What's the Buzz?

  • Cute Overload Alert: Gwenda has a new pup--ain't he anerable?
  • I just finished reading Out by Natsuo Kirino. Japanese crime noir--excellent, highly recommended. It's her first book to be translated into English, but I hope there are many more to come. I found it a fascinating depiction of a Japan that Westerners rarely see.
  • Primo Action Man gifted Devilman and me with Tiki mugs from Tiki Farm. We shall look so super cool sipping our Sidecars now!
  • Get'em while they are young: Alpha Workshop is a SF & F writing workshop for writers 14-19! If that's you--check them out--great instructors and a good precursor to Clarion! (Link heisted from Madama Kushner!)

My sister just finished FLORA SEGUNDA.

I thought you might be interested to know that it reminded her of "a cross between Dune and Zorro."

I'm not quite sure what that means, but it was said in notes of reverence, so I'm confident it was a compliment.

Two excellent books to be compared to, so yes, indeed, I will take your sister's comment as a compliment! Good taste your sister has...Please thank her for me...
