There's not a lot going on, which is why I haven't updated. Things've been quiet and unremarkable. Work is busy -- we go to press on Friday, early because of the holidays coming up -- and the evenings are busy, too, with various things. I've been plugging away at the Frog novel, writing a few pages here and there. I'm looking forward to the week off at the end of the month, to concentrate on the book. Once the plot starts to really avalanche toward the climax, it'll be nice to spend a lot of time writing it, keeping the momentum going.

Otherwise, let's see... The Science Fiction Poetry Association has an official website of its own now,, put together by the lovely Erin Donahoe. It's still in-progress, but the bare bones are there. Which reminds me that Heather and I should get our Tropism Press website up and running. We need to find cheap hosting, which shouldn't be difficult. We just haven't gotten around to it yet.

If you haven't yet, go read Jenn's new story "The Dream Factory" at Strange Horizons. Good stuff.

Good stuff at Barth Anderson's word blog lately, most recently some thoughts on the new weird/ interstitial/ next wave/ amorphous blobs thing. Which includes, incidentally, some nice words about Flytrap, and some good suggestions for small-press editors with an interest in the borderlands and frontiers.

And, in a similar vein, I've been chiming in on the Night Shade Books discussion boards, mostly in the Interstitial Arts Foundation topic. Lots of interesting conversations going on there.

And, of course, Iím always lurking or posting on the Third Alternative message boards (the link to my topic is on your left).

At its best, the internet isn't a vast time sink for me. Instead, it's a stimulus, an inspiration, or a goad. Though other times, yes, it's just a time sink.

Oh, and I'm with Nick. That's a damn sad episode of Futurama.

I suppose a Rangergirl update is in order. My agent had dinner at World Fantasy with an editor and told him about my book, and now we're giving him an exclusive first look in exchange for a quick response. So, things are in process. Wish me luck.
