  • Mood:
  • Music:

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.

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