Happy birthday to dannyboy8406, jasonbsizemore, and _snitchbitch, and happy early birthday to killerweasel, dracschick, and wellinghall. May all of you have a wonderful day and a fantastic year to come!


*FYI, Libribvox.org has added some new, unabridged readings of works for free download that may be of interest to readers of genre fiction:
* Celtic Fairy Tales by Joseph Jacobs
* This Crowded Earth by Robert Bloch
* The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas
* The Metal Monster by A. Merritt
* The Short Science Fiction Collection, Volume 12 by various authors


*And, because they are fantastic, here are Kurt Vonnegut motivational posters.


"The afternoon is bright,
with spring in the air,
a mild March afternoon,
with the breath of April stirring,
I am alone in the quiet patio
looking for some old untried illusion -
some shadow on the whiteness of the wall
some memory asleep
on the stone rim of the fountain,
perhaps in the air
the light swish of some trailing gown."
- Antonio Machado, 1875-1939
Selected Poems, # 3, Translated by Alan S. Trueblood
