to his concert at the Iron Horse next Saturday, but it appears that the show's been moved to Friday night and the bigger (and pricier) auditorium venue, so I'm not sure it's going to happen now. Alas!

But you can listen to three of his songs at the NPR link, and more of them in the "music" section of his web page. He does a kicking "Duncan & Brady," I have to say.
