Blech! Very sick here. So many are! The ick is making the rounds. 'Tis the season, I suppose. My husband is two weeks into it and he still has little voice and lots of coughing. I'm just in week one, full of antibiotics. Joy! /Whinging

I hope all of you are well, my friends!

Here are several cool Calls for Papers for anyone so inclined:
* "Special Edition of Fantastika Journal" (incorporates the genres of fantasy, science fiction, and horror, but can also include alternative histories, steampunk, young adult fiction, or any other imaginative space)
* "Representing Rural Women"
* "Stranger Things: Eighties Nostalgia, Cynicism and Innocence"
* "Science Fiction Beyond the Western Canon"

Most of all, I just want to share the news about an amazing and inspiring project created by StarShipSofa's Districts of Wonders network, one I'm deeply honored to be a part of: Everyone: Worlds Without Walls, a speculative fiction anthology of new and diverse voices from around the globe. I invite you to check it out!

have had this junque-ola for a month now. Much much better but still with the cough!

You take good care....three hobbits, a dragon, a load of chicken soup and lots of water.

(oh, you could drop the three hobbits and a dragon, if you like)

Yuck! I hope the cough is better, too!

And thanks for the most excellent advice. :D

.....still with the damned cough, but now i'm wondering if i'm coughing from habit not necessity.....

HA!

And how are you? Done with the sick, I hope! (If not, add the dragon in....the idea being that, if you can assimilate a Smaug, you can beat anything. Twice)

btw, I'm such a ditz that I didn't see the Kick Starter first time out. I see you've met your goal and that a Delany is in the future. Go, you! (posted the k.s. on my fb page)

Ack! I hope the coughing's a thing of the past now!

I like the "if you can assimilate a Smaug" logic! ;) My voice is still only at about 75%, but otherwise I'm much better. Thanks!!!

And THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for sharing the news about the Kickstarter! *massive hugs* We got Delany! Woohoo! I'm grateful for your help.

Keep feeling better!

glad to hear you are much better...for myself, cough is there, but just a little shadow, not a great nasty spectre......

So glad you got Delany! *hugs you back**

The weather has been spreading plagues all sorts of around.

I like the idea of reading voices from around the globe. I will have to look into it.

It's been so nasty! We just went from mid-seventies to mid-twenties here. Crazy!

Thank you so much.
