We've got new pots of mums on the front porch, and fall is just around the corner!

If I am a bit quieter than usual over the next couple of weeks, that's because I'm working hard on my biography Tecumseh: A Life, which will be published early next year by Greenwood Press. I will still be around, posting and replying, but if there's lag time in my responses, that's the reason. I will be back sharing my daily "spooky posts" in October.


* I just discovered that my scholarly article "Reimagining Rose: Portrayals of Tolkien's Rosie Cotton in Twenty-First Century Fan Fiction," which was published in the journal Mythlore last year, is now online here.


* I also just realized that I have sent 27 books and received 27 books thus far with Bookins. I highly recommend the site for anyone looking for quality used books, whether or not you have books to trade.


* I'm a bit late posting these links, but just in case anyone missed these crossover goodies, please enjoy:

** Edward Gorey meets Star Trek's "The Trouble with Tribbles"

** H.P. Lovecraft meets Winnie the Pooh


“Oh, bother,” said Pooh, as the unclean emanations of the Old Ones manifested as squamous and rugose tentacles that were of no earthly color.
- "The Dream-Quest of Pooh Corner"

I like the Gorey tribbles! Have you read Cohen & Stewart's "Evolving the Alien", for their take on tribbles? It should be on all ST / SF fans' bookshelves!

I suppose what with plush Cthulhus being on the market this sort of thing was inevitable.

Oh...Oh...I...No words. TO AWESOME FOR WORDS.

Gorey's production of Dracula is on my top-five-things-to-do-with-a-time-machine list.

Your Pooh quote reminded me of the tag I have for my email: ""Oh bother!" said Pooh, as he chambered his last round."

A match made in the unfathomable reaches of merciless space, perhaps? *gibbers madly*
