What a world! The light in the afternoon is beautiful lately. Late summer light is the finest light.

I still haven't written my vows. I've been thinking about them, but they do not exist in printed form. They will. Tomorrow morning I'm going to make a pot of coffee, pour myself a cup, sit in the sunshine, and compose. (This is because I'm not going to work tomorrow. I'm running errands, picking up my tux, etc. But first, finalizing my vows.) There are some other little things to do, and some organizational things to be organized, but most everything vital has been set in motion. The wedding will happen. It should be good.

My dear old friend D., who is performing the wedding ceremony, got into town yesterday afternoon. He came over last night and we drank wine, and talked. He told us about his recent pilgrimage in Spain, and his studies in traditional Eastern medicine. We told him about our various literary adventures. It was so good to see him. We were roommates for years, and he's saved me from financial and personal ruin a time or two, and I've helped him weather some crises of his own. Even though he lives 3,000 miles away now, we were still instantly comfortable together again; that's what I love about old friends with history. I'm glad I was able to spend some time with him before the madness of the wedding kicks in.

Got some nice news about my first collection, Little Gods -- you may actually be seeing it in stores sometime soon! (Well, early next year.) Prime Books has a deal with a big book distributor now, and they're picking up my collection, so it should eventually make its way into mainstream bookstores (it was previously only available online and in some SF/fantasy specialty shops)! Thanks to my editor Sean Wallace's tireless support. He's good people.

I'm getting a cold. (Actually, I have a cold; what it's getting, is worse.) My throat is very sore today. I'm terrified of losing my voice on my wedding day. What do you do to prevent that from happening, hmmm? I can drink hot water and honey and lemon I reckon...

Off to work now, though I'm more and more distracted every day. I'll try to be somewhat effectual there.
