The Paradise Lost conference is wrapping up this morning. We had a great day yesterday, complete with a Howard Waldrop reading.

Howard Waldrop reading at Paradise Lost 2011 in Austin TX

That was followed by a party last night, and me being up til about midnight.

Nice long walk this morning, featuring roosters, owls, a whole host of morning birds and one very insouciant raccoon. Some more conferencing, then I hit the road for home. Won't be in til about midnight West Coast time, which will be a bit rough on me.

I did manage to get two requested stories written this past week. One more to go, a little bit of WRPA, then I'll be on to Kalimpura revisions. Feeling pretty good about all that.

Be well, write more, have fun today.

Seeing the photo of Howard Waldrop brings back memories!

BTW do you remember a novella he wrote long ago in which Frankenstein's monster reached the north pole, then went down into the earth, eventually reaching Antarctica, in a mashup of Frankenstein, Journey to the center of the earth, and At the mountains of madness? I would love read that again sometime.

I envy you your raccoon. I've never seen one. (Unsurprising, considering that there are none over here, but when I visited a US friend who is visited by them, they hid all week.)
