(*as have many people over time)
Things that have happened since my last blog...
Griped and griped some more about my tooth, which developed an interestingly painful, dry socket. Things learned - I'm a dreadful patient or rather an impatient patient - although having toothache doesn't make you a patient at all; that although you may not be able to eat toast (the horror) because it might get stuck in the gaping hole in your mouth, that you can, however, eat chocolate because it melts and can't get stuck (my prescription). I have a hit list containing the names of all the people who said having a tooth removed was easy. They are aware of the list.
There have been a few more reviews of Nowhere Hall that I should have linked to over the past few weeks but constantly linking to reviews does not make for good blog content. Though possibly neither does griping about teeth. The lastest are from Nickolas Cook at The Black Glove, Gef Fox at Skull Salad Reviews, Strange Aeons Magazine (which includes the words 'fucking Jedi'), Jason Baki at Floor to Ceiling Books and Anton Cancre at Horror News Net. If you are of a mind to read them, the reviews are all linked to from the Nowhere Hall page. Simon Marshall Jones has done (and continues to do) an awesome job of getting all the chapbooks he's published before reviewers.
There's also a review in (the first) for Theatre, which I'll link to when I get around to creating a page for the wee thing.
The garden took its revenge on my fence after it staked it x amount of years ago and aided by the wind managed to uproot the thing. I now have half a fence. That's different. And a hungry Alsation lives next door. Gulp! I should stop calling the dog 'dude' and telling it 'you're going to get a sore throat with all that barking'. I suspect I look like a very happy meal (especially now I've stopped griping).
And as a final note, my internet connection at work (or rather work's internet connection) now thinks it's French.
