WHEN GIANTS PASS

Just found out that both Frank Kelly Freas and Will Eisner have died in the past week.

Both men have been artistic heroes of mine over the years, and my world is a little sadder for their leaving it. At least I was lucky enough to meet Freas a couple of years ago, get an autograph, and let him know how much of an influence his work has been on my imagination.

Damn it, all my heroes are dying.

THERE’S CRAP ALL OVER THE FLOOR, WE HAD PIZZA FOR DINNER, AND THE CHARMED MARATHON IS ON THE TELLY

The kids are home 🙂 Bring on 3 weeks of seriously fun stuff.

PETER IS FINISHED

551 words just finished, after a very long and hectic day. The Terrible and Awful Tragedy of Growing Up Like Peter is finished, at a somewhat brief 1337 words, which I expect to get even shorter during the editing process. But it’s nice and nasty, and doesn’t outstay its welcome, so I’m quite pleased to get the first story of the year done so early.

Words For The Day: 551
Words on Nouvelle Hollande: nil
Year Total: 5224

ENVELOPED

2 stories sent out in the last 2 days: Father Muerte & The Flesh to Aurealis, and my ‘too odd for Weird Tales’ story to Asimov’s. Fingers crossed.
