I love the way Mr. Simmons plays with the standard action scenes...solid action at its best... something different...whimsical, fast-paced story...a recommended pick...a plot out of the ordinary...event-packed romp through a vivid world...Disturbingly plausible, richly post-apocalyptic, and seductively edgy...

(Man, aren't you people tired of the most relaxed Relaxicon in Fannish History?)

An Apology (of sorts) to Friends & Readers

For several years, now, we have found ourselves suddenly and almost simultaneously the primary caretakers for two different generations of adult family members.  This has involved large commitments of time and resources in both predictable and unpredictable ways.  Writing, keeping in touch, having a social life (and maintaining this website) took a backseat along with a number of other activities.  If you found yourself feeling "abandoned" I apologize.  Part of the burden that fell to us was maintaining the privacy of another and explanations have been...well...difficult.  It's better, now.  Or, for now, anyways. While the old saying, "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans," still holds true, a degree of normalcy seems to be making a return.  With it, I hope, renewed communications and productivity.  Thanks for your patience and understanding... 

P.S. Facebook or finishing Something Wiccan This Way Comes?  Decisions...decisions...
