Odd Ends

A review of Sybil’s Garage No. 7 from SFRevu.

Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943, a set of gorgeous photos reproduced from color slides. It’s like stepping into a combination of Carnivale, Grapes of Wrath, and American propaganda posters – really wonderful stuff!

To make up for the fact I had to work over the long weekend, I went book shopping. It’s like comfort eating, but slightly healthier…maybe. The results: Patient Zero by Jonathan Mayberry,  House of Mystery: The Beauty of Decay, by various authors, and Sympathy for the Devil, by various authors, edited by Tim Pratt.

Finally: Dear cooler weather, where did you go? What gives? Don’t be a tease. It’s not nice. Seriously.

Beyond the October Country

Beyond the country, October is a state of mind. It can come upon you suddenly, dropped into any season, like a stone into a pool. You will feel its echoes. It is a certain slant and color of light, it is a certain piling of clouds, it is a certain quality in the wind and the way it eddies and swirls. October is more than a month. It is more than a country. It is October today.
