In today's mail, among other things, my contributor's copies of Fantastic Companions, ed. Julie Czerneda, with stories from me, specficrider and many other fine authors.

Also received a credit card solicitation from a Major Consumer Bank addressed to the Child. The Child, being seven years of age, occupation: little girl, with no income, seems an odd candidate for embarking on the lifetime journey of the miracle that is credit.

And it's about 55 degrees and cloudy out there. I actually got chilled walking to the post office. This late in May. Wow.

Back to work, everyone.

Another day in the trenches. Saw my first proposed Interaction programming schedule today. Have in my hot little hands ARCs of TEL : Stories -- I'll have fondle copies with me at BayCon. Got the proof of "Like Cleveland, Without the Sparkle". Had a book signing in Salem to which nobody came. (mme_publisher and I had a good time anyway...I mean, we were in a book store.) Packing for BayCon tonight, though I'm not leaving til Thursday. I am travelling with an absurd amount of paraphernalia.

That is all. You may shop as usual. No need to return to your homes.
