Jean Gris isn't worried about your guns.

"recognizance" is one of those words that always looks wrong.

And my first copies of Undertow just showed up. They came up with a much better tagline for the final cover.

Man, this is a pretty, pretty book. And only $8.99 Canadian ($6.99 US) .... Go, failing dollar!

Eee. Books. Real books! *Wallows in the new-book smell*

And now, some oatmeal, and then back to the word mines.

in the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need...

We momentarily pause the deathrace to bring you the following announcement:

via muncle:

Time Life has licensed The Man From U.N.C.L.E. from Warner Bros, and will release it in a similar fashion as their fabulous Get Smart set (which just won an award).

The set will include all 4 seasons, 105 episodes, in one big set sold via direct-response (TV ads and online). We've also been told that the show won't go to retail until the fall of 2008, giving Time Life approximately a 1 year exclusive window.

I was in LA last week and I overheard talk that U.N.C.L.E. stars Robert Vaughn (Napoleon Solo) and David McCallum (Illya Kuryakin) are involved in the creation of bonus material, and will tape a joint interview in the next few weeks (we had a previous news story on this). McCallum has also donated his "home movies, shot on the U.N.C.L.E. set, for the DVD set. Original UNCLE directors Richard Donner and Joseph Sargent, as well as writer Dan Hargrove are also rumored to be participating in the DVD bonus materials.

Well. And about time, too.



Hey, does anybody know where I can purchase/obtain an MP3 of this track: "Senor Coconut and His Orchestra - Humo En El Agua (Smoke on The Water")?

I don't want the whole album, and American iTunes only has the English-language version, the bastards. It looks like the UK iTunes has the one I want. But no love for me there....



Girls that glitter defile hope
We think that love is just tightening that sad little rope
And then we open our eyes and we see through the gash of a fluttering eyelash
We see love trying desperately to flee
But you don't ever have to fear
Just break its wings and it will never disappear

Yay!

C'mon, it's a good book. You know you want it. G'wan, make my publisher embarrassed about the size of the print run.


I have this to say about All the Windwracked Stars

The Daring Hexcape Has Happened!

Now, the smut. Er. Oh, look! A bunny!

Seriously, just a transition to write, and part of a scene that's partially written, and then another transition, and we're into, well, the part where stuff really starts to go to hell. Hel. Niflheim.

Whatever.

Oh god. I can see the top from here. If the oxygen dep doesn't get me, I might actually finish this thing....

This one is not picking up speed in the writing, toward the end. It is, in fact, getting harder. Apparently, it saved the Dreaded Middle for late in the book.

Mama.
