“I’m so mad, I’m not going to sing my aria!” [Feb. 17th, 2014|03:59 pm]

(Supernerd points to those who get that joke.)


My story The Suitcase Aria is up at Strange Horizons! Go, read, enjoy! There is also a podcast that I will confess I have not listened to, because I am terrible at listening to podcasts and I have not been well enough to put energy into extra things like, um, listening to podcasts, so please tell me how it is, those of you who are good at podcasts.


The things I find strangest in this story, the dual-purpose canals under the Berlin Opera House, are absolutely true. I made up several other bits, but that was not me, that was history.

I do so love this one. And history is frequently weirder than the stuff authors make up, as we have discussed on previous occasions.

Loved it, and said so (am also Jazzlet). I liked Udo's tone of voice a lot.

I forgot to say I got a little tingle of excitement when I saw your name, before I'd even really processed it. Some subconscious bit of my brain clearly approves of your work.

I really thought that you would be. One of the happy ripple side effects.

Side effect? It was one of our explicit goals! I mean, not specifically "inspire Mris to write an awesome story about theater and canals" but pretty close.

Okay, but the WPA story, when I get that written, really will count as a side effect, 1930s being out of period and all.

It's called "Erosion." Just FYI.

Oh, that's ... 'lovely' is not the right word. I'm not sure what is. I enjoyed it, anyway.
