It's been a little over a month, but so what?
As seems to have become somewhat of an informal tradition, I've read two new books prior to this news post, too: Children of the Mind and Ender's Shadow. I also managed to find a new quirky web comic, Nearing Zero. The Internet is a deep well of amazing secrets. It's a house with infinite levels of basements. It's a can of fun without end. It's an unsolvable and enticing Megaminx. It's a sea in which you can't get lost. It's anything but a superhighway, although that metaphor has the speed thing going for it.
As for my slow updating, I give no apology! I've spent some time tending Llamaphobia (this is an explanation, not an apology), but in any case my site is here for the long haul. There's no hurry.
