Fall Cleaning

It has to be fall clean­ing because it’s Sep­tem­ber, right? I haven’t done spring clean­ing at any time since we’ve lived in this house, hon­est­ly. I haven’t been able to do it. But between a new pain spe­cial­ist who isn’t all the way on the oth­er side of metro Atlanta (who actu­al­ly lis­tens to me […]

September 2010 NaBloPoMo Theme: Art

I received the NaBloPo­Mo newslet­ter today and learned that this mon­th’s theme is Art. On the one hand, I thought, “I have noth­ing to say! I’m not an artist. Blah.” On the oth­er hand, I’m com­ing to real­ize that I must have order in my life or I start dying, bit by bit. “Ene­my of […]

Book Review: The Horns of Elfland edited by Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman

The Horns of Elfland by Ellen Kush­n­er My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars It took a while to track down this vol­ume, as it has long been out of print. The inter­li­brary loan was, once again, my friend.

Book Review: Changes by Jim Butcher

Changes by Jim Butch­er My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I do not give out many 5‑star rat­ings, but for this book I could­n’t do any­thing else. That is despite the fact that Jim Butch­er did some­thing I hon­est­ly did­n’t think he would do to his legions of loy­al read­ers, some­thing that I absolute­ly detest. Something […]

Review: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Amer­i­can Gods by Neil Gaiman My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I’m try­ing to remem­ber whether or not I’ve read any of Gaiman’s oth­er nov­els before, and I’m fair­ly cer­tain that I haven’t. I read Good Omens, but that was co-writ­ten with Ter­ry Pratch­ett, and the col­lab­o­ra­tion was genius. Of course, I know that the entire […]
