Its that time of year again. If you would like a card, fill out the Google Form (this may keep me more organized than just having folks leave comments! Whoohoo!). As always, everyone is welcome.

jpsorrow and I spent the afternoon at a con yesterday (one of my first outings in awhile, and apart from a quick headache intervention I managed quite well :D ). Books were sold and signed, and jpsorrow had some fantastic swag for Zombies Need Brains (small press he launched last year, their anthology 'Clockwork Universe' will be available soon, I am hitting the formatting end of things for him shortly) available as well. It was a good day.

It should be noted that jpsorrow and I should not be allowed at professional functions without our respective handlers (also, it would have been excellent to have muffins_of_god and pbray there).

The Marshmallow God
recently, I mentioned a glorious Hawkeye/Clint Barton addiction. I also promised pictures from World Fantasy Brighton. These things have much in common.

I was lured overseas by suricattus, who is an experienced traveler and April-wrangler and was a beautiful balance to my anxiety around all places and things I do not know. Foreign country? Ranks real damn high on causing anxiety in the realm of things and places I do not know. But, we made plans to stay a week in Brighton, coming in early for the con to enjoy a couple days of London, involving a signing for suricattus at Forbidden Planet. Where I found Tiny Barton.

I am rather infamous for bringing a mascot to the conference. All previous years it has been one of T's Monster Bags, which have taken bites of authors. But this year Barton applied superior infiltration skills and won pride of place.

Ridiculous pictures behind the cutCollapse )

...it occurs to me that if I were independently wealthy I really would just want to edit and publish anthologies all the time. It is like Christmas, getting story submissions in my inbox. It is like magic, fitting the book together and making it work.

Anthologies are like a disease, ladies and gents. And once you are infected there is no cure.

I say, rather often in here, that it is the little things in life. And dammit, guys, you provide.

I was unable to do cards this year. For a variety of reasons. And yet, when I went to check the mail yesterday, there were cards. From some of my beloved LJ friends. You guys. Seriously. There were wibbles. Maybe some weeping (that CowCat just could not understand. Paxil withdrawal, my friends, is a baffling and fascinating mindspace. The cats do not approve). The more wibbles.

I love you guys. All of you. I have been so fucking absent the past year. And I hated it. And then there were cards. Thank you.

This is why I don't get the things done that I plan to every day. This cat. And that face she makes. Hard to move and disturb her once she has settled onto my lap. and she is always in my lap.

I thought I should let you all know that I am a wee bit addicted to Hawkeye. Have been for ages. The current comic run by Fraction/Aja really seals the deal. It is a beautiful addiction. artaddict shares this addiction. And she sent me a beautiful, beautiful thing.

The packing list itself...I mean...Look at it.

How would an immortal deal with the End Times? The world will inevitably come stumbling into apocalypse, and They will be there to witness it. We want to explore how myths, how fae creatures of all cultures, beings generally seen as eternal (or at least very long-lived) would cope with the end of the world around them. Be it through nuclear incident, religious fervor or rampaging zombies, we are going to discover just What Follows…

I have another group of fantastic authors, some new, some from the last project, all gathered lovingly to work with muffins_of_god and myself. Support the arts for the holidays and help us make this book happen! If nothing else, please do share this link around! I would really appreciate it.
