So, a day of oddities and wonders.
The answer to the Very Simple Question is apparently not at all simple. This is…disappointing. I was hoping to get through the rest of this year (which started, as those playing along at home will recall) with Steve receiving a ICD implant, after a Discovered Check pulmonary situation during his stay in the hospital, last October, for pneumonia (deep breath) Without. Any. More. Drama.(tm).
Wishes, ladies and gentlemen, are apparently still not horses. You heard it here first.
Continuing with the theme, I today received in the mail the copyright certificate for Pilots Choice, which we filed for, it says here, in May 2009. I guess the Library of Congress ran out of stamps. Still, it’s good to see it, and it will be filed with its kinfolk, in due time.
Also! An Alert Reader lets us know that The Crystal Variation by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, published earlier this month by Baen Books, an omnibus edition including three novels: Crystal Soldier, Crystal Dragon, and Balance of Trade — has been listed in Locus Magazine’s Classic Reprints section, here.
So, anyhow, I’m tired now; it’s been a long day, in it’s way.
See y’all tomorrow.
