Zeal Never Rests

It's been One of Those weeks, thus the relative quiet.

For those keeping track, I
  • got a new manager at work,
  • got ahead of the curve on the latest VP fire drill,
  • made three turnovers for freelance magazine work (20,000 words, baby!),
  • was invited into another short story anthology,
  • fixed map issues,
  • reviewed art sketches,
  • (oh yeah) met an editor to discuss an upcoming anniversary issue,
  • read two books (China Mieville for review, Shadows Over Baker Street for fun)
  • and went out for a concert night.

I'm heading out on the town for dinner tonight. I'll be lucky if I don't nod off at the table.

So, what's the maps and art for? Inquiring (read:nosy) minds want to know...

For my Triumphant Return to the pages of Dungeon magazine. Oddly enough, the first of these nibblets will appear right after the 30th anniversary issue, and I'm excited about it. The playtesters loved it, it's got all my favorite elements, and I just had a good time writing it.

Sometimes, it's about being Old School.

the Mieville was NOT a small book. i know the bus ride is long, but damn. i hope that means it was compelling reading.

492 pages. I'm only half done, but I'll finish it tomorrow, I'm sure. It's quite engaging. Mieville is getting even better, compared to King Rat and Perdido St.

Re: whoa.
This is "Iron Council", due out in July or so. Like most Mieville, probably not everyone's sort of thing, but a really distinctive voice in modern fantasy.

Wow, cool! Now I feel extra-lame for not sending out any fiction this week.
