they come in the age's most uncertain hour, and sing an American tune.

Well, I haven't accomplished any *work* yet today, but I have been to the gym, bought speakers and a lap desk and more Macouns (mmm, Macouns), set up the speakers, washed dishes, and started dinner. Memo: an apple and two slices of peanut butter toast are not sufficient nutrition on a gym day.

Also, I participated in this conversation.

Did I mention that I love my job?

The Publisher's Weekly review of Carnival is just lovely. It's not up at Amazon yet--I'll link it when it is--and I'm not supposed to reprint it, but--just theoretically--how do you like " the best of speculative fiction" as a pull quote?

In a vain attempt to keep my ego in check, here are some other reviews, some more complimentary than others:

gannet liked Blood & Iron, found bits confusing. That does appear to be the common response.

I'll try to do better next time.

Swarm Of Beasts admired the book, found it confusing, couldn't get passionate about it.

Rocalisa thought it was brilliant!

Eagle's Path can review me any time. Not because they're unstintingly complimentary over there, but because they are thoughtful and contemplative and stuff. They review The Chains that you Refuse.

And via The Whatever, Fellated undead liberal former president terrorist airborne with a dog bomb! 

Also, there's a tropical storm underway in Newfoundland. Were we using this hemisphere for anything?


The tropical storm veered east & we didn't get it, here in Newfoundland.

And when they finally relocate our weather office back to Gander from Halifax, we'll stop getting half-arsed forecasts too. :)
phew. *g*

Your neighbors to the south were worrying about you.
I desperately need a lap desk. What did you settle on?
I just got one from Staples. It's big and has a bean-bag underside.

I have a levenger's bed desk, which is nice, but not so great for the laptop on the sofa.
Two years ago, Tropical Storm Ivan *almost* made it to Iceland. Which is to say, the storm did make it, but by that time, it had gone extratropical and was down to a depression.

The tropical storm report writers were clearly bemused. I got the impression the only reason they declared it extratropical was to make it Not Their Problem anymore. It's hard to call something above 60N "tropical" with a straight face.


Because I am juvenile

The conversation you participated in...priceless! Thanks for the smiles, every time! You do not disappoint. However...I don't know that pudding will ever be the same.

Re: Because I am juvenile

Think of it as haggis?

Re: Because I am juvenile

Of course! Because...mmm, that haggis!
