I heard the rust in your head

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

This is just a brief note to say I’m sorry for the silence: still unpacking. But my plane for the World Fantasy Convention leaves at it’s-really-still-yesterday tomorrow (or actually, the plane isn’t all that bad, but I’m an hour further from the airport than I used to be–oops!) and once I am in San Diego, [...]
