Over at Neil Gaiman's blog, we find another poor hopeful who has been suckered by PublishAmerica, and is likely crying herself to sleep now that she knows the truth. I do not understand why these guys are allowed to do business. How much flagrant misrepresentation does it take?
Meanwhile, out in Dover, PA a decision on the Kitzmiller vs Dover case (also known as the Dover Panda Trial) is expected tomorrow. Keep your opposable thumbs crossed.
I just finished reading Lud-in-the-Mist by Hope Mirrlees, and it was every bit as wonderful as promised. Recommended.
In other news, I'm back to work on my 2004 NaNovel (yes, the one I swore I'd never bother to finish because it bored me so.) I hope to finish it before the end of the year. I got SWK back in the mail, (sent to McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, which is by far my favorite periodical. I'm aiming a bit high probably. Ah well.)
I'm also working on putting together a panel on e-publishing for that conference that I attend, and so far I've got bites from Zette (I am *so* happy about that! I hope she can come,) and the fine people at EPIC. Wish me luck, I'm absolutely terrified that I'm going to flub this thing.
I hope everyone is plugging away at their own WIPs even during this holiday season. Best wishes to all for Hannukah/Christmas/Kwanzaa/Yule/New Year.
