Hey, the second Firefly Witch collection, CROAKED, is on sale for a limited time for a mere 99 cents. The title story is the one I get asked about the most, so to see what that's about, drop a buck and check it out!

Last night the Squirrel Boy and I finally started season 3 of STAR TREK: TOS with the immortal "Spock's Brain."  There had been some less-than-stellar episodes in the second season ("The Apple," "The Gamesters of Triskelion"), but nothing nearly as abysmal as this.  Every moment felt wrong and ill-conceived, from the utter earnestness of its absurd premise, to the 60s hairdryer learning machine, to the TWO complete brain surgeries done without mussing the patient's hair.  And we won't get into its assumptions about gender roles. Still, I would buy a t-shirt with the quote, "Brain and brain! What is brain?"

ACK! Allergies are vicious today; no amount of Allegra or Benadryl seems to cut the drainage.  Almost impossible to concentrate because of coughing. Hope everyone else is having a better time.

On Goodreads, EEL says of SWORD SISTERS, which I co-wrote with Tara Cardinal: "Aella, last of the Reapers (half-human and half-demon), is a witty, humorous, well-rounded character whom you can't help but love." Can't beat that.

Gearing up to drive to Tennessee tomorrow.  Speaking at the public library (Thursday) and high school (Friday) in Milan, TN, then attending a combined fraternity/college newspaper staff reunion at the University of Tennessee at Martin.  Should be a blast; haven't been back to west Tennessee in a couple of years, and haven't seen some of these people in a quarter-century.

Oh, did a nice plot twist present itself to me this morning while I walked the dog before dawn.  LONG BLACK CURL just got more interesting.

My Burt Reynolds rewatch continues with STARTING OVER and SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT II.

Along with DELIVERANCE, his role in STARTING OVER should have moved Reynolds from action comedies into real dramatic films.  But Reynolds was his own worst enemy, turning down the Jack Nicholson role in TERMS OF ENDEARMENT to make STROKER ACE.

BANDIT II reminded me a lot of GHOSTBUSTERS II: an amiable reunion of characters, but lacking any real comedic spark of its own. There's an undercurrent that seems to examine Reynolds' own egomania, but it's not funny and ultimately seems rather uncomfortable.

Looking forward to GATOR, the sequel to WHITE LIGHTNING, and THE END.

From the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert, Joan Jett singing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" with the reunited Nirvana.

I answer five questions, mainly about Eddie LaCrosse, for Dave Gross over at Creative Colleagues. 
Each week, I'll pester one of my creative colleagues with five questions about his or her work. Most of these folks are friends, a few are secret enemies, and one has been blackmailing me for years...
