And Don's a good cop. He figures things out quite usefully.

Other writing-related work: pondering piles of research books I want to order.
I should probably not buy these today.
What I should probably do is buy them when I sell the Promethean Age books, so I can have them for the revisions. That would be the grownup thing to do. Instead of ordering them, and then laying them out on the floor to roll around on.
Although, you know, there's a real unholy joy in the idea of ordering two books on the Gnostic gospels, one book on the evolution of the Bible, and three books on Christopher Marlowe at the same time.
You know, some of these would have been very useful to have when I was writing The Stratford Man. As if I didn't do enough reading for that damned thing already.
