The family are out of the house right now. I’m playing The Weepies. It’s been a hard couple days, made a lot harder by some things I just need to filter out of my world for a while. I need to make things a bit simpler, rather than more complicated.
In the meantime, I’m going to spend the time before dinner reading Fritz Leiber stories. Charles and I had decided on a core short list for our ‘best of Leiber’ volume, but hadn’t finalised it. Now it’s something left to me, which is incredibly sad. Charles and Fritz were such good friends, and Charles loved his work so much that it seems wrong to make the final decisions without him. Nonetheless, the important thing is to complete the book and make sure it would be one that he’d be proud of.
