Very odd. For the end of the year.
Yes, this is very late. Mostly because we were picking son up from airport, and apparently today is the most popular day of the year to pick someone up at the airport. It was crawling SLOWLY towards arrivals. Also, son didn’t wear a banana costume (family joke) so it took us a while to figure out where he was standing. And here we thought we’d taught them to always wear banana costumes while traveling. Not only does it make it easier to fine you, no kind of crazy rando is going to mess with a man (or woman, should I be the one traveling) in banana costume.
Anyway, for lack of a banana costume, we did three passes before we found him, at which point we had to take him and lovely fiance to Pete’s Kitchen (what? you know I told you that’s the most likely place to find us on any random day of the week) to celebrate another victory against the demons of the air. (Trips usually start and end with a visit to Pete’s. Yes, that does mean if you want to join us in the morning (usually) when we travel to Liberty con, you should go to Pete’s at unholy hours.)
So, it’s late and we’re now home, and I’m trying to render some covers… which is when it occurred to me I hadn’t posted (better late than never!)
So I thought I’d give you a running update and also remind those who bespoke books by email and said they’d send a check that they can’t actually BUY THEM unless they send the check (and it clears.) Five (I think) of you said check was on the way, but we’ve so far got one, for 2 Dyce books.
It’s not a big deal, but I have the books set aside and other people waiting. And I’d like to get done with this.
Oh, yeah, and also my most recent collection is on sale for 99c till the 31st.
So Little And So Light, containing, I THINK my most libertarian short story EVER.
From a parallel world where we have all the dreams of pulp writers, to a future where bioengineering kindles new hates and new heroes, to a different Tudor England, to the intricacies of time wars, this science fiction collection provides a glimpse of things undreamed… some from which we’ll gladly waken, and some we’d very much like to be true.
