Have slowly come to the conclusion that the iPod isn't actually working properly -- I think the hard disk is actually damaged: computers keep losing it, telling me it's not working and they can't get to it, and transfers of files start well then die. I've tried everything else (full system restore, change computers, programs, firewires) and am now at the send it back and get it fixed or replaced stage.
Did a conference call with various entities at DC Comics this evening about ENDLESS NIGHTS -- suggested that they do a website with lots of cool material from the books on, along with Endless-themed screensavers, desktop themes and so on. If anyone has ideas for things you'd like to see DC put on such a website, send them in on the FAQ line and we'll send them along to DC.
Lucy Anne's put lots more links and such up at The Dreaming --- http://www.holycow.com/dreaming/ including the news that booksellers can nominate American Gods and Coraline for different categories in the Booksense Book of the Year, so if you work in a bookshop, then please vote for them, unless you didn't actually like them, in which case vote for something you liked better.
