updates aplenty

I'm back! Thanks to all of you who wished me well on my trip.
A few quick notes for now:

* First, per J.K. Rowling's website, happy birthday today to Arthur Weasley. I like to show love for one of my favorite Harry Potter characters.

* In less fictional news, happy belated birthday to mayree, who had a birthday while I was gone. I hope it was fabulous!

Other News
* Neil Gaiman's website and Valancourt Books' website have been redesigned. Both are worth a careful look.

* The annual Locus Poll is now open. You do not need to subscribe to Locus to participate.

* I'm happy to see how well Apex Science Fiction and Horror Digest is doing after its very first year. It made a strong showing in the recent Preditors and Editors Poll, and it's getting excellent attention from Locus. The staff has landed interviews with some of my favorite authors, as well; for example, M.M. Buckner and Mary Doria Russell have been interviewed, Issue #5 will include an interview with Neil Gaiman, and Issue #6 will include an interview with Kage Baker. Issue #4, with my article "The New Shoggoth Chic: Why H.P. Lovecraft Now?," is still on sale.

Now back to catching up with, well, everything...

"Animals are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time."

Whee! You're home! Now you can get down to *important* work, like BV-smut. ;-) (Just kidding...) Glad you're back, glad you had a good time, hope you feel better. :::hugs:::

Oh my gosh, how can I get anything important done when you post with an icon like that?!? Now I just want to sit and stare...

A BV-heavy letter's headed your way. I only made it to the plane before I had to comment some more. LOL!

*hugs* back atcha. Thanks for the good wishes - I'm feeling much better!

So Arthur and I are both Aquarians? How old is he? We're probably the same age! Thanks for the b-day wish!

Yes indeed! Two excellent people with birthdays a day apart. You can't beat that! ;) I think the jury's still out on how old he is, though some people who've sketched out the timeline suggest he could've been born as early as the 1940s.

Hope you're having a great post-birthday time! :)
