"there's just no electricity on Dagobah"

A quick "PS" to my last post: The Charlotte Observer ran a short article about me today. It is here.

"Because aside from the occasional X-Wing for you to plug into, there's just no electricity on Dagobah." (on Yoda)

It just tired me out reading the article with all you do!

Congrats on the article, Amy. :) I have to visit your website again and choose something from your listing to add to my TBR pile. Any suggestions? :) Every time I see Ms. Virginia of the Shire, I must smile. She is too cute. hehe

Take care!

You are so kind! Thanks for your encouragement and support, Louise! A number of my articles are online (linked from my website), so you don't have to invest in a book for those. ;) Of my book projects, I am particularly proud of restoring The Magic Ring and The Magic Goblet, both of which are remarkable novels, and of my forthcoming Tecumseh: A Biography, which I hope will be readable and enjoyable for interested non-specialist readers: he was an amazing man who left a powerful legacy that is still relevant today.

*Hugs* and thanks!

I am intrigued by all the books you mention, and thank you very much for reminding me about the articles, too. :) I must check them out! I am sure I have read some in Apex, too, am I right? I have a terrible memory, so you'll have to forgive me there. lol I will definitely invest in a book, too, though. I am too intrigued not to. I think I'll try the "Tecumseh: A Biography" first. When I was in Anthro in college, we read a book on the (pardon me if I spell it incorrect) Kitsukalum native bands who I believe still live near Terrace, BC. I really enjoy native culture and history, so I might depart from the usual fantasy for my first full length Amy Sturgis read, and then I shall save the restored tomes for later. Congrats to you, I think you do some wonderful projects! :)

Take care!

Thank you so much, Louise! :) I really appreciate your encouragement. You're quite right about Apex: I had an article in the Winter 2006 issue ("'Strange and Fearful Imaginations': Rediscovering the Terror of Baron de la Motte Fouqué") and in the Winter 2005 issue ("The New Shoggoth Chic: Why H.P. Lovecraft Now?"). I also have an essay coming out in one of their soon-to-be announced anthologies soon. :)

Your anthropology class sounds like it was wonderful. I wish I'd been sitting in! I somehow missed out on anthropology as an undergrad (???), so I had a lot to make up for in graduate school!

Nice. Now we're both celebrities :)

LOL! ;)

That's a really good article about you.

Thank you for sharing it.

I think I need to go and rest now after reading about everything you do :-)

Aw, thank you so much! I really appreciate it.

And LOL. ;)

Your icon of your sweet girl makes me smile every time I see it!

You are very welcome.

Aww, that's lovely of you to say so. And the same is true of your baby. We saw several when we were watching Crufts the other week.
