Kind of busy weekend this weekend.

A combination of getting Backerkit ready and trying to catch up on all the first edits for TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION. And Thanksgiving week is gonna be weird this year, because I don’t know how much stuff the teachers are going to make the kids do before their half-days are over. If it was a normal month, I’d expect them not to be doing anything. As it is… :shrug:

But we go on. Have a good week this week, folks. Even if it gets aggravating. Things do continue on.

In the Mail: The War of the Worlds (The Criterion Collection).

I think The War of the Worlds (The Criterion Collection) is my first Criterion Collection DVD. I normally don’t go for that sort of thing, but it was half off and this is the definitive 1950s version which I didn’t have. I’m also gonna subject my kids to it this week; although admittedly they did show some interest in the clips I found on the Internet, so ‘subjected’ may be too strong a term.

Book (Short Story) of the Week: The Properties of Rooftop Air.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: The Properties of Rooftop Air is too short to be anything except a short story or novella. But it’s by Tim Powers, and it draws on The Anubis Gates, and if you’ve never read the latter then do yourself a favor and go buy that first. That’s a Book of the Week all on its own.
