I have been waiting for ages hoping someone would actually dive into King Squid, in terms of a longer review. This is my favorite piece in the appendix of City of Saints, and I still remember with a great deal of satisfaction the anger and irritation with which editors in the field returned it to me when I submited it to them. (In some cases, because I was feeling perverse, I followed it up with the encrypted version of the numbers story from City of Saints. Most times I received no response to this submissions.)
In other news, starting tomorrow a lovely bunch of guest bloggers will be posting here. I’ll let them introduce themselves. And thanks to Rachel Swirsky for the great Launch Pad blogging. I may pop up from time to time, but until August 15th I’ll largely be silent myself. I’m teaching at Shared Worlds this week and then meeting up with Ann for a Comic Con panel, after which we teach the last two weeks of Clarion.
Have fun. Be happy. Don’t worry so much.
