Place Keeper

I put up a review of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas over on The Proximal Eye.  The long and the short of it here is, I liked it.  I liked it a lot.  Go read.

I’m doing a little light reading now for the next few days while I get myself geared up to do a new novel.  (Henning Mankell, Dennis Lehane, maybe Greg Egan…)  The great office renovation is about over and I can work comfortably in here now.

For those of you with your heads tucked into your shells, it snowed last night.  Bah fucking humbug.  We stayed in, I wrote, I needed to do Other Things outside, but if I don’t have to I won’t do them in the snow.

Tomorrow there will be work-related interruptions to my lazing about.  See you after that.
