I'm now recovering from a camping trip in zero degrees F weather, an experience which left me feeling amazingly alive—if by alive you mean in the same way those frozen bacteria in Antarctica are technically "alive." And for the rest of world who don't have a clue what zero degrees fahrenheit means, it's -17 celsius.
BTW, am I the only one who thinks the fahrenheit scale is positively steampunkish? Maybe the U.S. is so far behind the times with our temperature measurements that we're now actually ahead. :-)
Anyway, here are two items of note:
- Over on the Amazon blog Omnivoracious, Jeff VanderMeer has some very nice things to say about both my writing and Interzone. Many, many thanks. And Jeff is correct that Interzone is a magazine well worth checking out. If you'd like to order Interzone's special issue on my fiction, click here.
- Shaun Duke has finished the third and final part of his examination of the New Weird and SciFi Strange. Go! Read! Once I finish melting I'll comment on his analysis.
