R.I.P. to Glen GoodKnight (1941-2010), the founder of an organization that's near and dear to me, The Mythopoeic Society. He won't be forgotten. My heart goes out to everyone who has been touched by this loss.
Happy early birthday wishes to actourdreams, coppervale, and st_crispins. May all three of you enjoy many happy returns of the day!
Reminder: If you'd like to receive a holiday card from me this December, please reply here. Thanks!

Librivox has been releasing some terrific new unabridged recordings in some of my favorite genres. In case anyone's interested, here are some of the latest available:
"The wild November come at last
Beneath a veil of rain;
The night winds blows its folds aside,
Her face is full of pain.
The latest of her race, she takes
The Autumn's vacant throne:
She has but one short moon to live,
And she must live alone."
