Happy Birthday Aidan

Today is my son’s 5th birthday. He’s a whole hand years old and there hasn’t been a day where I haven’t been enriched by his existance. I’ve had some of the worst events of my life happen while he’s been alive, but he’s balanced it out. I couldn’t ask for a better kid (and this is not a slight on his younger brother).

Yes, this is way off my usual topics here, but some things have to be said. Happy birthday to my little robot-loving, Gamera watching, Lost in Space fan of a son!

Now, I’m off to get some rest and play with his remote control dinosaur. 🙂

Adventures in Snow

I had a fun time driving home in the snow last night. Route 287 in the snow. Can’t see the lines and no salt or sand trucks on the road. A 5-6 car accident happened on an ice patch just over a hill about a half mile from my exit. I’m not sure how I managed to sail through the wrecks as I slid through the scene. I was very lucky. I spent the rest of the trip home cursing the people who are supposed to take care of that road. This was a predicted storm. My little swamp town was prepared.

Ah well, I’m happier today. The snow gave me a day off from work and…

Night Shade just announced another book by Lucius Shepard. I’m not going to complain about how profilic he has been lately. It’s great after all those years of low productivity to have so much to read by him. This time around it’s TRUJILLO. This is a novel, unlike the collection of the same name that was published last year by PS Publishing. It will be available in a trade hardcover and a signed limited hardcover.
