When I’m not busy…

When I'm not busy griping about the lack of fall weather, I have to admit that the sunny, cool early mornings to the 80 degree days are really rather gorgeous. Sunlight over the mountains; cool air and a cup of steaming tea. My life is so good. I'm listening to the Shrek soundtrack, and I just can't be mopey with that playing...

Anyway, lots of work to do today -- I'll try to check back in later if I can, but in the meantime, go enjoy Strange Horizons. A fabulous issue this week, with the debut of a new ongoing comic by Rachel Hartman (author of those cool medieval articles and the fabulous Amy Unbounded). Also an alien porn story (well, it's really erotica, see, 'cause there's character development -- really. Trust me.), a great interview with China Mieville (who wrote the awesome Perdido Street Station), new art, poetry, a review -- just a jam-packed first-of-the-month issue. :-) I haven't been doing the week-by-week recaps here, so if you've missed any fiction in the last couple of weeks, you should definitely go back. Last week's story was one of my favorites so far. I so love my magazine...

And if you love my magazine too, maybe you'd like to work on it? We have a new job opening -- reviews editor! Lots of free books! What more could you ask than to spend a couple hours a week thinking about sf/f?
