NEWSFLASH!

The new cats are doing great. Almost no more sniffles left, and they are absolute sweeties. They are assimilating, and I think it's toughest so far for the "old" cats, not the new bunch. On Sunday they go in for more immunizations.

Huge congratulations to Lisa Silverthorne for yet another sale, this one to STRANGE PLEASURES #5 edited by Paul Barnett. Way to go, Lisa!!! :-) WOOHOOOO!!!

I think I forgot to mention that my story "The Young Woman In A House of Old" is going to be a chapbook, one of the new chapbook series from Prime/Wildside. I am very glad, because that story hadn't had enough exposure at all, and this way it will get a bit more of it.

Here is a tentative cover image (some minor text corrections) for the chapbook (click on it to see larger version):

More news on that one soon....

Meanwhile I leave you with Catherynne M. Valente's "Thirty-Two Statements About Writing" and a strong recommendation to get your copy of Anna Tambour's excellent first novel SPOTTED LILY -- my review of it is here.

NEWSFLASH!

What an insane two weeks. For starters, we adopted three cats from two different shelters last Tuesday the 5th. And the kitties promptly all came down with upper respiratory disease, sneezing and hacking and being unable to eat.

One of them, an orange and white shorthair boy cat Johnny (a one-year-old, according to the shelter), had to be hospitalized for two days. The others, an orange shorthair, naturally tailless, lovable four-and-a-half-year-old lump of a cat we called Murray, is hacking and sneezing now. And the third, a gentle tiny and skinny medium-hair one-year-old tortie we called Shura, is also sick, but not as bad as Johnny had been. Both Shura and Johnny had to be fixed before the shelters released them. Murray apparently was already neutered, so he went home with us on the same day.

The kitties are on the mend, and the good thing is, they all tested negative for Feline Leukemia. :-) The other good thing is, they are perfectly compatible with this household, and have grown used to the house, to the other animals, and to us, incredibly fast.

The garden is flowering like crazy, and I have been planting new veggies and other stuff. Will post some pictures soon.

In the writing news -- I haven't been writing much at all, sort of in a weird state of blah, much of it grieving for Eugene. But I did make my first story sale of the year.

Heard via e-mail from editor Daniel E. Blackston on Thursday (4-7-05) that my sword & sorcery story "Demonkiller," somewhat reminiscent of Tanith Lee's novel KILL THE DEAD, has been accepted for the anthology RAZOR-EDGED ARCANUM from Pitch-Black books, the same good folks who published LORDS OF SWORDS, and is forthcoming in the spring of 2006.

I would like to bring your attention to a great new blog and website by Michael Spence, and in particular his entries On meaning and Boy, kid, are you naïve …. I point this out not just because Michael has said some gracious words about me and my work (which is certainly very agreeable, to use a Jane Austen term), but because I really like the way he thinks and his philosophy. And this is coming from me, someone who is not of any one specific organized religion or belief system. :-) Take a look at what Michael has to say.

Finally, a huge congratulations going out to Paul Melko who has made a novella sale to Asimov's! Wow! :-)
