Happy birthday to thewordoffred today, and happy early birthdays to lovefromgirl and artwhisperer. I hope you have wonderful years to come.

FYI, I have updated my running list of H.P. Lovecraft's works currently available in audio format (both for free download and for purchase).

The Village Voice has a new tribute article on science fiction pioneer Octavia Butler, who died on February 25 at the age of 58. A recent interview with Butler is now available via podcast from Dragon Page.

For other tributes to Butler, see the following:
from the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America
from The Washington Post
from The New York Times
from Tyler Cowen for Slate

I will be in San Francisco for the next three days for a colloquium. I'll be back online on Sunday. See you soon!

"Any Change may bear seeds of benefit.
Seek them out.
Any Chance may bear seeds of harm.
God is infinitely malleable.
God is Change."
-Octavia Butler, Parable of the Sower

Say hi to SF for me... (Miss my cushy dot.com job that flew me back twice a year on business trips.) :-(
