Bill Cosby describing the game of buck-buck

Let's Make A Story has been updated.

Corduroy Mtn. will be updated on the sunday,
or, the day of suns, for all ya'll borderline pagans.

authentic hanging grounds potting soil

huzzah! at last, internet access is mine. laptop is now fixed which means i can take advantage of the wifi-ness of salem. mostly, i've grown quite fond of this place and the derby wharf lighthouse. the later of which you can sit and watch inebriated people on boats try and find the marblehead docks. it is also a grand reading spot. so far, only a few awkward goth lads. the fifth annual pagan touch football benefit was a hoot.

another funny/somewhat frightening common occurrence is when our cat, who is mostly black, sits in one of the window, she draws a lot of oohs and ahhs from the locals as they walk by. if she ever went outside she'd be snatched up in a pillowcase and stoned. like, with rocks, not hallucinogens.

here's a little bit of the local flavor:

live from the witch trials!

the office has done been moved. while there's no desk yet and everything is still in boxes and spread out on the floor (so i guess i do have a desk) Greying Ghost is back in operation! all orders will be shipped either today or tomorrow. thanks for everyone's patience.

since we don't yet have internet at home, corduroy mtn will be put on hold. i'll be reading whatever has been sent in the next few days and anything accepted for publication on the website will be up at a later date. i probably won't be getting internet for a little while as i'm going to really hunker down these next few months and the ball rolling on book production again. a few things have already been formatted and a few other things have been proofed and a few other things need some revisions...so i'll be catching up on that end first.

sorry if this sounds rushed, i am at the library and i have 7 minutes of internet time left. after which i'll probably just end up walking down the various alleys and poking my head into the hundreds of witch shops here in salem. this town is amazing. if you haven't been yet, i highly recommend Derby Square Books. it is a little slice of slickened heaven.

call for subs (non-lunch content)

we be taking submissions! spread the word!

light at the end or the bottom or the top of the tunnel

a quick update on GG happenings. our move so far has been quite brutal (re: u-haul, moving in general). luckily the light at the end or the bottom or the top of the tunnel is big like a full moon! tonight we will be officially moved in, but since we had to magically cram our stuff into a temporary storage unit, book production is on hiatus until the weekend, when i'll be assembling the boettcher book, hopefully.
