Along with the friend, S.O, and myself were Marley and the latest addition to our household, Lady Bumble. She's a gorgeous 2 or 3-year-old of indeterminate origin, who had been fostered from a local dog shelter by a fantastic couple in Seoul.

In the meantime, some people have been doing some real work, such as those lovely lot over at Snubnose Press. Pulp Ink 2 is out now. The first book earned a bunch of rave reviews and this one will do the same, I wager. You lucky yanks can even get your hands on a paperback edition (and thus get to hold Eric Beetner's cover in your own hands), or buy for your fancy-dan-ooh-it's-like-living-in-the-future Kindle device here (US) or here (UK). The line up is seriously good:
MATTHEW C. FUNK
R THOMAS BROWN
Great job everyone involved: Snubnose Press, editors Chris Rhatigan and Nigel Bird, and all those writers for giving up some fantastic stories to charity.

“Murder and madness, sex and seduction, revenge and redemption, Pulp Ink has a little bit of everything going on.” – Elizabeth White of Book Reviews by Elizabeth A. White
