A few things:
- Blackwood made the Locus recommended reading list in the first novels category. Sharing company with the other people on the list (including one Mr. Rowe in novelettes!) is an honor indeed. Completely thrilled.
- I'm over at The Mortal Instruments Examiner today talking about why I love these books so, my essay in Shadowhunters and Downworlders, and other things. Check it out.
- A couple of lovely posts about Blackwood that made my respective days: from the wonderful Mette Ivie Harrison and Kate Ormand.
We are all getting lots of work done, talking about books and publishing and silly things (my favorite). I am revising my heart at or, at least, starting to. This is the view from here.
Gwenda blogs so I don't have to!
Also, as an aside, I have declared today Criminally Under-recognized Fantasists Day and put forth Barbara Hambly's name for recognition and celebration. Y'all go put forth somebody's name out in the world, too.
