I'm behind on posts here but the novel work continues steadily despite the calendar and "attendant convection" as the meteorologists say. It's not as easy this time of year, what with tornadoes around every corner, but I'm finding a balance that should satisfy my late August deadline.

Meanwhile, I shipped a friend my last copy of the magazine RE:AL, which published my short story, "They Never Caught the Sun" in Fall 2007. But I scanned it into a PDF file first. Below is the cover and a link to the PDF, which, I must warn in advance, is 22 megs in size because of my ignorance of Kinko's scanning technology and a string of pouty, even more ignorant employees. Nevertheless.

When I return from a brief storm excursion tomorrow or Wednesday, I'll post about how this story found me four years ago on a side trip to one of the many ghost towns in the Texas Panhandle.
