A most excellent exchange:
not-jesse: Have you seen that movie, Return to Oz?
jesse: Oh, yeah, with Dorothy, Tik-Tok, and the Wheelers?
not-jesse: Er, no—I meant Return to Frank Oz.
The Preditors & Editors Readers’ Poll is over. My thanks to everyone who voted. While I didn’t kick any butt this year (in fact, I got my face rubbed in the armpits of everyone else), there are several familiar faces who did, so trek on over to the Anotherealm site and have have a looksie at some very sexy numbers.
I promised I’d front-page Valenstein again for Valentine’s Day, so here it is. Alas, despite frequent e-mails encouraging the Colossal Theatre gang to get its act back together, we don’t have any plans to do anything new this year. Or next year…or the year after that….
Other than that, there’s really not much else to put in your pipe and smoke. I’m in a sort of “between” mode right now, doing more writing than promoting, so it’s going to seem quiet for a while—but that’s how it usually goes. Rise and fall, ebb and flow, left and right, tic and tac. I have some book news coming soon, but I can’t give out details just yet. Like I said, it’s “between” time right now.
It will pass.
Lastly: Susan Jackson rocks, and she knows it. After going through a list of about a dozen people while doing research for my next book, Susan was the only one who responded. She whole-heartedly deserves a Valentine’s Tux!
