They tell me that it’s National Pi Day. Happy 3.14159265… to everyone who celebrates!
I’ve been away for a bit, working on a novel, brawling on the internet — you know the drill. I’m happy to report that we’re on the George home stretch. I make it four more scenes and an epilog to be written, and all on-track for a hand-in by the end of the month. So, that.
While I’ve been goofing off, Steve has been hard at work scanning, correcting and uploading bits of a novel about Miri Robertson and her adventures on Klamath. The novel was never finished, and exists in various bits and starts. The first bit — about 2400 words — and Steve’s introduction to the project and the times during which it was written, are over on Splinter Universe. It’s our intention to update every Monday, until the y’all get bored, or the splinters run out.
While you’re over on Splinter Universe, check out Bud Sparhawk’s guest story, “Somewhere, A Sea“. We’ll be hosting guest stories from time to time, to introduce you to writers you may not have encountered elsewhere.

“I’ll sleep better, for your prayers,” she said, which had the sound of set-piece, and then, before he could divine her intent, she leaned close and kissed his cheek.
