Question for the Day

What will the long term consequences be of the fact that I sing Code Monkey to my kids as a lullaby?

Go Review The Ant King!

There's one Amazon review so far.... a faintly damning one from the estimable Blue Tyson, who reviews in pithy, trenchant one-liners a vast array of fiction at Free SF Reader and Not Free SF Reader. He likes A Siege of Cranes, but is less happy about the short & surreal ones. :-(

Chime in, eh? If so inclined.

USA Trip Photos

I am half-intending to blog a bit about our trip back home to DC and my subsequent jaunt to Worldcon... once the chaos of reintegration into Baslerleben wears off.

In the meantime, some photos by Karen Rosenbaum (alias mom):

Pool (we went every weekday morning)
Reading at Stacy's
Departure (I had already left for the con)

It is with great pleasure that I present the second book in a continuing series by my daughter Aviva.

(You will note that there was an interval -- of about six months -- between the composition of the first half and the last half.)

And now, without further ado...

Books ahoy!

Copies of The Ant King & Other Stories arrived at my parent's house yesterday, for me to sell at my reading tonight at Stacy's.


And Amazon and B&N are now listing the book as "in stock" (though it still says "preorder" at Powell's...)

Photos by Karen Rosenbaum, of fabulous book models Noah, Aviva, and cousin Zula.

(Disclaimer: The management has redacted certain spaghetti sauce stains, chocolate smears and scabs which were deemed not to be "on message" for this promotional exercise. Why bathe your children when there's Photoshop?)
