Happy birthday also to the wonderful agentxpndble, a super lady and the mistress of two great websites:

May you have a fantastic day and year to come, my friend!

Thanks to valancourtbooks, I've made a new discovery: The Willows. It's an atmospheric horror and dark fantasy magazine with an emphasis on the traditional weird tale, in the classic style of Blackwood, Dunsany, Hodgson, Machen, Lovecraft, etc. To quote from the official site, "We love work set in Victorian times, in the European countryside, in a twisted fairyland, in the underbelly of an enchanted city, or in the ruins of an undiscovered civilization. If your favorite authors are those who initiated and maintained this unique movement, The Willows is the place to read tales you will enjoy."

"The disposition of noble dogs is to be gentle with people they know and the opposite with those they don't know. How, then, can the dog be anything other than a lover of learning since it defines what's its own and what's alien?" - Plato

Thank you, sweetie... For everything. I opened (my latest batch) of pressies this morning and LOL! Now you see just how awesomely stubborn I can be! I *said* I wouldn't buy them myself, didn't I? :))) Thank you SO MUCH - You have allowed be to stick to the moral high ground and yet STILL OWN THEM OMGSQUEE! I do love you so, darling. :::HUGS:::

I wish to *HECK* that there was some way of sharing that card with everyone... OMGSQUEE - That *rocks*!

And then there's all the other stuff (I'm over half done on the book, BTW) - You are far too generous. Really.

*cackles* My pleasure! :) I'm thrilled you like the card, too. It simply had to be yours.

I hope you had a most fabulous day, my friend. You deserve it! *HUGS*
