Not really much of a blog post, but with the best photo in the world of me on a carousel ever in it so with luck nobody will mind too much

I am on deadline right now.


For the American Gods-House on the Rock weekend, as a fill-in while waiting for me to write about it, I recommend Valya's blog over at (Valya is the author of The Silence of Trees.) I stole the picture above of me riding the eagle-tiger from Valya's blog.

And yes, it was as magical and as wonderful as everyone says.

(Casey and Danni Long at the Dresden Dolls gig.)

I took Amanda to meet the people at, with whom I am cooking up some really cool stuff which I am not yet ready to talk about. I talked to them and she played a song on her ukulele. (You can see a shadowy Don Katz, audible supremo, in the background, here.)

From New York I stumbled to Austin, Texas, where I was caught up in the madness that is W00tstock, standing in for Wil Wheaton. It was madness, madness I tell you...

This is a video of me coming on. That's all I do in it. I come on. You can probably find me doing more than that elsewhere on YouTube.

These men are Paul and Storm. Founders of W00tstock.

This is Adam Savage. The man from Mythbusters. He bought the drinks.


Then I came home.


Right. Now I have to go and write, so to entertain you in my absense, here's the New Scientist link to some wonderful forgotten futures;

and here's a link to the info on the New Scientist competition I'll be judging this year 350 word short stories, including the title, on the theme of Forgotten Futures.
