ghost bloggers in the sky

I was going to apologize for the light posting this weekend, but judging from my traffic and the rate that other blogs have been updated, it's like a ghost town around here anyhow. I think I can hear the wind blowing through all the empty templates and there's tumbleweed bouncing around my blogroll.

I've been hanging with the kids, enjoying the sun (but not the heat), reading Director's Cut (as well as A Wrinkle in Time and The Language Police) and I've been up late transferring some of my old pen-and-paper writing onto the computer so I can enter the fiction part of this contest (annoying Flash content warning). I'm thinking of putting a few of my short stories over at Retrovertigo and using you guys as a sounding board. Perhaps I'll post three stories and ask you to vote on which one I should enter.

No, I cannot make decisions on my own, thank you.

Normal blogging resumes at nightfall. After we chase a few lightning bugs.


I love, love, LOVE "A Wrinkle in Time". What a fantastic book. There is a fourth book, now, you know? It's about Sandy and Dennys, the twins. I have not had a chance to read it yet.


The fireflies seem to be unusually numerous in my neck of the woods this year. Possibly another consequence of global warming, but at least it's a much more pleasant one than the biblical-style pestilence of grasshoppers that has become an annual occurrence.

Can't d/load the Flash vodeo of "Know Your Enemy"
Any help appreciated.

Based on my experience, online activity always goes down during the summer.

You just brought back a memory. I read, A Wrinkle In Time when I was about 15. Man I loved that book.

Gonna have to go read it again.

A Wrinkle in Time -- one of the main reasons I started obsessing on the concept of 'wormholes' (of course, Deep Space Nine and Stephen Hawking compounded the problem years later, but...) -- great book...

I loved 'A Wrinkle In Time'. Of course I'm a huge sci-fi fan, and mystery, and spies, and history and non-fiction. Basically anything except romance. But sci-fi and fantasy have been my favorites since I was about 10 and read 'The Hobbit'. I've been warped ever since...
