Well, today was one of those days. Dogged by a headache and other ailments, I also lacked somewhat in the sleep department, having been kept up half the night by kids. Still, we staggered on, got the kids out, and off to a place called Fun Station. They had a great time, we survived, and I think I read half a page of Charles Stross’s The Jennifer Morgue. Still, got through a couple episodes of Firefly, and will get back to the novel now. Having pretty much agreed with John Clute’s SciFi.com review of Tim Lebbon’s Dusk (I mean to post so much more about this), I think I’m abandoning it. Not its fault, but I’m not grabbed. Maybe later. I’ve also finalised permissions and got contracts out for five of the nine novellas that’ll be in Best Short Novels: 2006. My special thanks to all of the authors involved (you know who you are), and to Pete and Nick (for going beyond the call).
