I am a little overwhelmed–I owe stories to editors, several interviews are overdue, am working very hard to secure permissions from publishers/authors for the Year’s Best Weird, Vol. 1; and most important of all, I am writing a pair of tributes to the great Michael Shea. Of course, each of these items is due yesterday. By the grace of the gods and a bottle of whiskey, I shall prevail yet.
Thanks to family, friends, colleagues, and readers (and booze), yesterday I had one of the best birthdays ever. Thanks, everybody (particularly to my wonderful girlfriend Jessica; she keeps me on an even keel).
