Home and House [Dec. 11th, 2014|12:54 pm]

I am home from Montreal and digging out from under the mountain of things that will pile up when you take a vacation. It was lovely, it was grand, and now it is lovely and grand to be home. And oh, so much stuff. So much stuff. Presents to wrap, more presents to buy and wrap. Stories to revise, more stories to write. The laundry is starting to feel a bit under control, although I know that this is an illusion, as the laundry hamper is almost full again. There are several things that want cooking, and more that want backing, and…well, most of you know what day it is, Saturday.


While I’m doing all this stuff, the magic of publishing brings you things I worked on much earlier. I have a new story up on BCS today, A House of Gold and Steel. Go, read, enjoy.

Thank you! It's the same universe as "The Six Skills of Madame Lumiere," but nothing textual indicates that.

Oh! Yes, now that you mention it, I see the resemblance. But this one felt...well, if I knew somebody (besides us) who wanted more stories like Westmark, this is what I would give them.

Everybody wants more stories like Westmark!

Also everybody generalizes from one Steve Brust. At least, Steve does.

(We heard Steve say, "Everybody generalizes from one example. At least, I do," once, and we've always quoted it that way since.)

Ha! Teckla as "Vlad Goes To Westmark." (No, not really.)
