… though not in the same story. Today is Darwin Day, and in celebration Tangled Bank Press has released the print edition of The Tangled Bank, edited by Chris Lynch, featuring a veritable cornucopia of thought-provoking stories about Darwin and evolution, my “Entropy of Species,” plus great stories by Chris Green, Carlos Hernandez, and many others.
Also a belated note that the latest issue of Shimmer is now out, including my story, “Crepuscular,” a story of French-speaking snowmen, fireflies, and hair-dryers – and also my ode to my favorite children’s book of all time, The Little Prince (thanks, Mom, for reading it to us again and again and AGAIN!). For the second time I get to share the table of contents with Peter M Ball, who makes me feel like a bro and a fanboy at the same time, and who amazes all of us by writing a teenage werewolf romance that’s actually awesome.
And, yes, I feel the need to add perfunctorily, I continue to be absent from the blogosphere. The pesky day-job still keeps requiring me to travel a bit, which is not conducive to regular blogging. The good news is that when I’m not travelling for work I’ve been working on the novel, which is now, oh, 60% done. I have only one goal for 2011: FINISH THE NOVEL.
