I have a new story up at Tor.com, Uncle Flower's Homecoming Waltz. Go for the prose, stay for the pretty picture! Seriously, I love the illustration they gave me. It is awesome. It is simultaneously well-executed and--get this--directly relevant to the story. I have been sitting on this lovely illustration all month and hugging it gently to myself, because it popped up in my Google Alert at the beginning of the month.
Yet to come today: reporting in on the Official Rest Period and books read therein. (Short version: vertigo sucks and books do not.)
Also it is my grandfather's birthday. I miss him so much. I'm glad to have good things happening on his birthday.
